READ AND READ UNTIL YOUR EYES BLEED is a design that was inspired recently by a book that I just couldn’t put down. You know the feeling, right? Not blinking enough, eyes drying out, but you just need to get to the end of the chapter!
In other news, Batboy recently had a beach vacation, here are some shots of that:
He also recently did some journaling:
“I’ve come to realize that the phrase “This is Bullshit” is NOT an acceptable daily mantra. Or is it?
I was on the fence for a long time regarding this idea. I wasn’t sure if I wanted Batboy to be as foul-mouthed as I am in real life. Oh well.
And lastly, I have a new project in the works, it’s going to be an all new adventure featuring Batboy and his squirrel-friend Merle. Like an adventure with an actual narrative. Like a story!
I’m thinking it will be a small run of printed comics, zine style, so stay tuned if you’d like to grab yourself a copy. They should be ready in time for the Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market Back To School Jam on September 10th in Edison, NJ, where I will be vending!

I’ll leave you with some AI generated art that I made using the DALL-E mini, I give you Van Gogh Nosferatu!
I only have one piece of art to share with you this week, but it’s kind of a doozy.
I wanted to create an epic, science fiction/fantasy style illustration. You know the kind, it’s usually set in a desert landscape, there’s a giant monolith or mystical crystal floating in the center while human figures scurry about in fear or awe.
I inserted a Rubik’s Cube in lieu of an alien spaceship or a cyclopean monolith.
I’m not sure why. Maybe because the solving of this puzzle eludes me. Maybe because it’s a great Hungarian invention and that fills me with pride as a Hungarian-American. Maybe it was just a random thought. That’s probably it.
Take a look below at the finishing touches I put on this digital oil painting.
I’ve also added the above piece and a bunch of other things to my Redbubble shop, see below if you’re interested in prints, magnets, stickers, mugs or various other products.
I think that’s about it for now. I have a few new exciting commissions I am working on and I can hardly wait to share them with you!
It’s a new week and I have a few new items for you.
Their meeting place has to be kept hidden. The robots that stalk the upper surface of the Earth would never understand. The kids would be laser blasted on sight. The kids’ mission? To read and discuss all the classics of human literature. That’s the basic idea behind this illustration that I have tentatively titled “The Book Club.”
Below you can watch as I ink this rough illustration and you can chill out to the hypnotic soundtrack.
Greetings from Asbury Park, NJ!
Also this past week I revamped an old design and added to my Amazon T-shirt shop. You might recognize this slightly more macabre version of the grinning face of Tillie, an iconic sight from Asbury Park in the old days.
As a nerdy kid, being not super athletic or interested in super athletes, I kinda felt left out when others showed their support for their football or baseball or hockey teams. Below is a shirt I designed for other nerds like me. People who think they’re funny.
Celebrate a Groundhog Day Birthday with these cards, magnets and mugs from my RedBubble store.
I think that’s about all I have accomplished this past week. I’m trying to keep busy and not let the stress of daily life derail anything.
How about you? Where are you at with your projects? Your goals?
