TRENTON PUNK ROCK FLEA MARKET

Hey there to all my New Jersey and Philly friends!

I will be vending indoors at the Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market on Saturday May 21st!

Come down and say, “Oh hi, Mike.”

In addition to my usual selection of books, prints, and paintings I will have some new prints, stickers and pins which I will be sharing soon. Batboy may also be making an appearance!

What doesn’t make you uncomfortable, Batboy?

Okay, so here’s a super secret reveal, just between you and me (cause nobody reads this blog!) I will have a limited number of these incredible iridescent holographic Batboy stickers! The reason they’ll be limited is that I have already given away fifty that will be included in the free swag bags for the first 100 people in line!

I will also have copies of Batboy and the Art of Self-Sabotage for your perusal! I am willing to sign the books for you, although that might decrease the book’s value, it’s up to you!

“Such an amazing product with so many uses around the house!”

Okay, I hope to see you guys in New Jersey!

Let’s get weird!

Happy October!

I am holding out hope that everything will turn around in October. I know that it’s the season of cold and death and decay, but it leaves me feeling quite optimistic.

Maybe everyone will stay at home and watch horror movies all month. Or they will order candy apples in the mail and have cider delivered to their door. Maybe everyone would just wear a mask for once.

Even wild men wear masks

I have two different Halloween costumes planned, even though I doubt there will be a place to wear them outside of my own living room. Maybe this year we’ll have a Zoomoween.

I’ve said it before, at least Halloween won’t be canceled in my cold, dead heart.

Like usual, I have a handful of cool projects on the horizon that I can’t share with you just yet, but believe me, they’re going to be a lot of fun. Stay tuned.

I’m preparing a short story to publish on the blog next week that I’m hoping will get the goosebumps expanding and the blood pumping faster than usual.

In the meantime, did you know that I started a YouTube channel? There are some weird, new T-shirt designs over in my store. I also hang around on Twitter sometimes, stop by and say howdy.

A Lowbrow Haiku

I’m trying something a little different today. Some of you may recall the first version of this from a few months back on the blog, it existed only as a pencil drawing in my sketchbook. But today I bring it to you in full color with sound and motion. Or at least the illusion of motion. I hope you enjoy!

Disturbing Depths


Butch coughed up the last of his tobacco smoke as the screams escaped the mouth of the mine.

“You hear that?” he looked at Red. The bug-eyed man gripped his rusty pickaxe tight across his chest.

A low vibration started in their boots; an explosion deep in the tunnel. Hot air and dust erupted, knocking them to the ground. Through the cloud, Young-Johnny came running, face bloodied, and a fine rope trailing behind.

As he reached daylight, the rope glinted then snapped taut, pulling him backward off his feet. Arms flailing, trying to grab ahold of anything, Johnny shrieked, “Spiders!”


Unusual Gifts

Need an unusual gift for a unique person? Or a unique gift for an unusual person?

I’ve reduced the prices in my Redbubble shop in addition to the crazy Black Friday weekend deals they’re offering.

If you’re in the market for original, weird and fantastical art on a coffee mug or a tee shirt, come on by.

If not, here’s a wiener dog dancing in a 1920s prohibition-era speakeasy.
