Today, no talk! Only art!

NEXT TIME, shit gets even more realer. Seriously, it’s where The Wizard’s Lesson takes a hard right into WTF.

Sometimes insomnia is a total bastard, refusing to let you focus long enough to do anything other than watch bad infomercials and half-assedly flip through comic books.

Last night I drew the entire next page of The Wizard’s Lesson for you. That makes two art posts in two days. I’m getting marginally better at this.

As always, click the pic to make it bigger. I think.

Apologies for my website’s misbehaving last week. It seems that most people couldn’t see this comic due to some anti-spam plugin malfunction, so I’ve reposted it.

I’ve had the plugin shot.

Nearly everything in my Fuckbrain Comix has actually happened. Sure, I’ve never actually had a dog cry at me, or had my brain leap out of my head, but with the exception of a smidge of little white lies—you wouldn’t begrudge me a little hyperbole…a drop—all of these events are true. There’s a fun difference with this one, though. Most of the other ones have been very brain-specific to me. But with this…

YOU can pretend it was happening to YOU.
YOU can imagine the smell, the sounds, the revulsion.
The only thing you can’t do is Choose Your Own Adventure.

If you don’t have the genitalia or aim to put yourself in my shoes—stop looking between my legs—then take some lessons or pretend that you’re using one of these.

Now then, let’s talk about the people to whom I wanted to shout…

Fuckbrain Comix Urinal Beast
Fuckbrain Comix Urinal Beast 2
Fuckbrain Comix Urinal Beast 3

You can still smell it, can’t you? Don’t think about the bottom of your shoes.

Ta-ra,

benjamin

Drew a page of a new Fuckbrain Comix: OCD Edition for you last night, but was unable to get it scanned to release today. Two more pages of it to draw, as well as the next page or two of The Wizard’s Lesson. Weekend plans, then.

A combination of factors–persontimes, medication changes, and generalized stress–have been making my Tourette’s extra mean for a few days. I can feel the verbal outbursts just on the edge of expression, but thankfully they haven’t manifested yet.

 

My hip twitches–to blazes with them!–are increasing again, which often leads to this:

 

I’ve been having right leg issues, which once led me to have to walk like this for a year or two. I’m still not completely over what my friends affectionately call my Pimp Limp:

 

 

Now that I’ve rambled and bitched for a bit, I should let you know that my next blog entry will be better written. I’m adjusting how I approach this site again; not just art, but proper posts, too. I miss talking about things off of FB, and this allows me to connect with other people and discussions through my Twitter, Livejournal, et cetera,

We’ll see how that works out. 🙂

Love,

benjamin

Hey! I drew a new page of The Wizard’s Lesson for you down a bit.

Before we get to that, though, I just need to put part of an old story here.

Certainly not because I’m about to finish new things with this character. Heavens no. Why would I let a marginally-beloved character have new life after years of being allowed to languish? I mean, it’s not like I once wrote about him so often that my fiancee Nadja Robot made me an action figure of Reginald.

Anyroad, here’s a bit of words:

——————
“Bored,” said Sir Reginald to nobody in particular as he threw a fifty peso coin across the room. It ricocheted off of a bronze statue of JFK, which yelped in pain.

“Bored,” he repeated, throwing another coin at the Stone of Unyielding Sorrow, which hung from the ceiling by a rope. He missed, and the coin instead landed in the bucket under it, the one that collects the tears and blood that slowly leech out of the stone.

“Bored,” he said a bit louder and flicked another coin at the back of Willy, the ghost that lived in Sir Reginald’s house in exchange for assistance with matters that only a ghost can assist with. His name wasn’t actually Willy, but Reginald liked that better than its real name. The coin flew through the ectoplasm and landed in a tank of fetid water that may or may not have had a very tiny coelacanth in it.”

To Read The Rest….
——————

And now…the drawing part.

And now…

Wizards Lesson Part Nine

Nadja has been working on some costumes for Carnivale Debauche recently, so we put on movies in the background.

We saw Raiders of the Lost Ark, one of the three Indiana Jones movies. THREE, YOU BASTARDS!

We then did Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the most regrettably plotless of all the Harry Potter films. I love the Dementors so much, but there’s a whole lot of not a lot going on in the movie.

Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home still stands up. The jokes are hilarious, and for the love of god, it really doesn’t matter why there’s a whale probe (not that kind, pervert) or why their “S’up, fuckers?” message destroys starships and planets. The meat of the movie is the fun acting of the cast and the ridiculous jokes. 🙂

The trailer for STIV:TVH is hilarious, as it’s effectively a series of clips, in order, from the film…opening scenes to the climax of the film. It’s one big spoiler.

Spoilers. Seriously.

Anyways, I have the next page of The Wizard’s Lesson scanned and ready to upload next week. Starting a one-shot tonight or tomorrow night.

Love,

Wizard Lesson 8-9 thumbnail

Hey there, kids!

Another page of The Wizard’s Lesson is ready.

WHAT HAS TRANSPIRED BEFORE:

Part One
Parts Two and Three
Parts Four and Five
Part Six
Part Seven

 

PART EIGHT:

 

Wizards Lesson 8 and 9

 

I’m going to try to up my output on them so I can have at least a half-assed bound edition for Madefest 2014, where Stone Robot Enteprises will be sharing a booth with the delightful and talented Sophie McMahon. Updates to come.

As soon as The Wizard’s Lesson is finished, I’m going to get going on my next project, XXXX XX XXX X XXXXXXXXXX [working title].

It occurred to me that I haven’t mentioned the original source of The Wizard’s Lesson. The earliest translation of it in English was done by a fellow named Li Fun Yen, in the late 19th/early 20th century. He apparently lived rather a disillusioned life. I’m glad he did some work on spreading knowledge of his country’s history before things went south. When I finish the comic, I’ll have more details on him.

Notes on Upcoming Projects:

– More of the Wizard’s Lesson
– Two one-shots about people being filthy douchenozzles
– See previous bunch of X’s
– New Sir Reginald story [Jeez, I haven’t written one in over 2 years]
– Finish that nude sketch of you

I think that’s all.

See you tonight. You won’t see me.

Love,

benjamin

S’up, kids?

Got another Whodorable for you:

Pick it up! Pick it up! My brain fell out of my mouth!

Honestly, I only count The Littlest Cyberman as the other completed one; Daw’vros was just a sketch for a concept I couldn’t get quite right. I’ll be re-approaching him soon.

Can’t guarantee a new Wizard’s Lesson page this week, but I can definitely assure that you’ll get at least one next week, as well as another post.

Oh, also, My Favorite Robot has a new cocktail entry up on her personal blog, Snack the Knife. It’s a good one. Like, seriously, you should read it. We listened to some AWKWARD music for reference….

Somebody tell me a story.

Love,

benjamin

MY FIRST HUGE FUCKING SPLASH PAGE!

It’s here that the reason this is one of my favorite folk tales becomes very evident. What was previously an exercise in monetary vice, charity, and morality becomes…well, what you see below.

And trust me, this ain’t even to the WEIRD shit yet.

WHAT HAS TRANSPIRED BEFORE:

Part One

Parts Two and Three

Parts Four and Five

Part Six

And now…CLICK TO MAKE IT HUGE:

Whatever we smoked was so good that I don't remember smoking it.

I know, guys. I know.

And we haven’t even gotten to the part where….

Man, I really like movies.

Over the past few years, I have occasionally gotten the itch to draw something from a favorite movie and then have people guess what it is.

NOW IT IS THAT TIME AGAIN.

Prizes are offered for correct answers:

First Place: Nine
Second Place: More
Third Place: Relax

Anyroad, here’s the latest, and you can find the rest after the jump.
