Patlabor is important to me.

More on that later, because I’m on vacation. For now?

Please enjoy the amazing pre-color linework that Matt Decker of Premium Tattoo laid down for my latest geek tattoo, making it 5 for 5.  NOTE: My arm is curved, so Alphonse’s ear is actually way longer and Noa’s face is not as angular.

Also, I really haven’t been able to find any other Patlabor tattoos online. I may be–as I am almost certain I was with the tattoo below–the first person to have one. No matter what, I now have my two favorite shows represented on each shoulder.

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

The Brain Race

Over the last, ermm…lots of years, I’ve been doing a regular thing where I have a preposterous amount of fun taking my toys into the bookstacks and finding appropriate books for them.

The setups vary from comic book humor, to pop culture humor, to NOBODY WILL GET THAT JOKE, BENJAMIN.

I have some new ones planned out, so I thought I’d familiarize people with some of my older ones.

Also, if all goes well, you’ll have the first splash page of The Wizard’s Lesson tomorrow morning. Here are Part 1, Parts 2 & 3, Parts 4 & 5, and Part 6.

More Toys in the Bookstacks behind the cut.

Now go hug somebody.

Love,

benjamin

THE DALEKS WILL BE THE DOMINANT LIFE FORM IN THE ENTIRE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL!

See, here’s the problem.

I really love drawing, but I’m really not that good at it. I really enjoy it, I usually enjoy my end results, but sometimes it’s really frustrating.

I drew this little guy last week, but he was only intended as a preliminary sketch for my small Doctor Who Monsters series. After I drew him, I used tracing methods and freehand methods and none of my follow-ups look as good yet.

It’s very, very difficult for me to do accurate recreations of things when I draw them, whether I’m drawing from an original or freehanding based off of a sketch. There is a strange and fundamental disconnect between my eyes, my brain, and my hand when it comes to replicating things. So be it.

I’ll revisit him later, I’m sure, but for now, please enjoy my sketch version of

DAW’vros,|

THE DALEKS WILL BE THE DOMINANT LIFE FORM IN THE ENTIRE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL!

See you next week with the first page of my new Fuckbrain Comix.

The Littlest Cyberman

Now you’ve done it. Now you’ve gone and fucking done it. Shit.

Welcome to benchiladaland beta.

After about a billionty years of planning this, I finally got it up and running thanks to that most delightful of dames, the fiancee I fancy, Nadja Robot.

Expect the usual Fuckbrain Comix, Inappropriate Comix, and photos, only more better and more often, as well new serialized comics and new writing.

  • Yer gonna get art at least once a week.
  • Yer gonna get at least two entries per week.
  • Yer gonna see archives of old works and new features appear as the site unfolds.
  • Yer gonna check the ribbon to the right for other places that I live on the tubes.
  • Yer gonna click the links and see the rest of Stone Robot Enterprises.
  • Yer gonna get a backache sitting like that.

Some of those may be hopes as opposed to realities. Not the bit about how you’re sitting, though, for the love of fuck.

And now, please to enjoy the first piece of original art up on benchilada.net, also part of a new series:

 

THE 9 1/2TH PLANET,
or, The Lil’est Cyberman:

The Littlest Cyberman

See you sooner than you think, with a comic about copyright and a comic about…just…ugh. You’ll see.

I’m so close I can smell you,
