Hey kids!

As some of you may know, my brain doesn’t always get words right. It’s always been a problem with my gray matter, but the older I get, the more my brain misfires and makes me sound like I’m having a stroke.

I don’t always keep track of them, but I’m starting to, and I’m going to start drawing as many of them as I can. The first one was a misfire while talking to Nadja about a recipe I was going to make with a number of onions, which aren’t Nadja’s stomach’s favorite if they’re not very cooked. I was asking about a change I could make.

Please enjoy my first I Don’t Words Talk Right:

Crystalize the onions Fuckbrain Comix

Doing a completed drawing every few days isn’t exactly #Inktober, but #Drawtober works just fine with me.

Tomorrow you might have the horrifyingly blood-soaked very strange next bit of The Wizard’s Lesson as well as a bit about the best new horror movie I’ve seen in ages.

Love,

benjamin
Who’d crystallize YOUR onions any day….

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

I’m marginally surprised that nobody seems to have found my Easter Egg in Tuesday’s comic….

In any event, today’s Fuckbrain Classic is from 8 years ago, when my OCD was far worse than it is now. While I still stick to most of the rules in this comic, I’ve been able to overcome a few of them.

Fuckbrain Comix Presents Using a Public Restroom 2

I’m just wigging the fuck out of y’all this week, aren’t I?

This was the first Fuckbrain Comix that I’ve done using a way larger paper–11×14–and I’m well-pleased with the results. I’m using the same size for my next project–an adaptation of a wonderfully bizarre Chinese folk tale–and it’s working well for me there, too.

Much love to my sweet Robot, for it was she who convinced me to draw on nicer paper than just the stuff in the printer. (-_-;)

You’ll soon see various archives sections pop-up on the website, so keep an eye open for more posts about old comics being uploaded. Not sure if I’ll do a So You Don’t Have To archive here, but I might.

Anyroad, I hope this comic doesn’t make you feel dirty. If it does, go wash your hands.

Not that it will help.

Love,

benjamin
Who reminds you that this comic becomes copyright-free on April 1st, 2024.

I absolutely despise when one of my conditions rears its head while I’m doing something important. One of the most infuriating is when my OCD flips on while I’m drawing.

I tossed this off after struggling mightily on the first page of the Chinese folk tale I’m drawing as my next project. Let’s not talk about how much I did this last night:

OCD when drawing

My drawing style kind of hinges around me not taking a preposterous amount of to do it. Part of the “charm” is that there’s a spontaneity to the pieces, and that if you look carefully you can see all the mistakes I’ve tried to digitally remove. Over-thinking my art condemns me to a purgatory of questioning each pencil mark, the opposite of what I want.

So be it.

Here’s a photo of the side-entrance to Stone-Robot Enterprises for you. We don’t use it much because, a) We’re hippies, b) It’s protected by golems not created by us.

...my brain was acting up last week.

Usually When I'm This Happy Fuckbrain Art

Sample dialogue from Stone-Robot Enterprises:

"Baby, your Bellerophon is ringing."

"This recipe calls for one meejum grunyun and a half cup of meef."

Seriously, about every fourth sentence has a made-up, bullshit word. I am a far worse sinner than [livejournal.com profile] fairyarmadillo, though, when my Tourette's/OCD gets going....

Fuckbrain Comix - Feet on Deadly Leaves



------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    
For as far back as I can remember, up until about 18, my brain had convinced me that all pointy leaves on the ground during fall had poisonous tips. This meant that I could step downward on them, but if one blew towards me, I would leap appropriately to dodge.

OCD makes you do some weird shit.

To this day, I sometimes find myself staring a little too hard at the sidewalk in front of my feet during autumn....

Love,

benchilada: (GATECRUSHER!)

Fuckbrain Comix has undergone some changes.

Since a lot has changed in my life--and since I only have so much crazy that I can do full-sheet comics about--it's time to reduce the size and focus on incidents.

There will still be some larger ones, but they will mostly be more bite-size.

Please to enjoy.

Love,

benjamin


Please excuse all the lines and things through this. It was my first time using Bristol board for a Fuckbrain Comix, and not only did I neglect to use a photo-negative blue pencil, but I also pressed too hard. After about 40 minutes of touch-ups on a VERY ugly scan, I decided that this will do.

Oh, and to show you how hard it is to draw when you can't draw:

This was a 9 x 13 sheet of Bristol board.

CONCEIVING / PENCILING - 2 hours
INKING - 2 hours
COLORING - 20 minutes
SCANNING / CROPPING - 20 minutes
DIGITAL TOUCH-UP - 40 minutes

So, from a blank sheet to this entry: 5 hours and 20 minutes.

Zounds.

Please to enjoy!

HEY! I MADE YOU A "ART"!


Links to the things mention in the comic are located beneath the, uh...the comic.

Fuckbrain Comix - Ow Ow Ow resized

Trust me, my pimp limp is very rarely this bad anymore. This was shot shortly after it started, when it was really forceful.



And here's the link to the voice post I made while having a really horrific night. If you listen you for it you can occasionally hear me hitting the back of head. :(

Smooches,

benjamin

And, cross fingers, there might be some stories on the way. There's a bit of a chance that my artist's block is finally fading away.

There's also a chance that I ate the Queen of England for breakfast and your mom's a weasel. So there's that.

In any event, enjoy some text-fucking-heavy FUCKBRAIN COMIX:


Fuckbrain Comix presents Mesemerism and Art

There you have it. That's what you get when you write a comic during some lovely manic-swings. Apparently you favor hoards of text over leaving space for art.

NEON ART: "Human Nature/Life Death" by Bruce Nauman. Remember, those were randomly blinking on and off.
NO VIDEO, BUT A PAGE ABOUT THE SHORT FILM: "Dance or Exercise on the Perimeter of a Square (Square Dance)" by Bruce Nauman

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] blackcat2086 for helping me get that second title.

OFFICIAL BEERS OF THIS FUCKBRAIN COMIX: Modelo Especial and Tecate
OFFICIAL COFFEE STAIN: "Escobar's Blend," straight from the Columbia Street Roastery

Yeah, I know, it's been a year since I did a Fuckbrain Comix...but 2008 was an unpleasant time, in many ways.

Take, enjoy, and I'll see you next year...



First of all, a hearty welcome to the...good lord, over forty new people who came here from my post over in [community profile] food_porn. I hope I can keep you entertained! You came at a good time, as it's time for another of my semi-regular features, this one about my myriad of neurological disorders. So...

Hey kids! Fuckbrain Comix!
