No art for the week of Christmas. Perhaps you’ll get ALL of the remaining Wizard’s Lesson next week. I’m gonna be finishing it up during my days off.

I did you up a nice Toys in the Bookstacks. Please enjoy.

I really enjoy doing my Toys in the Bookstacks, and I must admit that I loved finding the books for this one. I don’t know as though I’ve ever done one that wasn’t intended to just be funny before.

The moral is simply that I made you something.

Love,

Facing Death - Bird Feeding

Originally published at benchiladaland. You can comment here or there.

I’d apologize for letting you down on content last week, but I’m not sure that any of you give a shit.

And that hurts.*

I’ve got two pages of The Wizard’s Tale ready for scanning tomorrow, and may be able to finish a third before heading to Oakland for nine days. You’ll be getting some content those days, but likely in the form of photos and stories about how awesome it is in California.

Don’t try to rob us, though; our home will be guarded by a ferocious old cat and a friend who is staying there and being afforded an exception to Stone Robot Enterprises‘ “NO GUNS” rule.

A few weeks ago Nadja figured out what her Halloween costume would be, and a few days ago I figured out mine.

This is important, because Halloween is my favorite holiday. It even beats out Van Riebeeck Day, which is a VERY close second*.

While I’ve had a few years where Halloween costuming was superceded by extenuating circumstances, generally, when I actually do Halloween, I don’t believe in pissing about.

Here’s one of my favorite homemade costumes:

I really hope you recognize it or can figure it out. No worries if you can’t, though; I’m here to help.

You can find more behind the jump at the bottom.

Did I mention I’m getting a new tattoo in California? I didn’t?

The hell I didn’t; go back two sentences.

Anyways, time to get back to the culling. These rabid [REDACTED] aren’t going to [REDACTED] themselves, after all.

Love,

MOAR COSTUMES!

Originally published at benchiladaland. You can comment here or there.

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

Hello, LJ! To get away from the bitching on FB (and because I still have little use for G+), I'll possibly be dropping in here more often.

Now entertain me. And each other.

PHOTO CHALLENGE:

Strangest/most-interesting thing
near you right now, or when you are near
a camera and can upload something.


Life and Assassination of James Fisk Jr

RIGHT IN THE ASS, TOO!!!

Rich, rare, and racy letters? Sound like James Joyce's personal life, AMIRITE?!

We had a fucking awesome week in Shanghai with my brother Nathan and old friends of hers--and new friends of mine--Tinny and Jarek. We are slowly putting up pics on our Flickr accounts. Here are some of mine and some of hers. Click on them to be whisked away to that person's Flickr account. More pics are forthcoming.

If nobody's in your shop, why not nap with your dog? Makes sense to me.

Store owners get bored too

benchilada: (Internet Monkey King)

Haven't done it in a year-and-a-half, so...


MONKEY ROLL CALL!


There are a shitload of you and I don't know all of you, nor will I ever be able to. Still, I like to have photo reference. I even have a folder on Bettie (my laptop) with photos from the previous times I've done this, with filenames like "smileybead from LJ." Don't think of it as a nightmarish obsession, think of it as "My Brain Doesn't Fucking Remember Anything Are These My Pants Oh God Not Again."

Anyway, here's your chance to show off.


Take a picture of yourself right now.

Don't change your clothes, don't fix your hair, just take the picture.

Post the picture with no editing.

Beneath it, give us a brief bio, tell us where you live online, and what it is you do that should delight us.

Me at work

Damn, my teeth look all gnarly in this photo...in any event...

BRING IT!


Love,

Your Friendly Neighborhood Internet Monkey King
It's been at least 8 months, so I'm allowing myself one stupid meme:

Take a picture of yourself right now
Don’t change your clothes, don’t fix your hair… Just take the picture
Post the picture with no editing
Post these instructions with your picture




IF YOU FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS LIKE A SHEEP, YOU BETTER POST A COPY OF THE PHOTO IN THE COMMENTS HERE, TOO.

[profile] karmabreeze is having a SALE on her award-winning photography!

It's bee-yoo-tee-ful stuff.

        

She's had a number of shots up on the Kodak display screen in Times Square and you should buy something from her.

IT'S MAD-RAD AND IT'S RIGHT HERE.
In response to This Morning's Post about her, Lovely Wife Sara had the following to say:

"Ugh.  That picture is horrible.  I look like a crazy caged animal who has given up on life.  I am the poster child for zoo animals.  Oh well.   I guess we all have a calling and this happens to be mine.  I just need to stop before I start throwing poop and gnawing on my own flesh."

Do you see?

Do you see why I love her more than cheese?

Somebody sent me a mystery drawing.

Sadly, I don't recognize their real name--which, along with the address--is all I have to go on.

So, if you live in Beaumont, Texas, and you sent me...


...then this is my command to you:

Well, being sick for a week-and-a-half prior to Halloween really kinda crushed most of my costuming hopes (as did the prices of items I needed to do my primary costume idea), so I ended up with more props than I did actual costume.

It wasn't HORRIBLE, for having been cobbled together on such short notice and with no money and after/while being sick.

It was still one of my weakest costumes ever. Still, at least I did something.

You may be asking yourself what's going on here. I mean, it's clear that I has a bucket, but...



Well, you see...


It was funny / sad how few adults got any of this, and how many young people got the stuff without me saying a word.

Reasons to love [profile] gutter_monkey, Chapter 19:

Trust me, it's even better than you think. And this is installment...four?...of this series.

Click the pic.

As she stared into the blinding sky, she was secretly happy that the nations of the world had refused her demands.

Sure, it meant that the planet she eventually ruled would be a nightmarish radioactive wasteland, but at least this way she knew that her Brutal Laser of Truth actually worked...



EDIT: Flickr keeps saying that the photo is unavailable. If you don't see it above, then click here.

I love [livejournal.com profile] g0dz17la  and [livejournal.com profile] livenud .

They went to lovely Egypt and while there they thought of me.
They sent me a comic--which I haven't scanned yet--in Arabic.

And they sent me something that has immediately become one of my favorite possessions.

Something with music...and lamp beautiful.

This:




More photos and...HOLY SHIT! I MADE A VIDEO OF IT! LIVING FUCK! )
Hey.

You.

I'm certain that many of you have seen these Silver Surfer displays at theatres:



Check out the sign on it at the Beverly Theatre:

Wish I could remember whose journal I lifted this from...

Request photos from my life, and I'll take 'em for you. (i.e. my fridge, up my nose, where my cat sleeps, favorite chinese restaurant employee, food I eat for lunch thursday, et cetera).

They'll all be posted.

Oddly, requests for testicle shots, et al, will not be honored. Unless money changes hands.

RELATED: I have another FIVE QUESTIONS done and I've started another HERO A DAY. I also only have one section left to pencil on a new Fuckbrain Comix, then I have to ink and color it...
