Questionable artwork and pedantic miscellany
February 26, 2018
I was the caped crusader, now I’m the canine crusader


The presumptive back cover to the perpetually oncoming second bimshwel comic book. As always, you may click on it to get a bigger version. I do not always say this, and I realize, despite sometimes forgetting that I realize, that usually means almost nobody knows it, and in this case it is crucial to having an idea what the text says, and some of it matters.
It took longer than usual, as little grasp as I currently have on what “usual” is, since initially i drew elpse in it.

(do not bother clicking on this one) and elpse was the most-drawn thing on it at that point! Because initially the idea was just the first three frames, which I drew in a sketchbook years ago, with pog and elpse. I imagined it went into the comic book somewhere, but forgot about it when drawing the part where elpse is actually in that place. After I remembered it for this, it seemed like it could function as abstract in space and time, like a stand-alone illustration, but then I did not know what to fill the rest of the page with. And so I extended it, and it felt then less abstract, and more like it would be seen to contradict a not-yet-drawn comic page from the near future (which admittedly I thought was in the near future a year ago) in which pog and elpse have not been properly introduced. In my MIND, this and the first comic book’s back cover happen at some point in the future (comic future, not actual future, though it would also be that, if it was anything). But with elpse here I would have to explain THAT, but only once I get to the point of the apparent contradiction, and it would seem like I just screwed up and made an excuse! I have plenty enough aspects of my life to give lame excuses for without adding new ones that actually aren’t excuses because I meant them to happen that way.

Anyway the reaction, telling pog what to do, then scorning pog without acting or commenting further, suits yibrik better than elpse. Of course in addition to drawing in the character I also had to go back to every prior yibrik drawing and give tails to them since apparently I never did. The only time I ever drew yibrik with a tail previously was on the other book’s back cover! I saw it recently and didn’t remember having drawn it. But a bit later when I thought to replace elpse, I remembered that I SAW that, and decided one tail ever indicated adequate past intent to justify permanent tailage (since I no longer remember why or what I thought about any thing I did more than a few weeks ago). Of course I might decide, if I WANT to insert this somewhere later, it will be in a story about kumquat giving out tails. But then it isn’t funny for kumquat to just out of nowhere offer to give pog one. Right? Sure. So I don’t have to go and erase all those new tails I just added and fill in the background around them. Good, I was worried for a moment.
I think, if I were to go through and redraw and rewrite all this a third/fourth time, and I would roller skate on an airport runway wearing a suit of armor made out of pizza before I did, I would make yibrik a more visible character, since the way I think of yib now, argumentative but potentially harmless, is considerably different than how I thought of it back in 1995, as likely villainous, which influenced how I introduced it here eleven years after that (twelve years before now).

Does all that make sense? It shouldn’t! I work this hard so that the nonsense behind my motives does not need to be discussed.

Honestly I fail to see what the fascination is running round hitting monsters all the time but my own son is quite taken by that.


As the internet’s first, foremost/only authority on Moraff’s Dungeons of the Unforgiven, I felt it prudent that I should also have the foremost/only unofficial terrible illustration of it.

That secret of mana picture did not quite sit well with me. In fact i never finished articulating specifically how it did not. This here i probably also could have done better, but nobody else would have tried at all! And the chance that this will completely make sense to anybody is also almost nonexistent, which I can live with, because when I try to be understood, people find a way to understand the opposite and I spend hours trying explain what I meant and by the end nobody really cares. It is more efficient to start there!

I still managed to push out a small novel’s worth of moping text about it, and so I have pushed that even further! As much as bimshwel.com is at home written on restroom stalls, the website is not meant to function as a thought toilet.

It explored the origins of the Munster family and was darker and edgier, while retaining plenty of humor.[4][5][6]


I have now at last updated all the comic pages 34-69. That does not seem like a big deal, but as I was doing it and it went and onward perpetually for six months after I resumed the task last year, it certainly required a big deal of effort. And it does not feel done yet! I have these notes to myself right now
53 nemitz’s queue still needs to be drawn in, plus the ceiling lamp
63 needs to be extended to fill the page borders
64 the bridge frame looks dreadful
67 68 still have problems
68 says “urkel” (ehhdit: it now says “grakpazirs” and I have to hope I remember to change all instances of that and then again if I think of a better name, and I could hardly do worse except to revert it)
But it is done enough to show here, because otherwise another mopey entry was going up, and nobody has time for that.

see here, for the first time since 2011, maybe, whenever I STARTED redrawing everything, there is no separation between old and new versions. There is also a completely new page, now 53, that attempts to cover up some inconsistencies in elpse’s character without it being terribly obvious that it exists for no other reason. 34, which formerly was new, set up some of that. A sequence that was formerly on three pages is now on four and is more coherent. Ideally, once I get the new books made and put this mess into my stack of finished messes, I will become more coherent. The story is still boring but the IMPORTANT thing is that I will no longer be working on it! And ideally will never have to draw that ugly bed room again, and if I do it will NOT be between very old pages in which I had obsessive compulsively, slowly, drudgingly, kept details consistent and outlined, necessitating that I then resume doing the same on the new insert page to make it not seem excessively out of place. I can go back to the front with the part that I think is more interesting, and pog willing I will have a book version of THAT by 2028.

Not surprisingly, the automated comic page displaying system that I implemented a few years ago to make things easier was more difficult to update everything on, but it did not take six months. And so the first part of the second part of the first part is there.

The ownership of the family house also changed. In the original series and The Munsters Today the Munsters owned the house but in this version they’re just house-sitting for Herman’s sister.


As a child (despite the maturity level I exhibit I am in fact quite older than that) i loved looking at pictures of castles and thinking about them, and for most of my life it bothered me that i could never draw them however hard i tried. now I realize I can, so long as I keep them implausible. I made this “quickly” in the past two hours so I would have something to upload this week. Practicality and scale were not major concerns.

I am not totally sure what this is, but it is the most sincere drawing I have put on the internet in some months. It needs some more creatures, but I could add creatures all night, and I am already committed to adding unnecessary details forever to a more pressing project.
