Questionable artwork and pedantic miscellany
June 10, 2019
Ken is aware of Bison’s villainy and seeks to defeat him. During the events of Street Fighter II, Bison brainwashed Ken into Violent Ken.


page 3-39, of the questionable comic strip. One of those pages whose construction caused me to question if I really have any business making comics, but it is almost all related to drawing the environments. At least there are more interesting colors on this page. Looking back, I generally can’t tell which older pages also made me feel that way, but comparing the dates between them is often alarming. The first time I drew the gnomes was seven years ago on a page which was only about half a day ago, “story”wise!

I must have made hundreds of character “designs” over the years, and many of them have appeared in pointless illustrations. so why is it that whenever i introduce a new character in the comic strip i end up having to figure out how it looks on that very page?

When trying to figure out what squirb looked like, my goal was to draw something that would make sense for elpse to want to beat it up. Hopefully I will think of a properly stupid thing to have hanging from its neck rather than a green gold medal, but for the moment it seems of minimal importance! The creature itself is yellow, and indeed most of my secondary characters end up being yellow, presumably since none of the primary ones are, but I do not always plan in advance for them to be.

The former motif of Barney’s cereal theft was removed to focus on the enjoyment of the cereal.


or you could BUY a BAG of only marshmallows without jumping through weird hoops to appease the corporate marketing gods. This would be like Popeyes saying you could WIN a box of fried chicken skin and breading. In fact maybe twenty years ago I had a dream about being served a plate of that. I remember how round and mushy the substance on the plate was. I tried to eat it and it was disgusting. I never forgot. But the General Mills breakfast cereal company has helped me to remember it, thank you.
I can only assume the marshmallow box giveaway is a consequence of adding more and more new marshmallow types but forgetting to decrease the quantity of each produced.

here i am encouraged to TRAP the leprechaun and take this out on him. hey kids want to have a good time? eat a box of marshmallows and capture little creatures in the forest.
is there just no oversight at cereal companies? This is this is the worst disaster since Oops! Choco Donuts. As long as it only affects lame snacks pretending to be breakfast as an excuse and doesn’t mess with actual snacks

They admit this is a mistake but then claim the product is better like that anyway. I suppose they think I will say “I appreciate your honesty” but I don’t! I resent being sold defective merchandise. At full price, anyway. While this does have a yellow label that does not necessarily mean this is on sale.

Save TWO CENTS! It probably cost more to make the labels for this whole rack than somebody would “save” by making use of this offer.

As for the whoopsy cookies, if they ARE better with this mistake in place, they would be yet better if you used the mistake as a base point from which to make some informed decisions! This still needs to be inspected and approved by someone. The graphic design seems to imply that the fudge on these cookies was leaking down from the ceiling or a burst vat or something like that. How do I know this is PURE tasteless plastic keebler legally-allowed-to-be-called “fudge”? Quite honestly I am disgusted that the supermarket agreed to carry this product. Still this never would have happened if there was competent leadership at the Keebler tree. The fact of the matter is that Ernie the elf and


captain crunch are both senile white-haired old men, and one assumes lucky the leprechaun has a few centuries under his belt, in charge of food production operations that they no longer understand, and they expect to get by on their folksy charm and existing goodwill without offering anything in the way of apologies or reparations (general mills’ offer to let ME trap Lucky and issue frontier justice on my own notwithstanding). Gosh the keebler elves are using MAGIC, the FORBIDDEN arts to make these cookies and they can’t keep THAT under control. How long before it’s Oops! I summoned a werewolf army? How about this, you can sell whoopsy! over-fudged cookies and bejabbers! boxes of cereal without cereal so long as i can pay for them with my fiddlesticks! cancelled credit card

I like to conclude these entries with a final bit of text after the last picture.

“We’ve recently made an offer to quickly repatriate the waste back to Canada for disposal and we await a formal response from the Philippines government,” said spokesman Adam Austen.


comic page 3-38 of that is here. As usual I expect to clean it more later.
This is the fastest I have gotten a new one out in quite some time, but of course hardly anything happens here! And worse, there may seem to be a bit of a time anomaly since nemitz seems to be very nearby on the previous page, yet is unseen by elpse on this one, but I did not explicitly indicate how far away nemitz had gone. But this will always be confusing, i fear, but I have been majorly confused by less excusable things than this in Tintin and even Garfield comics and people who hate those comics don’t over this.

amitz this page i realized that the building i have been drawing behind the fence has a largely different design (although still a bland rectangle) when i have drawn it visible from the “street.” as that design appears in the first printed book i wonder if i will make myself change the views of it here in section 3, prospective book 5 (or 6?) or just the one view of it in section 1 and hope that nobody who got one of the first printed books cares that much. hm i suppose i will go with whatever takes more work and provides less benefit.
the same section 1 view and also a section 3 view based on it show that building as being much too far from the fence for elpse’s second-biggest fan (after the dope) to have such a good view of the proceedings. unless it is actually a very large creature roughly twice the size of elpse. but i like the idea of it being meeply. also i implied it was afraid of having nemitz thrown at it ON THE VERY SAME PAGE. which means AT LEAST the blame for screwing this up is on the me from a few years ago who drew the buildings far apart AND then indicated they were actually pretty near each other. Although the blame for shifting the creature’s window considerably further from the back of the parking lot goes to the more recent me. But a meep like that may be friends with and have access to the apartments of other meeps. That blue character is very important because apart from its remarks i have thoroughly run out of background “gags” for this scenery.

Another matter: if I were a more vulgar person I could show lope “disposing” of the toilet paper note after eating all the muffins in the first section. But I do not like to think of anybody using toilet paper in that “world,” especially “clean” characters like lope. I think toilet paper (and toilets) are funny in appearance and name but not in their function. There is stuff wrong with me!

So do not thou put forth thy specious pleas and clever words to me now, for one word of mine will lay thee low.


page 3-37 of the comic strip, one more where the layout changed way too many times to be time-efficient, and the backgrounds are increasingly turning into mush, even apart from the roads. But I have sorted through my mess of a script document where there was a considerable pileup of overlapping and redundant dialog setups so it should at least be relatively smooth going forward until the next disaster zone.

don’t say no to drugs, say no thank you

three more unrelated idiots that happened to have been sketched near each other.
I should look into putting up a picture with something happening in it one of these days!

Or at least deviate into a less-rigid setup than this one if I feel a need to keep crinkling out dumb illustrations to prove that i continue existing. And then make sure i don’t bland out the subtle distinctive elements of the original cheap sketch in my haste to not spend hours and hours on something that I know does not matter. And if I do that anyway, try to avoid looking back at the sketch and becoming aware of that after already smearing the “finished” one in front of all the same people multiple times across the different websites.

I trusted in a formula that usually results in passable mediocrity, like the Famous Studios Popeye cartoons, but every once in a while even a stable formula fails, and with nothing else behind it there is going to be something totally unredeemable, like when Popeye came home from World War 2 and the writers/management decided he should stop hitting people all the time and be more like Donald Duck and be a stooge to a cute animal or his dipfip nephews instead of an invincible meathead who won’t compromise even when it means leveling an entire town, even though his popularity stems directly from his ability to appear noble while being a destructive stubborn clod.


I won’t even talk about the terrible, totally official popeye cartoons made in 2018, because I am going to bed. The simple fact is that Popeye cartoons have been lame for most of their existence so freaking out over extensions of that trend will solve nothing. I think fictional characters should become public domain property after 70 years regardless of what boneheads swap the rights around. I think I said that ages ago in a post that I never finished because my brain is soup. They belong in their own time periods. Take them out too far and they become something else that might as well be called something else, exclusively benefiting and appealing to horrid people.
I do not want to appeal to horrid people. Not for free, anyway! Rushing for free is as beneficial as rushing for spinach.

In the end they shelved the idea because a duck who gets all excited about money just was not funny enough.

i filled the last 40 seconds better than before, but still not especially well.
///////////////////////

I made a patreon page for no other reason than that new users are to be charged 8% instead of 5% of what they supposedly take in from this point onward.
If you are not familiar with patreon, I envy you! It is a website about trying to convince people to donate meager amounts of money at you just for existing. it can be very annoying to see people constantly promoting their own pages so I aim to be cautious in how I do so.
Is there any realistic reason that I should expect any great amount of success from this? Not at all, but I sure beat my self up making a stupid video, just because the site heavily implies you should have one and I was worried the page might not be approved if I didn’t, not realizing that the “review” you submit your page for is instantaneous and probably just a filter looking for words to indicate you are a drug kingpin or Jared Fogle. Meanwhile I had almost no thought left over for what I could do with the page that would be worth attempting to charge people different amounts of money for.

this post contains the sort of description that ensures I stay obscure, so I wisely sort-of-hid it, which is the closest I come to deleting. No, nobody has to sign up for that. I just need to know that I put it there.

Also note that the video is one third irrelevant because I didn’t want to cut off the music, even though the music isn’t complete, particularly the part that occupies the filler section, and so it might as well not be there!
Gosh if I were organized enough that I could make good use of my “skill” or internet fame generating schemes I would have what’s it called a “career” and not bother with dumb old paytreeon which seems to combine them all. Your worth expressed via a number beside your name? An utterly non-functional method for sorting posts? People being encouraged to think of and express themselves as if they are “brands?” It is all there.

I can replace the video since it is “unlisted” and not being shoved at anyone who did not request it. I probably shouldn’t. I probably will. And I probably won’t mention this anywhere else until after I do that! Which means I can expect more email from the website pestering me about how little activity the page has had, because it means no five percent for them.


They all but admit that you can’t become popular unless you look like you already are. “Organic” might as well just be adjective to describe an organ.
If I had ten close friends or family members, I think this would be a rude way to treat them! What sort of person even has an “inner circle?” Cult leaders? Socialist dictators? Well that is who the ideal patreon user aspires to be. ME sending links in email is a REALLY good way to make sure that email doesn’t go anywhere, and I never know because usually people don’t reply to me anyway, and I don’t want to ask because then if they DID get it then I look impatient and pushy even WITHOUT asking them to give me money. I literally have to describe a url on the telephone if I want to send it to anybody. “aiche teetipee colon slash slash… Yes two slashes. No no not back slashes… You know the one that goes back. The upside goes back. Yes exactly. NOT that one. didn’t you get my email? No of course not.”


A few people told me I should activate the mode that charges users immediately rather than at the start of the next month, because otherwise someone can sign up, save all your pictures and distribute them. Gorby I have been trying to get people to do that for YEARS! If leaving this unchecked is what it takes then consider it taken.

Whup this seems sad again. I am not sad! Just tired.


that seems like a rather defeatist moral to take from this.

As for the corridor, I targeted the fish and seahorses and danced with some sea snakes.


Conceptually, this only took about 5 seconds.
A hurried animation example that nonetheless required days to assemble.
I will probably at least fill in white behind the moving objects and add more pauses, maybe some zooming and panning so it is less confusing, but otherwise this is not designed to be “finished,” not for a long time, anyway.
Also I would greatly appreciate a vector video format similar to flash but without all the proprietary technology and “not supported on any mobile platform” rubbish since exporting something like this as a gif is a miserable process.

In 2001, Meat Loaf changed his first name from Marvin to Michael.[63][64]


the largest component of my easter dinner — what IS this thing? Stop and Shop was still on strike and apparently this was the only size of ham remaining at the Big Y store. as in “Y is this legal?” It looks like something Asterix would eat. It looks like something Simon Belmont would find hidden inside a wall (on a plate). This might be the Roast Beast that they eat in Who-Ville. This looks like something Link would use to finish getting through Level 7. I cannot verify that every bone in this corresponds to an actual body part. This looks like what Daeneris eats to prove she is worthy to become khaleesi. This looks like the leader of Red Falcon. This looks like symbolism from Lord of the Flies that I did not pick up on while reading the book and was unable to summarize during my worst high school class. This looks like


I invite science to try and replace this with laboratory grown materials; Whatever this came from must have suffered both in life and in death. I had no idea how to cut it and none of the web pages purporting to demonstrate how to do so actually did so or even used an identifiably similar meat object if they showed anything.

Look at this it turns into Big League Chew when I put a fork in it. What IS this?
(it was pretty good)

Was it fun going up and down in the fort made of bones? Or was it scary? I wouldn’t know, because I’m only a cactus in a pot.


a commission drawing for nafradorf fumblewip featuring Vibert, a skeleton creature with many mysterious powers, such as being able to function without muscles or a circulatory system or other such things.

Usually I do not post drawings that I took money for because they often come out poorly and without something personal in them that I can laugh at to distract from the poorliness, but the last thing I put up here was worse and I evidently am adequately self conscious about that to try and dilute that by putting something in front of it but not removing it entirely. Additionally, one of my internal mental processes always insists it constitutes defamation toward whoever gave me money to have disclosed that they did so.

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.


Brienne of Norfair

i had meant to draw Brienne (from some book or tv show or something) with Samus (from some computer doohickey the kids like) years ago, but this came out instead, and more effectively distracts from my deficits drawing non-creature people.

i imagined the blood should be yellow but it doesn’t look like blood when i do that. and crocomire of course is not defeated like that, but it does insist on being attacked in the mouth.

I wrote an in-depth report explaining numerous reasons why this pictures was not functional and why I should have expected that to be the case. Exhibiting the report would likewise not be functional! None of it is anything new.
The lesson to be learned from all this is that there is no lesson because anything good that happens is a fluke occurrence. The only LOGICAL course of action is ignore all precedent and hope for magic, which I did and will likely continue to do. OR accept that I will never get anywhere and not try anything, which is not a viable option until I get on to some serious medication that makes me not care. For now, caring is inevitable.

Eh I posted it as a comment on the entry. It is not funny or trying to be, just sad and analytical.
A few hours later I removed that comment, but then I put it back. I am embarrassed merely that it exists, not due to any specific thing I said in it.
