Questionable artwork and pedantic miscellany

locksnake should keep inquisitive hands to themselves

with the amount of words in there it had better be self explanatory. however you may need to click at it to be shown a more legible version.
The main point this sets out to prove is to myself; often complaining about things with words is less effective than using pictures of words, but and so I needed to try it like this to finally shut myself up about it! Although having said that it is generally unwise to believe anything that a snake tells you or tells me.
I suspect it may have especially missed the mark because the first, so far the only “like” this has in its favor (for I am yet paranoid enough to check) within the facebook is from one of the specific people whose confounding behavior inspired it.

The transcription factor “forkhead box O” (FoxO) has been identified as a critical driver of the continuous self-renewal of Hydra.[17]

page 50 of part 3 of this

initially I drew a vague gift basket but then I looked back and realized the basket was already in a box with an address label on pages that are already printed and thus inadvisable to alter, and it also wouldn’t make sense for between the old pages and now that box to have been placed inside ANOTHER box that also had the address on it. At least in any other comic strip it wouldn’t, but there is already enough here that nobody but me understands so I need not introduce additional layers of that just so I can have a pointless “reveal” that I probably won’t get to for another two years that is nothing more than a pink box with a basket inside it!

Still the matter is unfortunate because this creature looks VERY stupid being proud of itself for holding that.

i lie awake, i toss and turn, i see your face, and it makes me burn

a creature known as nemitz preparing to do/possibly already doing something annoying. nothing new. There may be other components of this scene which are also not new since I drew it over somebody else’s character that I drew last year and felt inadequately appreciated for. That doesn’t mean I LIKE nemitz, but I am accustomed to the person responsible for nemitz not liking me, and I know at least that is one dislike that I deserve! I have many massive character flaws, for example, drawing flawed characters, foremost nemitz.

i have returned at last to working on the comic strip but had unfortunately left myself months ago with a complicated page to figure out, though at least it lacks nemitz. hopefully in the remainder of 2021 I will do more things that I only regret once!

Promotions for the April 5, 2008 Christopher Walken/Panic! At the Disco episode of Saturday Night Live referenced the “More Cowbell” sketch. The cowbell did not appear during the actual episode.

recently in the frozen food section at my local El Shoppo supermarket i was overcome with an unnatural feeling. something wasn’t quite right but was quite corny

no not that

there is NO WAY goya fit THAT much disco into these tiny little bags. i am not by any system of measures a music theory expert but i have spent a night on disco mountain and I recognize when someone is jive talking and telling me lies.
Is the pan demic causing a disco shortage? We have been down to one beegee for a few years now, it is little surprise that the strategic disco reserve is at an all time low. Maybe Goya is concerned about causing an outbreak of disco fever but that is no excuse for surreptitiously downsizing the disco. Goya has come under criticism for its close relationship with the Trump administration, and I would hate to think they knew what was going on all along and were colluding to drive up the price of disco. It is bad enough I can only afford a fifth of Beethoven.
According to one disco expert, quote: “I couldn’t get enough, so I had to self destruct.” He seemed optimistic that satisfaction would come with a chain reaction but those are the words of a desperate man and I don’t think anybody should have to resort to such measures. He further purported to have “heard somebody say ‘burn baby burn'” but would not discolose the identity of his source. The blood will be on Goya’s hands if disco enthusiasts across the land begin exploding due to disco deficiency. It’s tragedy when you lose control and you got no soul.

ah this box size looks a bit more accurate but what? 40 discos?! impossible! even if it were possible that would be TOO MUCH disco! You would be crazy like a fool to try and take that much. I contend that at proper size 10 is a whole lotta disco and probably at about the periphery of safe discosages. It is hard enough staying alive as things are. I would like to report that there is no need to feel down; that’s the way I like it, but Goya seems inclined to turn it upside down. Believe me, I don’t like having to report on this and you shouldn’t have to worry about it. You should be dancing, yeah. Also We Are Family is bloody awful.

it’s hard to answer your question of why we were naked

I scream you scream we all scream for nemitz’s immediate and unconditional termination
I can tell nemitz is VERY proud to have served that. Of COURSE nemitz owns a GOLD scoop. which is to say, nemitz STOLE a gold scoop. or stole a regular scoop and painted it gold. Or most likely stole a scoop and gold paint and annoyed somebody else into painting the scoop gold. What a thoroughly stupid and complex sequence of occurrences.

However, why would anybody go to a store where that thing is behind the counter, much less initiate a transaction? and then why would you stand there and watch while nemitz delivers this ludicrous order, and THEN have a problem? Those customers should be fired also.

I had “chris” under toppings section early on in production because the father of my niece is named Chris with the actual last name of Topping but it seemed improbable he would see this, and most of the people who will see it likely do not know who he is. Of course chris is still a strange thing to have on your dessert so please do not go and do that just because nemitz isn’t offering to do it for you. There are more stupid possibilities than nemitz can possibly get to, which is one of mits few redeemingish qualities.

indeed! with those prisoner’s clothes, we couldn’t use our best attacks!

What rinkety dinkety fisher price gallows, that frame should be made of bright purple plastic. The intent is certainly here but for lack of a better word the execution is not. I understand being afraid of the goons who set this up but they are buffoons and will never win. Seeing this thing makes me want to start guessing letters, not submit to trumpdumb. I am more afraid of my obsessive compulsion from the center beam being just SLIGHTLY too short to cover the tops of the two support beams than from what any of the people who assembled them that way are going to do to me. Although to be fair i am white and did have a christmas tree in my house.

There are people on the internet’s favorite websites and in commercial news reporting who want everyone to be afraid and paranoid all the time. When people are afraid they make terrible decisions and lose their ability to look after themselves. I encourage you to be aware and cautious but not afraid. especially not of

this guy, “the Q Shaman,” and his sickly dwarf ward sidekick. Q not for “questionable life choices,” but “q anon,” a gang of angry mostly/entirely white men who bond over their white manliness and a belief that the us government is run by pedophiles. i am supposed to believe this dork who wears fur and no shirt in public and openly chums it up with nazis and confederates is deeply concerned about pedophilia. When I found out his name was Q Shaman I thought he should have purple fur and a bell on his head and be marching on Sesame Street. I assume he went to Washington DC instead because Mantaur was busy.

It is a bit like those fake political parties in England, but those are just rich idiots wasting their own money on being ridiculous and being fully aware of how ridiculous they are.

They believe in the words of someone called “Q,” someone who is anonymous and therefore could actually be anybody at any time and never has to be accountable.

Either this guy is doing it all as a gag and it is all meaningless and nobody should take him seriously or he is completely serious and insane and nobody should take him seriously. He was only arrested today after I started writing this, for his part in breaching the capitol, three days after doing it, and two days after calling the Federal Bureau of Investigation himself and then openly disclosing in this interview that he had done so, like he is proud of that. The question is not why did it take three days to get him, but why he wasn’t in jail before that. I don’t know if he constituted a legitimate threat to members of the government but he is an insult to all intelligence.

It reminds me of some forum I was on in 2008 called “coti” where I could never tell if anyone was kidding or cruel, and they could always retroactively claim cruelty was kidding. I was banned from that forum for saying brief silly things that were only tangentially relevant. And THIS guy whose every single post was 80% the same enormous “joke” images that were absolutely never relevant was very much pushing for it while promising payment of improbable fellatio in return and treated like the more rational party. I like pretending he went on to become a decent person.

I also to this day subconsciously imagine he literally IS this guy, who now officially wouldn’t look out of place wandering around the US capitol, even though ostensibly he was making fun of the fact that this guy exists. But you can’t tell and no one will tell you and if you ask they’ll call you a faggot and get you banned and the friends you followed there will let them, retweet their gross webcomics at you later, possibly marry and start patreon-begging youtube series with them.

oh to donovan’s reef with THIS guy. I wasn’t even TALKING about him.

Let’s be fake positive fluff-suited balrogs and get paid for it

Really what was I EXPECTING? I know better now. I may not have done anything with that knowledge, and the imbecile dressed like Legends of the Hidden Temple got scorned and arrested without my input, but I know precisely why he and people like him irritate me so much. It goes so far beyond and below Trump. People of that sort are essentially nihilists. They believe in nothing, and don’t care if someone gets hurt. They crusade against evil they have no proof of while taking willful creators of evil as their jolly companions.

It is sadly old news by now that every closed institution is rife with sexual predators. The us government has been particularly bad at concealing lewd misdeeds. I don’t believe that anybody who supports Donald “Grab ‘em by the pussy, You can do anything” Trump beyond all shadow of reason is fighting for the rights of the oppressed. After the 2016 election I believed in learning to live with Trump as president and waiting to see if he really would screw it up as badly as people said he would, so maybe it seems disingenuous for me to quote something he said BEFORE the election, but in the full context we can see that everything bad he did before the election he also did after the winning the election, and he did it worse after losing the other election. It is preposterous that anybody would put themselves at risk trespassing in the capitol building just to get social media clout. It is ALSO preposterous that it only took THIS for Trump’s fans inside the government to finally turn on him.
in 2016 I thought they would refuse to back Trump, at the risk of splitting the party, but the party and winning were all that mattered, and are still all that matter. Everybody rushing to condemn Trump NOW who were trying to get him elected and RE-elected do not deserve any more congratulations than the forklogans with secessionist flags who are only more guilty an account of not recognizing that the tide has turned. I will forgive real people who show contrition, but I don’t think many, if any, of Trump’s former enablers have, will have, or ever have about anything. Least of all Mitch Mc-will-never-be-Gonell, safely re-elected and free to put forth the appearance of decency short term. People like that have done more damage than Trump; Trump only made their game more obvious and decided to stop playing it properly after he lost. He pledged to drain the swamp and instead wallowed in it for four years, and then the swamp drained him after he formally invited the tar pit to join the fun.

A swamp is in fact a crucial wet-land habitat for animals and plants and I hate to associate it with the likes of Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz who would gladly see all real beneficial swamps replaced with walmarts, so “good” I will probably stop hearing that particular phrase used for a while.

I would also welcome never hearing about “celebs” or what they want that they don’t already have ever again.

2020 in pictures










octo the huge



I am glad to see that was almost not terrible!

January 1, 2021
In the Game Boy Advance version, Mickey’s eyebrows are removed during closeups because Mickey had a slightly short face change appearance in the 21st century Mickey Mouse Cartoons.

numerous misguided illustrations from 2020 and at least three guided ones in video form. Please accept my condolences if you recognize them all. I do not believe that there is any single website on which every one appeared.

I completely forgot to make a “2020 in pictures” post because I suspected a video like this would be slightly more striking, and when I did one last time I didn’t get it out until january 6! finding 12-24 static pictures shouldn’t take me longer than part of one day, so it will probably be ready by January 4 at the latest.

i sped up tedious or extra embarrassing items but I have not knowingly excluded anything apart from numerous frames from beet cartoon part 3 because many are not “finished” and if they were this would essentially be that video instead of this one.

In 2020 was the conclusion of my first botched free “sketch” giveaway and the entirety of my second, which means possibly the most amount of other people’s characters I have drawn in one year, and I do not intend to do that a third time. I am curious as to if that means I will have fewer illustrations overall in 2021 and more other types of works, or if I will simply glop up more needless illustrations of my own marginally thought out concepts as a consequence of fearing i will be forgotten if I do not post at least one finished dumb picture every week. Smart pictures are unlikely.

The music, something is missing in the second half that will give it the depth I desire, but the conclusion after that point only works by accident and I am not accustomed to committing accidents on purpose and it is only necessary to be endurable, not “good,” so that will need also to wait. I do not know for certain that I ever got covid but I am plenty sick of hearing this dumb tune for the time being!

The term is associated with Scotland in the Early Modern Era, being attested from about 1600. The term was spelled dork or dirk during the 17th century,[4]

it has nothing to do with christmas but it is what I have. Very likely you will have to click on it to go to a more legible version, so be sure to not do that.

this attitude exists but the depicted situation is imaginary, since that is the only way anyone, even a dopey purple lizard, would invite that snake anywhere, and neither would likely be permitted in most dining establishments anyway, due to covid, naturally.

thanksh, instagram. You know what doesn’t prompt a “link to a health source”? actively encouraging the purchase and pouring of designer poisons into your mouth.

Early on I considered having the lizard be lope (the annoying lizard from the longer and deceptively ongoing comic strip), but I imagined that thing would totally commit to pretending to like alcohol and not admit it didn’t if it chose to do that. Also the pathetic snake exists is a somewhat more mundane world than lope does so that its experiences are slightly more relevant to reality. Lope would not have access to “beer” and would have to settle for something with a stupider made-up name like Glapzo.
it incorporates a composite of responses from an anonymous comment thread of people claiming to not be able to stand the taste of alcohol but drinking it anyway and not explaining why they would do that and seemingly not even realizing how little sense that makes, apart from one who claims to just be after a “buzz.” I would post specific examples but I don’t feel like entering image code and being reminded of other things to complain about for the rest of the day when this is already two days late! If you can drink it at ALL that means you CAN stand the taste, so your experience is different, unless you have willfully longterm suppressed your ability to taste it, which also means your experience is different since that is ridiculous to do unless you work in espionage or something like that and if you did you would have the discipline to resist leaking out bits of information related to it.

Some people live their whole lives like that, doing totally optional stuff they hate, acting like they don’t have a choice, and forced laughing while explaining it. I can’t stand that. Such as anyone who complains about having to watch idiotic commercialized “educational” television with their small children. YOU had the power to not expose your children to garbage. “oh i’m so out of shape since I haven’t been able to get to The Gym ha ha.” You can exercise anywhere! You don’t need to pay a membership fee to go to some dreadful over air-conditioned gender role-enforcing dump and be seen in embarrassing poses and clothing.
And I don’t want to hear about the long lines at disney world. Oh excuse me, at “Disney.” There are other less-attended theme parks that cost substantially less without being reasonably priced so you can still go fashionably into debt to arrange a trip and are probably closer to your home and don’t directly finance the acquisition and diluted overexposure of formerly tolerable media franchises! Ah oh or the advertisements on spotify. You can GET this music yourself and listen to it whenever you want in any order you want, and you can also listen to music that isn’t in spotify at all. I bring ear phones with me when I go shopping to save myself from having to complain about the terrible music in stores. I have no tolerance for bad food and bad music. I couldn’t pretend to like it if I wanted to, but I also couldn’t ever want to.

you are trapped on ice. self-destructing…

something on thursday, is not christmas themed. It takes me so long to do anything, it is impossible for me to expect to have them done by specific dates, unless I simply do them months before they are relevant, and then I would have to wait to post them, and then I would suddenly feel very behind having spent that time on something I couldn’t use, and so I simply would not spend that time on that!

no more googol maps for me! I finally got a real navigation system in this car. there is just something suspicious about it.

as it happens i was taking these things out of a storage unit, but why did the dumb dope have to be RIGHT there? it almost looks like I staged it that way, as if i noticed the painting was in my shot of the globe and then i turned it around so the dope would be there, which is ridiculous. And then later when i was unloading the car’s contents and returning from placing one set of things into the garage, there is THIS:

dope AND nemitz. i shouldn’t have to put up with that. why was I “storing” this anyplace but a dumpster? And why is it inside my house now?

free ‘sketch’ so to speak 2-76 in which the character of lyraderg refuses the services of a dope. how does this dumb clothes-wearing anthropomorph lizard manage to keep dopes away but I cannot? most of the free “sketches” have not had dopes or nemitzes in them, but the ones that do ironically tend to be better than the ones which do not. This being the case does not mean that i approve of dopes or nemitz. I believe they may have sabotaged the entire endeavor to make themselves seem less stupid overall, even though I simultaneously REFUTE that they are smart enough to do that. They wrecked everything by accident but while intending to have accidents. I am fortunate I got them out of the car when I did.

Nobody I know has a website anymore
