"When I say 'engineering', I have unreasonable expectations.  It must - as you know - look good in PADS AND give you plenty of help ducking and weaving in meetings.  But it must also, at some distant point in time, function.  If it does not, then you must accept that you are not in fact an engineer but instead an MBA.  Hang your head in SHAME, sinner!"

Great art as always, Bobby. Just watched the documentary. I think I'mma make a toynbee tile in pixel art now.  :lulz:
There is no reason to,
Be ashamed of poetry. It,
Is natural. But you should,
Still do it in private,
And wash your hands afterward.

OMNIBUS 777

Right on, AQ! It's kind of a contagious thing, ain't it?  "You must make and glue tiles! You!"

So I'm trying something new in terms of comix distribution...



https://www.weirdoverse.com/OMNIBUS_777/

The idea of OMNIBUS 777 is a metacomic that contains all my other comix, a directory of hyperlinks that makes the entire Weirdoverse canon accessible at the press of a button.  :fnord: :fnord: :fnord:

It is indeed! Here's one iteration of a tile I have done, still need to move some things around a bit and pretty it up in a pixel art app. If I can help it, this baby's getting immortalized on an r/place clone site soon  :lulz:

Life in the Underground Press

Our intrepid group of plucky young punk rock artists arrived at the 2005 Philly Zine Fest with a wide assortment of indie comix & art, ready to introduce ourselves to a wider world, that we optimistically assumed would welcome us with open arms and wallets. I mean, why wouldn't they?

We'd worked so hard, published so many comix, and were so gd excited, that the idea of failure had never really crossed our minds. I mean, why would it?

But after about 2 hours of complete invisibility to the passing crowd of festival attendees a desperate idea occurred to me. Give the comix out for free. It was clear we weren't going to make any money from this event, and as poverty stricken as I was at the time, the point of the comix weren't to make money anyway, it was to communicate. So I called out the audible, maybe much to the chagrin of some of my more business savvy collaborators, all of the comix on the table were now free.

And the momentum of the day swung rapidly in our favor! Our once desolate corner was now mobbed with people, we were in the mix! We were meeting the world and the world was meeting us and it was joyous and awesome.

At the end of the day we had put several hundred comix into circulation. It felt great. It felt like we'd taken a loss and turned it into a win. It felt like this was the thing that was going to lead to the next thing, and we'd look back on this day as a pivotal turning point.

As we left the venue, feeling entirely elated, I beheld a wild spectacle! The courtyard of the venue, in lovely West Philadelphia, covered in our discarded comix, blowing in the wind. Overflowing trashcans stuffed with our comix, spilling out into an indifferent universe. Our comix were literal garbage. In light of such dramatic evidence it would have been tough to deny that I'd made a tactical blunder, but I did it anyway, and with a tightly balled fist raised to sky, defiantly declared,
"THEN WE'LL CHOKE THEIR RIVERS WITH OUR DEAD!"
