Last Gasp

If there isn't enough art and depravity for you here on this PG-13 blog, you might want to direct your attention to the Bay Area Comix Valhalla and Smut Emporium Last Gasp where I have been blogging sometimes too. I love the Turners & Last Gasp. It feels good to be surrounded by fellow kooks. Not to mention the mountains of books: mesmerizing old head comix of mysterious origins, weirdo art books, random comics debris (ancient Zippy the Pinhead postcards, Dealer McDope game pieces), coffee table books from Taschen & Chronicle, graphic novels from Fantagraphics & Koyama & D&Q & Picturebox, small press junk. I still consistently buy duplicate back issues of my all-time favorite comix anthology Weirdo with a hoarder's panic that one day they won't be available any more.

When not sweating out my book addiction, I've been making a lot of videos for them, like this one:

 for the Hi-Fructose 3 Collected box set and this one:

 for the extremely awesome Krampus Greeting Card set.

You can see all of the videos on the Last Gasp youtube page.

Sandwiches & Ammunition Claymation Video

The Bobby Joe Ebola claymation music video is finally finished. It took some months and turned my workspace (aka tiny bedroom) into a wire and glue laden crazy crafts lady nightmare. The only dates unafraid to enter my boudoir during this period were Fat Albert, PigPen, and Crazy Harry. Corbett from BJE made it all worthwhile, however, by being the most pleasant and encouraging client I ever had. Thanks, Corbett! Hope you like your video!

Jodie Made Me Do It! - New Stop Motion + A Broken Hearted Hobo

What's happening in this photo? You'll have to tune in to the new Bobby Joe Ebola "Sandwiches & Ammunition" video to find the answer. Cliffhanger! Created by me in granny's top secret sugar shack, working with an all-star claymation cast featuring Corbett & Dan, several Abe Lincolns, a cavalcade of roaches, and more. Projected release date is June 2012. Stay Tuned!

How Can You Mend A Broken Heart?

Last February, I participated in the Down At Lulu's Valentines Day show, curated by Amanda Verwey. The above piece was my contribution - a swan song to the pain and indignity of lost love, partially inspired by the Bee Gee's classic, How Can You Mend A Broken Heart? This painting is now part of the collection of Emil Sempf, notorious comics enthusiast and man about town.
