…be sure to check out “The Muppet (Art) Show” at the Rogues Gallery in Packrat Comics in Hilliard.

The show will feature work from a bunch of artists who each contributed their own interpretations of the Muppets. The best part? A bunch of my friends are in it!

Jeremy R. Scott created this gem…

Dwellephant contributed numerous pieces to the show (this being one of them)…

…as did the event’s organizer, Josh Peters.

Other artists include Joel Jackson, Alex Clare, and Timberlee Myers, among others.

The opening reception is this Saturday, December 3rd at 7:00 PM. The gallery will also be open during Packrat Comics’ regular business hours.

Learn more about the event and see more pieces here on Facebook, and here at the Rogues Gallery blog.

It’s time to play the music,

…wrote and illustrated the new children’s book “Dracula is Afraid of the Dentist.” And guess what? It’s available now!

I had a chance to see the entire book already and, let me tell you, it’s amazing. Like books? Well, you’re in luck because it’s available in soft cover! Not so much into the whole physical copy thing? You’re still in luck because it’s also available as a digital download!

Learn more about the book here or, if my word is good enough for you, pick up your own copy here.

Big congrats to Jocco,

-Shady

…including her three-year-old nephew Anthony.

The night before they left, Anthony woke up in bed crying. When asked what was bothering him, he pointed to this illustration that our good friend Jocco did of me and KB as Day of the Dead skeletons.

His mother took it down, and Anthony fell back to sleep.

I found it funny because he didn’t seem to have a problem with any of the other framed art hanging in the room, including this other Jocco illustration of notorious serial killers playing Spin the Bottle…

…or this The Little Friends of Printmaking print of an orgy…

…that includes this little guy fucking a human skull.

Skeletons are the scariest,

-Shady

…back in 2009 for this scathing post about the then-upcoming G.I. Joe movie.

A few people took issue with it because I bagged on the movie without ever having seen it. And, to date, I still haven’t.

I did, however, receive this email from my good friend Jocco yesterday:

Subject: Wow.

I couldn’t sleep last night and ended up watching “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” on Netflix at four in the morning. Have you seen this thing yet? Because, damn, the whole fucking shit-fest plot perpetrated by Cobra was just so that Zartan could replace the president.

Seriously, Zartan could have just waited in the fucking bathroom and replaced the president when he went to take a shit, thus saving Cobra billions of dollars in resources. Oh yeah, and Jonathan Pryce played the president… and he’s fucking British! Who the fuck doesn’t know you can’t be the fucking president unless you were born in this country?

And none of this is to mention the completely ridiculous and awkward flashbacks that happen every five minutes. Oh, and Snake Eyes’ mask has lips… Jesus. And not only is the Baroness an American, but she’s also Duke’s ex-girlfriend and used to be good until she got brainwashed by her brother… also known as Cobra fucking Commander.

That’s just the tip of the big, brown iceberg of doodie that is just one Wii click away for you. I can’t believe I’m going to say this, but it was actually worse than I thought it was going to be.

-Jeremy

PS: Cobra Commander’s real name is Rex.

Well, now I have to see it,

-Shady

…way back in 2005.

I had completely forgotten about it until I just came across the file on an old computer.

Basically, the piece was a year in review that was done up in a “Where’s Waldo?” type of style. But instead of Waldo, readers were searching for Natalee Holloway, the high school student who disappeared while in Aruba earlier that year.

I was in charge of coming up with all of the “events” that were to be included in the illustration; essentially, this was just a rundown of all the major news stories of 2005. I got the easy end of the deal.

My good friend Jeremy R. Scott, who illustrated “The Lava is a Floor!”, was in charge of the actual illustration which, well… is fucking insane. I think it took him about a billion hours to get it completed. And, funny thing is, I don’t even remember if it ever actually ran in “Cracked.”

We got paid, though. That’s all I give a shit about.

Anyway, I figured I’d post this long-lost freelance gig from 2005 because I honestly don’t think it exists anywhere else, and it’d be a shame for Jeremy to put that amount of time into it and never have it see the light of… the Internet.

this one with yours truly.

For me, the coolest thing about this interview is that it brings my friendship with Mark full circle. We first met back in early 2005, when I interviewed him (along with Erik and Marla) for “Tastes Like Chicken.” You can check out that interview here.

Ah… those were the days.

Anyway, I want to thank Mark, Amy, Ryan, ThirdCoast Digest and WMSE for the opportunity of having all of us take part in this round of interviews.

And just in case you missed them, be sure to check out Mark’s earlier interviews with Jeremy, Dwellephant, and Erik and Marla.

TLC isn’t dead… just different,

-Shady

…starting with Dwellephant right here.

This podcast marks the second in a series of interviews Mark is doing with artist friends of mine. He started off the series by interviewing Jeremy R. Scott of “The Lava is a Floor!” fame. You can check out that interview right here.

Mark has a few more of these lined up, so stay tuned to his blog–“Backstage with Mark Metcalf”–on ThirdCoast Digest. Who knows, someday I might even make an appearance.

What do I want to do with my life,

-Shady

But this time it wasn’t for our kids book–“The Lava is a Floor!”–but for his upcoming solo book, “P.T.A. Night.”

"P.T.A. Night"

His interview with the website ComicMonsters.com ran in two parts. First, a straightforward interview that you can read here. And second, a step-by-step “making of”–full of character sketches and story outlines–that you can read here.

Be sure to pick up a copy of “P.T.A. Night” when it comes out later this year. You can even pre-order a copy from Amazon today by clicking here.

Also, be sure to check out Jeremy’s personal website here.

Waiting for my free copy,

-Shady

Old Poop!
