Thrilling Tales – The Space Patrol’s Camp in Iceland

Filed under Thrilling Tales of the Downright Unusual, Works in Progress

The Space Patrol's camp in Iceland

On the slopes of the volcano Fremrinamur in a remote and ashy part of Iceland where only mad scientists thumb through the real estate section of the local paper, the Space Patrol has established its camp around the well defended tower of mad Doctor Rognvald. Here we’re very near the beginning of Part Two of The Toaster With TWO BRAINS… although in a total refusal to conform I’m actually about a quarter of the way done with that story’s illustrations.

You can click the picture above to initiate an explosive form of embiggification which, although terrifying, is Entirely Safe When Used as Directed.

This is the second illustration in the story. I still haven’t managed the first one: I guess I can’t take the pressure. But anyhow I’m nearing the end of this weeks-long excursion into TWO BRAINS so soon I’ll reset my own brain, and get back to The Lair of the Clockwork Book.

Come to think of it, during those last anxious weeks of the Clockwork Book I never realized that I’d passed the halfway mark. Over half those illustrations are done now… when I include a bunch that you haven’t seen yet, but I have.

There is a web project that I really need to make some progress on, and I’ve been asked to do an illustration for something else, too. So once I’ve finished two more of the TWO BRAINS pictures I’ll probably try to race through those two things before the big reset.

 
 
‘The Mercury Men’ web series debuts at Syfy.com

The Mercury Men serial at Syfy

Today’s the debut of The Mercury Men, that long-awaited retro science fiction web serial that’s found its home at syfy (sic).

Synopsis: Edward Borman becomes trapped when deadly creatures from the planet Mercury overrun his office building, killing anyone in their path.

That happened to me once, too, except that they turned out to be FBI agents.

It looks like the next episode is slated for tomorrow; so, viewers, don’t change that channel!

“Mjollnir” video shows (probably) hundreds of Thor’s Hammers, including mine

Filed under Found on the Web

Here’s a compilation video from Manuel Velasco featuring more (uncredited) depictions of Thor’s Hammer, in just about every possible medium, than you can shake a goat-drawn chariot at. My version shows up at 7:10, followed by someone’s rather crude copy of it. At 4:41 you can also see some brave fellow’s back where my Mjolnir has become a very large tattoo.

At least Velasco’s blog post links back to me; but feel for all those artists and craftspeople whose work is there to be enjoyed, but not known.
