My birthday!

Can't believe I'm 44. Life continues to be weird and interesting. Every day there's more stuff to see and experience. Health, wealth, happiness, good fortune and love to all my friends, family and loved ones. So grateful to you all...

Polybius

I was finally able to obtain a working POLYBIUS cabinet arcade machine. So far a few mild nightmares with the NIGHT TERRORS Higher Function Menu setting active, but sleeping better now with HYPNOGOGIC RECALL and HYPNOPOMPIC RECALL enabled. A brilliant game by SINNESLOSCHEN and an amazing job done by VINTAGE ARCADE SUPERSTORE in Glendale, California for making this a reality.

Anthrostero Tattoo Upgrade

Got my tattoo highlighted and cleaned up yesterday by Mark Mahoney of Shamrock Social Club. He's the same tattoo artist who did the original tattoo way back in 1992.

MASCOT MANDALA


My first major art piece of 2015 contains bouncy houses, sports mascots, and character trademarks from foods from Mexico, Japan, India and other countries. The 3D lenticular will be on display at La Luz De Jesus Gallery in March. To see a representation of what this image would look like in 3D, CLICK HERE.

Below you'll find my original drawings of all of the elements within this image:

The New Sanctum Sanctorum West

I recently relocated and just finished putting up my new Sanctum Sanctorum for my Dr. Strange collection. It holds almost every comic book and graphic novel appearance of Marvel's Dr. Strange. Also included are original works of art by Gene Colan, Frank Brunner and Alex Ross, among others, as well as DVDs, video games and toys:












A lenticular piece I made based on Marie Severin's art from Strange Tales #158. It's in a lightbox right outside the room which houses The Sanctum:

 
 This closet adjacent to The Sanctum houses all my Dr. Strange t-shirts and my collection of first printing hardcovers of Neil Gaiman's Sandman:



My large display cabinet couldn't fit into the doorway of the room where The Sanctum is housed, so it resides in my living room:

SAM CDS 2

Happy New Year everyone!

Way back in May of last year I posted some of the covers and track listings for compilation CDs I've been making my fiancee Dr. Sam Abraham every month. Since then I've made quite a few more, so I thought I'd share. As I said before: Most of the music listed below is available online at the usual places, but Amazon Instant Download and the original artist's sites are the best ways to get them. Support music by buying some of these songs if you like em!

The first compilation featured here has a cover that parodies a story in The Onion:



Here's a few more I made during 2014:






The Ska collection below I honestly believe is the best Ska compilation ever made. I challenge anyone to make a Ska CD better:



The latest compilations feature band theme songs. The songs have to have the bands' name in the title of the track or they have to say the name of the band in the chorus...



Watch for future updates in the months to come!
