In celebration of “Weird Al’s” newest (and one of his best!) albums, Mandatory Fun, here’s Al himself, the Parody Polka Pugilist.
The first album I bought with my own money, that I had saved from birthdays and countless other holidays, was a cassette tape of “Weird Al’s” Running With Scissors. To this day, that is still one of my most favorite albums, with “The Sage Begins” and “Pretty Fly for a Rabbi”, I was absolutely hooked! But more than anything on that album, “Albuquerque” was my favorite song. It painted such a vivid and funny story in my mind, I remember listening to that song nearly 24/7 that first week I got it, jut to catch more and more of that tale to the magical, far away place, where the sun is always signing and the air smells like warm root beer, and the towels are oh so fluffy. Where the shriners and the lepers play their ukuleles all day long, and anyone on the street will gladly shave your back for a nickel.
Thanks for the laughs Al. I don’t think I’d who I am today without them.
In keeping with my Cartoon Network kick, I’ve drawn one of my favorite, Samurai Jack!
The simplicity in both the design and story of this show was beautiful and something to behold, and definitely played a big part in influencing my current taste in TV and comics today.
I’m also really digging jimzub's work on the current Jack comics. They feel so true to the original content, it's just a lot of fun to jump into those and feel like I'm finally getting to see where Jack's story will end!
Saw Rise of the Planet of the Apes with my good buddy Sarah (worstwizard) the other day, so I’ve had simians on the mind. So here’s MONEY, from Dexter’s Laboratory, most likely fighting for Agent Honeydew’s honor.
I’ve wanted to color this drawing I did at Heroes Con since I got back from the convention, and finally found the time! Had a lot of fun with this, and a big thanks to impkingcomics for helping me play with my coloring process!!
Hello internet. This weekend, I will be tabling with the amazing impkingcomics at Heroes Con in Charlotte, NC. If you’re going to be there, stop by and say hey! We’ll be at table AA 1025 in Artists Alley, and I’ll be doing commissions (such as those seen above)! Whoo.
