One of the coolest Flash animations I've ever seen, not only because of its simplicity, but because it takes me back to '88.

Good god.

For the lovers of big ladies reading this here weblog, you've got to check AnnMarie's latest photo update entitled "Buttercream". Wicked thoughts, followed by a need for "private time" may ensue. You've been warned.

God damn, she's fine.

Gigposters Changes It Up!

Clay Hayes, the super-genius behind has added a classified ads function to the website. I think this is fuckin' brilliant, really. Clay's put his blood, sweat, and many a tear in this wonderful site, so it's good to see him getting some revenue. People had been selling things left and right at gigposters, and he saw an opportunity. Way to go, mofo!

To read about the new addition, go here:

Bob Fingerman's Minimum Wage and Beg The Question

Image Hosted by
Rob's internal struggle.

Currently, I'm obsessed with picking out every detail I can find in Bob Fingerman's comic work. The guy is just really fuckin' good! And boy, can he tell a story. The tale of Sylvia and Rob (and their many associates) is so full of realistic dialogue, it's like I know all of the characters rather intimately. A fine example of this is the banter between Rob and his roommate Jack on page 40 of Minimum Wage: Book One. While describing Maddie, Sylvia's lesbian ex (pictured above at the right of Rob) to Jack, Rob relates how his mom gets vertigo while crossing fenced bridges (one of which they happen to be crossing at the time). It's one of those addendums to a conversation that we all throw in every once in a while. You're not going anywhere with it, you're not making any point, but you mention it anyway. Very human conversation and ass-kicking art. That's why Fingerman rules.

Speaking of Maddie, it seems I'm a little obsessed with her character, too. She reminds me of a girl I knew when I worked at the late, great Musiplex. She was a lesbian, and sexy "in an offbeat sort of way", just like Maddie. I think I need to get out more.

At any rate, picking up Minimum Wage: Book One shed a little light on a few things, because I only have the last three issues. I think I may pick up Beg The Question, because it takes those original issues and remixes 'em. The panels that I saw in the latest Society of Illustrators annual really whet my appetite.

Well, got some work to do. Peace.

Oh yeah, on a totally unrelated note here's a review of Pip Skid's Funny Farm at Pitchfork Media...go here.

Stylized Line Art Shit

I'm a sucker for this stuff:
Ed Fotheringham
Robin Zingone
Daisy Art Studio

What I Got My Ears On...

Currently in my Panasonic Shockwave is Rubber Factory, the latest Black Keys album. I'm telling you right now, it's WAY better than thickfreakness. The muddier than usual production had Dan's vocals all mushmouthed. Don't get me wrong, it was a good album, but it didn't have the charm of their first one. Rubber Factory is a breath of fresh air.

Wow, that's one sentence I don't think I'll be uttering again.

The Infamous Type History Poster

It's a third year assignment. Folks either love it or loathe it. I decided to start a progress thread at It's the sort of kick-in-the-pants I need.

Lucha Babes!

I think I stumbled upon this site at one point, but forgot to say anything about it...Lucha Babes is the creation of the talented Leigh Young. Man, does she know how to put the curves on lucahdoras, or what? You go, girl! Go HERE to check out the rest of her portfolio.

I don't understand much of what's being said here, but it all seems really cute!

Print Exchange: TRIBUTES

I think I neglected to mention that I got down with for their "Tributes" series. The super-awesome Bobby "BDix" Dixon is handling the printing of my Charles Schulz piece, because I haven't touched the screenprinting process since grade 9. I can't wait to see these things!

The Black Keys' Rubber Factory

I'm currently listening to a couple of MP3s from the new album, and already I consider it better than their last album. See for yourself, dog: Rubber Factory @

Off the Top of My Fuckin' Head...

  • This sentence is set in Arial. I fuckin' hate this typeface. Everybody and their mother uses it. It sucks. Here's why.
  • My desk is really cool, but I had to get away from it for a while. I've got the web in front of me all day. It's not healthy.
  • Right now, I'm in the Learning Commons, the site of many a weblog entry. I'd write more at my desk, but as far as I can tell, you don't get this cool post editor when you use Safari (most graphic designer folks are Mac users, dontchaknow?).
  • I'm addicted to Fleshbot.
  • In third year news, I'm taking the unorthodox measure of getting an out-of-province mentor. I really hope this works out.
  • I'm goin' back upstairs. There's mad shit to do.

A slight change...
