Over at $Z.99, one of the most frequently asked questions received is “Hey, $Z.99, when can I buy that Floor Damage screen print that keeps saying it’s sold out? I need it to live or I’ll die eventually someday possibly of natural causes.” The answer to that question is always the same, you CAN’T buy that print ever again, because it’s gone, guys, gone forever into the dark night of limited screen prints. That’s the whole idea! I mean, they wouldn’t be all that special if we just kept printing them over and over. We’d be denying a whole bunch of people that glorious feeling of loss and guilt and shame at not being one of the select few who got their hands on the things. Pff…
After a little delay, the Creepachu screen prints JR Goldberg and I did are just about ready to gelatinously explode into the $Z.99 store this coming week (currently down for maintenance getting all tarted up for you!), so keep an eye out for them but don’t get any in your eye or you’re just outright fucked.
It’s a two print set, with Goldberg and I each taking a stab at the kind of Pikachu you don’t want getting anywhere near you or your loved ones. The set is $60 and each print is signed by their respective jerk!
So maybe two months ago I was sitting around with J.R. Goldberg, doing the usual thing you do when passing the time with friends, probably picking lice from her hair, when we started joking around doing drawings of Pikachus that had the opposite effect of what those cute, mindless things usually have on people. This all came shortly after we were doing Google searches for “molester glasses” in the way we’ve all done, so the Pikachu drawings took on some of that grotesque, ‘keep these things away from your loved ones’ kinda vibe.
Well, as usually happens with me, I didn’t leave bad enough alone and we ended up doing a screen print set we are calling ‘CREEPACHU!’, and the results…the results are just very creepachu.
The Creepachus will be sold together in a set of two prints for all three of you out there who like this kind of thing. They were printed up with way too much love and care by the fine printing artisans at Mama’s Sauce. They’ll be available on $Z.99 this month and I’ll let you know when they’re ready for eatin’. Until then just think about how jealous your friends will be when they see these on your walls and scream with what you can maybe interpret as excitement.
Holy shit! They said the day would never come but I didn’t believe them? Remember how I kept telling you I didn’t believe them and you thought I was crazy to have hope in my heart when everyone was giving up and laughing at me? Well who’s laughing now, buddy?
Noodlecon shirts are available for everyone now, and not just the people who bought them at the San Diego Comicon! I know! It’s impossible, right? WRONG! I can prove it to you! Just throw some money at Slave Labor Graphics and they’ll fire one at you, straight through your wall and into your face.
No, this is not a dream. This is really happening.
Oh my god, I can’t even keep talking about this. I’m going to go eat a bowl of these delicious shirts because wearing them isn’t enough. This shirt has to travel THROUGH me.
Every dollar you spend on these shirts goes straight to my pants. Okay, it goes to buying pants because I’m not wearing any pants and it’s not pretty.
These INVADERCON screen prints showed up earlier, delivered to me by a shadowy figure around midnight, the way most of my stuff shows up.
I designed these for the INVADERCON hootenanny happening this weekend, and after I sign them they’ll end up in the probably sticky hands of the 200 people whose hands were SO sticky that only these industrial strength, screen-printed hand-wipes could cut through the grime.
I’m pretty happy with how the things turned out, and the thick chipboard paper stock gives them some serious heft. Mama’s Sauce printing did a damn fine job on these.
Like I said, these aren’t so much for sale as already sold, but the owners are only flesh and blood, right? You get what I’m saying!
Kind of a late addition, but this one kind of surprised me as well. Just started drawing it yesterday and it just kept going, so it looks like I’ll have a few of these on hand at Comicon this weekend along with the previous Johnny headshot.
Actually had a lot of fun doing this, this being the first time I sincerely had a go at most of these guys in many years, figuring out how I’d draw them in modern times. The doughboy’s hats are probably the most noticeable, along with Psychodoughboy’s blue eyes. The doughboys were always drawn as pretty much the same person only with different skins, and that bothered me in retrospect since one is supposed to be more manic and the other depressive. Here, Psycho’s a bit more glum and Eff’s looking appropriately chipper. As for Eff, his mouth’s way more fun to draw now.
Look for it in your grocer’s freezer…or at the SLG Booth this weekend.
