Minors of the Universe 2.5

Big Faker!


Minors of the Universe 2


Curse you, He-Boy!

Minors of the Universe 1

So the Live Action Team X / Weapon XI thing never took off like I hoped. And the movie has already been forgotten in theaters thanks to Sylar and the rest of the Enterprise 90210 crew (I kid, I loved the movie... warp speeding with a cracked windshield and everything).


I've decided to do a new series until I can think of a better audience participation project.

Let me introduce the MINORS OF THE UNIVERSE! First up... He-Boy (of course).

Bearded Baby Button UPDATE

Well, it is official... the Bearded Baby Buttons are a success. Less than a week in and half the machine is already gone. I need to start work on the next series soon. And for those of you that haven't picked up a button yet, here is a look at the FULL RUN (Cause I am a completest nut!)

The picture quality is absurdly poor, don't you agree? In order to see them in full optical clarity you have no option but to go down to the Red Hot, order a wiener and a beer and use your change to get you a BUTTON!

Bearded Baby Buttons!

I am very pleased to announce that I have entered into a art partnership with the best bar in Tacoma, Washington. The Red Hot (2914 6th Ave.) is offering buttons in a vending machine and each button is a little bit of Stowe Art. So run down to the Red Hot, get yourself a IPA and a polish sausage and sink 50 cents into their Bearded Baby Button Dispenser (located conveniently near the door). This first run is...


Half a dollar will score you one of these sweet designs

While I am waiting on audience participation my son has requested a new alien... his concept / my design. A window into the mind of a 5 year old boy.

Two Blog Experiments: The Wolverine Movie Edition

I went to see X-Men Origins: Wolverine over the weekend and I am surprised that a.) I didn't hate it despite its relentless and utter STOOPIDity and b.) apparently everyone else on "teh internets" felt the same way.

It was such a horribly bad "good" movie that it has inspired me to come up with not one but two blog audience participation experiments where I invite you to suggest things that I have to, in turn, draw.

One of the cooler things they pulled off in the movie was the Team X idea. Basically it was the elite commando unit from Predator recast using only the loosest interpretations of existing Marvel Mutants with Wolverine in the cigar chomping "Dutch" Swartzenegger role. To be honest, the execution of that idea is retardedly brilliant.

My assignment for you is to suggest a potential members of your own elite commando mutant squad and the current hollywoodish B, C, or Z list actor you think would best embody them on screen. I'll illustrate the best suggestions and knit them together into a new Team X.

And if anyone from Marvel is reading this blog (ha!)... a bad 80's action movie Mutant book starring Wolverine and Team X is such a slam dunk idea you should be developing it RIGHT NOW. If you aren't... I would be happy to write or draw it.

Yes, I know... Weapon XI was, if one forgets kung-fu Gambit and Native American albino Emma Frost, the stupidest idea in the entire movie. That being said... WE CAN BE EVEN STOOPIDER!!! I want you to give me 4 mutants you would frankenstein together to create the WORST fighting game reject Weapon XI you can think of. I am only going to draw one of these so the best suggestion will actually win a glossy print of your Weapon XI suggestion.
