Chris Dorsey, known for his unattractive beard and wandering around town with a diseased fat little dog asking people to vote for him as Sheriff and posting Youtube videos about Masonic-UN chemtrails over Richmond, caused a ruckus in city hall tonight and was carried off screaming by the cops while threatening to sue the city for “quadrillions”. Topping it all off, local veganarchist collective hive-queen Mo Karnage took the podium and called the City Council President Charles Samuels “a dingo”.

Vaguely resembles a medieval village dispute. We just need some jugglers, squawking geese and public beheadings.


In 2008 while finishing one of my biggest and most ambitious comic book job, the most terrifying realization hit me - that I might spend my whole life working as someone who only imagined the beauty of adventure and peril, and never experienced it. Weightlifting and war were utterly necessary for me to pursue as an artist. For my inner style to have any meaning, it demanded action and toil in the physical world. It had to become a threat.

on the drive back from DC yesterday I saw some guy riding a rickety Mad Max’d-up motorized bicycle down Hwy 1 in Alexandria, wearing tight ripped up jeans, boots, a leather jacket, sunglasses and a German WW2 helmet. Not, like, a plastic motorcycle helmet, but an actual steel Fritz helmet. Due to traffic I couldn’t slow down and maneuver to get photos or shout my approval, and I lost sight of him through the cars and didn’t see him again.

Did I just encounter the ghost of GG Allin?

Who’s ready for the new “Lampl” @LampPostsRVA to open?!?! #RVA #VCU (at Triangle Park @ Crossroads)


Man, for real. The suspense is killing me.

Decided to not shave my head for a few weeks to see how much hair I had left. Was informed that I briefly resembled Hunter S. Thompson. Awesome.

This has been on my mind for years and I really need to get this off my chest or it’s just going to fester.

It’s a lot harder to separate an artist from their work knowing that artist is fundamentally against everything you ARE and has personally insulted you in the past.

I was personally…

Notice how all the people who said we shouldn’t support Doug Tennapel’s work are people who have NEVER actually worked with him in any professional capacity. There were no legitimate criticisms of his personal conduct in the workplace, product quality, or draftsmanship. No, you knew you had no real professional reasons to prevent Armikrog’s funding. It all boiled down to “He said something that offended me! He shouldn’t be allowed to work in our industry!"

Not even Doug at his most outrageous levels of WalMart-scooter Conservatism ever once attempted to hurt the careers of people who’s social/political views he disagreed with. What you took part in was moral-hysteria mob-justice at its finest.

Hmmm. Okay. Dude you’re kinda late to the party on this. I’ll grant that I shouldn’t have probably vented my personal issues publicly. I am sure he’s very professional with people he works with. I don’t want to ruin his career. I just wanted my friends to know my opinions.

However, privilege and all that jazz?  Dude supports making the world a more difficult place for people like me and my loved ones. I’m not gonna try to take the “higher moral ground” with somebody like that. He’s not a guy I would ever WANT to work with.  It’s a big enough world that I can choose who I work with and support based on ideals, and he is free to do the same.

Bleh. I am so over this topic. I vented my thoughts for cathartic purposes and the more time passes the less I care. I’m deleting the original post to avoid further misunderstandings.

We’ve all made mistakes and been dickheads in the past. I’m trying to learn to be less of one. I’ll keep this in mind next time I feel like venting about personal stuff online, because talking shit about fellow dickheads on a semi-public blog is still a pretty dickish thing to do, and I do recognize and I AM sorry for that.

*SHRUGS LOUDLY*

Fair enough that you deleted it. In any case, when I saw a coordinated effort by people to sabotage Armikrog’s funding, I made sure to pitch in double myself, because fuck that shit. That is not ever cool or acceptable. I disagree with Doug on a lot of things - I think the GOP are a bunch of sissies and broken retards, and he’d probably call me an ecofascist (actually I think he has?), and likewise I have Liberal acquaintances who’s views are completely antithetical to mine, yet I would never in a thousand years go around telling people “Don’t fund their graphic novel project, they’re anti-this and against that and threaten our position”. That is a disgusting form of cowardice and dishonor that only bourgeois gossipers can afford to guiltlessly use.

I’m not a Capitalist, but I have some vague notion that people should be able to offer their craft and trade up to the public and let it be judged by its quality, not by what the creator’s voting habits are, even if he had the audacity to make his views public separately from the product.

…deleting the original post to avoid further misunderstands”

I’m really not sure how many ways one can misunderstand when you said “I do, however, think this guy should be called out and shunned by the indie comics/games community.

Chillin like a villain at the Nachtmahr show in RVA tonight.

Du Pont Heir Robert Richards IV Spared Jail for Raping Three-Year-Old Daughter


Time to get a balaclava and crowbar. Whoever murders this guy first can hide at my place.

And if the cops kill us for it… Oh well. Valhalla awaits.

Going through more of last year’s photos.

Seriously though, the hate being directed at Matt Rhodes is fucking hysterical. The mob is enraged because Comrade Rhodes was LATE to the mandatory Two Seconds Hate rally, and his admission of error simply doesn’t have enough groveling and self-flagellation to satisfy them.

When I was a young artist I could only draw one face. It took ages for me to learn how to draw two. It took even longer for me to learn how to draw people of different ages, sexes and races.

A while ago, a young artist posted some fan art of Vivienne. They were still learning. Vivienne looked a…

Every full moon, Matt Rhodes recharges his white privilege by putting on a hooded cloak and descending a secret stairway to a subterranean temple beneath BioWare HQ, where he sacrifices female kittens on a swastika-shaped altar in front of a torchlit 12-armed statue of George Zimmerman while listening to Burzum.
