INTRO: What is this STRANGE NEW PLACE?! [sticky post]

WELCOME TO BENCHILADALAND!

Cute Boy
This is going to be a sticky post at the top of my LJ, giving people some content info.

Regular features that people seem to enjoy:


  Fuckbrain Comix shows you, with my special kind of "art," the inside of my brainmeats: Tourette's Syndrome, OCD, Bipolar Disorder, and maybe one or two others. Maybe you'll learn something.

  People are happy because I eat strange foods So You Don't Have To.

  Things I Can't /Draw is exactly what it says on the tin, from Inappropriate Comix to Hero / Villain-A-Day Every-Few-Months to the aformentioned Fuckbrain Comix.

  The Continuing Adventures of Sir Reginald are here, from my original stories to loads of art and comic adaptations by awesome people.

  The Truth will emerge, about your sexuality, drugs, kinks and fetishes, crushes, the parallel universe you, and that memory you'll never lose. Anonymous commenting with no IP logging is enabled for these entries.

  Toys in the Bookstacks is me having fauxmetti fun with my 3.4 billion toys and the library where I work.

  Five Questions are what I want from you. Maybe I'll even answer them someday.

  Audience partipation is strongly encouraged.

  Photos Of My Life may also be requested.


I think other stuff happens, too.

Photos pre-April 2008 might be broken due to a Flickr fuck-up. I'm slowly fixing it.

Enjoy your stay and tell your fucking friends.

Love,

Originally published at benchiladaland. You can comment here or there.

No art for the week of Christmas. Perhaps you’ll get ALL of the remaining Wizard’s Lesson next week. I’m gonna be finishing it up during my days off.

I did you up a nice Toys in the Bookstacks. Please enjoy.

The Wizard’s Lesson: Babies change things

Originally published at benchiladaland. You can comment here or there.

A chill page this week, but perhaps a bit ominous. I think it will take about three more postings to finish this bad boy off.

On the last day, I’ll give you a huge post with everything to date.

For now, please to enjoy wedded bliss:

The Wizard’s Lesson has a pretty lady this week

Originally published at benchiladaland. You can comment here or there.

 
 
It doesn’t matter much, though, since my ability to draw pretty ladies extends about as far as I can flick a boulder. I make do with “visual cues.” *koff*

As always, click the pic to embiggen.

I’ve also included my latest Artisan Pony, which is one of my more unfortunate ones. I intentionally started drawing from the back of the neck, which led to some, whatchamacallits…birth defects. Submissions always welcome, click the pony for details.

The Wizard’s Lesson has rounded the last curve and is entering the final straightaway, to use pony terminology. I figure that by the end of the next two weeks, it will be finished. I’ll make a post with the entirety of the work as the last entry for it.

Anybody have suggestions/requests on what to draw next, beyond my “Grammar Nazis” comic and “the benchilada tarot?”

Love,

benjamin

The Wizard’s Lesson: Gender-Bender

Originally published at benchiladaland. You can comment here or there.

I have nothing of even vague importance to say today, let alone about this page.

It’s just another step into the mad world of Tzu Ch’un and Asshole the Wizard.

8 Levels of Hell for poor Tzu Ch’un

Originally published at benchiladaland. You can comment here or there.

S’up, kids?

I’m tired of waiting until the last minute to do the actual writy-bit of my entries, so I’m actually writing this the night before.

I haven’t been sticking to my Ten Minutes A Day rule with my art, justifying the many hours I spend on them anyway as being justified. This is bullshit, amirite*?

Don’t get me wrong, I’m having fun with the Artisan Pony Project and the fabulous guest artists that I’ve gotten so far, but I feel like I’ve been dropping-out of the one-page-funny comics, focusing perhaps too much on being Srs with my art. Starting again tonight, ten minutes every day.

I should also get back to a story or two that I was briefly working on. And the dishes. Nadja‘s sleeping, though, so I shouldn’t do the latter right now. Our bedroom and kitchen are only separated by a curtain.

We have been having preposterous amounts of fun lately, including the great success that was the Kung Fu and Kasseroles Party. Great friends, and casseroles and covered dishes were consumed in large quantities.

Here are trailers for the movies that ran all night:

Living Room TV:

The Magnificent Butcher  (Sammo Hung at his best), The Tai Chi Master  (A 90s Wire-Fu classic), 36th Chamber of Shaolin (Because Gordon Liu).

Laptop in Library:

Duel of the Tough twice (good fights, a film by Godfrey Ho) and The Holy Flame of the Martial World  (a truly WUT film in so many ways).

Netbook Opposite the Toilet:

The Fearless Hyena on repeat (a personal favorite, my first Chan kung fu film).

Anyroad, welcome to the SECOND most bizarre part of The Wizard’s Lesson:

Need a RECAP?
Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4

As always, click to embiggen:

See, that wasn’t so bad, was it?

Ponies and the Tarot

Originally published at benchiladaland. You can comment here or there.

Yeah, I’m a few days behind. I’ve been busy.

I’ve been having far too much fun already with my Artisan Ponies project on Tumblr. If you’ve been following my art for long, you know that animals are NOT my forte, but that somehow my horses always look…unique.

I’m starting the next Wizard’s Lesson tonight–a two page splash–and I’ll do my damnedest to have it up for Tuesday. For now, we have:

The Wizard’s Lesson Part One
Next Pages
The Next Page
The Lastest So Far

First VERY preliminary sketches for the Tarot deck I’m going to do have started. Don’t worry, I won’t be crossing any streams, and will finish The Wizard’s Lesson before continuing.

Tarot trump notes
In other news, Nadja and I are working next week on our online sales model. We should have it up soon and you can buy terribly fun things from us.

For now, peace out motherfuckers.

Love,

benjamin

Bread and Life

Originally published at benchiladaland. You can comment here or there.

I really enjoy doing my Toys in the Bookstacks, and I must admit that I loved finding the books for this one. I don’t know as though I’ve ever done one that wasn’t intended to just be funny before.

The moral is simply that I made you something.

Love,

benjamin

TAKE HIM TO THE PIT! – New Art for The Wizard’s Lesson

Originally published at benchiladaland. You can comment here or there.

 
 
“Interesting” fact: unless I’m working on a piece that’s 100% planned-out and ready, I don’t keep track of which color I use on various parts of drawings.

As such, when I have something like The Wizard’s Lesson, colors on everything change unless I can remember from the last time I drew.

For example, I know that King Yama, Lord of the Underworld, should have a face red with righteous fury, so I draw it like that…then forgot which pencil I used. Glad I don’t have to draw him again. :P

I think that the color of Tzu Ch’un’s astral self is “green bice,” but don’t quote me on that, because that would be a stupid thing to quote me about.

Why would you even do that? Quote me on a color?

I thought I knew you.

Oh, by the way, our “Fuck Civility” buttons are now up on our Etsy shop. Support Steven Salaita, kids, by expressing your own first-amendment rights:

In any event, please have some looks back and today’s art:

If last week’s part of The Wizard’s Lesson by P’u Sung Ling didn’t have enough violence or blood for you, then please accept this next helping:
