What a creepy thing this looks like… Another commission for the holiday season. I’m at the point where I put these off as long as I possible can, and then bang it out in record time. Then again, I’m thankful that this silly little idea has gained so much traction, and resulted in many diaper purchases for my Bean.
Happy Thanksgiving, peeps.
Here’s all the NJs to date.
Just when I think I’m out, they pull me back in.
9×12. Minion. Despicable Me. Commission. Christmas.

The internet is all about stupid cats and stupid people taking pictures of their food. I am one of those stupid people. Here is my breakfast of champions on this fine Wednesday morning: a bigass Tupperware filled with assorted sushi.Thank you and good day.
The first portion of my Punch-Out project is completed, and you can see the finished watercolors (including the Tyson you see above) of all 11 characters from the original 1987 NES game here.
So much more to say, and even more to do until these are ready to go, but this is a good, sharable stopping point for now.
Tis the season to gift zombies.
Fa la la la la, nom nom nom BRAINS!
Spray paint collages to Canadambies.
Fa la la la la, nom nom nom BRAINS!
If my sweet jam wasn’t clear enough, this commission is for a guy’s brother-in-law up in western Canada somewhere. I’m gonna guess Saskatchewan or Saskatoon or Moose Factory or something.
GEOGRAPHY LESSON: Moose Factory is in Ontario, which is decidedly eastern Canada. But it’s fun to name drop Moose Factory. Suck it, Blow Me Down, Newfoundland.
Tis the season, I guess. If you’d like an original painting, collage, or some other artsy thing from me for you or your loved ones, hit me up at email@example.com.
Back in 2011, I came to work in Spongebob tighty whities and a $250 Dr. Doom helmet I bought at the Renaissance Faire. The costume was…ballsy. And frankly, it should have won the annual Halloween costume contest at work. But no, some lady rolled in with blue jeans and a leopard print shirt and won AN IPAD for calling herself a “cougar.” Barf. If part of your Halloween costume is blue jeans, you should be disqualified from winning anything. Jeans is never a costume. Unless you’re Joe Dirt.So, I vowed to never partake in the sham of a contest again, this poisoned, razorblade-laced apple of an event. Then each of the next two years, I watched as chud after chud won top honors with costumes ranging from so-so to mediocre, and I knew I had to get back in the game.
This year, I would be the man in the so-so to mediocre winning outfit. I built a man-sized PEZ dispenser from scrap cardboard, tape and foam I found in the trash at work. I’ve been slammed with “real work” and my own art, too, so my time to spend on fabricating a giant PEZ was limited. I really only got a working prototype done, and I wasn’t thrilled with the costume, especially since I didn’t have time to create the head. Still, it’s good enough and original enough to win SOMETHING at the annual contest. Lo and behold, my wholly average King Kong PEZ Dispenser! (If I had time to continue, I would have built a massive foam gorilla head instead of using my Superilla mask, which currently makes this look like a shrunken head PEZ dispenser. I also need to wrap the entire body in packing paper – then paint it – to hide the seams. Overall, the design works, though.)
Except there is no Halloween contest this year. Two months of designing my unfinished prototype. For nothing. There is no justice, so I must wait another year for the chance to avenge myself.
Happy Halloween, and if you’ve read this far, post a comment to let me know what your costume is this year.
It has been a successful partnership between the film and gaming industries over the years as Report Linker estimates that the casino gaming industry will be worth around $513 billion by 2015. While that huge revenue can be attributed to the cash cows of casinos that are otherwise known as slot machines, successful movies are to be thanked as well since many casino games today carry with them the commercial license of the best Hollywood films of all time.
Cryptologic, one of the oldest slot developers and owner of the world’s first ever casino entertainment site InterCasino, is one of the first few game publishers of movie-themed slot machines. With the billion-dollar success of the film industry, it’s not surprising to see Cryptologic developing more machines every year that feature Hollywood’s blockbuster hits.
Below are some of the most successful Hollywood movies with slot machine counterparts.
The Dark Knight
The captivating performance by the late Heath Ledger was what drew fans into the second installment of the Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy. Clips from the movie can be watched throughout play on the 103-inch video display above the slot’s game screens. One of the game’s bonus rounds is the Sleight of Hand Bonus where players must flip over the correct cards in order to win prizes. The biggest bonus feature in the game is called the Battle for Gotham community bonus, which gives players an opportunity to win the progressive jackpot.
There are three types of video slot machines for Indiana Jones, albeit none of them follow the franchise’s movie titles. Indiana Jones: Cross of Coronado is a five-reeled video slot machine with 25 paylines and a multi-level progressive. The Treasure of Incas machine also has the 25 payline slot across five reels with an impressive 243 ways to win. Added bonuses of these slots are its authentic movie clips and the ability of multiple players competing in four progressive jackpots. Perhaps the most exciting machine of all the Indiana Jones-themed ones is the Well of Souls. In addition to the 243 ways to win, the free spins bonus round allows you to choose an icon onscreen, which will determine your fate with a progressive jackpot or a fixed credit amount. A MegaJackpot top award is also available when all the correct symbols are on the upper payline.
The Hangover Slots is quite possibly one of the funniest slots available right now. The realistically hilarious sound effects are courtesy of Ken Jeong, who played the comical gangster boss Mr. Chow. The console is fairly easy to maneuver and players can make lower wagers on this five-reeled 40-payline slot machine. Bonus rounds include 4 progressive jackpots, one of which is called Pick a Tooth where players are expected to choose one of Stu’s five teeth to determine their prize.

Here’s an Eli Manning New York Giants NJBA I made for the New Jersey Isn’t Boring Show this past Sunday. The show itself was a bust for me, but I was so ill-prepared it’s not even funny. Adult responsibilities are killing me. KILLING ME.
The tweet I got sums it up perfectly:
