A Gabumon to complement the previous post. Looking back on it, this guy’s design was kind of a mess, wasn’t it?
Here are some fun food ideas for a Breaking Bad Finale party:
- Hicenberg: A big pile of iceberg lettuce served in one of those hats that breaking bad wears
- Jesse Pizzaman: a pizza in the shape of Aaron Paul’s face
- Hank’s Meatball Sub: a meatball sub like the kind the character Hank is constantly eating on the show. For added chuckles, repeat Hank’s catchphrase: “Don’t touch-a my meatball sub!”
- Walt Jr’s Special Breakfast: a pizza in the shape of RJ Mitte’s face
- Los Pollos Hermanos: two rotisserie chickens, served hot
- Marie’s Meatball Sub: a delightful callback to the episode where Marie ate Hank’s meatball sub and he tried to figure out who did it. It was Marie.
- Oreos: These aren’t Breaking Bad-specific but everybody loves Oreos.
I’ve put up a new name-your-price digital sketchbook for sale on Gumroad. It’s got a lot of stuff in it, as you can see above. A lot of color this time, too, as I played around with Manga Studio’s color features a lot. There are wizards and dogs and Davises and lots of other things in this book. Please check it out!
In case you missed it, here’s the latest episode of After Hours. It was written by me. I freaking loved Nedroid’s Mario-esque Gaston animation.
Writing this episode also reminded me how much I love these old Disney movies. Even watching the episode, seeing all of the clips of Lion King and Beauty and the Beast make me want to pee all over the place with joy.
Embarrassing True Story: In sixth grade, I sang “Be Our Guest” as a solo in the school concert. I got the part because literally no one else auditioned, because singing Disney songs in a shitty French accent isn’t cool in middle school, and I didn’t learn what shame or embarrassment were until I was 22 years old.
I wish I could take credit for that animation but it’s not mine!
Since a few people have asked, here are the rules for the game called “Broken Picture Telephone,” also known as “Eat Poop, You Cat,” also known as “Draw-o Word-o,” also known in the U.K. as “Crumbs and Whistles,” also known as “Call of Duty 5.”
- You need a relatively big group to play; too few and it won’t go on long enough to get silly. I’d say anywhere between 6 and 12 players is a good number.
- Every player should have a stack of papers (index cards are great, but anything you can draw on works). They should have as many pieces as there are players.
- You begin by drawing a picture on the top sheet of paper. You can also start with sentences if you prefer. You can also decide to follow a group theme if you desire.
- Pass the stack of papers to the next player. Did I mention you should be sitting in a circle? I didn’t, did I. Sorry about that.
- Look at the drawing you received, move that paper to the bottom of the stack, and on the next piece write a description of the drawing you received. You can be as descriptive as you like. Even if you don’t understand part of the drawing, try to describe what it looks like to you.
- Pass the stacks again. Now you should be looking at a sentence. Put that paper on the bottom and draw a picture of that sentence.
- Keep passing and alternating drawing/writing in this manner until each stack reaches its original player. Share the results with the group! Laugh and enjoy life. You’re doing it! You’re living the dream.
EDIT: David Malki adds: “It’s not 100% necessary, but I would add to Anthony’s rules that it works well to have an odd number of people, so that you both start with a drawing and end with a drawing!”
ANOTHER EDIT: If you do indeed have an odd number of players, then you can keep passing after it’s returned to you. If you started with a sentence then you’ll be doing a drawing for it, and you may not even recognize it by the time it comes back to you.
There are a lot of variations to this game, and it’s so simple that if you have a good group, you can play however you want and it’s still fun.
Two other rounds of Broken Picture Telephone from SPX. Here are full-size versions for legibility: Worf Mermaid and Tacodog. And here are a few rounds others have scanned in: Taco Mouse, Bird Election, Farmer Rabbit, and Radical Cat.
This is a really fun game if you have a good group of people and I recommend giving it a shot. I would suggest getting a big stack of index cards to draw on to keep things more easily organized, though.
We played a few rounds of Broken Picture Telephone (a.k.a. “Eat Poop, You Cat”) at SPX this past weekend. Here is one round that I brought home. I added some text to a couple that may be hard to read at this size.
Featuring the work of Flynn Nichols, myself, Josh Frees, Andrew Duff, Claire Belton, Jessi Zabarsky, J. Smith, Madeleine Flores, Erika Lavin, Morgan Shandro, David Malki, Jess Fink, and Sara McHenry.
This weekend, TopatoCo is coming to the Small Press Expo in Bethesda, MD! Every day this week, we’re previewing some things you’ll be able to see and buy from our talented and good-looking artists.
This year SPX just happens to coincide with the one weekend every seven years when Anthony…
I’ve got like 35 of these and after that there will be NO MORE because I accidentally ruined the block after printing
I intend to draw a series of some webcomics folk all thugged out and shit, but might restart now to try a slightly different style.
Anyways this is Anthony Clark, muhfucka behind Nedroid y’heard
Don’t front on him or he’ll blast bits of your front on him
It’s like if my outside matched my inside
This weekend I will once again be at the beautiful Small Press Expo in Bethesda, Maryland. You can find me somewhere among tables W23-30 with TopatoCo. Please keep in mind that the areas marked in red above will be filled with South American Poison Powder, and that only my books will be coated with antidote. Fun will be had by all!
TWO WEEKS left to contribute to the Food Zine indiegogo! Pre-order by next Friday to reserve your copy for SPX!
We’re halfway through the campaign and almost halfway to the goal. I’d like to thank everyone who has contributed and spread the word! You are all wonderful!
There is still some time to pre-order a copy of Food Zine. I have a one-page comic in there alongside dozens of other great artists. I saw a quick sneak preview of the zine and it is beefy (food joke). Give it a look!
