…It’s Things Thursday: Monster by Mail?

Monster By Mail

For just $25, cartoonist Len Peralta will draw you an original monster based on a design of your choosing and then mail you the final piece of art for you to display on the wall. Add $10 more, and he’ll even include a YouTube video of the entire process so that you can watch the creature come to life.

Summer of Super-villains

This summer Len is specifically focusing on super-villains with an event called the Summer of Super-villains, so if you give him the name of a potential super-villain, he’ll create a drawing that brings that name to life.

…The Grawlix is #@$&ing cool?

Grawlix

You know the string of symbols that come out of a cartoon character’s mouth every time they swear?

Apparently it’s called a Grawlix.

Mort Walker (the Beetle Bailey cartoonist) coined the term around 1964, and though the Oxford English Dictionary doesn’t officially recognize it as a word, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t start using it every chance you get.

#@&%?$!
