Columbus Monthly Magazine Comic Strip... by FlapJoy
Columbus Monthly Magazine Comic Strip...
This is the final product that Columbus Monthly Magazine asked me to illustrate for the July issue. This is my most high profile project yet! And it was fun to do!!

The Digest...
This is an image I created for the erotic gallery show "Il Gabinetto Segreto” that opened this weekend at The Vanderelli Room in Columbus Ohio, running until August 22nd.

I hoped to depict the marketing of kinks and perversions in a commercial world thru a mocked-up cover to a fictional periodical, defining American freedoms, and also exploiting alternative lifestyles. Any trip to a modern porn store, or visit to massive clip sites on the internet, demonstrate that nothing is off the table, everything is for sale. Access is instantaneous... what affect or any conclusions made about society are in the eye and mind of the beholder.

In this case, I've created a fictional Tumblr model Lydia Idiom (loosely based on the brilliant Cam Damage). Lydia uses her fractured body as an object of beauty and sexual desire, fulfilling a niche demand and lucrative use of her singular imagery for a fringe audience, empowering and exploitative simultaneously. Miss Idiom is missing an appendage, but has replaced it with one of power and control. She wears a dark leather glove on her other arm to balance her "Venus de Milo-esque" features. She is not weak, she is not damaged by her cracked outer shell, she has weaponized it. S
he owns her beauty, looking at you with with a knowing sneer... she is the predator, you are the prey.

Red Skull Retro Sticker by FlapJoy
Red Skull Retro Sticker
I'd like to create a collection of stickers like those weird little ones Marvel put out in card packs and gum machines. This is my homage to the weirdness of Jack Kirby's wonderfully mishapen Red Skull

Independent's Day poster designs... by FlapJoy
Independent's Day poster designs...
I was asked to design a few images to represent the Columbus Comics Market tent at this years Independent's Day Festival in Columbus Ohio. The posters turned out great, and other than a little rain, the event was amazing fun.

I believe, in the future...
There will be such things as business flannel, and the "power hoodie".

I believe, in the future...
That everyone will be famous for fifteen episodes.

I believe, in the future...
We won't watch movies the way we do now. Films will come in a the form
of a skin cream that you rub on your forehead, slow-releasing the sounds,
sensations, and visuals, absorbed directly to your brain.
Popcorn will be a powder that you snort.

I believe, in the future...
Cats will grow thumbs and will be able to hold simple utensils and use small tools,
and have the dexterity to bounce a ball for annoyingly long periods of time... which you KNOW they'll do!!

I believe, in the future...
The most popular President of the United States in our history will have visible
neck tattoos, and CEO's will have many executive piercings.

I believe, in the future...
Pencil mustaches will make a comeback as a distinguished facial feature, but not for men.
