Today I continue a tradition that I began back when I first launched the blog… which is to create a unique drawing of some kind each Friday the 13th. This year I’m throwing a few things into the mix to create a monster mash-up parody. Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, and Freaky Friday somehow melt together to bring you Freaky Freddy the 13th!
Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees were always at odds with each other, but then one of Freddy’s recent kills leaves him with a cursed ancient talisman that causes Freddy and Jason to swap bodies for 24 hours! It takes Freddy and Jason a bit to find their footing in each other’s skins, but along the way they learn something important about themselves and each other. 🙂
I wasn’t sure how this was going to turn out when I began today, but I like where I ended up with it. Initially I had the guys facing each other… but I think it works better back-to-back. Also, it seemed empty until I started filling in the blood spatters. Strangely, I feel like those really help bring the whole image together even though they were very much an afterthought.
Please let me know what you think, and be careful out there today! Also, remember, if you’d like an original commission by me or would like to hire me as an Illustrator, please use the Contact page and let me know as much as you can about your request.
What do Lou Gehrig, Auguste Rodin‘s The Thinker, and Youtube have in common? Not much, until now!
I’ve had a Youtube channel that I’ve done nothing with for ages. I keep threatening to make animations or tutorials or who knows what, and then I don’t. But I’m going to try and start branching out a bit so I wanted to make sure I knew how to upload videos and link them to various other social networking sites. To that end, I needed to come up with a funny in order to have something to post… and that’s where this comes in…
I was thinking (see what I did there) about Lou Gehrig’s famous speech, and Rodin’s famous sculpture popped into my mind. A little creative editing with the actual soundtrack and I separated out the beginning from the ending so that I could leave that little bit of silence to let the joke settle in… used a little Photoshop magic to remove Lou Gehrig and replace him with the sculpture, and there you have it! It’s one of those things that technically works without the audio, but I feel like the audio really drives the joke home… so it made for a nice test subject for my new old Youtube channel.
In the future, I plan on doing some animations with voices and sounds and all that cool stuff… and perhaps some instructional/tutorial videos as well. Who knows what might pop into my weird mind. If you like anything at all I do here, please check out and subscribe to my Youtube channel and keep your eyes peeled!
In case I don’t post anything else before the end of the weekend… Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone! I’m thankful to have all of you following and encouraging my nonsense for a couple of years now, and I wanted to take a moment just to say thank you!
So, I already established that I’ve been watching Disney’s Frozen a LOT this Christmas with my nieces and nephew, which inspired me to draw Olaf recently. While watching a recent new episode of the CBS show, 2 Broke Girls, I suddenly had a warped thought… Oleg… Olaf… and then THIS happened!
A mash-up of Frozen + 2 Broke Girls that I can’t believe I couldn’t already find having been done by anyone else online. Kat Dennings’ Max Black becomes Anna, while Beth Behrs’ Caroline Channing becomes Elsa… and, strangely Oleg becomes Olaf AND I suspect both of them do enjoy the warm hugs. 🙂
I like the way this turned out, and I hope it is as funny to everyone else as it was when I thunk it up in my brain.

Profound apologies to Frosty the Snowman… but last month I had this idea for a Christmas mash-up… inspired by true events, ripped from the headlines as they say. 🙂 I wanted to get this one up before the holiday weekend and in honor of today being the day the Electoral College casts votes for the presidency.
The little things please me the most. I like how the magic twinkle effect around Donny is bringing him to life after the magical toupee is placed upon his head… and I like how disturbed that little girl truly looks. Her look in particular was referenced from the actual proper cartoon where she is cold and shivering while Frosty is seeking to save her from the cold at his own peril. I though that expression worked well here in this context. Meanwhile, Donny’s dialog is a riff on how Frosty always exclaimed, “Happy Birthday” every time he was brought to life. Donny says something far more tragic every time he comes to life. 🙂

So, last week I had an idea for something I thought would be funny. It’s a Christmas and Halloween Marvel Mash-Up, featuring Frankenstein’s Monster and Spider-Man!
Once again I was surprised to not be able to find another version of this already existing online. I can’t believe I’m the first or only one to think of this glorious pun, but I might be the first to get it online… If you want to have additional Christmas fun with this one… you can imagine him muttering “myyrrrrhhhh!” 🙂
