Unpleasant Twisted Cynic's-ville


Look who/what jumped the gun…

The “Space Dykes…” piece got such a swell reception on my facebook account that I decided to go ahead and make it into a T-Shirt. They’ll be going for $15 a pop at some local skateshops here in Panama; hope it does as well on the physical market as it did in loserville-I mean facebook.
Here are a coupla’ pics of it. Oh, and just in case… to anyone interested, I accept paypal and I’m willing to ship internationally (contact me here jfrochaux@gmail.com).

Ok,
J.

Smokin’ Hot Space Dykes from Planet Twat

I can already smell the burning torches and the rallied mobs. That’s the title of the post and I suppose I’ll be sticking with it. I know its pretty offensive, so I’m gonna ask you to cut me a little slack. Female friends of mine and feminists I’m looking in your direction. C’mon, its not like I’m drawing Nazis or nothing-oh, wait… scratch that.

These two lovely ladies are part of a character design project I’ve decided to take on for an upcoming comic strip. Un PC and misogynistic as it undoubtedly is, I’m pretty sure that’s also going to be the title of said strip, “Smokin’ Hot Space Dykes from Planet Twat”. Entertainingly presented in all its amateurishly drawn flare, I can promise you that it’ll be funny in an offbeat and tasteless sort of way.

The story line is as campy and Ed Wood-a-fied as humanly possible; two smokin’ straight girls (at least I think they’re smokin’) are lost in space, forced to depend exclusively on each other. Because of the circumstantial co-depencecy they’ve developed a slightly homosexual relationship over time. I’d say that this premise is absolute Pulp gold, Fredric Brown eat your heart out. I plan on making this strip more dialogue oriented than anything, but I won’t skimp on the occasional zapping of aliens and other ne’er do wells. Oh, and don’t think they’re dressed to the nines in dominatrix gear for nothing, no sir, that stuff all has its purpose. You’ll find out soon enough.

Switchin’ it up with da mixed media; Cowboys n’ Zombies

This one’s a little different, I rarely venture into the realms of “mixed media” but what the heck.
An obvious wink and nod (is that possible, an “obvious wink and nod”) to the infallible as well as impeccable Garry Larson format, here I leave you with “Every Sherif Gets Eated(sic) by a Hungry Zombie.”
A colleague of mine asked why I forgot to give the Zombie a shadow; well, I didn’t forget, it was very much intentional. Why? You ask. Seeing as how the Zombie looks somewhat vampire-esque, I’d say this is probably the re-animated carcass of some kind of vampire, hence the absence of a shadow. But what’s a vampire/zombie doing out in the old west? Well, maybe you should ask yourself why you’re trying so hard to find sense in an illustration of a Cowboy that is about to meet his maker through the aid of Zombie brain munching.

Zombies, brain eating, and some rock and/or roll.

In hopes of thwarting any negative commentary that may be headed my way due to my inability to update this here blog, I shall post a new piece. Its a concert poster I did for Factor VIII, a band in which I hold the position of drummer.

The Other Side of Leatherface

Here’s another horror themed illustration, this one was conjured after a viewing of one of my favorite films… you guessed it, “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.” I can’t get over how gracefully said film has aged over the years. (Click on the image for larger size)

Illustration: Chopped Karloff

Here’s a recent illustration I made of the grand-papes of all Movie Monsters, Frankenstein. This piece was influenced by Boris Karloff’s portrayal of said ghoul. (Click on the image for lager size).

Been away, been busy, done some thinkin’; came back to revamp.

Haven’t updated this portal to my deepest of thoughts in quite a while, mostly because I’ve been caught up with other things. The reason for this re-visitation is simple, I’m going re-launch The ‘Ville. That’s right, the cobwebs and grout-ridden crevices have been cleaned, and its time for a little change, and this time for the better.  This time we’re (I’m) changing our (my) format and maximizing this our product (my blog).

I’ve decided to point the content of this blog a little more towards my graphic design work and illustrations, but don’t despair (this goes to my legion of readers, all .0001 of them), I won’t be cutting down on the self-gratifying diatribes about the world as I know it. I mean this IS a blog, is it not? Remember that here at The ‘Ville “We serve our questionable and self-serving (no pun intended) content as hot as the fryer will allow it!”

So with that said, cyberspace has been warned! Another blog centered around self absorbed commentary is about to become more business oriented…just that without the yuppie attitudes and drudgery that tends to be associated with the doings of serious business.  And those who know me are very well aware that I am in the cuttingest of edges when it comes to the workings of modern business.

So ladies and germs, I’m glad to re-welcome you The ‘Ville; a place where you can check out some cool design, and if you’re so inclined, you can hire me so I can do some cool design for you.

So welcome to your little slice of cyber-heaven in cyberspace.

The ‘Ville: no hellish load-times (if you’ve a fast connection.)
