This cartoon of mine (gag by Columbine Phoenix [sunspotdesigns.com/]) was published (in black and white) in this month's Funny Times.

Drowned Town Press now has an online store at itch.io. It includes not only all the current DTP publication list (except the Ling Master books, which are soon to come), but a number of comics that have gone out of print. See drownedtownpress.itch.io/ for the full library of PDFs. .io

Camberville peeps! This Thursday’s Cambridge Chronicle contains a recently-drawn, COVID-related editorial cartoon I illustrated, with gag by Roslindale-based Kenneth Hjulstrom.

The Chronicle is a broadhseet-sized weekly newspaper available for free at a number of outlets all over Cambridge, including supermarkets, drugstores, and convenience stores. A few sandwich shops as well, under normal circumstances, although they might only be open for takeout/delivery.

I neglected to post the link to this interview a few weeks back. My colleague from NYC, Michele Witchipoo, was visiting me during MICE 2019 last October. So now I'm on the same recording with power hitters Diane Noomin and Jaime Hernandez. podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/

The last works that Wayne and I produced together – his scripts, my art. All three of these are framed and ready to hang. Get in touch with me at art@ejbarnes.com if you want any of them; 50% the proceeds will go to Wayne’s estate (which, with the funerary expenses out of the way, is most likely to be one of several charities including a family homeless shelter in Williamsport, PA).

This 1992 comic was written by the late Wayne R. Smith, penciled by me, and inked (after rearranging the panels) by Myke Maldonado, another member of our APA. Myke has the originals; these are photos of copies.

Though DuoShade was popular with illustrators in the early ‘90s, it died out before Zip-a-Tone did, because it ages faster. As I recall, I LOVED penciling that filthy bathroom.

Content warning: Toilet use, head injury, groin injury, inconvenient truths.

Email me at art@ejbarnes.com if you'd like it. Once I know you're interested, donate to the fund and I'll mail it off to you.

Another collaboration between me and the late Wayne R. Smith, an unpublished one-pager. CW: Explicit robot sex, malfunctioning mechanical genitalia. Larger than the other pages I've posted, but as it's only ink and gouache with no Zip-a-Tone, I'm offering it for less than "Little Hitler" or "Bunnyman", but more than "More Heat Than Light." Donate $90 to Wayne's fund and it's yours postpaid. gofundme.com/f/wayne-r-smith-f

Another story on which I collaborated with the late writer Wayne R. Smith, who died in Williamsport, PA, 3/17/20. "More Heat Than Light" (1991) was published in 1992 in Issue #3 of Gauntlet: Exploring the Limits of Free Expression. CW: Gun violence, head injury, racism, sexism, arson, ad hominem/feminam language, and the late Sen. Jesse Helms being forcibly sodomized with a protest sign. Donate $75 and one of these originals can be yours. gofundme.com/f/wayne-r-smith-f R. Smith

With all the hand-washing I've been doing over the last several weeks, I had excellent reference for re-drawing a panel from the Ling Master story "The Blue Catfish" for the upcoming "Ling Cycle" collecting Ling Master stories old and new. The new version is much more graphic and gross.

Ah, the joys and perils of frisket (masking fluid). The clients are a family who want their faces in a famous painting that has a black background. I masked the boundaries of the figures before laying down the background wash, which required two washes. Peeling up the frisket afterward not only lifted the pencils, but in some spots messed with the paper texture. Hope it won't ruin the piece.

I got a last-minute panel space in this weekend's Arisia (Science Fiction Convention)'s Art Show!

Real social structures have some cost to discoverability, with increasing layers of cost/friction for each additional attempt to uncover more information. This friction is beneficial—it dramatically cuts down on casual busybodies, griefers, and nosepokery.

But online spaces are built by techno-utopians who think there's no such thing as too much of a good thing and continually push their platforms to uncanny levels of compulsory discoverability. All the negative consequences be damned.
