A Very Miserables Musical

The latest poster for Pixar's improv troupe, The Improvibles.
I originally had Russell Crowe belting out a shattering melody note to the tagline, "Even worse than Russell Crowe." My wiser colleagues mentioned that RC might supply a voice for Pixar some day and that the more prudent path would be leaving the note intact.

I still think it's funnier the other way.

The Imp & The Pimp, Part 4 of 10

Joffrey: "Pissing on MY banner?? I'll have their heads!"

Tyrion: "Joffrey NO!"

Joffrey: "Before you do anything rash, please consider the effect it may have on our heads."

Joffrey: "The lion does not fear the wolf!"

Tyrion: "Yes, but the wise lion knows to fear the pack of wolves."

Joffrey: "Those stupid Northerners wouldn't even know which end of the sword to point at me!"

Joffrey: "Give me thirty seconds against one of those crannogmen...!"

Joffrey: "I'll split him nose to toes..."

Joffrey: "...and paint the fields yellow..."

Joffrey: "...with his craven innards!"

Stark bannerman: "And whose innards would those be, boy?"

Joffrey: "I...uh..."

Next Week: "The Stark Knight Rises"

A Palatable Lunch

When I saw a that a child had furiously scribbled a swatch of color on my lunch menu yesterday, I felt inclined to contribute a doodle of my own to complete the scene.

I wonder which cocktail the kid ordered.

It's as if a million nerds cried out in jubilation, and were suddenly hopeful.

The Hobbit Wager

I lost a Rotten Tomatoes wager to Everett Downing when The Hobbit scored a very-unwhopping 65% RT score (needless to say, I had much higher hoped). The stakes were loser draws winner as a character from the film. Here's the spoils of war:

I'm looking forward to drawing Ev as Jimmy Olsen when I lose our inevitable Man of Steel RT wager.

SFX: Gold pieces clink down on bar

Tyrion: "I propose a toast..."

SFX: Glug, glug, glug

Tyrion: "Long live the little shit." 

SFX: doors burst open, men enter cheering and chanting

SFX, continued OS: Men cheering and chanting

SFX: Men cheering and chanting

SFX: Men cheering and chanting

SFX: Men cheering and chanting

Tyrion: "Seven hells..."

Joffrey: "Ahh! This peasant piss isn't half-bad! What say we order another round, uncle?"

 Joffrey: "Uncle?"

 Joffrey: "Ah! Our bannermen! I didn't know we had allies this far North."

Tyrion: "Joffrey, those aren't our bannermen."

 Joffrey: "How can you tell?"

Everett and I were brainstorming candidates for his 365 Supers blog yesterday, and we came up with "TriCarrotTops." I immediately wondered what would happen if a proper comet hit a prop comic, and came up with this monstrosity.

Ev went an entirely different direction with, "TriCaretTop".

Interestingly enough, Ev informed me that karat not only refers to the purity of a diamond, but also the triangular cut. How fitting for our three-horned hero!

My buddy Chris Palmer invited me to contribute to his new blog, Batman Tag You're It, a collection of Batman fanart where each artist tags the next for each consecutive submission.

Since I've been either animating and storyboarding on Monsters University for the past year, I'm in a very collegiate state of mind. Plus, with his Olympic level strength and stamina, Batman would be amazing at keg stands.

(Men grunting)

Victor: "HAH!"


Joffrey: "Barbaric!"

Tyrion: "Brilliant!"

Tyrion: "Come nephew, let us belly up to the bar!"

 Bar Fly: "So I says to Red Malik, I says..." 

 Bar Fly: "...this one ain't worth our trouble, but 'er sister on the other hand..."

 Tyrion: "Excuse me, barkeep!"

Tyrion: "I'd like two drinks, my good man."

Tyrion: "One for me..."

Tyrion: "...and one for my nephew here. It is his sixteenth nameday!"

Barkeep: "Alright then, what'll it be?"

Joffrey: "Give me a glass of Dornish summerwine."

Barkeep: "Don' 'ave any."

 Joffrey: "Arbor Gold, then."

Barkeep: "Don' 'ave that, either."

Joffrey: "Surely you carry Myrish sour red!"

Barkeep: "Nope."

Tyrion: "Perhaps you can save us all the headache and tell us what you do serve."

SFX: Clack!

Next week: Joffrey's first drink!
