I just got another plug on the fun and widely read Metafilter blog (thanks Metafilter!) for my Monkey Cartoon posts. Since this seems to be driving a lot of traffic my way today, I figured I’d write up a post on the various output of the STWALLSKULL Media Empire in hopes of keeping some of the traffic coming back.
First of all, I’ll just subtly mention that you can
Assuming you use a newsreader. For those of you not using newsreaders, they are awfully useful… Google has a very good free one if you’re interested.
ON THIS SITE
The biggest attraction on this site is probably the old historical comics I scan and reprint under the heading
Most of these comics have not been reprinted since they first appeared on a comics page… many of them are over 100 years old. Clicking on the above image will take you to the Crumbling Paper Index, a listing of the various stuff that has been posted so far.
I’ve also been running the ridiculously titled
for some time now, although it has been quite a while since it has been updated. Only 119 to go!
The Obscure Images category features rare and interesting comic art that I found around the web, rather than stuff I scanned.
I post a lot of historical animation that I find around the web as well, under the cleverly titled “animation” category.
Other features come and go as well, but those are the most notable ones. Recently we’ve been having Brother Theodore Wednesdays, which will continue until I can’t find any more footage of the great man.
STWALLSKULL’S COMICS READING RACK
This site was initially built as a place to house my comics and other artwork. You can see much of that stuff by rolling over where it says “comics” above and clicking around in the links. Or you can just refer to this list:
Much of it is old and embarrassing at this point, and it varies greatly in quality… but most of that stuff has already been out there for years, so what the hell.
SOAPY THE CHICKEN
In addition to the STWALLSKULL site, I maintain a sporadically updated webcomic about a dead mentally-challenged chicken with a neck of undetermined length at soapythechicken.com. You can read the entire Soapy the Chicken archive here.
That site also has a feature called Rogues’ Gallery, in which I introduce you to a variety characters you would never want to meet. You can read those here.
CUTE LI’L GUY OF THE DAY
I recently started a site called cute li’l guy of the day to amuse my daughter and myself. Unlike much of the above, it is kid friendly, so please pass it on to the kids in your life if you think they would like this sort of thing. Note that if you have a blog or social networking site and are looking for some free content to add to it, you can easily add the cute li’l guy of the day widget to it… go here to do so. You can subscribe to the cute li’l guy of the day here.
THE INTERNATIONAL CARTOONIST CONSPIRACY
I’m a founding member of The International Cartoonist Conspiracy, a loosely-organized, informal group of cartoonists which currently has over 20 cells operating around the world of varying degrees of activity. I maintain the website for the group, which you can see at cartoonistconspiracy.com. Any cartoonist anywhere can start a cell of the group. The site features a group blog (subscribe here), a message board, and a newsfeed of cartooning tips and tricks from around the web (subscribe here), among many other things. You can read a summary of many of the Conspiracy’s accomplishments here.
If you are in Minneapolis, the Minneapolis Cartoonist Conspiracy local is organizing it’s third fantastic Lutefisk Sushi gallery show/enormous boxed set of Minnesota mini-comics which will be happening next month… you can get more information about that here.
THE BENEVOLENT ORDER OF MONKEYS
The BOOM! is an older and more obscure conspiracy I’m involved with… I haven’t updated the site for the group in ages, unfortunately. I’ll get back to it one of these days.
If you dig STWALLSKULL, and want to help support my activities, mentioning it and linking to it on blogs, social networking sites, message boards, etc. is always greatly appreciated. I sure do enjoy comments as well!
Currently I make no money doing this stuff, but if you want to make my day with cold, hard cash you can buy something from me in one of my Cafe Press stores:
cute li’l guy of the day store
Soapy the Chicken store
Mall of America Mandrill store
Thanks much for reading!
