Zorras Del Mal 3

It's time for a new "Zorras Del Mal" pin-up just in time for Halloween! Composition-wise, it was obviously inspired by old tales from the crypt comic covers.  I took advantage of that because I really wanted to bring back Demona, Lucybella, and Jezebeth, the three characters from the original "Zorras Del Mal," and feature them in this one.  Now, about the word "zorras", just to be clear (because I've been asked about it before), its meant to be taken in the literal English-Spanish translation sense.  In English "zorra" means "Fox", as in Jimi Hendrix's song "Foxy Lady", as in "sexy."  But, when you translate it to Spanish, it means slut or worse.  Now, I don't care what it means in Spanish.  I'm taking it back! So, there you go.  A "Zorras del Mal" horror pin-up.  Hope you like it! Happy Halloween, everybody!

"Nerdmigos: What A Lovely Tea Party" Trivia!

Here’s some “Nerdmigos: What A Lovely Tea Party” trivia for you!

Did you know?

• Most “Nerdmigos” stories are told in 1-3 panels, some 4-6. This story by Edgar Allen Joe required 11 panels! A first for a “Nerdmigos” comic.

• The opening
semen & blood spatter scene was edited for deviantART.

• I based Insaneo’s grin on The Joker from “Batman: The Animated Series.”
• The legendary Mexican actor Tun Tun inspired the character design for the midget gang leader.

• The midget lowrider seen in the flashback panel was modeled after a classic 1960’s Cadillac.
• In panel 2, the midget character in the lowrider copilot seat kinda looks like Zach Galifianakis, but that was completely unintentional :p
• Insaneo is quoting ‘Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope’ when he says the midgets “are easily startled but they’ll soon be back and in greater numbers.”
• Isma’s laser sword was modeled after Luke/Anakin Skywalker’s lightsaber and it’s appearance in this story is meant as a reference to “Nerdmigos: Lightsaber Fail,” where Isma’s collectible Darth Vader lightsaber was “accidentally” broken.
• Insaneo uses a somewhat modified Heckler & Koch MP5 submachine gun in this story.

Nortec Collective Presents: Bostich + Fussible Fan Art!

I'm very happy with how this piece turned out.  I really took my time with this one, learning new techniques, so I could give it that vintage Hermanos Almada b-movie silkscreen poster feel.  Like many other people, coming from Tijuana, I'm very proud of these guys and their work.  If somebody asked me why I made this drawing, I would say, because a) I fucking miss my hometown, and b) Nortec's music reminds me of Tijuana all the time.  So, this one goes out to Tijuana and Bostich + Fussible, who just finished an intense tour in Northeast Mexico. Cheers!

Me gustó mucho como quedó esta pieza.  La verdad sí me tomé mi tiempo, aprendiendo nuevas técnicas, para poder darle ese aspecto de cartel de serigrafía de una película de serie B de los Hermanos Almada.  Como muchas otras personas de Tijuana, yo estoy muy orgulloso de estos vatos y de su trabajo.  Si alguien me preguntara por qué hice este dibujo, yo diría, porque a) extraño a mi ciudad natal, chingado, y b) la música de Nortec siempre me recuerda a Tijuana.  Así que este dibujo está dedicado a Tijuana y a Bostich + Fussible, que acaban de terminar una gira intensiva en el noreste de México. ¡Salud!
