Trailer of Madness

Hell-o internauters,

Frequent Youtube surfers who cannot go a day without their opiated dose of Mind’s Basement videos will notice we have a new trailer up on the channel’s main page.

It’s grand and rad and stars a soundtrack from my personal, good buddy Meat Loaf. That’s right, we hang out. We do karaoke and stuff. Nobody can disprove this sweet truth!

Anyway, here it is, check it out and share it to the trees:

Strange Men Shouting Strange Words

Short comic done for “La Boîte à BD – Le Comic Book vol.1″, circa 2012. Kind of a nonsensical epilogue to the Nameless Cartoonist Saga.

If you want to follow his absurd life from the beginning, read “The Mind’s Basement vol.1″ (29 pages), then go to the comics section and read this (4 pages), that (1 page), and that too (5 pages).

Well now wasn’t that a happy ending?


“For a Safer Canada” painting

Voici une photo de la peinture finale “For a Safer Canada” (pour un Canada plus sécuritaire), introduite dans le vidéo “Il Faut Peindre Stephen Harper”

This propaganda art is to help restore Stephen Harper’s popularity in a divided Canada before the 2015 elections. It illustrates a broad picture of his important achievements and goal as a prime minister. Such as controlling the people’s safety, and the constant praising of our important and powerful military force.

Cet art de propagande sert à rehausser l’image politique de notre bien-aimé premier ministre dans sa prochaine campagne électorale en 2015. Elle illustre les enjeux importants qui lui tiennent à coeur, tel que la sécurité de son peuple et la glorification de notre puissance militaire cruciale à notre survie.
