MODOK: Gone Fishin'

Well,
  Here we see the mental organism enjoying some downtime, as he bobs down the river.  No doubt he is pumping his own special brand of pollutant into the water supply, as he over fishes to his hearts content.

Yep,
  It's time to chalk up another year of March MODOK Madness for me.  It's hard to even believe it's been Seven years since I sat down in a pub with my good friend Brendan, and we decided to dedicate a month to MODOK. 

As always I like to finish off the year by sending out thanks in my last post:
  • First and foremost, thanks to Brendan (my friend and fellow Beekeeper) for making this something I look forward to every year.  Already got some ideas for 2015!
  • Second I'd like to thank (hell even APPLAUD) all the artists and fans out there who devote their time and skills in celebration of the master of MINDBLAST.   The artwork you send every year keeps the month interesting and inspiring.  I salute you all.
  • Finally, I'd like to thank MODOK.  Because he is the reason most of this even happens.
  • Also, if you've missed the deadline for this March; worry not.  We'll see about setting it up next year.
In retrospect, it's been seven great years.  Here's hoping we all see each other for an eighth.

MINDBLASTS for ALL!
Sincerely,
P

The Organism known as Gavin de Lint sent us this awesome last minute MODOK and writes,
I hope I got this in on time.  Love love love this project, wish I had time for more than just a pencil sketch.

Many thanks for the submission and support as always Mr. de Lint.

Submitted MODOK: Patrick Bodayle

Patrick sent us this spur of the moment MODOK image.  Using a fine ballpoint pin on a high end archival quality legal pad, he's crafted a fantastically malevolent MODOK.  

Many thanks to Patrick for sharing the MODOK with us in the few remaining hours of MADNESS 2014.

Keep on Mindblasting!

Submitted MODOK: John Douglas

A moody grayscale MODOK!
The mental organism known as Mr. Douglas RETURNS to our inbox with another MODOK post and writes,
Greetings!
Here's a second submission for March M.O.D.O.K. Madness 2014.  I'm hoping it can sneak in under the wire at the last minute.  It was supposed to be color, but, alas, I ran out of time.  Oh, well.  I hope y'all like it nonetheless.  :-)
John also attached a shameless link to blog, so go check it out at http://johndouglasart.blogspot.com
You'll be happy you did.
 
Keep on Mindblasting everyone.

Submitted MODOK: Joel Lobo

The mirror stand is amazing.
Joel Lobo is more then just a guy with an awesome sounding name.  He's the MODOK drawing badass who sent us this submission today.  Mr. Lobo writes,
I hope there is still time to participate in the March Modok Madness.  My image is an obvious reinterpretation of the Triple Self Portrait by Norman Rockwell. I hope you enjoy.
For this and more of Joel's art scope him out over at his website www.joellobo.com.

Thanks for the support Joel, keep on Mindblasting.

Submitted MODOK: Stewart G.

Well we should say Submitted "MODOKS" in this instance.  Because Stewart was very clever in his tactics for procuring SIX fine MODOK drawings and sending them to us.  Stewart writes,
Hi, hopefully I'm not too late to submit pictures for this year.
    Attached are some entries that my nieces and nephews and I did. I had to bribe them with Pokemon card to get them draw him with me.The girls especially didn't appreciate MODOK (he isn't a cute butterfly after all). I think they still had fun anyway.  Thanks for the fun. I hope to do it again next year.
Stewart's MODOK (above)

N. (age 13) captures MODOK's warface
A. (age 11) shared this MODOK.
El. (age 9) did this one
Em. (age 8) did this one.
I wish I could remember what name the girls were calling MODOK it was funny.
T. Age 6 and a half (He made sure I put down the and a half part) did this one.
He took the most convincing to draw with us, but the promise of Pokemon cards finally won out.

 On a side note MODOK totally endorses bribery and other forms of coercion, when it comes to making images in his name.  Because it's March, and it's time for MODOK drawing!

We'd like to thank ALL these young artists for they're time and talent this year.  Kids drawing MODOK is always an awesome addition to our inbox.

For these images and more check out Stewart's website HERE!.
And keep on MINDBLASTING!

P.S. Apologies to Stewart for the mix up in this post... Blogger told me it was totally cool last evening... and this morning it tanked..  So Here's the revised post.

Morning Cuppa MODOK.

He'll have his with cream, two sugars, and DEATH!
Coffee gives MODOK the worst kinda gas.  Which is why he's so quick to suck down those ten "Venti" ever Monday Morning so he can absolutely irradiate everyone in the office.

Well, this is the final day of MODOK everyone!
Right now I'm just waking up to what should be a rather busy day.
Hope you've all got your all doing well and that you're ready to MINDBLAST this week into bits.

Still MODOK after all these years,
P

MODOK

MODOK is a little tired here.  He's gonna charge up his Mind blaster and catch some shuteye.
He'll see you all after he gets his eight hours.  Prepare yourselves, he'll be grumpy when he wakes up.

MODOK around the Clock.

Here's another post from the desk of Wayne Q. entitled "World Domination, same as always" M.O.D.O.K. with drawings by Wayne Quackenbush (left) and Brendan Tobin (right).

MODOK is always fun to draw with friends.  Come to think of it, I remember sitting and drawing the mental organism with Brendan the night we decided to begin the blog.

Keep on Mindblasting!

Submitted MODOK: Martha Antaya

Here's a follow up image of the work by Martha Antaya.  It's a fully fired & glazed ceramic M.O.D.O.K. now and it looks super menacing.

Big thanks to Martha for including MODOK in her artwork this March, and additional thanks to Wayne Q for sending the image our way.

Keep on Mindblasting,

Final Brown paper BAG MODOK!

I actually got a fair amount of mileage from my one or two Brown paper baggie drawings this year.
Yielded maybe a dozen MODOK images or so.  I'm happy with that...I'm also a fan of being thrifty with my art supplies when I can.
Be sure to check um all out and send your art in before it's too late.  Maybe I'll even post up the drawings themselves on the Brown bag. So you can see them minus the colors...

Hope you dig, and keep on MINDBLASTING!

Submitted MODOK: Teddy Dilucia

Friend of the blog Wayne Quackenbush, is a MODOK fan.  So he is helping us finish up MMM 2014 on a high note.  He sent us a small collection of MODOK art that he'd gathered from the wilds of Rhode Island.

Here we have a Mixed Media painting about 18" X 24" by Teddy Dilucia of Providence, RI.

Big thanks to Teddy for kicking out the MODOK art and for letting Wayne pass it along to us.  We'll be sure to share the other posts here soon.

Viva la MODOK!

MOOD-OK...

Looking back at my posts from this year verses the past years I've seen an increased skew towards lots of colors and digital painting type stuff.  Playing with MOOD lighting a bunch.
I hope you've been digging it.
To add to that, here's a super grumpy bald MODOK with a cigarette knitted into his teeth and scars on his noggin.

Keep on MINDBLASTING!
