Happy Birthday, Jack Kirby!

From The Line It Is Drawn, Week 255:
In honor of Jack Kirby’s birthday next week, name us one of Kirby’s many comic book creations (Hulk, FF, X-Men, etc.) and our artists will use that character in a birthdaycard for Jack.
 Twitter follower, KeithAlanMorgan, suggested: MODOK. You know me, I'm a sucker for MODOK.  And Jack Kirby.  Happy birthday, Jack!

Check out the other Liner's tributes here!

So long March 2015!

Alright Folks... It's April First.
Pencils down. MODOK has left the month.

I'll begin by thanking my blogging cohort Brendan Tobin. We've been going strong for eight years now. Certainly have come a long way from sitting in that bar, drinking pints and doing MODOK drawings.

Secondly, and with the greatest humility I thank the scads of MODOK fans and faithful who shared submissions here with us this March.  Some new artists joined us for the first time along with a pack of die hard MODOK contributors to make this all happen and keep March chock full of visual goodness.

Finally, we'll bid MODOK a farewell for now.  He's off to destroy galaxies, crush heroes, and organize that AIM softball leauge he's been planning.  Perhaps he'll come back and visit us again someday, somewhere, some-march.   

Here's wishing a productive and prosperous 2015 to all.

Last Minute MODOK Deliveries!

Some additional Envelope MODOKS!
Real quick drawings and I tried to keep the photoshope painting quick.


Submitted MODOK: John Hazard

This sweet little My Little Pony mash-up comes from the talented John Hazard, a teacher at The Kubert School and freelance cartoonist.

John writes:
I had cooler ones, but this is the one I finished. I do not endorse The Ponys. It's crying because, I assume, being a MODOK is painful.
In many ways, being a MODOK is painful, both physically and emotionally.  It takes a special pony to endure.  Thanks, John!

Lunch MODOKs, Weeks Three & Four

MODOKs drawn at lunch, March 15th-March 31st!

A special thanks to Pedro Delgado for all the heavy lifting this year.  See you next March at March MODOK Madness!


Submitted MODOK: Joseph Barrile

"Like A Boss"
Joseph sent us extra MODOK this year and writes,
One MODOK will motivate you to work harder than eight bosses will. Life is good when you are MODOK and you are the boss.
This submission was Illustrated and colored in Adobe Illustrator CS6 and CC 2014.
And as with his last post we invite you to check out more work from Joseph. Just follow one of the links below, and huge thanks to him for sharing in the MODOK celebration for three years running now.

Keep Mindblasting,


Wrapping up MARCH MODOK MADNESS 2015 here!

Keep Mindblasting Everybody,

Submitted MODOK: Joseph Barrile

Joe sent us this sullen, doom saying, down tempo MODOK and writes,
Being the “head” of AIM and having to deal with the pesky nuisance of “super heroes” can get a villain down sometimes and the only recourse is to go full Emo.
EMODOK was created using Digital inks (in Fiftythree's Paper App on iPad.)
He was then Vectorized and colored in Adobe Illustrator CC 2014 on Surface Pro 3.

If you have time here be sure to check out more of Joseph's at one of the following links:
Keep Mindblasting,

Submitted MODOK: John Douglas

John sent us more MODOK to help cap off 2015 and writes,
Greetings!  :-)
With apologies to Shepard Fairey this time, here's another submission to March M.O.D.O.K. Madness 2015 -- just under the wire!  Hope y'all like it!
John calls out the battle cry of the 2015 MODOK season here in this post.  "MIND BLAST to the LAST!", everybody.
And as always,  We're ready to send John's shameless plug for his even more shameless site!

Keep Mindblasting!,

Submitted MODOK: Seggiepants

The organism known as Seggiepants was threatened and compelled by MODOK to create and share this post with us.  He writes,
Attached are some entries I made for March MODOK Madness.
I actually did a speed drawing video of me creating the picture. Which you can scope out over on youtube @www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNRurnrhwNQ.
The nicer picture is the one I did a speed drawing of. It is a redraw of MODOKs first big reveal. The cartoon-ish picture is from a short into at the beginning of the speed drawing video where MODOK forces me to draw a picture of him (see the you tube link above).
Hope you enjoy it. Thanks for running this cool blog every year, I always enjoy looking at the cool drawings. Sorry I never seem to submit my drawings until the last minute, and I hope I am not too late to join in on the fun.
Not late at all Mr. Seggiepants  and a big thans for sharing the process&finish on this MODOK masterpiece with us here.  Blog fans, should definitely take a moment to click the link above and check out his time lapse of the drawing while he makes it.  Because MODOK drawings are the best drawings.

Keep Mind blasting!

Mini Minimal MODOK!

Another supremely small MODOK drawing with a dash of photoshop thrown in.
The image wound up with a big negative space up in the left hand corner do my drawing the plum of Kirby Krackle.  So, I fudged in a lasso tool illo of what MODOK might be saying.  Possibly he want's to "off" a certain green hulking avenger.  Who knows.

Submitted MODOK: Steve Richardson

Steve sent us this adorably cute Mental Organism and writes,
A couple of guys at work have been asking me to submit to the great cause of March Modok Madness!
So I thought, what would Modok look like if he was in an ABC book.  So here is my humble attempt.  Hope you enjoy!
In my humble opinion MODOK seems like a perfect way to educate the youth.  You know "M is for MODOK" and all the other letters in the alphabet can be folks that Mini MODOK might mind blast.
Great work Mr. Steve, and many thanks for sharing in the celebration with your hug worthy MODOK submission.  Happy March!
Oops, sorry about that. I almost forgot this here link to Steve over @stuf123.deviantart.com/

Another quick MODOK scribblet on brown paper.  A dash of felt pen and some white prismacolor pencil with some photoshop colors. Voila!

Mind blast to the very last,

Submitted MODOK: Todd G.

Todd sent us this most recent MODOK offering for 2015 and writes,
Got sent home from work early today and decided to use this bonus free time doing something horribly important, another M.O.D.O.K. post!  Hope it gets a few laughs!  
Thanks so much for this!
I have definitely seen MODOK in drag here a couple times, but I don't recall if we've ever had a MODOK: Lady of the Night Edition on the blog before.  It proves that our Mighty Mental organism is super versatile subject matter.
Also, Todd just started up my first drawing blog scope it out over @https://idrawcrap.wordpress.com/
Thanks again to Todd for sharing your art with us and celebrating the MODOK Madness of 2015.

Mind Blast the Red Light,

Submitted MODOK: Benjamin T. Tolub

Benjamin sent us this MODOK tribute image and writes,
"Love your site and wish I had the artistry to draw one - but I do have some Photoshop skills! Maybe not your normal MODOK… REDBEARDOK!"
Thanks Ben, for sharing the MODOK love and, photoshop skills with us. We love art of all kinds here on the blog.  On a side note, I'll credit the blogs co-founder Brendan Tobin for the source artwork in this particular image.

Keep on Mindblasting!

Submitted MODOK: Jay Descallar

MODOK with Miraposa
Jay sent us this splendid drawing of MODOK and writes,
Word on the street is you guys like MODOK, so here's my submission!
March is indeed a very special time for MODOK, as he welcomes the coming of Spring and is greeted by its first butterfly. 
Heck, MODOK brings life to the blog every spring.  He also brings us mind blasts and loads of great art submissions.   Because March is awesome like that.
Huge thanks to Jay who send this our way. He helped support the cause, without a moment of pause.  I didn't mean to rhyme that, it sortta happened though.

Keep on Mind Blasting!,
