Submitted MODOK: ARTLUNG

The mighty Joe "Artlung" Crawford returns for his fifth year with March MODOK Madness and writes,

Happy 2021!

Just because he’s a killer doesn’t mean he doesn’t care about being safe against the pandemic. MODOK WILL KILL YOU IN DUE TIME, WHELP!
Happy to have you back on the blog Joe, will be sure to remain socially distant so that MODOK has less competition during the pandemic. Check out more excellent artwork at http://artlung.com/ and be sure to follow @artlung on Twitter!
 
We here at the blog are wishing everyone out there a safe and productive month of MODOK appreciation. March is for Mindblasts.

Mid-Week MODOK_001

Here's a little Wednesday evening post to keep the month of MODOK marching (See what I did there?) along. Started with a value study and then hinted at some colors rather than hitting it with the fully upgraded Photoshop gun. Gotta remember to keep the paintings loose sometimes. Stay safe everyone, and keep on Mindblasting.

March is for MODOK,

Submitted MODOK: R D

From halfway around the globe, R D returns for a third year with the Madness sharing this delightful meme inspired MODOK. R D writes,

I'm pretty sure Drakeposting is not a relevant meme anymore, but I had this idea last year, just as March ended, so it had to wait until now. Oh well, I think it's still somewhat funny. 

Just to be sure: I have nothing against Inktober, it's just a joke.

Yep, regardless of what themed drawing month you participate in keep on drawing and having fun. We're very happy to have you back aboard.

Please scope out more of R D's work over at https://vanezigy.blogspot.com/.

Submitted MODOK: John Douglas

Long time contributor to the blog John Douglas returns for another year of Mindblasts during the month of March. He writes,

I hope all is well!  I can't believe it's March already--once again, even though it was obvious on the calendar, it managed to sneak up on me... M.O.D.O.K. is definitely pumped that March is finally here.  Anyhoo, here's the first of what I hope will be many submissions this year!

We thank Mr. Douglas for his continued support of the blog and look forward to his future posts here in 2021.  We'll even toss in this link to John's artblog: https://johndouglasart.blogspot.com/

Stay safe out there everyone and, enjoy the MODOK Madness.

Submitted MODOK: Peppered Chub

The mental organism known as Peppered Chub sent us this majestic MODOK submission after discovering the blog back in 2020. The artwork arrived with the following transmission.

Summary of a covert communique with A.I.M. contact “Macho Swiss”:
From all accounts M.O.D.O.K., like the rest of us over the last year, has found himself with quite a bit of extra free time on his hands. Apparently during a spell of quarantine induced “cabin fever” M.O.D.O.K. began reflecting upon his past. And while he can instantly recall every fact he has ever learned—which gave him a lot to ponder for the first few days of, what has been described by those around him as his “reflective-journey” he, found himself more and more dwelling upon insights gleaned during the dreams he experienced in his former life. [George Tarleton was always bit of a sad sack dreamer Ed.] Eventually such reflections lead him to wonder, “are dreams actual experiences?” Since he himself has not had a dream since the late 60’s [by all accounts M.O.D.O.K. does not dream. Ed.] he needed a refresher on what they were like, to experience them anew. Thusly, having procured a few brains from some “volunteers” he plumbed their unconscious depths hoping for a refreshed perspective. Unfortunately this initial thought experiment was not as easy as shifting himself out of Time-Space (a basic task that would normally require no more than 0.000113 milliseconds of computing). No, this conundrum required the assistance of even more volunteers (and then even more) and countless days of processing. As of this writing M.O.D.O.K seems to have narrowed his inquiry to a few base questions [the following is a direct transcript from a recording made by Macho Swiss on her phone during a high ranking A.I.M. staff meeting:

M.O.D.O.K. <<<Dreams are unlike anything, but seem to like something…is this a covert contradiction? Can one sustain the principle that if a dream seems to have been like something, it was something? <<<[garbled]…This would [garbled] lead one to believe the present tense version of this principle is unassailable:….If it seems to be something like something to be X, then it is like something to be X, correct? I hesitate…

<<<We may need more volunteers…

Keep on Mindblastin',

Submitted MODOK: Rick Daniel

"For the uninitiated in Hearthstone, this is an unrealistically powerful and unbalanced card that would never be made."

 Our first submission this year comes from Rick who sent this over to the inbox in the early days of 2021. The stats on this card do see pretty imbalanced, but I could imagine it popping up as a rare card in some chest. Would definitely be the cause of many one turn kills. Mindblasts really are that powerful. Many thanks to Rick for sending this one along, and looking forward to a month full of MODOK.

March is for MODOK,
P

A very MODOK Monday.

Greetings Fellow Beekeepers,

We gather once more for thirty-one magnificent days of March. Driven by a need to flex our creative muscle and pay tribute to the delightfully devious Kirby creation that is MODOK. I wish to send much love and respect to my long time blogging cohort Brendan Tobin for sharing in the festivities once again this year. It's always an inspiration.  Submissions are also a driving force that keeps this event going year after year.  So draw some MODOK, send it along with a byline and we'll post them up until the calendar hits April.

Wishing you all a month full of Mindblasts,
P

Marvel Two-In-One! And Goodbye!


Another year at March MODOK Madness is done!  A big thanks goes to all the people who submitted pieces, everyone who helped spread the word, and fans of MODOK everywhere.  It's you who makes this weird annual thing worth doing.

A huge thank you to my MMM partner, Pedro Delgado, for all the heavy lifting and ever vigilant watch on the inbox.  On top of all that, you produced so many tasty MODOKs.  You rock.

Here's an homage to the cover of Marvel Two-In-One 81, originally by Ron Wilson and Chic Stone.

See you next year!  Stay healthy and safe!

March MODOK Madness 2020...

....and exhale.

Whelp, this will be my last MODOK post here for 2020. Oddly enough, it's also the first MODOK I drew this year. Sketched in on a lunch break back in early February, and it's really amazing that this one month has felt like a year already. Strange days indeed.

Once again, I want to thank Brendan (my old battlefield brother in arms) for keeping this blog going with me for another year, when the distraction was most appreciated. He cranked out a mountain of marvelous drawings, and had them ready to go at the drop of a hat. I also wish to thank all the artists who shared their talent, time, and submissions with us. You put the mindblasts into March, year after year, and I can't thank you enough.

In closing, I'll take another deep breath here and move forward one day at a time. I hope that you all do the same, so that we can congregate again next year for more MODOK appreciation and artwork. Til then, please stay safe. Keep making things, and take care of yourselves out there.

Viva la Mindblasts,
P

Wrapping up 2020 Mindblasts

Hey all,

This is another quick little MODOK for the end of the Month. Really spectacular turnout this year amidst all the strangeness. Please take care out there and be well.

Salud,

This lovely piece comes to us from David Fish, who submits it for his talented daughter, Charlotte!  It's a showdown between MODOK and Thanos that has MODOK is saying, "Your power is to[o] weak for I MODOK" to Thanos, who is saying "Oh, cheese!"

Oh cheese, indeed!  You're in for it now, Thanos!

Thank you, David and Charlotte!

Submitted MODOK:Nick Butch


Fellow Liner, Nick Butch, at CBR's feature The Line It Is Drawn sends in this great piece.  If you know Butch's work, you know he has an affinity for, if not obsession with, Quantum Leap.  Here's his Sam Beckett piece, whose acronym is Modified Organism Designed Only for Killing, But Electing to Caancel Killing and Electing to Change Things for the Better!  I love it!

Thanks, Nick!

Another one from RD:
All right, here's one more for this year:

Another MODOK mash-up: Millie the MODOK.
And also an alternate version.

/Based on this cover of Millie the Model:

Okay, that's it for me, guys.
Thanks for the opportunity, and see you next year!
Nice!  Thanks for all your contributions this year, RD!

Submitted MODOK: John Douglas


A returning John Douglas gives us this gem, a worn-out MODOK taking a well deserved nap!  John writes:
Well, here's the last submission for March M.O.D.O.K. Madness for 2020. Alas, M.O.D.O.K. is too exhausted to Mindblast anymore for the month and needs a nap. I know the feeling!
I just wanna take a moment to thank y'all for the opportunity to play along. It almost fills that spot from a couple previous fun art Blogs I used to play on: Covered (recreating comic book covers) and Repaneled (recreating comic book panels).


I look forward to next year--and may have to do something to **REALLY** up my game!
And here's the usual link to my nonsense and shenanigans:

Thanks so much for all your contributions, John!

Submitted MODOK: Filipe Homem Fonseca



We get some more work from Filipe Homem Fonseca this year and he writes:

Hello there.  Hope everybody’s ok and in good health!  I couldn’t let this March Madness end without sending you guys these two M.O.D.O.K.s, one promoting the necessary social distance in this dire moment in our lifes, and another just for the cuteness of it.  Thank you for celebrating MODOK!  See you next year!  Stay strong, stay safe!  All hail MODOK!

Topical piece, Filipe!  Thanks for your submission!

Just a Mini MODOK Monday_005

Five Mondays up, five Mondays down.

So, as this crazy month draws to a close, I'm gonna take a hot minute to reflect on how nice it's been to share MODOK artwork with you all, and have this place as a creative outlet. I will endeavor to carry this momentum into my personal work for the coming months, but really feel like March has been an excellent catalyst.

On that note, let's bring this all home tomorrow with some mighty Mindblasts to be remembered.
The last day of March MODOK Madness 2020 begins in thirty minutes.

Muchos Mindblasts,
P
