Mid-Week MODANK!

So ends another year of March MODOK Madness.

Once more, I am happy that we all had this month to share artwork and bask in the radiant glow of a mighty Mindblast. It's been a particularly long twelve months since we last did this event. But, once again it's proven itself to be a pleasure and much needed escape. So, I wanted make a few quick shout outs before I roll off into the sunset here. Bountiful thanks to my blogging buddy Brendan Tobin, for being an inspiration and for sharing this event with me year after year. I'll also need to send a metric tonnage of thanks and gratitude to all the folks that contributed and submitted artwork this year. You make this blog fun and new ever year. In closing, I wish you all the best for 2021, take care of yourselves out there and keep making artwork. I look forward to seeing you in the future.

March is for MODOK!

So Long MODOK...


Here's the wrap-up to March MODOK Madness 2021!

A big thank you to my partner in crime, Pedro Delgado, who again did a lot of the heavy lifting with the submissions!  You are the man!

Another thank you to all of you who continue to support us over the years.  Keep sending us your artwork and we will keep posting it!  Tell your friends!

Until next year...

Yo Hablo LingoDOK!

Hola!

Winding down to the final hours of March 2021 and I've almost exhausted my ideas for the year. Part of the pandemic (and pre-pandemic) times has been spent trying to build my Spanish skills using Duolingo. 

So, I figured MODOK would fit right into a Duolingo styled language lesson. Unfortunately, I did need some help from google translate with my syntax so if this isn't perfect, please forgive me. I'll keep working at it. Text roughly translates as follows:

Submitted MODOK: R.D.


R.D. strikes again, with this fantastically cinematic MODOK submission to close out his month of Mindblast. He types,

Okay, this was a big one. I wanted to do a MODOK-piece in honor of the new Godzilla VS King Kong movie, but although I had the basic idea pretty early on, I only rushed through it these last few days, ignored some details and scrapped my original plan of including the full '70s roster of the Avengers, just to make sure I don't miss the deadline (maybe there'll be an 'advanced version' on my blog in the next few days). So here's MODOK in his giant robot-body on top of the Empire State Building, fighting Iron Man.

And that's it for me, guys. Thank you for the opportunity and see you next year.
Until then, keep safe everyone!

Thanks again for the contributions and support R.D. We're always happy to have you along for the annual tribute to our favorite mental organism. If you want to scope out that advanced version for yourself just pop over to https://vanezigy.blogspot.com/ periodically for the next few days, and enjoy the artwork.

Mindblast to the very last!

Submitted MODOK: R.R. & R.D.


We received this unconventional MODOK submission from the anonymous R.R. & R.D. on our last day of the month with the byline.

Our Mother broke her leg. She got her light cast today. We decided to make a M.O.D.O.K. on it.
 

We here at the blog wish your mother a speedy recovery, and congratulate her for sporting some magnificent MODOK artwork on that cast.

Mindblast to the last!

Submitted MODOK: John Douglas


John Douglas is a man of his word, a few days back he'd mentioned having a final MODOK in the works this year. It's his sixth submission of the year, and it's absolutely stunning. John writes,

Hey Pedro and Brandon,  

Well, looks like I got my last submission done just under the wire!  This time, it's a Paper Doll set starring the ol' Head Cheese, himself.  Although, now that I look at it, his head(s) may be a little too... "Normal".  Oh, well, by the time you cut out the pieces and glue on any accessories, you'll barely be able to tell!

John has some high res versions of this wonderful paper doll set over at https://johndouglasart.blogspot.com/. We warmly invite you to visit his blog, print these out, grab some scissors, and a glue stick to have a little MODOK crafting session wherever you are. Happy March MODOK Madness 2021 to you all and many thanks to Mr. Douglas for another year of amazing artwork.

March is for Mindblasts!

Steadfast Sebs is a long time fan and contributor to the blog. So, it was only a matter of time before he sent some artistic gold to the ol' inbox so we might post it up for all to see and enjoy. He writes,

Hey!

Man time moves so strangely in quarantine, I cannot believe that March is already over.  Hope you are doing well.  I had a couple modok I was able to finish out from my pile of doodles.  If time is kind to me today I have one last one that I might be able to finish up.  Always a blast.  Already looking forward to next year. Have a great and safe 2021.

Submitted MODOK: John Douglas


John Douglas continues to the bring the artistic ruckus this March with Submission Number 5. John types,

Oh, look, here's more bit of spam for your Blog (and mine)!  In this case, it's a parody of Bazooka Joe comics.  That's right, kids, I'm old enough for remember getting small briquettes of gum which was hard as a rock and wrapped in a small, wax paper comic! Here's to hoping I get one more submission in before March 31st, fingers crossed!

"KA-ZOOP" is pretty excellent, as is this fantastic submission. We're always honored to share this month with you Mr. Douglas and look forward to whatever art you can get to us here in the final days.
We'll also gladly plug your personal art blog over at https://johndouglasart.blogspot.com/.

Monday Mini MODOK_005

The last Monday of the month showcases one of my favorite MODOK drawings of the year. Was hoping to do an animation cycle with it in Photoshop, but time got the better of me and for now it'll just have to be this brush pen sketch covered in Photoshop painting. Only a few more days in this month of Mindblast, so if you are gonna flex your MODOK art making muscles now is the time. Because when we reach April 2021, we'll be done!

Here's an image to bookend my post from yesterday morning. Believe I sketched it with a ballpoint pen and am rather happy with how the color treatment turned out. We've only got a couple more days to go here in March, so let's Mindblast to the very last.

Put some MODOK in your March,

Submitted MODOK: Nelson Diaz




The mental organism known as Nelson Dias sent us this quartet of photos chronicling his recent artistic exploits. He writes, 

At the start of the pandemic last year, found myself chatting with my buddy Mr. Pedro Delgado when I started this cardboard Modok sculpture that I didn't finish in time. Still not finished but hey- gotta get it up for this March Modok Madness regardless!

I remember that phone call, time sure does fly. We're thrilled that Nelson is sharing his colorful corrugated creation with the blog today. Many thanks again for sending the photos and sharing in the event this year.
