Just a Reminder...

PENCILS DOWN PEOPLE!
Sadly the month is OVER, and in spite of March ending.  We all must take a moment to rememberone very important thing about MODOK. 
 He IS, HAS BEEN BEFORE and FOREVER WILL BE
MIGHTY!
      It's been many moons since that evening way back in 2008.  Having drinks at Jimmy's Corner here in NY with my friend Brendan.  When we figured that making a MODOK blog for the month of March would be a stellar idea.  So we finished our drinks and proceeded to order another few rounds.
      It wasn't until that following day that we both sobered up and again we agreed that it was still a great idea.  So, we hopped onto blogger and nabbed the site for MMM and got to work.  It took off without too much difficulty at all.  People are cool like that, and MODOK fans are phenomenal with their love and devotion to this Unique Kirby creation. 
I'll take this chance to extend my thanks to everyone who shares this blog, and takes time to commit they're craft with the appreciation of MODOK!  This blog is great because of all of you.  You all RULE.
     It's become an annual treat for me, a fun way to spend my March. You know, right before the tax man descends on my good humor.  The Blog also keeps me creative and completely in the dark about what the hell is happening with college hoops.  But equally important is that this event keeps me in touch with my friend Brendan.
He's a most excellent friend, it's my pleasure to know him.  Without him I'd know far less about MODOK and comics in general.  Thanks Brendan.
For All of this I am grateful,  It's been another AWESOME year and I hope everyone has enjoyed the MMM2013 festivities.

Keep on MINDBLASTING,

P.S.  We should be back up again for 2014, and may even find time to spiff up the blog a bit. Any posts after this point will be put on hold until next year.

Submitted MODOK: Kevin & Co.

Here is some last minute MODOK from Kevin who got his children into the MODOK mindset this March and writes,
Hope we make it in time.  Great group this year!
"MODOK PRANK FAIL" by C. - Spidey and Deadpool try to
prank MODOK with a booby-trap button, forgetting that MODOK's feet
don't touch the ground.

"MODOK STYLE" by S.- MODOK tries to get in on the
"Gangnam Style" trend, much to the disgust of Psy.
Thanks to Kevin and to the young artists (We'll Call um' C. and S. for safeties sake) for helping round out another great year of March MODOK Madness.  Stuff like this always makes the event worthwhile.  You guys RULE!

Two familiar faces "mug" it up in Brandon's submission.  The MODOK mug was a Christmas gift, perhaps even a SWEET Christmas gift if you asked Luke Cage.  Check out some of Brandon's illustration work here.

Masters Of The Uni-DOK: Villain Edition

Yep, my Masters Of The Universe vibe continues.
So, I added a villain to offset my previous hero sidekick painting of ORKO.   Heck, MODOK is a super terrifying robot/human hybrid type villain right?  So, I might as well paint him that way.
I've chosen TRAPJAW because I completely love his design, and figured it would work well with some floating hover chair tech.  Plus I had to be sure to ad that little loopy think on his head so that he could zip line into a fight possibly verses Iron Man.

The Line It Is Drawn: Mic? Magtanong




From The Line It Is Drawn, Mic? tackles "MODOK/OMAC" as the prompt.

Submitted MODOK: Gavin de Lint

Gavin has returned to the blog with some new visual goodness.  Here he has channeled some Evan Dorkin inspiration all over our beloved MODOK, bushy eyebrows and all!  Gotta love that linework too, I'm a fan of this I imagine MODOK to be a very good stand in for MILK.  Super Angry.  
Gavin writes,

This silly idea's been in my head for a while.  I'm a huge Milk and Cheese fan, I hope some of the other visitors here are, too.
Yep Gavin, I'm pretty sure there are some fans here on the board and, being one of them I wanted to thank you for sharing your time and skill with us this March.
Gavin has a WEBSITE!  Go NOW and check it out @gavin.delint.ca
You'll be glad you did.

Submitted MODOK: Joseph Barrile



Joseph is ripping it up this year, this being his third submission.  He writes

Here’s some history from the MODOKIPEDIA on “Keep Calm and Fear MODOK”:
Keep Calm and Fear MODOK is a propaganda poster produced by A.I.M. in the year 2039 during the beginning of the World Wide MODOK War, intended to instill fear and lower the morale of all of Earth’s people in the coming violent overthrow of every nation in the World and to be a warning of the wrath of Earth’s new overlord.
See?  You learn something new everyday.  And for those of you who feel that MODOKIPEDIA isn't a valid and credited source for information, MINDBLAST FOR YOU!

You can see more of Joe's work at http://joesgiantrobots.com/ and be sure to follow him on Twitter: @JoesGiantRobots.

Thanks again, Joe!

Masters Of The Uni-DOK...

ORKO-DOK!
Yep, I got a Masters Of The Universe vibe here so I added some MODOK in an attempt to be all painterly and stuff.
For a Hero, Opted for ORKO.  Ummm, if your looking for an acronym maybe I'll trot out the term ORKODOK: Organism Really Keen On Destruction Obliteration & Killing.  This design lent itself well to MODOK, sure the ears look funny and the hat too come to think of it.  But, the hover chair is completely concealed making the outfit seem more ghostly.

Submitted MODOK: Rich Borges


This MODOK comes to us from Rich who's been with the MMM vibe for many years now. I like the idea of our favorite mental organism getting around on a motorized scooter, probably doing wheelies and stoppies amongst other stunts.  While he rambles about town, running errands and destroying random towsnfolk.

Submitted MODOK: Wayne Quackenbush


Mr. Quackenbush, the excellent owner of Annex Comics in Newport, R.I.! Sent us this fantastic last minute M.O.D.O.K.  With that menacing mug of evil and that hover chair of horror.  Oh, and don't forget that grimace of supreme villainy.


Many thanks to Wayne for his continued support or the March MODOK Madness.


Keep on Mindblasting everyone.

Submitted MODOK: Tom Chamberlain

Tom is a fan of the blog, but decided to step up his fandom this year.  So busted out his drawing utensils, got to work, and sent us this Killer MODOK.  Tom Writes,

Submitted MODOK: John Douglas



MODOK fan, John Douglas, submitted this stunning MODOK this year and writes:

Every year, I mean to submit something to MARCH MODOK MADNESS... after all, MODOK is a super-cool character--one of my favorites! However, as I am only a MIDDLING ORGANISM DESIGNED ONLY for KVETCHING, I would forget until about April 3rd or so each year.
Well, not this time! Here's my submission to your delightful site! I hope you find it acceptable.
Not only is it acceptable, it is awesome.  Thanks for hopping onboard on time this year, we're happy to have you!

MODOK and his Cosmic Cube.

MODOK is a master of THE CUBE!
MODOK always covets the cosmic cube. But, during his downtime he does indulge in another cube that he enjoys very much... The RUBIK'S variety.
I had colors on this but have since dabbed them back to work the values a bit more  I may have to swap in new colors before posting it up later.

Hope you dig,

Submitted MODOK: Monte Michaelis



Monte Michaelis hits a two-fer this year, depending on which way you hold the piece.  Another ex-PopCap, now WildTangent designer, Monte writes:
This year I tried out an idea that's been kicking around in my head for a while now: The ARNIM MODOK! It's MODOK one direction and Arnim Zola the other direction. Is your brain not MELTING?!
My brain's often melting, Monte, but it's an unrelated condition.  However, nice work on this piece!  Check out Monte's blog and website for more brain melting fun.

Benwit, returns to the blog again after an absence last year, and he just can't wait to get us more MODOK artwork and writes,
"With much love from Japan!"

Submitted MODOK: SKK

The artist known to us only as SKK sent us this image of an notably angry MODOK in mid flight.

This was just a quick Sharpie doodle on a piece of printer paper. I'm a fan of the art of people like R. Crumb and Marc Hansen, so went with that style. Enjoy!
We're always happy to get MODOK art in March, the materials are never as important as the love of our favorite mental organism designed only for killing.  Many thanks to you for sharing your work with us SKK.

H. Chen put a oo7 villain spin on MODOK and writes,
Finally got off my duff for a quick MODOK submission. Perhaps in his first adventure, James Bond, agent of SHIELD had to face the nefarious...DR. MO!
I've gotta say that if SPECTRE had MODOK on staff, that Bond would've been toasted by Mindblast long ago.
