NINE MONTHS of MODOK

NINE YEARS!?!?
Pencils DOWN!

Another year of MODOKS in March has come and gone, those 31 days seem to get a little shorter every year.  But, they are always fun because MODOK brings in a loyal fan base of genuinely talented folks who are awesome all the way around.  Big thanks to all those who support the blog and visit to share your time, talent, and, artwork with others who'd rather toss around Mindblasts as opposed to some jibber-jabber about brackets.   Your submissions make this blog fun, and I thank you all for that.

Also, tremendous thanks to my blogging cohort (and MODOK mentor) Brendan Tobin who met me in a bar nine years ago when we collectively decided that this would be a fun thing to do with the month of March.  We don't get out the bar as much as we used to, but we've more then made up for it by becoming bearded, and strikingly handsome.  Thanks again for another year of MODOK buddy.

Not much else to say.  I've got ice cubes to retrieve and scotch to pour.
Thanks again everyone.

MARCH is for MODOKS!
Mindblasts to the LAST!

Submitted MODOK: Monte Michaelis

The mighty Monte continues his ongoing devotion to MODOK and writes,
Greetings once again!
This is Monte, back for what (I think) is my sixth year. I'm the Creative Director at Geocaching now, and though my job titles may change, my love for March MODOK Madness never will.
I'm coming in real close to the deadline this year, but life has been crazy. I'll do better in 2017!
As always thanks to Mr. Michaelis for his support.  We also invite you to check out his website: www.thisismonte.com.

MODOK Takes On The Hulk!


MODOK employs his giant robot armor to put down the Hulk!  Woop!

Thus ends another March MODOK Madness year, a quiet, calm one this go around, but one filled with many mighty MODOKs as well!  I had fun and hope you did as well.  Much thanks to my annual partner in the madness, Pedro Delgado.  Thanks for taking the editorial and bloggery reins as much as you do each year!  You rock.

Thanks to all of you for your ongoing support these past 9 (NINE!) years.  I'll see you all next March!

Submitted MODOK: The Brothers Lienard







Closing out the month with a bang!  Adrian Lienard sent this along:
Please enjoy MODOK WINS. You can download the game here https://slyshand.itch.io/modok-wins it is absolutely free, and it is a single .exe that you can run on Windows. Modok can't lose, Modok always wins. He destroys his enemies with ease and sits upon his throne waiting to continue doing battle another day. I also made a blogspot dedicated to the game http://modokwins.blogspot.com/ that has some of the in-game sprites that you can see more clearly.
 MODOK in his very own 8-Bit game, whoopin' butt and takin' names!  This is beyond cool!  First, go play the game and visit the game's blog!  And then, check out what the Lienards get into on their own sites:

"Move that football, and you get a MINDBLAST.  Fair warning."

John sent us this Peanuts inspired MODOK and goes on to write:
Greetings! :-)
Here's another submission to March M.O.D.O.K. Madness for 2016--This time, it is with apologies to Charles M. Schultz! After all, Charlie Brown is the O.G. big-headed kid and sort of resembles a certain big-headed Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing. If the mechano-chair fits...
John has also asked that we attach, a plug to his modest art site @: http://johndouglasart.blogspot.com/

Submitted MODOK: Rob McDaniel

MODOK DEMANDS EXACT CHANGE!
Rob sculpts a mean looking MODOK regardless of the scale.  He writes,
I returned to clay sculpting this year, but he's a bit smaller than my entry for 2011. This bite-size MODOK is perched on a stack of quarters to show his scale.
After colorizing 18 frames for the turnaround I decided that was good enough.
Thanks for hosting another month of MODOK-ian appreciation.
Also, scope out more slick sculptures and awesome artwork from Mr. McDaniel over at www.cgmutant.com.

HI

This version of MODOK I did a very TRON inspired concept, much like the MCP in the Tron digital word that's how I see this version of MODOK. He's a powerful Ai that wants to rule cyberspace as well as the physical world, so this MODOK is a MAchine. Organisim. Digitally designed, Only for. Killing. enjoy!

Submitted MODOK: MOTHbot

Totes M.O.Goat.
The mighty MOTHbot returns with his most recent MODOK offering of 2016 and writes,
Another MODOK for March.
Down at the AIM farm, they've been busy with more experiments and making super intelligent, mind-blasting farm animals. Just like this M.O.Goat. He's more likely to save the mind-blasting for some other time, and just knock a SHIELD agent out with a swift headbutt. Unfortunately he often faints when startled.   Happy March
As always you can keep up with the art of MOTHbot art by checking him out at http://mothbot.deviantart.com/.

MONDAY NIGHT MODOK_MINI_PAINT_003!

Yes, 
I'm guilty of spending a part of my weekend watching the second season of DareDevil, and MODOK strongly disapproves of my disloyalty.  So, in order to avoid a swift demise, and make amends for my transgretion. I'm submitting this MONDAY NIGHT MINI PAINT based on a felt tip pen sketch of the MENTAL MASTER.  I also, had to make pancakes for dinner. They were pretty tasty.

March needs MINDBLASTS!

Submitted MODOK: Tom Kelly


Illustrator Tom Kelly submits this outrageous Miz MODOK and writes:
MODOK is such a crazy character and in the past I have do one of the different varieties: evil, silly, goofy, sinister... so for this one I did a gender swap and did Miz MODOK.  I know I should call her MODAM but this one really is in a much more Miz MODOK vein.  I made the illustration using the vector program Adobe Illustrator CS6 with my Wacom tablet.   Hope she made you chuckle.  Thanks!

Mr. Lapierre just adorned his property with this Fine MODOK image and we're pretty sure his neighborhood aught to take notice.  He writes,

I wanted to send along a contribution to this year's MMM. I've done a few in the past and always have fun drawing MODOK. This time I drew him in chalk on my driveway while playing with my kids today.

MONDAY NIGHT MODOK_MINI_PAINT_002!

It's Monday Night.  Do you know where your MODOK is at?
MODOK Marches into week two now, and we've had a great turnout of artwork from many MODOK fans.

Rigth now I am working on some other side projects, but felt the urge to maintain my mantra MONDAY night paints.  This was a pencil sketch that I tackled with some photoshop painting technique I'm trying out.

Hope you dig it.

Keep on Mindblasting,
P

Submitted MODOK: Mothbot

The malevolent MOTHBOT returns with more MODOK for March!  He writes,
During a vacation in the South Pacific, I came across some classified paperwork given to me by a madman who smelled like fish. It told about something called Project R’lyeh. An under-sea AIM base where a subject listed as “Tarleton” was transformed into a monstrous beast. Something called a MODOK;  A “Miskatonic Old-one Dreaming Only of Khaos”.  I’ve enclosed a picture of what the beast supposedly looked like, but all who have gazed upon him were supposedly driven to insanity. And made to smell like fish…
Happy Mind Blasting
