Submitted MODOK: Rob Zailo

Rob to the RESCUE!

The inbox had been a little quiet over the past days.
So, I was super pumped to find this submission from Mr. Zailo who writes,
Hello,
Here is my submission for this year.  Better late than never right?
Truer words were never spoken Rob.  Now is the time for MODOK, gotta get at those drawings.
Just a little more than one week left!

For more work from Rob you can visit him at  www.zailo.comfacebook.robert.zailo, or rzailo.deviantart.

Pedro's Mid-Week MODOK!

Hey all. 

Third installment of the year here.  Really like making my MODOK images colorful, but may have gotten too much darkness and stuff going on here.  Either way I had fun with it and I'm looking forward to one more magnificent week of MMM 2017!

Keep on Mindblasting!

MODOK À La Mode

MINI MODOK!

Love drawing MODOKS in my margins during March.

Hello Fellow MODOK Marchers!

We're pulling into week three here at MMM2017 and are really excited to see what comes next.
For now I'll post up this little scribble I'd colored.  Started out as a Micron pen sketch with a dash of marker before I hit it with some photoshop. Real tiny little MODOK images are always fun.

Make sure you don't miss the chance to make some MODOK this March!

Hot Earl Grey MODOK!

Quick little Micron Pen sketch with some photoshop chopped in.
Another short one.

I really enjoy doing simple little doodles of MODOK and seeing how I can punch them up within the Photoshop program.  A bulk of my day job involves painting over rough drawings and trying to plus them whenever possible.  Had fun with this one too.  I was concerned about the logistics of a cup of hot tea with steam in the vacuum of space.  But, then I remembered that he has Mindblasts to keep it in that cup, and keep it HOT!
Mindblast Level 8, Engage!

I'll be in my ready room,

Submitted MODOK: Eric Collins

"What's best in life Conan?"... "I'm Modok now!"
I typically see Eric at a weekly figure drawing event in the city.  I must have mentioned March MODOK Madness when we last spoke, because this evening the inbox recieved some Cimmerian inspired mental organism Artwork!

It's truly good to be MODOK! He'll Mindblast his enemies, see them driven before him and hear some lamentations.  
If you fancy a peek at more work from Eric you can visit him at oobust_dot_com!






Contemplate this, on the tree of Whoa!

Submitted MODOK: Ryan Kavanaugh

M.O.D.O.B (Mental Organism Designed Only for Bottle-Flipping) 

Ryan returns this year with a slick MODOK submission.  While tying a little pop culture reference to our favorite mental organism he writes,
M.O.D.O.B (Mental Organism Designed Only for Bottle-Flipping) shows off dem skills with a mighty mindflip.
 I'd have to imagine that MODOK can mindflip anything he wishes water bottles, mayo jars, the family sedan.  Heck, you name it he'll flip it.  Also, if you're keen to see more work from Mr. Kavanaugh you can flip on over to visit him at instagram.com/kavanaw.

Pedro's Mid Week MODOK!

Quick Micron scribble with a splash o' color.
Hey Everyone,

We're smack dab in the middle of March! It's been, a fun year so far, and I'm making sure to continue contributing my MODOK imagery to the cause.  I find myself fiddling with the digital color a lot lately.  Maybe I'll post some more uncolored drawings next week.

Mindblasts make the MODOK!

MODOK drinks Coffee to the power of eleven in this Fantastic Fractal by MOTHbot.
Mr. MOTHbot has been sending us a steady stream of MODOK art this March.
Gilbert definintely has the spirit of the MODOK season, and writes:
OK, here's my big one I've been doing all the work on the last two weeks.
M.O.D.O.C., The Mandlebrot Organism Designed Only for Coffee. It takes an infinite amount of power to keep mindblasting all the time. Makes me wish I had a mug of myself I could drink coffee from.
Happy 10th March MODOK Madness.

Papercraft + MODOK = The delightful work of Collin David.
Collin sent us this awesome MODOK papercraft photo (with a BEEKEEPER even!) and writes,
This papercraft MODOK that you can make at home includes multiple alternate faces, extra issue-specific weapons, and even an AIM buddy with a giant science-gun. Make as many as you want! Make an army! They're mostly dopes, so you'll need a lot! Give MODOK all of the moods! Just don't let him fall out of his chair, or you might get a surprise. (Spoiler: it's a butt tattoo.) Download your MODOK PDF here, and AIM Buddy PDF here.
Yes, Print these bad boys out so that a papercraft mental organism can sit on your desk and remind you that MARCH is for MODOK!  If you'd like to see more photos of these beauties pop on over to Collin's site mindlessshelfindulgence.

Sub-MODOK!

Mindblasts at 2o,ooo Leagues!
Hey all,
Just set up some posts here for the next few days, and figured that it's good time for me to throw another submission of my own into the already rich pool of 2017 MODOK art.

Not sure I've ever drawn him as a deep sea diving Submarine before.  But, I figure it's probably something Ol' MODOK would be keen on.  You know, muck up the water supplies and generally cheese off Namor.

Hope you are all having a fantastic MMM2017!
Keep on Mindblasting!

Hello fellow MODOK Marchers,
 
It's been a good first week of March MODOK Madness.  I just need to find some additional time to do more images of my own.  Here's a quick little sketch that I slapped some digital paint on tonight.


Hope you dig, and keep the MODOK art coming!

From The Line It Is Drawn, Week 326:
Based on Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely’s classic “four panel”/”eight words” origin for Superman from “All Star Superman” #1, name a comic book character and our artists will do a four panel/eight word origin for that character.

Hi peeps,

Take care. All The best from Amsterdam,

Here are a couple pix of where I ended up on day two. This guy has gotten a lot of love and recognition from comic con attendees. You know parents are raising their kids right when a 5 year old runs up with a big smile on their face and yells, "I know him! He's MODOK!"

Hi,

I’ve never submitted anything to you guys in the past, nor have I even drawn MODOK before, although I’ve wanted to in the past. Here’s my first drawing of the killing machine! Done with Berol art markers and a Paper Mate Flair pen.
Many thanks for sending this artwork our way Mr. Blanchard. March MODOK Madness is indeed a magical time, and for me it's greatest power is drawing new submissions from A.I.M. fans everywhere.  You make March awesome.

I've gotta go by some Flair pens,

MODOK For Brain Cancer Awareness


From The Line It Is Drawn, Week 291 from May 2016:
This week is a special theme. Caanan Grall, one of the original artists on the Line it is Drawn and the creator of the excellent Max Overacts, sadly has a brain tumor. He is getting it operated on Tuesday and he asked if we could do a special Line about cancer and tumors this week, with him making suggestions and the artists also choosing ideas of their own. While we were planning this, sadly Darwyn Cooke also passed away from cancer. Caanan suggested we expand it to a general anti-cancer week. Cooke was from Canada and Caanan lives in Canada, thus we thought it would be nice to mention that Cooke’s family requested that anyone interested in donating to charity in honor of Cooke send the money to the Canadian Cancer Society or to The Hero Initiative. Meanwhile, the Gralls have a GoFundMe that has been generously funded so far, but you know that they could use even more, as they deal with Caanan being out of work for months.
