banners, groveling and peen

     There’s a couple of things I’ve been dragging my feet on and completely forgetting about, respectively.  Namely, the following:

     First of all, Jesse Campbell over at ZOMBIE BITES has picked up my banner-making slack (this wasn’t even the first time!) and created the nifty banner you see to the left for OPG 2013: CruMpLe MaNiA!!  The very act of which is incredibly generous and forgiving of him especially considering the complete lack of support I’ve given him over the better part of a year or more.  His artistic efforts over the last couple of years have reached levels I am still struggling to attain and I truly admire his persistence and courage.  Take a minute to stop on by and offer your support in comments or donations.  He’s really thrown himself into his work and deserves reward for his efforts.

     Secondly, holy moly crap!!  Can you believe I almost forgot the OCTOBER WEEN for this year’s Octoberween-Palooza-Ganza!!?!  Herp derp, Ed!  It’s an O-PG not a PG, you dumbass!  Anyway, here it is, freshly drawn in full crumple style:


     This crumple is also fair game for anyone participating in this year’s OPG if you like your artwork filled with bloody, fuzzy peen.  As always, thanks for stopping by.

feather-splosion and monkey hypnosis

     My cable modem died last night, severing my connection to ye olde Internets but now I’m back with an EXTREME SUPER-PALOOZA DOUBLE-DAWG CRAZY-CRUMPLE post!!  Behold, as I amaze you with not one, but TWO WHOLE IMAGES with mind-shattering commentary to rock your soul and break your heart:


     This guy is a bit more unique than most of my crumples.  His lack of a forehead, small brain and feathery explosion make him look like some sort of crazy insectiod witch doctor.  Perhaps this is all the Fuzzy Skeletonian HMO can afford these days.  It’s no wonder there’s such a high rate of anxiety and bleeding in the Fuzzy Skeletonian population.


     I originally passed over this guy but now I’ve come back to him because he has this kinda cute monkey hypnosis presence about him.  Of course, if you let him hypnotize you he’d probably just end up eating your face off but that’s really just alternative medicine to a Fuzzy Skeletonian.

     This concludes the EXTREME SUPER-PALOOZA DOUBLE-DAWG CRAZY-CRUMPLE post!  YOU’RE WELCOME WORLD!!1!

sweeping across


     This guy has a sort of energy wave sweeping across behind him.  This is a feature I’ve created in the past.  Although I don’t think the wave’s symbolism is as clear as it used to be.  The man who drew the above image is certainly much different than he was when the this feature first appeared on paper.

narrow-headed intensity


     I like how these narrow-headed guys turn out.  They’re smaller stature seems to give them more intensity somehow.  This guy also has my patented “elbow neck” feature that you may have seen before.

     Thanks for stopping by.  The wine I had for dinner and Vangelis’ sweet sounds are starting to lower my eyelids.  Nighty nite, folks.

mouth bleed and self-abuse (not the good kind)


     They say if you dream that you’re bleeding from your mouth it means you’re doing something that’s bad for you but you keep doing it anyway.  While I’ve never dreamt this specifically it is a very frequent feature in my artwork which is largely unplanned and subject to my unconscious impulses and desires.  I’ve also been actively abusing myself lately in the form of a stupid, competitive, online game which only makes me even more anxious than I already am.  But I keep playing it even though I realize the detrimental way in which it affects me.  Must be a symptom of a deeper disturbance.

one-eyed dad bastard


     This is one of several crumples where I deliberately drew lines to either side of the one eye to emulate my father’s eye patch strap just to see how it felt.  It felt forced but I also think it adds a bit of realism for me.  Helps me keep in mind what I’m trying to confront when a Fuzzy Skeletonian emerges on the page.

bloody fuzzy and the OPG


     I won’t tell you where I’ve been artistically but the above image is fairly close to the mark.  I will tell you that I’ve officially dropped my Vincent personae.  It just wasn’t feeling right, it’s not who I am anymore.  My name is Eddie Jones and I will be you host, guide and victim as we slog our way, step by heavy step, towards the mountain of fear that is The Fuzzy Skeletonian.

     In other news, October is creeping up behind me with impure thoughts.  So grab your vasoline and get ready for Octoberween-Palooza-Ganza 2013!   Stop on by this coming month, enjoy your beverage (or beverages) of choice and don’t dress up in any of your good clothes cause it’s gonna get all nasty and crumply.  Details to follow over the weekend.

weird energy


     You must be all like, “What the hell, man!?  Changing to this brand new FUCKING AWESOME header AND changing the blog title without an explanation!!??!!”  Well I gotta tell ya, it’s all about this weird energy that’s been driving me lately.

     I mean, did you know there can be a PURPOSE to life?  A reason for trying?  I thought I had it all figured out a few years ago.  Thought life was meaningless, pointless, a random existence bereft of coherence and understanding.  Then I got back into my art.  In the years since then I’ve had fun with my art, gotten inspired by other artists, old and new and come to realize that my art is truly a part of me that I cannot deny.

     This new clarity of purpose and the accompanying motivation has resulted in a positive, negative, swirling, weird energy that’s got me producing art almost everyday (I’m even posting to Twitter and shit).  I’m also out of my mind with fear.  Having dreams and goals for the future is not what I’m used to.  I’ve spent almost all of my adult life in an angry, protective, nihilistic, defeatism and having hope for the future is a very strange and scary thing for me now.  However, amidst the fear and weirdness, things are starting to become clear here and there, like my new header.

     The new header (and blog title) is really more of a head-ING for me to travel towards.  I’ve decided that the concept of the Fuzzy Skeletonian needs to be pursued in earnest, explored fully, with an eye towards bringing it to an eventual mature completion before I die.  I decided Torso Man (a.k.a Fuzzy Skeletonian #1) should lead the way with his fuzzy fuzzy torso of power!  I’ve also been cranking out more and more Fuzzy Skeletonian crumple drawings like the one you see above.  I’ve got a stack nearly a foot tall that grows everyday!

     I hope the future brings good things to my art.  I hope my art brings good things to the future.  And I hope I keep my head and don’t fall to my fears.  Finally, in closing, welcome to The Fuzzy Skeletonian.  I am your host, Vincent.
