RIP Phil Vane (Extreme Noise Terror)

From Pig Killer, drummer of Extreme Noise Terror:

"For those of you who haven't heard, it is with great sadness to tell you
that my great friend and Extreme Noise Terror bandmate, Phil Vane passed away in
his sleep last Thursday. After spending months at a time on the road with him on
the ENT tours, I saw nothing but a good, honest man. Gonna miss him."

This Friday!

I (Hank Armadillo) will be DJing and probably be taking requests in exchange for beer.


Fritz Lange's futurist masterpiece, which is a prophetic vision of a post-industrial land where the plutocratis live and play in the beautiful city, while the working class toil in the grimy subterrenean underground.

Sketchbook Drawings: Chinese New Year

I know, I know, the Chinse lunar new year has already passed, but I got inspired to sketch these drawings out and build off of them.

1) 2011 is the year is the year of the metal rabbit, which I gave a black metal treatment. Not inspired by Donny Darko.

2)My Chinese astrological symbol, the metal rooster (or cock, if you prefer), also given a black metal treatment. Not to be confused with Abraxas, the Gnostic deity.

Sketches were done with a BIC, then the outlines and fills were done with Faber Castell 4 PITT.

Blizzard Beasts

Survived the most extreme blizzard that I experienced since moving to Chicago in 2001. Immortal and Emperor were playing in my head the whole time I braved the frostbitten grimness of the blizzard to go home the night the storm reached its peak, most especially during the thundersnow.
