Did this one the other day, just got all the black in, colors next.

Saw this thing at a thrift store type place, what caught my eye more that anything was the "FTW 666" patch. Either FTW, or 666 alone are a doosey, but together, that's somethin else. I would have bought the whole vest for that one patch, but it was $65. Maybe they peeled it off some dead biker or something. Plus check out that crazy dragon.

Last but not least, heres the 1" pin set that will come with the HG LEWIS package I'll be putting out soon through YERSINIA PESTIS. L to R, Montag the Wizard of Gore, Faud Ramsess, Blood Feast logo, She Devil on Wheels (Black magic book not included).

Yesterday I stumbled upon this awesome Blog . I urge anyone who likes their Seventies as heavy as a lead Tyrannosaurus, to check it out asap! There's a bunch of awesome comps of rare Heavy Rock that have been blowing my mind repeatedly since I found them. Great stuff, tell them I sent you.

Not really a fan of Vice magazine, but I dug up this oldie from their website, about the shirt I drew for MIDNIGHT. Some parts are funny.


Sometimes art and poetry can align in magical, unanticipated ways. Occasionally, the triumphs of human expression can surpass your wildest fantasies and touch on every sensory nerve ending in total bliss. When this genius phenomenon stimulates all the prime faculties at once, its basically like a giant pentagram illuminated by purple fire on your freaking face. Its like three corners of the hot pink neon triangle of sight, sound, and touch have been galvanized with lasers and the head and heart just violently explode from the forces of beautiful truth. This beautiful truth is the perfect synthesis of piquant imagery and verse’s supreme mastership. Usually, this matrimony of imagery and word is crypted in galleries for folks to admire from safe distances. But, this time, you can say fuck off to that gallery shit and roll like an advanced professor of the poetic arts with this masterwork on your tits. Behold! It is NOW Midnight!

First of all, this font is flawless! It’s human. I can feel that fist gripped around the blackest sharpie digging out the best slash to make that G! Not to mention the awesome as fuck letter D and the slightly upside down crossed T. This is simple, direct and perfect craftsmanship of lettering. Bathroom wall style. Perfect!

Second, we have a super sexy demon-witch-temptress with dragon wings punctuated with talons, huge boobs, agape skeleton face in a summoning, half-curtsy gesticulation stance from inside a scaldy, steaming cauldron atop a red reversed pentagram! Awesome, fierce, and feminist! I am so happy she has pubic hair. I'm going to assume the artist is male because of the boob rendering being slightly on the fantastic size, but the shading for pubic hair tells me he has been to that nice place before. Plus, her hips, waist, and flowy hair are all sexy too. She also sorta has wispy bangs like Mischa Barton. Cute.

So, after all that kickin’ bunz art and delinquent font—which are inspirational and harmonious in every way imaginable—plus a little erotic wicked shit, we have the word “midnight.” It is always scary, even when uttered by the tiniest child or oldest of old ladies, and completely melds sex and evil into one abstract generalization for being up to no good. You know that is what we want here! It just gets better. This beautiful masterpiece now also becomes poetry when you exit the room and flash the back of this t-shirt. This is the most perfectly sweet precise refrain for an extra awesome fun-ass, awesome as fuck good time. How could anyone even possibly argue that if you can’t stop the vomit you are absolutely having the best friggin’ time of your garsh derned life? Way better than can’t stop the blood. Totally better than can’t stop the poopy. Remarkably smarter than can’t stop the pus. Profoundly surpasses can’t stop the drool. Although wait, drooling is totally fun.

Here's another oldie from the crypt. My friend at interviewed me a while ago, here's what happened...

Ten Questions With…Josh McAlear

Boston-area tattoo artist and illustrator Josh McAlear eats Boston-area tattoo artists and illustrators and shits burritos. McAlear is a super talented dude and has tattooed the shit out of both Will Smith and Oh Mars. He works out of Redemption Tattoo in Cambridge, MA and has designed for Toxic Holocaust, Motherboar, and Nunslaughter. Josh was cool enough to take some time away from drawing goats to have a round of Ten Questions with RBM. We thank you Josh.

What was the last book you read?

Reign in Blood (33 1/3)
by D. X. Ferris

Why should we hire you?

I tattooed Will Smith (just for the record, I’m not saying I actually tattooed Will Smith).

What is your Bizarro World name?

According to the rules, wouldn’t it just be “Bizarro Josh”? But if I could pick, “Lörd öv the Wretched Earth’s Wörthless Inhabitants”, or “Phinneas” would be cool.

If you could have sex with anyone in history, who would you bone down with (unprotected)?

The inventor of the Ugg Boot. You mean bone down with chainsaws made of fire and napalm, right?

What cartoon villain do you relate with the most?

I see that Fish guy took Skeletor already, so, my second would probably be Nanny from Muppet Babies.

What is your “Making Love” album?

Thor, “Keep The Dogs Away“, or, Muppet Babies, “Opening Theme“.

What is your favorite curse word?

My soon to be wife said, “doody booty” once, that was good. The one word version would be “doodybooty”.

It’s cool that they let you play your favorite Disney soundtrack at work. What is that again?

Oh, you mean “The Emperor’s New Groove?”

Congratulations! Ben & Jerry’s have decided to name an ice cream after you. What’s it called?

“Scottish/Armenian Fro Yo Peace Oph Shite”.

Finally, a round of Fuck, Marry, Kill…which one of these characters would you fuck, which would you marry, and which would you kill: R2-D2, The Iron Giant, Data.

Grow up man.


Marry-The Iron Giant


In other news, did this yesterday. Don't ask.

Doing this on this guy Brian's chest today. Super good guy, and he loves Judas Priest.

And last but not least, home sweet home...

As I mentioned earlier, here's the intro I did for my section of Paper Machete zine, and a review for the movie ABSURD. All graphics by me, click on the images for a bigger version.

Watched this one last night. For me, the quality of William Girdler movies is up there with Al Adamson, Ted V. Mikels, and even HG lewis. These movies are a raw glimpse into America during the 60's and heavy 70's. Accidentally stylistic and as unhomoginized as it got back then. The only thing that upset me about Asylum Of Satan was that the "love interest" from Three On A Meathook plays the blind chick in this movie. Her acting makes me want to hammer a nail into my hand, and that's saying something coming from me. Anyways, awesome movie.

These suckers were waiting for me when I got home from work today, along with some hooks and hammers for the NWN project, ha!

Here's a review I did a few months ago for my friend J Rodricks zine "PAPER MACHETE". I don't know if or when it's coming out, so I figured I'd ruin the surprise and post it here for now. I also did a review for ABSURD, which is another awesome movie, and an intro for my section of the zine where I get all misty eyed about Creature Double Feature, which was the local monster movie show here in Boston when I was a kid. All graphics on those pages are also done by me, click on the picture for a version that's readable to human eyeballs.

While I'm at it, here's a tattoo I've been working on, still in progress...


What an awesome movie. I scored a boot of the Japanese version, which I assume means uncut violence, but also means blurred out women's pubes. That kind of censoring seems like the ideal conditions for breeding insane, sexually frustrated, blood thirsty maniacs, but who am I to say. Anyways, got to watch this one while I drew and ate breakfast this morning, classic Giallo recipe here. Totally stylized, tons or red herrings, happenin soundtrack, and the killer is super cool looking. Imagine Rorschach from Watchmen if you dipped him in black ink. If you can, track this one down, pretty sure there isn't an official American DVD version in print, but boots are fairly easy to find in the usual places on the internet.

Here's the sketches I sent Yosuke from Nuclear War Now Prod. I don't want to give too much away about this one, but I will say this, the image will be for an album I'm very excited about, and fans of the releases on NWN will be as well. Also, I'll be doing a logo for the band. Oh yeah, this is going to be a photo, rather than an illustration, so it will be something new for me. It's gonna involve a skinned goat head, cow entrails, some meat hooks, blood, teeth, bones, allot of candles, and some of my hair, ha! That's quite a grocery list, I'm sure I'll have some interesting stories about shopping for this stuff. I'll post more about the project as time goes on.

I've edited this post so I can use it as a place to keep a portfolio of all recent illustrations I've done. I'll add to it as I finish new stuff, and I've put a link to it on the main page. Click on any image for a bigger version.

I didn't do the graphic design for this shirt, just the illustration.

Only did the illustration and everything thats red on this one, but I like how the final product came out, text and all.
