We had a great time during our art show in May at Culture Brewing in Ocean Beach. The show featured drawings around the neighborhood of O.B., here’s a video on Youtube. There was a benefit night for a Southern California German Shepherd Rescue, our friend Mary wrote about it on her food blog, This Tasty Life. Prints of these O.B. drawings are still available, e-mail us with any questions or requests. The drawings can also be seen in our latest comic book, Unemployed in Ocean Beach, which can be found on the shelves of Galactic Comics in O.B., or at our Etsy store.
The Legend of Rudy McBacon is a self-published comic book created by Frank A. and Derek O. Eight issues of the comic were printed between 2004 and 2010, chronicling the adventures of a minor league ballplayer, superhero, monster slayer, Allied soldier, Old West gunhand, community service activist, post-apocalyptic scavenger, and intergalactic drunk. There is still a lot of ambitious rhetoric about putting together the long-awaited ninth issue, but so far only a few preliminary outlines exist. In the meantime, new artwork can be found on our online sketchbook, a collection of drawings, paintings and links to other McBacon-related stuff. We’ll keep trying to dig up some more old comic-con photos, too, you can see the Rudy McBacon crew mingling with other comic book artists, horror movie icons, various costumed weirdos and fellow comic book geeks. We’ve also still got our Cafe Press store going, if you’re in the market for a tasteless throw pillow.
