Miss Mel and I, circa aught and eight

July 25th, 2013 by Corey A. Edwards

Miss Mel and I

Saw a site featuring animated gifs made from photo booth images and I had to try it out.

You can just about hear the gibbering once this thing loads and gets up to speed.

This makes a good soundtrack.

Love you, Punky.
Pappy.

POINK! Spring-Loaded, Japanese Robot Fists!

April 18th, 2013 by Corey A. Edwards

Poink! Spring-Loaded, Japanese Robot Fists!

Goofing around with the detail collage for my post on the “Instrucciones” poster inspired me to create a few fun (and totally stupid) products utilizing an iconic graphic from one of the instruction sheets: a spring-loaded, Japanese robot fist flying through the air!

I dunno about you but I’m definitely getting one of the shirts

Poink! Spring-Loaded, Japanese Robot Fists!

What Is Stereophonic Sound?

April 8th, 2013 by Corey A. Edwards

What Is Stereophonic Sound?

Cobbled together from many different sources, most vintage hi-fi/stereo ads, this graphic initially started off as one of my desperate, weekly attempts to come up with an interesting Facebook cover/avatar.

Instrucciones – Installment of Robot

Instrucciones - Detail collage

My interest in Japanese toys has very little to do with actually playing with them.

It Takes Guts

August 9th, 2012 by Corey A. Edwards

 

CoreyA while back I purchased a great little book of Japanese monsters, shown in cross-section, in an attempt to shed a little light upon just what it is that makes them tick.

Great concept. Hours of fun.

The only problem is, the darned thing is all in Japanese! The nerve of these people! (they also made a mistake and printed the whole thing backwards – someone lost his job at the printing house that day, I can tell you)

Anyway, I took it upon myself to decipher those inscrutable little squigglies that littered the page and present to you here the few I manged to get through before passing out with exertion. Phew. My brain. (be sure to click on them for a closer view)

Farceblech

July 23rd, 2012 by Corey A. Edwards

What with all the changes in my life of late – all the new responsibilities, all the new distractions, all the new fun, plus a return to musical expression after a long hiatus – I have very little time, or even inclination to be totally honest, to do much e-shareable creating. That being said, I have kept up with my weekly profile update on everyone’s favorite complete waste of time website, Facebook, and so feel an urge to share here with those who may not have caught sight of my unending brilliance on said site.

The Facebookening

April 13th, 2012 by Corey A. Edwards

About the only form of creativity I can find the time to manage these days …

from an ongoing series of Facebook avatars I feel some odd compulsion to keep making: 1, 2, unt 3.

Fezbūk – Another 16

December 16th, 2011 by Corey A. Edwards

With the holiday season upon us *and* my packing to move, there has been little time or oomph for me to be all bloggy but the madness continues, if in smaller ways.

Here is another batch of Facebook avatars to prove that I am still breathing, if only through my mouth. (the first collections can be seen here and here)

With the introduction of Facebook Timeline, I note that the profile pic has gone down to a square in all but the gallery view so I may have to change up my approach … time will tell.

Gehennan Refinery, Spewer of Cities

October 9th, 2011 by Corey A. Edwards

Gehennan Refinery, Spewer of Cities

I’m toying with putting a calendar together of composites/distortions I’ve done and, coming up a bit short of the 12 images I need, I started playing with a few of my existing photos.

One of them made an almost immediate impression on me as a surreal scene of biblical, industrial horror. A couple of hours later and we have the scene above: fantastic, unrealistic, yet somehow evoking in me that sense of ecological nightmare.

Vast stretches of steel, concrete and stone, dimly illuminated by artificial light under a toxic sky, with only a few, meager regions left for poorly maintained agriculture to limp along, almost as an afterthought, on the tortured remnants of dry, scratched earth that remain.

Beautiful, aint it? =)

FarceBook: Alternate Profile Pics – 32 More

August 27th, 2011 by Corey A. Edwards

As I continue to submit to the ubiquitous Facebook STD (Socially Truncated Discourse), so too have I continued my practice of creating alternate avatars:

For the bulk of the time I’ve been on Facebook, I’ve employed weekly variants of the default avatar proffered by the site rather than my own, lovely puss.

I’m On A Tear!

October 16th, 2010 by Corey A. Edwards

Another batch – hey, it’s October: monsters!

Some more, some more …

Geddum while they’re hawt.

Monsters n’ Robots n’ T-shirts: oh my!

October 13th, 2010 by Corey A. Edwards

As I continue to work at upgrading my pokey, old website and organizing the photos on my harddrives (!), other, long-forgotten projects continue to rear their heads. One of which is before you, now:

The Chairman

November 15th, 2009 by Corey A. Edwards

You’ve seen this before – or variations of it, anyway.

This is one of my friends, lovingly referred to by a small knot of Japanese toy fiends as “The Chairman.”

Hatless Hill

March 28th, 2009 by Corey A. Edwards

Another friend, seen here in a way that is extemely rare: with naked hair.

Unca Sjoen

March 26th, 2009 by Corey A. Edwards

This is a friend of mine. Actually he’s a mutant bastard who threatened to pull my lungs out through my urethra if I didn’t sketch him up.

And he could do it, too – he’s all about the urethra, Unca Sjoen is.

Watch it, kiddies.

Rumpled Feasings

Donovon

March 10th, 2009 by Corey A. Edwards

This is an Illustrator illustration (imagine that) of a fellow I used to work with at a bronze art foundry. He was a patineur named Donovon (now he’s a painter named Donovon – hotcha).

Low

March 5th, 2009 by Corey A. Edwards

This is an Illustrator update of an ink sketch I did in a small notebook a few years back.

The moon is purely digital – the intertwining branches were all of the sketch when I scanned it in.

I could draw things like this every day, had I the time. I wonder why?

This is an Illustrator illustration of a cell phone pic. Aint I cute?

Kissie Faces

November 8th, 2008 by Corey A. Edwards

I wasn’t making kissie-faces at the guy.

I just happened to be whistling as I got out of my truck and ended up face to face with him, separated only by his rolled up window.

I was recently commissioned to create a poster for some friends of mine who have an upcoming show at a local theatre.

Before and after:

The best part of this was turning the woman, Vickie – one of the nicer people I have ever had the pleasure to meet – into a demon.

If you’re in the area, be sure to check out the show:
