Super Mario Galaxy Hidden Messages

So, this is old news by now, but take a look at the boxart for the original Super Mario Galaxy. Pay special attention to the sparkles on the letters of the title.

Do you see the (accidental?) hidden message?


Nintendo recently released the boxart for the sequel, Super Mario Galaxy 2. Naturally, fans looked to the sparkles for another hidden message. See anything?

U R MI AY. Nothing, right? Well, why not try reading it in reverse?


Nintendo, what are you trying to tell us???

LOST Comics

Eegads, it's been a week since I updated? My focus has really shifted to Banapple. I'm trying to do 3 updates a week over there. But now that I'm working full time, my free time is just getting eaten up.

In any event, here's a quick comic I drew about the latest episode of LOST. It probably won't make sense unless you've seen the episode. @Nedroid is responsible for the #lostcomic trope on Twitter. His comics are pretty much the bee's knees. Check them out.

Charlie Brown ALL Growed-Up

I like to imagine Charlie Brown as a 28 year old living in his parents' basement and dressing up like a medieval warrior to play Dungeons and Dragons. That is, at least, when he's not actually slaying kite-eating trees.

I have one or two more Charlie Brown comics in mind. I want to make them, but I'm afraid people think I'm running out of ideas when I do a string of related comics like this. Oh well, better they exist than to never let them see the light of day, right?

Inter-Dimensional Time Rifts

Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters

Every once and awhile, a movie comes along that blows my mind. Mishima is one of those movies that shames me for having not already known of its existence. Produced by Francis Ford Coppola and George Lucas, and directed by Paul Shrader in 1985, the movie is shot with breathtaking cinematography and a mix of on-location and highly stylized sets.

The movie is structured with several interwoven styles. Black and white sections retell the rise of the supremely nationalistic Japanese writer and artist Mishima, while "present-day" color sequences follow his final moments. Meanwhile, Mishima's life is interrupted by amazingly beautiful stage recreations of some of his famous novels. This juxtaposition begs the viewer to draw parallels between Mishima's own life and the life of his fictional characters.

This movie a stunning feast for the eyes and Philip Glass's score only adds another layer of mysterious profundity. Find yourself a copy of this Criterion Collection film and savor the awesome, perhaps unmatched, artistic craft on display.
