Hand-Drawn Meme Mandala #2

The companion piece to Meme Mandala #1, which you can see here. The memes are all hand drawn (see my previous post) and the mandalas themselves have the color inverted from the first one. This will be made into a 3D lenticular for The Picture Of Everything.

You can see a representation of what that 3D will look like by CLICKING HERE.

More Foreign Dr. Strange Rarities!

Got a bunch of Doctor Strange comics, graphic novels and other things from all over the world in the last few weeks!

First up, from Spain, a set of graphic novels not published in America:

Another one from Spain reprints the Last Rites storyline in the Doctor Strange Sorcerer Supreme comic series. This has never been reprinted in America. The comics are available separately, but I tracked down the much rarer omnibus of the 8 individual issues:


This Marvel Team Up reprint from Spain has a painted cover. I love painted covers!

The final one from Spain is a super rare (but very professionally put together) fanzine devoted to Dr. Strange:

Not a comic, but here's a DVD copy of the Lion's Gate Dr. Strange Animated Movie from Mexico:

Here's two modern reprints from Germany:

Finally we go to France, with some great issues of Strange! The first reprints a ROM Spaceknight storyline and has another amazing painted cover:

Also with the same cover is a Strange Album, which collects 3 entire issues (including #172 pictured above)

Here's issue #210, which reprints Defenders #101:

And finally, the big one and a grail I've been looking for for years... A PENCE COPY OF STRANGE TALES #110! This is rarer than a 35 cent variant and extremely hard to find. It may be beat up, but I'm glad to own one!

There is a Big Bang happening every millisecond

Somewhere in space and time at this very moment, forces are aligning.
Eggs are being fertilized. Cells are multiplying. Codes are being replicated.
At this very moment somewhere else in space and time, life is ending.
Structures are eroding. Forms are decaying. Cells are dividing.
How many things are formed and how many things die at the same instant?

Schrödinger's Cat Cube #2: Top Cat and Tom Cat

This is the second in a series of 15 lenticular 3D cubes. Each cube will feature 2 cats. Each cat will get 3 sides of the cube. One side the cat will be alive, one side the cat will be dead, and one side the cat will transition between life and death. This is based on the Schrödinger's cat thought experiment and will feature some of the world's most famous cats. Depending on how you roll will determine their fate... and what cat you get!

Here's cube #2, featuring Top Cat and Tom Cat:
