I'M STOKED THERE'S SOME NEW AIR BEING BLOWN OUT OF THE DUCK EATING BOWELS OF THIS BLOG. I TRIED TO QUIT THIS BLOG YEARS AGO, BUT WAS TALKED INTO JOINING BACK UP & NOW I FEEL THAT EATEN BY DUCKS WILL WADDLE ALONG AS LONG AS THIS PARTICULAR BLOG FORMAT DOES. I THOUGHT I'D GIVE YOU AN UPDATE & A SCENE REPORT. ANYHOW, HELLO, I'M SEAN AABERG, EDITOR OF PORK MAGAZINE. I'M AN ORIGINAL CONTRIBUTOR TO EATEN BY DUCKS & NOW HAVE A WEIRDO ART MAGAZINE WITH A 35,000 ISSUE CIRCULATION. PORK IS ON ITS THIRD YEAR & IS JUST GETTING STRONGER. WE'RE CURRENTLY OPERATING OUT OF PORKLAND, OREGON WHICH IS GOING QUITE WELL. I JUST HELPED ORGANIZE & TABLED AT A NEW ART, DESIGN, COMICS & ILLUSTRATION SHOW HERE CALLED LINEWORK NW, WHICH FEATURED A GREAT SELECTION OF TALENT, MOST OF WHICH IS FROM THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST. THEY GOT JIM WOODRING & MICHAEL DEFORGE AS SPECIAL GUESTS. JIM WOODRING & HIS WIFE BOTH CAME UP TO ME TO SAY THEY WERE FANS OF PORK, WHICH WAS A GREAT WAY TO START THE EVENT. THE CRAZY ARTIST SKINNER WAS ALSO UP HERE DOING A CTHULHU MURAL ON OUR BUDDIE'S SIZZLE PIE'S EASTERN LOCATION.

















HE GAVE ME & KATIE A MAGIC RICE CRISPIE TREAT & I WAS UNABLE TO DO MUCH FOR THE REST OF THE DAY. WE LIVE IN A FUNKY PART OF PORKLAND JUST OUTSIDE OF THE FOSTER/POWELL TRIANGLE WHICH IS HOME TO A HOST OF FUCKED UP CARTOONISTS: BOBBY MADNESS, TIM ROOT, TIM GOODYEAR, CHRIS CILLA, JACK SNAKEBOMB & ANDREW SCULLY ARE JUST THE ONES I KNOW ABOUT. MY NEIGHBORHOOD IS THE "ASIAN TOWN" OF PORTLAND WHERE LOTS OF CHINESE & VIETNAMESE PEOPLE LIVE, THERE ARE LOTS OF RUSSIANS & NO YUPPIES AS WELL. IT'S A COOL PLACE TO RAISE OUR THREE SONS, THEY JUST HAVE TO BEWARE OF SYRINGES & PIT BULLS. PORK/GOBLINKO HAS GROWN AT A METEORIC RATE, WE'VE GOT A LARGE MAIL-ORDER CALLED "THE PORK SHOP" THAT IS TAKING OVER OUR LIVES. WE'RE OPENING UP A PHYSICAL PORK SHOP IN A PUNK BOUTIQUE "NAKED CITY" THIS COMING WEEK, I'M BEYOND STOKED.

Drawings burst into tattoos!



Cristiano Ferreira (Portland, OR, United States) aka Vinc†ure (https://soundcloud.com/vincture) is getting sleeve with my tattoo design! Can't wait to see it finished. We met at Satta Outside Festival'13, drank warm vodka in the morning at the hotel we all stayed at with other musicians from Sha: TRI :Ah's stage, survived the storm during the festival and also he never complained about that food poisoning he got after trying some local food. 
Great man!

Bosch and the lower class



A sketch for yet another page of my biographical comic on Jheronimus Bosch. Here, our man gets in touch with the lower class. This composition was somewhat inspired by The temptations of Saint Anthony by his contemporary (and influence!) Martin Schoengauer, and a painting that is lost but known by way of a copy as tapestry, "A Saint leaves town" with sports scores of crippled beggars.
It should be noted that Bosch was probably not a rich man. He owned a house (through the marriage to a merchant's daughter) on the markt of 's Hertogenbosch and it is established in archives that belonged to the class who had to pay the heaviest taxes. Yet after taxes and investments in working materials, he might not have been left with that much. Artists were seen as artisans and the prices were fixed as the guild code commended. Only big stars like the brothers Van Eyck of Albrecht Duerer rose above that. I don't think it was the case with Bosch. His city was on the periphery of Burgundy. A thriving city, but without a court, bishop or university and with not too much of a cultural life, compared to let's say Flanders at that time. On the other hand, that relative isolation may have made him to be one of the most original artists of all time.
