Thrilling Tales of the Downright Unusual
I've been working for the last several months on a project called Thrilling Tales of the Downright Unusual, and it's just (finally!) launched. Thrilling Tales is a series of (densely) illustrated and (lightly) interactive stories from the retro future that can be read in their entirety at the web site (for free!) or purchased as full color books (not for free!). There are also some free downloads like desktop wallpapers and screen savers and, for the moment, a single diversion in the site's Derange-O-Lab. That's the Pulp Sci-Fi Title-O-Tron, a random pulp science fiction title generator. The first Thrilling Tale is Trapped in the Tower of th

News from the Secret Laboratory
It’s been a busy Spring and Summer so far; but just about all the work I’ve been doing has been on my web sites, so there hasn’t been much to upload here.  Last year I spent about nine months on a very large project – so large that even those months barely scratched the surface of it – and this year I’ve been trying to undo some of the resulting neglect of my commercial ventures.  Since although I may be a shiftless layabout, I’m not a wealthy shiftless layabout. Late last week I got distracted from what I ought to have been doing by a program that generates height maps, for realistic 3D terrain, and

Postcard from Nova York
    It's just been nonstop, screwball comedy hijinx day and night here in the secret laboratory, if by "nonstop etc." you mean working constantly for months at a stretch on something so huge that even months of work don't make a dent in it.    It's my own fault, of course; last year I carried out a plan that was meant to give me lots of time to spend on a project of my own – after many years of day jobs in which I spent my time and mojo on Other People's Dreams, or possibly, on Other People's Schemes, or - most likely -on both.    So I shuffled through the stacks of stuff in the Idea Closet and what fell on me there was one of my ver

This may be insulting- how much would you charge for me to use your image on a coffee mug for personal use?
I have the "back off im doing science t shirt" but as a university professor really cant wear it to work.  But id love to have a large mug with that and another with grumpy visionary.

Many people would love these but mugs are our main expression:)

There's a far easier way to get one of those : shop.webomator.com/retropolis/…
I suspect you might find robot artwork from game Fallout 3,4 come close, although story line is roughly 60's.

YouTube has game play in realtime, is quite amazing.
The player has access to wrist controller & tracking device is very cool.
The floating robot that follows player, darn cool.

Today was such a lottery shot win as to how I discovered the site _
thrilling-tales.webomator.com/…

The T-shirt that's available you have on the site is a must have.

Fallout shares some of my influences - they're just getting them second hand from the fifties and sixties :). Glad you liked the Thrilling Tales!
Interesting FallOut tidbit.
As to Thrilling Tales site,, truly amazing.
The work and detail that went into key shop
print is fully appreciated.
Darn funny store quotes, up on the walls.
You know your hardware, 😉

just discovered your website, and now that you're on DA.. your beautiful creative entertaining gorgeous awesomazing work is absolutely mind-blowing! and i've only seen a few pages/illustrations of it! your skills as an illustrator-writer-webdesigner-entertainer are magnificient, i'm fresh out of compliments to address them.
if i could (which i don't since i have barely enough to feed myself & my big feline family), i'd be a totally addicted customer to your shop - but what i know, is that i will be addicted to your creations and your world(s), and pass the message! thank you for being who you are and doing what you do! :worship:
