Wow,I'm really expressing myself
Artist | Traditional Art
United States
I am the cartoonist responsible for Internet abominations Witchprickers, Guttersnipe, and Murry Purry Fresh and Furry. My work has appeared in Furrlough, Genus, Golddigger, and Monsterhaus. My first graphic novel, Malleus Maleficarum, is now available from SLG Publishing. I'm also the illustrator for Misunderstanding Comics.

I also cohost the podcast SHOW with Aurelina. We talk about fat fetishism, furry abominations, weird websites, crazy old movies from the thrift store, and other hilarious horrors that you should know about.

I like fat girls and sometimes I draw them. You can see more of that in the Muffintop collection available now!

An Urchin Everyday: Tommy Shellshock by Galago
An Urchin Everyday: Tommy Shellshock

Tommy Shellshock wears a photograph of his long lost mother around his neck to remind him, at all times, of what he lost.  Such behavior is considered blasphemous by the Church of the Unseen Mother Who Watches Over Us All, as is any recognition of earthly mothers.*  As such Tommy Shellshock remains on the church’s list of Accursed, even after his disappearance in 1926 after a visit by the Dapper Lads.  Low-level acolytes of the church often express confusion as to why Tommy’s name was never removed to the list.  He is Reinhoffer-Ootz type #6B: Twilighter.

Rumors abound that Tommy Shellshock may still adhere to the cult of Rapscallius. Rapscallius worship began to decline in Garbagetown urchins in the late 1920s, following the supposed death of Rapscallius — the announcement of Rapscallius’ death is usually attributed to the Straggletag, but there’s no evidence that the Straggletag was actually involved — and the later public apostacy of Lil’ Ragamuffin in smashing her Rapscallius talisman possum skull.

The Reinhoffer-Ootz urchin classification system was named for its developers Gisela Reinhoffer (1810-1873), esteemed professor emeritus of Urchinological Studies at the University of Jinantonic  and Matrushka Ootz (1843-1901), graduate student, who first used it in their landmark survey of Dickensian mudlarks in Rats’ Castle, London (1868).  The Rats’ Castle survey has been criticized by subsequent urchin scholars as “incomplete”, “inaccurate” and “unverifiable as Reinhoffer and Ootz relied extensively on a single source for their description of urchin society, a noseless albino urchin named Pale Vivian, whose elaborate tales of high urchinry have never been corroborated.” (Rats’ Castle Reconsidered, D.E. Holt (1954) ). Even so, it remains our best resource for understanding the history of high urchinry.

That’s it! NO MORE URCHINS. Thank goodness, that was harder work than I’d expected.  And hard work is something I try to avoid!

 

*The church schismed in 1917 over the question of whether recognition of earthly fathers is acceptable.

An Urchin Everyday: Lady X, A Painted Jezebel by Galago
An Urchin Everyday: Lady X, A Painted Jezebel

Lady X, A Painted Jezebel was a renowned war chief for the Weepers, right hand to Sir Reginald Burlap.  Lady X, A Painted Jezebel began life as a barnacle, but ran away from home at the age of 2 to join the Weepers after her governess tried to feed her cod liver oil.  She was instrumental in the rise of the Weepers, helping to transform that swarm into one of the dominant political factions in the ever-shifting Garbagetown urchin landscape.  She openly defied the Garbage Council in 1926, when Urchin Judges called for a cease punch between the Skunktop Highrollers and the Deadly Mambos, winning the attention of the Weepers swarmlord.  Lady X, A Painted Jezebel is one of only three identified members of the Spanish Conundrum, the conspiracy that dethroned Swarmlord Pizza Dan the Pizza Man of the Broken Noses.  She is Reinhoffer-Ootz type #34D: Deep Biter.

An Urchin Everyday: Skillet by Galago
An Urchin Everyday: Skillet

Pretender to the throne of the Lost Urchin Emperor, First Born of the Unseen Mother Who Watches Over Us All.  According to church doctrine, the first son of the Unseen Mother Who Watches Over Us All was destined to be the ruler of all urchins.  The idea of a single predestined ruler of all urchins is controversial among swarmlings who bristle at the idea of any one urchin autocrat and swarmlords who don’t like to acquiesce to any higher authority, but is embraced by most hardcore adherents of the faith.  Skillet arrived in Garbagetown from parts unknown and quickly charmed the major church authorities and Garbage Council Judges with stories of the world outside, but was later discredited after failing the Test of the Thunderbucket.  Skillet later faded from public view and was not mentioned in urchin records after 1927.  She is Reinhoffer-Ootz type #82B: Nipper.

Naturally this happens when I'm away from my computer for a week, so I look like a real johnny-come-lately jerk for not noticing this before!  The awesome master of sexy-slut-ladies-and-Nazi-ponies :iconcurtsibling: did this amazing picture of an adult Bogmoggy... where you can see she's dealt with Becky and Nate in her own way! XD  I don't normally think slender ladies are all that exciting, but I might make an exception for the way Curt draws them!
