I'm Jhonen Vasquez, and this is my story. Okay, it's just my Tumblr. I'm sorry I lied to you.
I just keep laughing.
Here’s a cropped version of my print for the #Sailormoon gallery show at Meltdown Comics this Saturday! I’m thinking of calling it “Inaccurate Episode One”? #meatballhead #meltdown
I’ve never watched sailor moon because I like myself too much, but I watched @cunch draw this on my cintiq and I think it’s pretty badass. The end.
EDIT: I can’t say I’ve never watched it because she had it on as reference and I caught maybe an episode’s worth of stuff and it was just shrill screaming and yelling nonstop! Who the hell would watch a cartoon of characters just screaming and yelling nonstop. Inconceivable!
Damn! I forgot to add the swollen, shiny man-lips!
comics fillerbunny cry for help
The signs all point to one thing - A new dose of Fillerbunny in stores is nigh, this week as a matter of fact, tomorrow even! This is the book nobody’s been waiting for, but everyone should own! Love Fillerbunny? You need this book! Hate Fillerbunny and everything else my name is attached to? You need this book so you can fuel your insane rants to nobody who wants to listen!
In case you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t been watching all the trailers in theaters and reading all the informative flyers taped to bricks being thrown through your windows while you sleep, this book collects every issue of Fillerbunny ever made, including a brand new issue 4 that’s not even in stores yet! That’s right, this book collects THE FUTURE. Issue 4 is really sad, guys. Maybe you shouldn’t get this book.
Aw, I’m just kidding with you. You HAVE to buy this book. if you don’t, everything i’ve worked for will be for nothing and I’ll just hate myself for even trying. Why would you do that to me? Seriously, what’s up?
There’s quite a bit of new material in here, not even counting the whole new issue, so here’s just a list of the guests that did pages: Bryan Konietzko, Edmund McMillen, J.R. Goldberg, Tyler Hutchison, Frank and Becky, Pendleton Ward, Alex Pardee and Aaron Alexovich. One of them did a drawing that actually upsets me.
So yeah, go to your local comics purchasing establishment tomorrow, demand the book. I’d be pretty happy if you were all responsible for why they sell out of copies in a single day. No pressure, but if that doesn’t happen, I’m probably gonna just kill myself, man. I’ll do it. I won’t actually do it but I’ll talk about it all day.
ZIM GIR Minimoose sd comicon 2014
Spotted this on Rotten Tomatoes’ collection of SD Comic-Con 2014 photos! I’m gonna assume these three (I like imagining there was a baby in the Minimoose) died of the relentless heat. Fun though!
Making people who want sketches draw what they want me to draw first. Keeps it fun for me, and stressful for them!
"Can you draw me a-"
“A mooseball with tank treads, right? Here ya go.”

"Hey, can you do me a drawing of GIR scaring Squee?"
“Huh. Here’s what you’re getting…”
animation Very Important House Disney JR Goldberg
Some of you may have seen this announcement in The Hollywood Reporter about Disney’s new TV animation deals in which my pilot was mentioned, yeah?
Just wanted to clarify that cunch (J.R Goldberg), did indeed do character designs, but she’s also co-creator on the show. The article made it look like she was just on the design side. She deserves more credit there, and in the case of the show going horribly wrong, I want to know I can blame her, ya know?
Also, Frolie’s 12 years old and not the 11 listed in the article!

Crapping around on the Cintiq, wanted to do a new header image for my Twitter profile. This happened.
You know what’s slightly better than cutting your tongue open and repeatedly re-opening it when ice sticks to it? Being asked by JHONEN V to contribute a comic for his new Filler Bunny Collection. The pressure was almost too much considering how much I have loved Jhonen’s world since I was a wee little 760 year old vampire, but the four hour deadline he have me really proved useful.
Almost 20 years ago I discovered Jhonen’s comics in the back of Carpe Noctem magazine and have followed his adventures through road trip journals, the best comics ever, cartoons and even mysterious Sasquatch pregnancies. When I have forced it to squeal, my sense of humor has always described itself to me as a mixture of Steven Wright, Jhonen V & Biz Markie. And because of that, and because Jhonen proved that there is an actual amazing and inspirational market for absurdity, I thank him for letting me draw the insides of butts for him as an adult. The New Filler Bunny book will be out soon.
Fillerbunny comics so tired
S’funny how FIllerbunny is one of the shittiest, fastest things I do, and yet the books always leave me feeling utterly annihilated as if I’ve made something of quality.
For the curious, this collects all the there previously released issues plus a fourth issue that seemed to just happen while putting this thing together.
There are guest pages and comics by friends and enemies like Bryan Konietzko, J.R. Goldberg, Pendleton Ward, Edmund McMillen, Alex Pardee, Aaron Alexovich, Tyler J. Hutchison, and Frank and Becky. S’cool I think.
Should be out in the later half of July unless something goes bad, but when does bad ever happen?
More when this thing’s nigh.
Sweet god of sad rabbits… I think I just finished all the work on the Fillerbunny collection. I die now…

Fillerbunny comics hard days
Fillerbunny would like to thank anyone who hasn’t made his life any worse than it already needs to be. Sometimes nothings are nicer than shitty somethings.
sometimes the anti-stick glove I use when on my cintiq makes me feel like a cenobite. Other times it makes me do Doctor Strange hands.

The upcoming Fillerbunny collection features a dramatic 3 page story by Edmund McMillen! He classes it up a bit.
Fillerbunny comics cake
Catching up on extra material (a whole new book’s worth) for the Fillerbunny collection due out this July. Been kinda unfriendly times for working but the bunny must go on, as they say.
Fillerbunny comics mustache pants
So I’m collecting the previous FILLERBUNNY comics into a single book and doing pretty much a single issue’s worth of new comics. That’s an additional fifteen whole pages of slight effort!
Happy Mother’s Day, Mom. I’m sorry that bitch blew you out the airlock.
SQUEE! Short character design meeting with jpolgar1 yielded some fine results. Everyone is blocks now.
Black Books large arse arse value
This is my favorite quote from Black Books. I think I dated the same girl.
Can’t help but be bummed my pitch for the Ronald McDonald makeover didn’t get used. They thought his tripod of french fry appendages was going to upset people. Whatever.

Bravest Warriors animation youtube
Saw my buddy (greatest enemy), and ever sleepy show runner of Bravest Warriors, Breehn Burns had posted a still from the episode I wrote, The ‘Puppetyville Horror’. Maybe that’s NOT a still, actually, considering the entire script consists of “And then Beth stands in the snow in that same pose for all eternity.”
The episode goes up in the later part of this current season. Dunno exactly when.
@cunch drew some ladies and this is the one I nabbed! It’s mine now, okay? There’s more up at her shop! http://cunchstop.mysupadupa.com
