Comic Artists Discuss The Weirdest Drawing Requests They've Received

Illustrators get used to receiving requests for drawings, especially as they develop their skills around friends and family members who feel requests are the best way to encourage a budding artist.

But those encouraging folks don't ask the artist to draw sick and twisted scenes featuring pop culture characters in sexual and/or gratuitously violent situations, at least not in public.

However, any artist who has worked the fan con circuit, sold their artwork online or taken commissions knows there are sick people out there looking for an artist to draw the stuff of nightmares.

Tom Fowler, artist/writer for Rick and Morty, was asked to draw a gross scene featuring Sauron, the Pterodactyl man from the Savage Lands, hypnotizing a teenage Storm into becoming his sex slave, akin to this panel:

Tom drew up a much tamer version for that weirdo, stating "I'd robbed this creep of his boner, and that's the real satisfaction that a cartoonist should feel".

Believe it or not the requests aren't always sexual- Tristan Jones, artist from ALIENS: Defiance, one got this request:

There was this guy that asked me to draw him, which is usually an immediate no from me on the spot at conventions, but as Jack Skellington (whatever that meant, I assumed it meant drawing Jack slightly heavier set and with this dude's hair) as a Ghostbuster, busting the ghost of his mother (who he had a photo of) from Jack's reindeer sleigh.

But then he talks about a different request which was racy to say the least...why, perverts, WHY?

Instant Big Man on Campus

Vinny Forte is one of many students in an organic chemistry lecture class that just began at Ohio State University. Dr. Christopher Callam opens the class every year with a demonstration that includes a stunt. He throws a paper wad into the balcony and challenges a student to throw it into a waste paper bin on the stage.

“We are using the ball to help understand acid base chemistry to understand proton donors and proton acceptors, Callam said. “The student can then try to make a basket to earn 100% on the first quiz.”

Not just the student, but the entire class would get 100% on the first quiz if he makes the shot. No pressure.

Rachel Brown caught footage of the miracle. What’s even more amazing is that this isn’t the first time it’s happened. It’s the second year in a row!

“The first ten years I did it no one was very close,” Callam said. “The last two years the shots have been epic and have gone in. I just randomly throw the ball up to the balcony and whoever grabs it is the ‘proton acceptor’ or Lewis base and I make the horrible and classic joke that ‘I just made an acid of myself.'”

“When the student made the shot last year no one had a video of it because no one thought it would go in. This year I told them we had to live up to last year making the shot so get your phones out. The student who made it ‘Vinny’ had his named chanted for several minutes after he made it. Not your normal day in Ochem.”

Way to go, Vinny! The entire class is eligible for a score of 100 on the first quiz, but they still have to show up that day to get it. -via Digg

Twelve Painfully Obvious Facts Confirmed By Science

Have you ever stated a fact which you felt was painfully obvious only to have somebody ask what you're talking about or, even worse, dispute the validity of your claim?

These people clearly missed an important day of mental development if they think an obvious fact, like pigs love mud or cereal tastes better with milk, could possibly be disproven after all these years.

How are we supposed to deal with these infuriatingly ignorant people?

By letting members of the scientific community tell them what's what, because even deniers of the obvious can't ignore or dispute facts when they're presented by scientifical types.

So next time somebody argues high heels don't hurt our feet, guys don't stare at boobs or overeating doesn't make you fat, citing something they read on the internet as proof, you'll have the scientific proof to shut them up!

The Top 10 Harley Davidson Motorcycles of All-Time

It’s not surprising that a 113-year-old vehicle company that’s still going strong has a huge catalog of models that includes all shapes, sizes, and specifications. Harley-Davidson has a wide range of motorcycle models to select from, and if you are lucky enough to find a really old one, you’ve found something special.

The 1915 11F brought the motorcycling world to a completely new level. It was the first Harley motorbike with a three-speed transmission, as well as an automatic oiler and gigantic intake valves that allowed it to spit out a boisterous 11hp. It even came with a detachable nighttime service light. While this bad boy might be outdated today, it served an important role in the foundation of Harley Davidson motorbikes. It revolutionized the manufacture of motorcycles and showed that comfort can be combined with style and performance.

The company offers quite a few current treasures, too. Take a tour through the best of Harley-Davidson with a list of their best models at Money Inc.

Guy Turns Keurig Coffee Machine Into Bionic Hand

People often see Keurig coffee machines as a good purchase while at the store only to find the overpriced and underwhelming Keurig isn't as useful as a standard coffee machine.

So what's a jittery MacGyver to do when they discover their Keurig machine is a disappointment?

Take that Keurig apart and turn it into something far more useful, like a bionic hand.

(YouTube Link)

Evan Booth of Terminal Cornucopia spent nearly 200 hours turning a Keurig K350, a 12v power supply and various adhesives into Hedberg the bionic hand.

It's cool looking, but can it make a decent cup of coffee?

Bizarre String Theories

Neatorama is proud to bring you a guest post from Ernie Smith, the editor of Tedium, a twice-weekly newsletter that hunts for the end of the long tail. In another life, he ran ShortFormBlog.

Most guitarists don’t tend to think it’s a good idea to put foreign objects on their prized rock instruments. But some do, and they make the craziest music.

Of the many fascinating experiments on the internet these days involving red hot nickel balls, my personal favorite is this one, involving two guitars. This clip, apparently inspired by nickel-ball innovator Matthew Neuland’s uncle, at first attempted to show whether a fiery nickel ball would put the guitar out of tune. Then Neuland used the nickel ball to destroy the strings. It’s far from the first example of someone messing with guitar strings just to see what might happen—in fact, there’s something of a whole subgenre of guitar playing based on the concept of modifying or breaking guitars in unusual ways. Today, we dig into the surprising beauty of prepared guitars.

Early Experiments

“I was sort of working on an art project. I had my guitar with me and a lot of materials were scattered around. It was that peanut-butter-and-chocolate moment, where these two things came together.”

   — Experimental guitarist Janet Feder, discussing with Premier Guitar how she fell into the process of preparing her instruments, by putting different objects onto the strings to see how they would change the tenor of the sound the device would make. At the time Feder came up with the idea roughly two decades ago, she wasn’t aware of many other people doing the same thing, although plenty of experimenters were out there. Since then, she’s pretty much owned the approach—check out her performance of “I Hear Voices” to get an idea of how the tiny objects she puts on the guitar help to give her songs additional texture and percussion.

Gamer Crest - The Crest Of Champions

Gamer Crest by Cory Freeman Design

Gamers are a proud breed, and when they meet one another in the wild and start to discuss games it immediately becomes clear that these gamers belong to the same clan. So why don't they have a royal crest to call their own? They have enough kingdoms, heroes, villains, creatures and support characters to fill ten planets, and their imagination allows them to build worlds full of wonder at will.

So it seems the gamer's lack of a royal crest is an oversight which has been remedied by talented artist and lover of game Cory Freeman Design and his Gamer Crest t-shirt design. Now gamers can declare their allegiance to gamedom and show their fellow gamers they're part of a royal kingdom where they can unite in board, tabletop and video brotherhood!

This Cat Has Deep Thoughts and Serious Concerns

Herman the Cat is a little guy with big eyes and a deep soul. At least, he certainly seems to think a lot more about important matters than other kitties. Just here he seems to be wondering whether it's worth loving anyone if they're only going to die or stop loving you eventually.

And here he seems to have realized what hot dogs are really made of.

Of course, sometimes he does relax that big brain of his -and then he looks like one chill little kitty.

Take My Advice

Some sage words of counsel from the advice books of yesteryear, courtesy of Uncle John’s Factastic Bathroom Reader.


“Don’t buy cigars from mysterious-looking foreigners, who say they have just done a neat little job of smuggling from Havana, and are willing to let you in on a good thing. They may even flatter you by telling you that you look trustworthy. They really mean that you look easy. It’s your move.”

—The College Freshman’s Don’t Book (1910)


“There always are and always will be children to be taken care of. There is no way in which a girl can help her country better than by fitting herself to undertake the care of children.”

—Official Handbook of the Girl Scouts (1925)


“Kill a mad dog at once. Wrap a handkerchief around your hand to prevent the dog’s teeth from entering the flesh and grasp a club of some kind. If you can stop the dog with a stick you should hit him hard over the head with it, or kick him under the jaw. A handkerchief held in front of you in your outstretched hands will generally cause the dog to stop to paw it before he attempts to bite you. This will give you an opportunity to kick him under the lower jaw. Another way suggested is to wrap a coat around the left arm and let the dog bite it; then with the other hand seize the dog’s throat and choke him.”

—The Boy Scout’s Handbook (1911)

Guy Secretly Grows Cannabis In Award Winning Town Gardens For Over 18 Years

Even though people are finally coming around to the idea of legalizing marijuana it is still highly illegal to possess or grow in many states and countries.

In the UK growing weed can get you five to fourteen years in prison, but for one British man, who legally changed his name to Free Cannabis in 1998, the reward is worth the risk.

He believes ganja is a medicinal herb that should be free for all, so he has been dropping seeds in the award winning public flower displays outside his shop "Hemp" in Glastonbury in Somerset for the last 18 years.

The plants have been watered by the city council and cultivated by Free for nearly two decades, which tells me two things- the city's law enforcement is obviously not very familiar with pot, and there obviously aren't any stoners in that town!

Summer is Over

Like Mama always said, the end of one phase is just the beginning of another. Don’t be sad about the end of summer, because autumn has so much to offer: brightly-colored foliage, cooler temperatures, pumpkin spice lattes, football games, apple cider, the end of the presidential campaign (whew), and Halloween! This optimistic look forward is brought to us by Sarah Andersen.

Determined Toddler Tries To Walk Stubborn Bulldog

Babies who love dogs are cute, but dogs who love and put up with babies are the cutest because they display a gentle side even when the little one is getting on their nerves.

Now take a stubborn baby lovin' bulldog and a toddler who's trying to be like mommy and daddy and take his four legged friend on a walk and you've got the makings of awwwww-dorability.

Food of the Gods

Let's talk about chocolate!

Chocolate comes from the cacao tree, Theobroma cacao. It’s a fitting name because theobroma comes from the Latin words for “food of the gods.”

Mayan emperors were often buried with jars of chocolate.

The average American consumes approximately 11.7 pounds of chocolate each year, but only 29 percent choose dark chocolate over milk.

Chocolate comes from the ivory-colored seeds of the cocoa tree’s fruit. Each melonlike fruit contains 20 to 50 seeds. About 400 seeds are required to make a pound of chocolate.

In 1974 a Pepperidge Farm employee in a Downington, Pennsylvania, plant died after falling into a vat of chocolate. His name: Robert C. Hershey.

The chemical theobromine is what makes chocolate fatal to pets— many animals don’t metabolize it well. Generally, the darker the chocolate, the more theobromine.

People who are depressed eat about 55 percent more chocolate than people who aren’t.

The Mars Candy Company is not named for the planet, but for its founder, Frank Mars.

Cocoa butter liquefies at a temperature slightly below 98.6 ° F, which is why it melts in your pocket. M&Ms were invented to provide sugar shells that had a higher melting temperature.

The Aztecs discovered and named chocolatl, but they used it as a beverage for its feel-good effects, not its flavor. In fact, chocolatl meant “bitter water.”

British candy maker Cadbury made the world’s first heart-shaped box of chocolates in 1861.

White chocolate has all the fat and sugar of chocolate, but none of the healthy flavonoids… and no solid cocoa. It does contain cocoa butter, though.

In 2004 interviewers asked British office workers if they would reveal their computer passwords in exchange for a chocolate bar— 71 percent said they would.

Cocoa usually starts losing flavor after about six months.

Disney Couples Who Probably Didn't Live Happily Ever After

Being part of a Disney couple looks like a whole new world of awesome, but we only get to see a small and triumphantly joyous part of their lives in the movies.

But things get real after the movie magic wears off and the main characters settle into their lives together, discovering they were caught up in the moment and may have made a horrible mistake.

Very few Disney couples seem like they're cut out for a long-term relationship if you really think about it, because they rarely have anything in common, culturally or otherwise.

But maybe they make it all work out because happily ever after? *shrug*

Paul Westover illustrated these childhood ruining moments that take place approximately six months to a year after the movie, moments that may be the perfect setup for a dramatic sequel.

Arnold Schwarzenegger's Son Recreates Terminator 2 Scene For Film's 25th Anniversary

The sequel Terminator 2: Judgement Day is a fan favorite that tends to outshine the original movie, and even though T2 came out 25 years ago it's still really fun to watch.

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of T2 Arnie's son Joseph Baena starred in a video made by his friend Ben Hess which recreates an iconic scene from the film- the "Bad To The Bone" scene.

New Hire Thoroughly Documents His First Week At Target

Starting a new job at a big retail store like Target can be confusing, nerve wracking and scary in many ways, but there's also enough stuff going on that you'll never be bored for long.

A Pokémon Anatomy Series For The Ages

Pokémon creator Satoshi Tajiri says the series was inspired by his childhood hobby of insect collecting, and since the series needed hundreds of character designs Pokémon inevitably included animals too.

But Satoshi probably didn't spent nearly as much time thinking about the inner workings of Pokémon as illustrator Christopher Stoll, who is now sharing his anatomical findings with the world.

Christopher's series PokéNatomy reveals not only the stuff that lies beneath the skin of each Pokémon species but also includes information on their diets, mating habits, social structure and more.

The present study investigates the emotion mediation hypothesis for correspondences between odor and music, testing whether the strength of odor-music matches for particular odors and musical selections can be predicted by the similarity of the emotional associations with the odors and music....

Why Get A Permit When You Can Hide Construction With Astroturf?

Sometimes you need to do a little construction on your property, but getting permits (especially if you live in a huge city like New York City) isn't always easy. So if you want to bypass the whole process, you can always try what one clever New Yorker did and just start an excavation in your backyard and use astroturf, patio furniture and some rocks to hide your digging.

No word on why, exactly homeowner Joseph Ienco was digging under his home, but at least an independent engineer has said the home itself is at no risk of collapsing -so that's something I guess.

A Hilariously Relatable Comic Series About Long-Term Relationships

Casual dating can be fun, seeing people six months at a time can give you the boyfriend or girlfriend experience without moving in or thoughts of marriage, but there's really nothing like settling in for the long haul with someone.

A long-term relationship means having a partner there when you get out of bed, after you poop, shower and shave, when you get home from work, when you start falling asleep on the couch...

Being in a long-term relationship is an unique experience, and comic artist Sarah Graley isn't afraid to show all the strange stuff that goes on while living that LTR life.

Her comic series Our Super Adventure is autobiographical and relatable and extremely lovable, guaranteed to give you those good feels unless you're a hater of love...actually, you might like them too!

Yellowstone Owes Its Early Success To Public Bear Feeding

We know that feeding wild bears is a dangerous thing to do, because bears will always want more. We may have felt sorry for Yogi and Boo Boo when they’d steal a pic-a-nic basket and Mr. Ranger Sir would take it back, but that scenario in Jellystone Park just followed what was happening in the real Yellowstone National Park. In the early years of the public park, park employees drew tourists by making sure they saw bears. And they did that by feeding the inn’s garbage to the bears -every night!

Today, it's strange to think of having to sell the idea of Yellowstone to anyone. But back when the park first opened, it needed to justify itself. Here was an enormous swath of prime Western land, set aside only for pleasure and recreation, paid for with American tax dollars. It sank or swam based on public opinion. For it to survive, people had to come, and they had to have the kind of good time they couldn't get anywhere else.

The park's superintendents were busy building infrastructure in the institution's first few decades, fighting poachers, and encouraging trains to come near enough that visitors could actually visit. But things improved, and when conservationist Horace Albright took the helm in 1919, he began turning human-animal interaction into a deliberate priority. The National Park Service, he said, had “a duty to present wildlife as a spectacle” for parkgoers.

The feeding of the bears eventually turned into a bear show with a circus-like atmosphere. Dozens of wild bears ate and cavorted close to huge crowds of people. Read about those shows at Atlas Obscura.

Five Times Batman: The Animated Series Made Us Feel Too Much

Batman: The Animated Series isn't the greatest adaptation of the Batman comics because it's faithful to the source material or because the storylines were so compelling- it's the greatest because it made us feel stuff.

The Beard Cycle Continues

Shaving can be so tedious, and often causes razor bumps and burn, so I shave as little as possible because it's just so much easier to constantly sport a beard.

But then I wake up one day and hate how that overgrown beard looks on my face so off it goes, leaving my cheeks smooth as a baby's bottom...which sucks for different reasons.

Anonymous Alcoholics - Here's To Wealth And Getting Wasted!

Anonymous Alcoholics by tomburns

When the shadowy organization known as Anonymous started wearing those Guy Fawkes masks most people found the look equal parts scary and silly, but when the upscale fellows who frequent Tanner's Tavern saw the look they instantly fell in love. The masks, you see, would allow them to drink in anonymity, so their fellow executives and all their underlings would have no idea who that well dressed man passed out in the corner really is. This anonymizing mask quickly became a hit with the alcoholic one percenters, and it wasn't long before the posh perverts and the deboinnaire drug addicts discovered its value as well. For you're only as good as your reputation, and with the power of Guy on their side they could still play boss during work hours while getting blind stinking drunk at night!

Show the world the secret to maintaining your untarnished reputation with this Anonymous Alcoholics t-shirt by tomburns, it explains a lot about why corporate morale never seems to sink as low as their actions...

And The Team Played On

Some high schools schools take their football really seriously. In November of 1965, Silliman Hall at Northfield Mount Herman School in Mount Hermon, Massachusetts, caught on fire during their game with Deerfield Academy. After a delay, the teams continued the game. But really, what else should they have done? Nateynate’s dad was at the game.

Believe it or not, my dad watched the whole thing. He was a Junior at Northfield Mount Herman when that happened. It is pretty much as you've suggested -- the firemen said it'd be better if everyone just stayed out of their way and didn't panic. So, back to the game they went. He keeps a coffee cup around that has that picture on it.

It was a heated competition illustrating a red-hot rivalry. Ultimately, Deerfield Academy won the game, 20-14. Silliman Hall was the school’s science building, and was actually quite a bit further from the game than this photograph would indicate. The fire was found to be caused by the electrical wiring, and the building was a complete loss. Read the whole story of that game at the New York Times. -via reddit
