Yeah...me again.
My art book, "DEBRIS: The Art of AP. Furtado", is now available for ordering at Indy Planet.
The pic on the right is just an example of some of the relics I've discovered, buried right next to the bodies. What was I thinking?
Here's the official blah, blah, blah:

Debris: The Art of AP. Furtado features work from over 20+ years working as a professional illustrator in the comic, gaming and freelance art worlds. It also features a special, never seen, 11 page `Tween comic as well as concept art, black and white, pencil, sequential and full page color illustrations.

Moebius Blog


This is one of the best resources for the works of Jean "Moebius" Giraud on the web. It seems to be updated almost daily, or anytime I make my way over there. If your a fan of Moebius then you'll find this fascinating. If you have no idea who the man is, then this would be the place to get a look at his magic. The blog is called "Quenched Consciousness." It also contains some mature themes. Not safe for work.

Awesome stuff!
Play Nice.

I'm Alive..and does anyone care?!

Hey there, Wizards and wenches. Apologies for not posting much these days. I'm busy, busy and very busy, on all sorts of things. My duties with Ka-Blam are keeping me very busy. I just wrapped up another freelance gig and have begun working on a comic project with a very cool writer which I hope to start talking about early next year. With all that going on, I've managed to break some child-labor laws to put together my first art book called, DEBRIS. The title is more appropriate than you know. In a way it will close a long chapter of my life and open another. It'll be around 124 pages and available sometime in January. I'll have more news when I know for sure.

I want to wish a Happy Holidays to my fellow wizards and anyone who wanders past our tower of pain.

Talk to ya' soon!
Play Nice,
Tony

Imagery From West World














Here are a few doodles and images I've done recently. Some are altered for a general audience, generally speaking.

Dragonrider



Hello ladies and gentlemen. Contrary to what you read in the paper I was not captured by mutant voodoo princesses, cooked in a stew of rosemary and thyme, and subsequently eaten by a grue. Instead, I've been holed up drawing comics and being completely antisocial.

I somehow managed to draw 74 comic strips in the past 4 months. By far my most productive phase. Trouble is most of 'em are dirty as hell so I can't share much here.

But I've turned over a new leaf. I'm wiping the slate. Cleansing the pallet. I can change, really I can! I'm working on a new project now and I'll start sharing some of it once I get the details hammered out.

Keep rocking.

RPG Cartoon

OK, so I've been away from the Tower of Ur for a while, sojourning in the wilderness and slaying beasts of varying descriptions. Now it's time to check in and display some of the fruits of my labors...

So here are some cartoons produced for Goodman Games to be included in a new set of RPG rules to accompany their 'Dungeon Crawl Classics' line. The brief here was to inject some of the same sort of humor that used to be in the 1st Edition AD&D rule books.

Octocrab!

This is just a little homage to the 50's horror comics and probably inspired by the recent rash of crappy movies on the Sy-Fy channel. I'm not including the soon to be cult favorite Sharktopus. That has it's own category of crappy and was just brilliant in its own way.

Sharktopus VS. Dinocroc. it's coming. I just know it.

Play nice!

Dungeon Minds!








Howdy doody, all! A few more Dungeon Minds strips for your entertainment.

The comic is going along nicely. I've been so focused on just doing it I've spent little time promoting it. If you visit the site you'll note that I've only posted through strip #10, yet I'm currently working on #33. I'm pretty far ahead of the curve, which is very cool. I'm basically testing myself here, trying to determine what the most reasonable update schedule is going to be. I'd love to do 3 per week, and so far I'm actually keeping up with that very well. But in the long run 2 might be more realistic.

Anyhows, if you like FRPG-themed humor comics with a buttload of T-n-A then this is for you.

The Dragon Door

Some adventure has led our hero into the deep woods of some mythical land. Was he seeking the Dragon Door or did he happen upon it? Therein lies the fun, I guess.

It's been a crazy couple of months here in my portion of the Wizard's of Ur tower. All things considered, not all of it sucked. I'm hoping to get my butt into gear and start making some comics again. Lots of ideas banging around between my ears. :)

Play Nice,
Tony

Vitazzio Arrives



Still cranking these out. The website is up and running, though not nearly as finished and polished as I want. But that'll come in time I guess.

Dungeon Minds - the comic for gentlegeeks!

Insomnia Doodle

Insomnia rears it's ugly head again. This is a result of the Book of Eli soundtrack and crickets. Somehow, I think I channeled a bit of Moebius. Make of it what you will.

I definitely need to get me some herbal medicine. Nature's candy, if you will.

Play Nice!

Legitimacy Board Game Video Review

Here's a nice little video demonstration & review of my boardgame Legitimacy:

Legitimacy Board Game Review

Dungeon Minds #17



The Dungeon Minds website is now live, though I'm still tweaking it. The image in the left sidebar is a placeholder until I get a gallery set up. I was planning to use ComicGallery because it's a cool script and easy to use. But I'm undecided.

I'm posting a strip a day for a week, then I'll slow it down and probably have a random schedule. I don't do "regular" very well, and this is for fun so fuck it.

I'm going to get the menubar fixed up with some buttons using the same font as the tagline "a comic for gentlegeeks". That font, Futura, is the closest thing I can find to the font used in the 1st Edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons manuals. Hypergeeks might pick up on that.

More Dungeon Minds





A smidge of nipplage in one of these, just in case you're squeamish about that sort of thing.

Since I appear to be on a roll knocking these out I went ahead and got the Dungeon Minds website placeholder up. I'm not sure when the actual website will go live but I'm in no particular hurry.

Fuck Me, Ray Bradbury

Dungeon Minds #16: Coffe Break



Still drawing these strips. Don't seem to have an end in sight, which is very cool.

So I'm tossing around ideas about what to do with them in the long run.

And there you have it. Nessa's dad, the first of the Seven Swordsmen, is missing. (But that's certainly not the whole story...) There's your basic set up for the rest of Season 2!

I think this is the episode where I nailed the female sneer.

Next week, the boys have a heart-to-heart about what should be done...

Dungeon Minds






Hey all!

No, I haven't been abducted by Alabama rebels and tortured in a shack. But I have been working on a new strip called Dungeon Minds. Some of these strips are rated R. Since I don't want to offend the gentle sensibilities of Wizards of Ur readers I'll only post the ones that could be called PG-13ish.

The premise of the series is pretty simple. It's FRPG humor with lots of T'n'A. Hey, a man can't help what he likes. And I'm having a great time with this stuff.

I don't know exactly what I'll do with it yet. Obviously I'll start posting them on my own site, but I'm not sure if that will be on www.bloodredcomics.com or a new site. I'm kind of waiting to see if this is sustainable. If its just a big batch of gags then that's cool, I'll post them up and move on. But if I continue to do these I think they deserve their own venue.

Anyway, enjoy.
