In spending many late nights focused quietly on the weirdness of old books, comics and strange tomes of bestial lore, I find myself drawing these images as the world rests...uninterrupted and relaxed...Only the occasional sound of soft cat steps and muffled hobo arguments to add to the mood...these times drawing in the last couple months reminded me of when I was a teenager staying up late listening to depressing music and Looking at Fiend Folios and sketching mindflayers.. Moments of quiet reflection are fleeting in the adult world i live in now and it makes the times I get to draw that much better..I am putting out this 5 print set of Nostalgic beasts, demons and crawlers unknown, Inspired by the obscure art books I have collected as a small special print set celebrating weirdness,monsters and psychedelic art...only 30 sets of 5 silk screened mini prints ( 8.5 X 11) and a pair of chroma depth glasses to go with them. I wanted this to be a really special and limited set of detailed multi color prints that people could afford..one of the prints is even 6 colors! These prints would sell individually for $40! but you get five of them for $120! The Official Print cover tells you which of the run of the " Journey Of The Unmind- Dead Folk Arcana"  prints you got! They come with a protective folio cover emblazoned with the Critical Hit seal of quality!!! Printed by the one and only Curtis Readel! The same guy that printed my Space Biker and Ghoul King prints! This is a really cool collection of weirdness, sure to please your warped inner freak! There are only 30 available, They will not be reprinted! They go on sale on friday september 27th at Noon!

When Cop A Squat Toys hit me up about doing a run of these, I immediately saw the potential in such a weird, and what I would consider to be, traditional looking character in the vein of Battling Kaiju via Ultra Man and vintage Sci-Fi...It just looks cool to me...Then when Adam Saul told me that He could silk screen a header, I thought the project could really be special...well, then I decided to stay home one day and hang out with my cats ( The Clone seemed sad), and draw the header, I kinda just started expanding on what I wanted to do until I had drawn a big dissected version of the Semi Korosiya so you could see the inner workings of the THING! I then sent it to Adam and we decided it should be a print...so what started as a simple run of these bad boys turned into a whole production with a print and incredible silk screen header as well...I painted them up over at Kozik's with V color and gave them an evil Black Iron Golem look with gold armor nubs and an evil all seeing eye...Im really proud of the way this colaboration turned out and anyone who is lucky enough to get one will have the print, the header ( which is a print in itself), and the bad ass toy...there are 10 of them and will be $225...They will go on sale thursday august 29th at noon pacific, I will mail them out that day! available on http://shopcriticalhit.com/products/semi-korosiyra





Here's a lil vid of the header!

and here's a lil video of the silkscreen print!



Hey there true believers! It is time to blow your mind! I am releasing this immaculately psychedelic 8 color silk screen print on Monday AUGUST 5TH!!! At NOON Pacific time! 18X24 inch vision of epic savagery! It comes in 2 editions..one is the prints that were not damaged in their shipping to my studio, which will cost a $100 in an edition of 39. ( Thanks Fed Ex, ye transporters of ill repute!) The other version is one that has small corner damage to one or two of the corners of the print that will not be visible once framed for $80 in an edition of 61! The damage is minimal but i want you, The buyer to know before you buy it! Either way, Both print editions will come with:

One 8 color hand pulled silk screen Space Biker Print
One silk screen sticker pack of 10 stickers
One butcher kings book
One pair of chroma depth glasses to see the strange dimension of these things!

THE CHROMA DEPTH GLASSES WILL MAKE THE COSMIC BATTLE OF THE SPACE BIKER PRINT SPRING TO LIFE!
I am throwing in the butcher kings book because the glasses work on the images in there as well in making things 3-D

I made these as a visual transport back to those psyche fueled days of old...Blacklighte posters! Heavy Metal style! Reading old comics and smoking weed behind the bleachers at school! The 70's nostalgia of the past. knew my buddy Curtis Readel could give these the treatment I wanted on them so that when you hold them in your hands, they vibrate with energy and have a weight that demands attention! 8 colors is alot for one man to take on and he did it! This was a challenging project for him but he pulled it off beautifully! The chroma depth glasses only add to the experience by offering another dimension through which to view this monstrous print! It is printed on French's starch white 140 weight paper! HEAVY!

Introducing...BLART & HIS SON ABORT!!! By Skinner X Coma21

This incredible bootleg is from...another dimension!! Yeah! You heard me right! I GOT THIS TOY FROM ANOTHER FREAKIN DIMENSION! How did that happen you ask? Gather round and I'll tell you the tale! 

It all started the other day when I was hiking around this enchanted forest with Kristie. We were looking around to find some cool stuff we could make some cool, earthy scvulptures for our garden. You ever seen like a cool wine barrel with a trippy little handmade waterfall in it, maybe some cool driftwood and plants hangin from it and it makes you think you could totally make one yourself if you went on a hike with Kristie to find stuff in the forest to make your own wine barrel waterfall thing? Well then you understand why I was out there! I planned to impress her by being a cool hippie guy and make some wine barrel waterfalls! So anyway, we were out there hiking around looking for stuff when all of a sudden I saw this strange, shimmery light on the trail in front of us! It turned out to be a fucking crazy-ass hole in the space time continuum!! "Trip out!" I yelled as I veered toward the strange light. Kristie yelled back at me,"Babe! Get the hell away from that dimensional gateway! You'll hurt youself!" But it was too late, I had already started walking towards the strange doorway and when I got closer I could see another weird reality reveal itself throught the door! My mind was completely blown as I saw what appeared to be, some kind of nether world flea market! It was full of mutants and bizarre misshapen humanoids shuffling around and making flea market deals in a united cocaphony of sounds and deformed voices! A hellish flea market full of poverty stricken demons and blue collar trolls! I yelled out, "HEY KRISTIE!! THERE'S SOME COOL MUTANTS OVER HERE! COME CHECK 'EM OUT!" Kristie ran over just in time to see a strange little imp-man with a bent back and some shaggy rag clothes peering through the gateway door at me! He looked at me and we locked eyes! I felt frozen in time as he shambled towards me from the other side. I watched in my paralyzed state as he came closer, stopping just before the shimmering door between our two worlds. I watched him reach one of his straggly little arms behind his bent back and produce an ugly little toy! He passed the strange figure through through the dimensional door and into my hands. I looked down and in my hand was this BLART SIMPSON! I asked him, "What in god's name is this wretched horror," to which he croaked, "Blart is number one top TV boy on cartoon screen! Eat more shorts he say always and more about the cow and always Blart does drive Home-dad so lunacy! Always shake a neck! Bootleg Blart 5 of MoxIco world. I buy and you give me weed from Earth town." Wow! I thought! This dude must be drunk on some netherworld moon shine!! I made a mental note to get me some of that, but in the meantime I think he just asked me to trade him some weed for some Blart toys! I started to think...Man, I could sell these bootleg netherworld Bart Simpson toys to some toy dudes who like to collect these freakish kinds of things! I mean, if they like to collect earthy toys, then toys from some other world has gotta be cool too, right? So basically, instead of being a total sheister with these toys and keeping them all for myself, I am going to sell them to you guys for only a $100 a pop, because I need the money to buy some wine barrels for my trippy waterfall project, OK!!!? You guys didn't forget about that part of the story, did you? So anyways, as we started back from the old bent man and his strange mutant flea market we noticed the shimmery door start to fade away. We plan to go back soon, but I don't know if the shimmery door will ever manifest again...

Blart Simpson goes on sale FRIDAY, FEBRUARY at NOON! Here on my webstore!!
SOLD OUT!

Somewhere traversing outside of time, deep within wormholes of an unknown cosmos, a strange being walks...no he wanders!! Endlessly he wanders the halls of space and light. What odd murmurs exist within its shapeless mind? Or does it simply watch coldly with its ancient mind? What celestial ambition pushes it onward, ever traversing the palaces of the unknown? Unfazed and unfaltering in its quest...but a quest of what? To where? Does it know? Did it ever know, or does it just Wander...ever wandering....outside of time!

This project is in collaboration with David Healey who sculpted and created this resin piece. He is an incredible resin artisan who I will be collaborating again with this year so stay posted! This is David Healey's character Jin Baba, the Pakistani Boogeyman! I gave him a cosmic makeover...hope you like it!
