Ben: The Monster At The End Of This Book http://ift.tt/1zmvaTZ

I was recently asked (months ago) to participate in a gallery show at Bay Arts by my friend Erin Schechtman.  The general theme of the “Old Friends Gallery Show” was to reference a beloved childrens’ book.  I immediately knew I wanted to do something for Grover in The Monster At The End Of This Book, I just had no idea what.  Having planned on doing it at the last minute, like all of my projects, I had plenty of time to ponder my approach.  The more I “pondered” the less I thought about the story and more about the title.  ”Monster At The End Of This Book” taken out of context sounds much more like a classic pulp novel than a children’s book. 
And that’s sort of what happened.  Here is my Pulp/Film Noire version of Sesame Street.  Work in Progress at my personal site : NeedYourDisease.com

It gets better—the guy is deaf, and he taught his cat the sign for “food.” So the cat’s not just saying “put that in my mouth,” it’s actually signing

Best thing I have ever seen I love cats so much omg

Your cute cat of the day

Blimey! Speechless!

Not only that, but if you notice at the beginning, the cat *gets the man’s attention* as any person who wanted to talk to a deaf/hoh individual would (well, and vice versa IME). I’ve done sign since I was 5, and generally, w/o eye contact initially, you wave a hand or lightly touch the arm (if that’s ok with the person you’re trying to converse with, of course). Generally, adult cats meow mostly to humans, but this cat has figured out that’s not going to work and has adapted. Animal companions! They are INCREDIBLE.

What a smart, sweet kitty!

this is the cutest thing ever omg

Gail Simone is on a tear on twitter this morning.

I said some stuff.

In case you missed it: The “She-Hulk” thing

"So what happens when the audience, male and female, is smarter than the people making the product? They outgrow it."

Directly relevant: DC’s cancellation of nearly 52 of its New 52 titles:

Comics fandom is becoming larger and more diverse all the time, and DC doesn’t seem able or willing to expand the diversity of its own lineup accordingly.”

Love Gail!

This is relevant.

Oh man…need some aloe for that burn?

A brief word on a short hiatus...

We have had a regular video to post every month for a couple years now. The last month or two we’ve missed that due to some live shows, delayed filming, and personal life stuff. BUT Charles (our builder) is moving soon, and will have a new puppet workshop where many more fantastic Death By Puppets…
