Philly Cartoonist Society fella, cartoonist and teacher Christian “Patch” Patchell worked with the DAVE School to adapt some of his characters into a CG short, “The Brothers Brimm.” Check it out below. More Patch at Monster Mondays and his website.
There are a handful of episodes on YouTube but user Koros84 has three episodes with pretty good quality video especially embedded here:
A good place to start, episode 11, in which you learn about the shiny pink guy’s internal anatomy:
Here is episode 7, in which the jealous battle for the yellow space cat’s attention between mouse and purple space-cat heats up:
An origin story of sorts is included in episode 1. It is a good thing they got rid of this dead-weight kid sooner or later after this episode:
Check it out Wren McDonald sent Meathaus a package with digital duplicator printed comics, sketchbook and postcard that reads:
“MEATHAUS is always an inspiration. Keep up the good work! ☺︎ -wren”
Thanks Wren. Please keep reading Meathaus websites and books even though it took four months to post you letter. It slipped through our tight set of protocols and methodologies, redundant fail-safes and back-up plans. After languishing in the P.O. box for a month I think it was in that pile over there for a few months. See, the P.O. box is the late-posting-guilt container. It allows letters to pile up there for a bit unseen before getting picked up and hitting the posting pile all at once. That way there isn’t a constant dribble of letters to Meathaus coming in, each one calling out to be read, fondled and appreciated almost always at inappropriate times. Some delays have occurred in timely posting.
But back to your package. Wren sent over PLANTR, What’s In Brick’s Bag, and Channel: a Wren McDonald Sketchbook. PLANTR is my favorite with delightful office scenes and plant-aliens. What’s In Brick’s Bag has a slice of life short story about Brick who lives in this crappy techno future that is really difficult to get around in but contains lots of consumer tech-gadgets that convert matter into different forms and can replicate replicated flowers. See more from Wren on his website and Tumblr where you can read and buy Brick’s Bag and also see a previous Meathaus post.

Sasha Taran sent Meathaus this postcard so you could check out her illustration work and that’s what this post is all about: sashataran.com checkitout.
“DEAR MEATHAUS – i love you! I NEED MORE COMICS! it’s boring in North Carolina. I sent you a zine that i just finished. I hope you like the pictures. I hope you have a great summer! –Victor
*ps–make tom herpich make more comics!”
What’s up Victor thanks for this zine and your letter. I am digging these clusters of marks you made into dense drawings that looks like bits of the natural world and I also like this chill floating skull guy on the cover. You never have to be bored in North Carolina again when you realize that Meathaus doesn’t really exist and it is just a concept constructed in your mind with vague ideas of what and how it could be to always be having fun partying and publishing comics in imagination land instead of just me sitting here in front of my computer at 5am in my night pants. And then take your new power of the knowledge of the cruel reality of the situation and use it to imagine an even better scenario wherein Tom puts out a weekly zine hand-delivered to your door, Brandon designs you the ultimate neck-tattoo of you as a walrus, Farel re-writes the Wrenchies to include you leading your own teenage gang of mutants, and the Hanuka Bros give you two free weeks of hot inking tips. And then live the dream.
