I just found a small stash of these. Check out this gocco print James and I did back around, oh, I don’t know maybe 2004 plus or minus a couple years. I can remember the “Meathaus Meltdown” show (oh man it was 2003 I’ve been saying 2004 for 10 years) we did at Meltdown was around Valentines Day 2003, and we collaborated on another kick-butt poster for that. But I can’t place when we did this small Gocco thing. I think we took these to A.P.E. with us the one year Celia, James, Jay, Jim, Farel and myself were all there for some reason. Good times. Never mind I found it on this very blog, wow. 2006 archive, month of April. Anyway, remember when Print Gocco was all the rage for a bit there? All the comics people found out about them over the course of a few years and everyone was mail-ordering these things from Japan. That was before everyone got digital duplicator machines. Yeah the Print Gocco was a great tiny home print-making unit, but they stopped making the flash bulbs and photo-sensitive screens I think. One of those things. I probably have enough for one or two more screens. You can probably guess who drew what on this print.
For all you Tumblr peoples we now have a sort-of mirror over there feeding these delicious post nuggets right into your dashboard. You asked for it (two people), you got it. This was made possible by this super Jetpack plugin from WordPress which is also allowing these posts to automatically get publicized to Twitter too. I don’t know. Maybe that’s annoying? Well anyway. A few of you wanted the meat feed on Tumblr. So here is where you find it:
There is still no easy way to import the existing meathaus.com blog’s archive into Tumblr with out a bunch of programming crap so you can forget about seeing all the years of old posts over there, but they still are all still here for your browsing pleasure.
Once again, I must warn you out of NSFWness to try to remember not to accidentally go to plain old meathaus dot tumblr because that is someone’s “spank bank” of beefy nude dudes, unless that is what you are after. We are meathauscomics dot tumblr dot com.
And do you remember when meathaus.com was pre-blog, pre-2006? We’ve had a website since 2000 or so. We had a load of layouts we went through including some fun Flash ones in the early 2000s. I found this weird and cool layout file above that is similar to what Meathaus looked like at one point when I taught myself some basic PHP to go along with my HTML and CSS “knowledge” and hacked together a whole website with a backend for each of our members so they could update their own comics and pages and bios and stuff. I was so excited about it until a bunch of people just installed loads of backdoors and bank phishing scams on our server. Bunch of ruiners. Just because I didn’t bother to learn anything about security too. Oh well.
Good ol’ Farel Dalrymple has been a veritable web slinger these days, posting new work and thoughts on his site. In his latest entry, he gives a little insight into some of the inspirations behind his work for the Image series Prophet, and plugs a podcast or two. Additionally, Farel is awfully good at drawing dudes in cool-looking space suits.
