Brick Throwin’ Bastards In Blight’s NEW Comic Strip And Pretty Soon I Am Gonna Blow Up A Moose!

September 28, 2008

Howdy, three times, in a pumpkin patch,

I wrote a little poem for you:

“Ode to a pickle tree”

Bing bong boing,
Someone flip a coin,
I broke a slippery bone,
Last night on the phone,
Imply what you will,
Please delay the kill,
Then read the latest strip,
So I can take you on a trip.

Here it is, the bomb diggity, the shiznat, the craziest clown there ever was…

:::NEWS:::

Just to give my loyal friends and fans the heads up, my good friend Barry Mitchell (Scroogie the Clown from “A CLOWN CAROL”, everyone from “Intelligent Design-The Music Video” and formerly “The Polka Guy” from ABC World News Now) and I have collaborated again on a new video featuring everyone’s (least) favorite “politician”, Sarah Palin.  I am working on the post-production and animation as fast as I can so I can bring it to you as soon as possible.  I would like to get it to you in time for the vice presidential debate on Thursday, but I am not 100% sure that is realistic, but I will try.  That being said, you may receive a mid-week blog update from Blight Productions if it happens.

:::FUN FOUND VIDEO:::

I found a really amazing piece of video on Youtube I thought I would share featuring a badass juggling routine.  Check it out:

-Kris Kremo – Definitive Juggling – 1984-

Well, that’s about it for this week,

PREMIERE!! Blight the Clown in, “Not Everything is in Black & White” #1

September 22, 2008

Howdy folks,

I made a new comic strip,
just for you.
It’s all black and white,
there is no blue.
This is a new series,
I will make more than one.
A black and white Blight,
I hope you find it fun.

BLIGHT THE CLOWN

“NOT EVERYTHING IS IN BLACK & WHITE” #1

Well, an all new series if black and white Blight the Clown comic strips is upon us.  I hope you enjoy them.  For those of you that like the color ones, do not worry, they will be back.

So, for you all that don’t know yet, I just got a unicycle.  I started learning to ride this weekend.  It is a rather tricky task, but after watching this video of a guy riding his unicycle in the city, I feel a bit more inspired.  I am not saying I will EVER come close to doing what this guys does, but maybe I will actually be able to ride it more than 2 rotations before falling off.

Enjoy the week,
Blight the Clown

Blight feels the pressure in comic #21!

September 14, 2008

Well Howdy Folks,

Back flippin’ biscuits and jingle jangle spores,
Blight the Clown’s sleepy time and really loud snores,
I made a new comic and I finished just in time,
To post it in the blog after this little rhyme.

:::OTHER NEWS:::

In the spirit of helping promote the art community, here is a trailer for my friend Mario’s (AKA. MaRs Attack!!!) newest film.  Enjoy!

:::OTHER OTHER NEWS:::

As most of you know, promotion is the most difficult part of being an artist.  I can make stuff all day long, but if no one ever sees it, what’s the point, other than a bit of therapy for the soul.  The challenge as an artist is to make things that people are interested in.  I am not the best mind reader in the world, I have no idea what the world is interested in, so I make things that interest me and hope that it is enough.  I like to think that if I am interested in it, that someone else somewhere else in this great big ball of a planet might find it interesting as well.

In this current age of digital revolution, there are half a million ways to promote your work.  The key is to tap into the right ones.  I really have no idea what the right ones are, so I have tried my best to make some kind of connection with all the networking tools I have been able to access.   The best most reliable connection seems to be a direct email list, but I don’t like to send emails to folks that are not interested in my work; but how are they going to become interested in my work if they have never seen it?

Social networking.  I have tried to make profiles on every damn social networking site that seems worthwhile.  Although, it’s rather hard to figure out what sites are worthwhile and what sites are not.  For links to my various profiles on social networks please click here: BLIGHT PRODUCTIONS SOCIAL NETWORKS.

But I still believe that direct email is the best way to directly keep you informed, so if you are not signed up to the email list, or you know of a friend you think might be interested, please visit the site here :BLIGHT PRODUCTIONS, or send your friends a link to the site: http://www.blightproductions.com.  I got some really cool stuff in the works, so stay tuned.

Your pal,
Blight the Clown

Blight the Clown goes camping in comic strip #20!

September 8, 2008

Greetings and salutations my friendly fiddle faddles,

This week Blight the Clown spends a sleepless night at a random family style campground in:

:::Other News:::

Not a whole lot to post this week except the comic as I have been editing and compositing my latest clown movie.  It is a sweet romantic clown love story.  It’s been taking me a while, I hope it will be worth the wait.

I did however come across a pretty entertaining piece of video showcasing the rock band, “Rage Against the Machine” performing at the RNC.  They were apparently not allowed to play at a scheduled protest rally, so they grabbed a megaphone and rocked it acappella style.  Got to love a group that practices what they preach! Enjoy:

-Rage Against the Machine RNC – 09.02.08 (Performs Acappella in Crowd)-

That’s all for this week. Be sure to send a link for the website to all your friends, share the clown love.  Encourage all your friends to sign up to my mailing list.  Help promote your favorite clown comic.  Don’t be selfish and keep Blight all to yourself.  Take him to school for show and tell.  Be the talk of the town.  Be the first one in your town to bring Blight to the masses, you will be a hero!

Take care,
Blight the Clown
