E.T. & Shaft

Guinea Pig Theatre:  ET

This is my last week at my current job - which was the birthplace of Guinea Pig Theatre and it's production home, too. Tonight has been emotional, stressful, with opportunity to really pound out a great GPT with so many people flying around. This one's got pretty colors, though. Next GPT, hopefully, will be epic. Legendary, even.

Also, I've upgraded my home computer so fear of a GPT demise or hiatus isn't going to be an issue.

About my current job:
Before I started working at this job I hadn't efforted anything creative in eons - over the last four years I was introduced to Threadless and the internet t-shirt art world, became obsessed again with at least trying to draw something, anything, and to eventually waste a minute a week (1 minute, 6 seconds!) of my loyal readers time with the weekly GPT.

Four years ago I was just a dude that drank a lot, scamming bars for a little action.
Now I'm a dad and a husband with a vested interest in creating and doing something, even if it's just mildly entertaining - and that's thanks to this job.

Take care Old Job, I'll see you on the flip side.

To lighten the mood. here's Guinea Pig Theatre: Shaft

Rocky Horror Picture Show

Guinea Pig Theatre:  Rocky Horror Picture Show

Wife's suggestion.
She was quite positive that a guinea pig in drag would be frickin' hilarious.
Is she right? She's almost always right in all things - so I'm expecting quite a response to this.

She also pointed out that I'm yet to do a movie that couldn't debatably be called Cult - the closest I've gotten to a "mainstream" film is Ghostbusters. I'm going to have to make an effort to do something big time. Dr. Strangelove gets pushed back yet another week, I suspect.

I'm completely under the weather, too.

Guinea Pig Theatre: Vertigo

Better late than never!
By suggestion of my brother - I hope it's awesome enough to do justice to a magnificent film. I intentially tried a more cinematic approach and even tried my hand at that font that shows up so often through the film and on it's poster.
Hitchcock is easily one of my favorite directors of all time, though, tough to work into the GPT format, totally worth the challenge.

The Royal Tenenbaums

Guinea Pig Theatre: The Royal Tenenbaums

A rehash fill in as I go on a small vacation this weekend.

I'm actually working on a new GPT that simply isn't going to be finished tonight. My brother charged me with quite a difficult task as a GPT suggestion, and I don't think that I'm going to be able to rush it. Hopefully, I'll have a brand new GPT posted Monday night, but in the meantime here is, possibly, the most popular GPT I've done to this point, and maybe even my favorite in terms of dialogue pacing.

In good news, I got my new setup for my home office and the previous threat of a potential sabbatical from the strip isn't going to have to happen.

Technical issues were premature as my gear came magically to life!

Guinea Pig Theatre: Predator

Pee Wee's Big Adventure

Due to technical difficulties* tonight's Guinea Pig Theatre is an older yet unpublished on this blog comic.

Guinea Pig Theatre:  Pee Wee's Big Adventure

SORRY to anyone who has already seen this one.

I'm hoping that this is a temporary issue that will be resolved by Monday and I can post what I'm hoping is a super awesome (and BRAND SPANKING NEW!) GPT. ::Fingers crossed!::

*dead scanner.
"RIP, Scanner, say hello to Charon for me."

40 Year Old Virgin

Guinea Pig Theatre: 40 Year Old Virgin

"Dude, it's not a big deal that you like to fuck guys. I'm cool, I got friends who fuck guys... in jail."

This was a bit of a rush job, so I apologize. I also tried something new - doing a little "color coding" to allow for more back and forth dialogue.

Yay for Guinea Pig Theatre!
