A person on Twitter sent me this old Halloween photo of theirs and it is now my favorite, most hilarious photo of people dressed as my characters. Squee looks like Batboy from the Weekly World News, and he’s ENORMOUS. The other kid looks like he maybe murdered GIR and then wore his skin like a suit.
All in all, this photos is fantastic and it makes me laugh. Would look at again.
Awesome, yeah? The best part was that I heard at least a dozen distinct voices wailing from within the suit.
Bryan Konietzko sent this my way earlier today.
The awesomeness of the robot is rivaled only by how genuinely upsetting that giggling from behind the camera is. Maybe someday that robot will rise up against his apparent captors and tear them apart.
Anyhow, damn fine work, robot makers.
This is what happens when people ask Rikki Simons to draw a GIR for them, and I love it. Pic is part of a larger post about his masterpiece over at Mindspill.
Like I usually do when I have to be working on something official, I get distracted, but on occasion the distraction at least provides something to show for my wasted time.
Last night, when I should have been writing a lil script for a Fringe comic, I ended up drawing these ZIM and GIR images. Not sure why. It just happened, okay?
Officially THE worst tattoo of anything related to my work.

A fan spotted this while wandering the streets the way all my homeless fans usually do. I’m not really sure what the artist was trying to say, other than “Here’s GIR eating a cupcake like he seems to”, but it’s still pretty funny to see so big on some, certainly very angry now, person’s wall.
What we’re not seeing, what’s clearly hinted at from just off to the right of the photo, is the Cupcake God ejaculating hot frosting at GIR’s face.
Well, here’s that Gainax show that took GIR out of the whorehouse he was working in and gave him a new job! It’s nice seeing him get some work, but I gotta say it’s a bit on the simple side for my tastes, what with the fart and shit jokes, but the ending is pretty ridiculous, and Gainax produces some of the only Japanese animation I can stand without wishing I was the drinking type, so I’m looking forward to more.
As for GIR, I don’t talk to him much, not since that episode of Intervention where I was called in to help talk him out of his heroin and whoring, but that was pretty much a bust. ”I DON’T HAVE A FUCKING PROBLEM” was pretty much all he screamed during the whole thing and just anyone mentioning him gets that running through my head like an unwelcome reverse mantra. Stresses me out, man.
I’m not gonna lie, I get a kick out of the stories I hear about him disillusioning fans who don’t know just how much time has passed since he starred in that ZIM show, the kids running up and asking him some silly thing, making sure to pepper it with quotes or words they think will make them more relatable to this beloved character of theirs only to get vomited on and, berated and then assaulted, sometimes sexually, by a dried up, ghoulish shade of a one-time cartoon darling. That’s just funny.
He seems a little underused in those new show, but I guess that’s about as good as they can hope for with what’s left of his mind after all the heroin. Hopping around and making little grunting noises is a far cry from his former glory days, but what’re ya gonna do, ya know? At least it’ll make the kids happy.
