Re-Gifting (pt. 4)
So here are the last couple of pieces from the AstroArchives I'd like to share with you. They were created for two different art exhibitions and require a little bit of explanation, I think...

The first was for a comic-themed show at Maxwell's Maxwell's in Hoboken, NJ, curated by my Super-Pal Karl Heitmueller. Dubbed "Agents of P.O.O.C." (Panels Out Of Context), the artists' mission was to reinterpret one of our favorite comic book panels. Some guys did giant paintings, I think one guy did a stained glass window, etc...

Being a life-long Spider-Man fan, and in particular a Steve Ditko Spider-Man fan, I always loved the little full page backup features he did that taught you all about Spider-Man's powers and what his webs can do and crap like that. I also had recently bought An Ideal Boy , a lovely and entertaining coffee table book of Indian educational charts. I could not help but draw a parallel between these two brightly colored forms of childhood indoctrination and create a mash-up of them.

The second one was done a couple years later for the Too Art For TV Too show, printed at about 18" x 24" size, mounted on foam core, and displayed side-by-side with the first in a sort of "procrastinator's diptych."

...And that's all for now. Our annual Venture Bros. Christmas song should be available for your holiday listening pleasure in a day or two. In the meantime, you can enjoy all seven of our previous efforts, collected in one convenient location by clicking HERE!

We Love You,

It really does show. When Pete and Billy get into it, it just seems to flow together like a real conversation. With all of the dialogue it sounds like real conversation, but it truly stands out between those two. I think that's one of the things that really gravitated me to the show in season two, it just FEELS real.

So it's the two of you going it alone or do you pepper in a little dialogue from other people? I mean, do you ever have someone "pitch" you lines for lack of a better term or is it just 100% publick/hammer created? Because I swear to god sometimes I'll watch the show (especially after season one) and just be completely blown away by how fluid and realistic some of the dialogue is.

Example, when Al bitches about MySpace in the ORB episode... I mean Christ, you can't find better than that. At least 1/3 of the fan base has said something along the lines of "Why can't I read the comments? They're on the FIRST PAGE!" It's just amazing sometimes.

Sorry for the long post, I've just been meaning to give you guys long overdue kudos for the outstanding job in the dialogue.

I just realized you answered my question when you said you and doc do 100% of the lines. sorry.
