Current Residence: Earth
Favourite genre of music: Hard rock/weird stuff
Favourite photographer: I'm not as familiar with photography as I should be, but i really like Ansel Adams
Favourite style of art: Art deco, German expressionism, film noir, anime, video game art
Operating System: Windows
Favourite cartoon character: Raphael, Snake-Eyes, Invader Zim, Dib, Filbert, Ren and Stimpy, Bender, Dr. John Zoidberg
Personal Quote: "Destroy all humans!"
Greetings, humans!

First off, sorry for the recent dA neglect!  My robot armies have been busy in other galaxies, plundering and squashing puny mortals.  You know how that goes.

Secondly (and not to make every point in this journal an apology...), for anyone attending Wizard World Chicago who was going to stop by my table, sorry I wasn't able to make it!  Turns out my publisher didn't attend, so I had no booth space.

HOWEVER, I will be signing comics, selling artwork and giving free high-fives Wednesday, September 17th at Graham Crackers Comics in DeKalb, IL.  I'll be there from noon till probably about 8:00, and I'll have plenty of free bookmarks and postcards on hand to give away.  Hope to see you there!  Check their site out:… If you've never been, the store is fantastic!

We'll be featuring the recently released issue #4 of The Revival at the signing, and you can see more on Hound Comics' website:… And, as always, thanks to everybody faving my art and watching me!  I'm still trying to find time to thank you all personally. :D

Over and out,

Tough question: what's your favorite childhood toy line?

Hi Mister Murderous Automaton,
I just wanted to say I've got my hands on an advance copy of the "Dieselpunk Retrofutures Of The All-American Art Deco Years" upcoming book and I can't tell you how happy and proud I am to see us both featured in that same new opus. I was the one who directed Ian from Graffito Books to you and your great artwork and that was most certainly one of the best things I did this year!
Best from Paris,

Hello, Stefan!

Wonderful!  I can't wait to see the book!  It's certainly an honor to be a part of such a cool project, especially with such talented artists as yourself!  I wasn't aware that you had recommended me--thanks so much!  I really appreciate it!  They told me you were part of the book, but I didn't know you had brought me in! ^___^ I had also recommended our good friend rodolforever, but they said he was already included!  I had a feeling you directed them to his work as well. :D Thanks again, sir!  I'm so excited to see the book!

My pleasure, Tom. To make an art book with graphics about "The Retrofutures Of The All American Art Deco Years" without you would have been a complete nonsense!

Hey there. Still been very busy? :)
MurderousAutomaton Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2014
Howdy, sir!  Yeah, still trying to keep up.  The project we're working on just got kicked up a notch, so it's gonna be a busy month!  I've also got a signing for my comic at a comic book store coming up soon, so that'll be fun! :la: How have you been?  Has the new semester started?
StarGamerWorld Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2014
Busy is usually good! Means lots of progress made. :D My semester is starting on Thursday actually. Nowhere near as tiring or difficult as last year but since I graduate in June I'll want to keep up the hard work as usual. Though I've been way more anxious than usual since this is my last college year. Ever felt like that before? ^^;
MurderousAutomaton Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2014
Very true!  I like being busy, even if it gets a little hectic at times. :D Nice!  Sounds like it'll be a fun semester!  Perhaps a little bittersweet, since it's your last.  But just think of how cool it'll be to be done and off to new adventures!  I guess I felt a bit anxious my last year, too--mostly trying to finish big animation projects in time!  It all kind of went by in a blur! :O

MurderousAutomaton Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2014
Well, Kidd Riot, as I live and breathe!  Good to see you on here, man!  I had no idea! ^____^ Hell yeah!  I'll be there, with issues 3 and 4!  I'll put a set aside for you.
