The Start of a New Year.

SSM New Site Screencap

I’ve resisted posting anything to this site for the last couple of months since a new site is in the works. Seeing as it’s not quite finished, I should make a quick update.

I’ve been growing Sideshow Massacre, taking on new clients, new challenges and have even gotten into new equipment.

Sideshow Massacre can now do decals and vinyl graphics. All of those illustrative things we do can now be turned into heavy duty, all weather decals and installed practically anywhere. Now the quest is on for clientele, trying to explain that we don’t ONLY do vomit and peens.

Robot Decal Cutsheet

HMTDF Sheet

2013 is already shaping up to be mind blowing. Huge plans are in the works (starting with finally dropping the new site). More shows, more art, more deviant behaviour.

Check us out on Facebook for the regular updates and anything interesting we’re doing when not posting here.


Just in Case!

Just in case it’s not clear. To order anything you see on this site you can:

Email me dcptcon@hotmail

Send me a message through the Sideshow Massacre Facebook page

Or even leave a comment on any of the posts.

I ship worldwide and accept paypal, emt, money order and strange trades.


New Sideshow Massacre Shirts

The other big news this weekend are two new Sideshow Massacre shirts.

Following the sell out and retirement of my previous robot shirts, I have new robot shirts!

Available in red, grey, light blue and dark blue (only two dark blue left).

I’m also dropping a limited number of the Morgue Style shirts on black and white.

All Sideshow Massacre shirts are now $15

Cold weather mean more layers…which means buy 3 of these shirts and wear them simultaneously. Increase your style and your girth.


‘Tis the Season blah blah Zombie

I’m still trying to figure out how to reach the most people (old and new) with these posts without spamming the hell out of the people who already follow my hijinks (and I love you for it).

Christmas is a month away. Now is the time to obtain cards to send to close friends, mortal enemies and elderly reletives with a lot of money and a heart condition.

Sideshow Massacre happens to have the perfect cards, that may cause fortuitous “accidents”.

Proffesionally printed, each card includes an envelope. That’s half the battle. Write something endearing or subltey threatening and you’re all set.

$2.50 each.

If you love the cards, share the post. If you can get a picture of someone’s amused or repulsed face looking at the cards, post that.


To Market, To Market…

Since we’re on the topic of the Rock n’ Roll market (I was), I thought I’d get an opinion on these handy canvas bags?

Would anybody rock an affordable and unbelievably versatile canvas bag?

Just think of what you could carry.

Think about it.

Thoughts?


To All a Good Night…

My sister has been visiting since Saturday so I have accomplished next to nothing. The freaks will be back to normal in just a few days. In the meantime I’m trying to drum up some interest in Christmas cards, ’tis the season.

I will be printing early next week. They’re available through me at dcptcon@hotmail.com, through comments on this post or through the Sideshow Massacre Facebook page.

There will also be a Sideshow Massacre table at this year’s Rock n’ Roll market at Logan’s. So if you’re in the Victoria area the weekend of November 24th, pop in and say “hi”.


Cheating, Cheating Freaks.

Doing some hand colouring on the Christmas elf. Brainstorming in colour which doesn’t happen much.

Christmas cards will be finished and printed very soon. Wouldn’t your Nana love one?

I’m sure she would.


Birthday Freak…not Birthday Themed.

Hello Wednesday, nice to see you again.


I’m Late Featuring Freaks.

Monday on Tuesday, outrageous.


Friday, a Full Week of Featured Freaks.

Just keep pushing. Big things take time.


It’s the Featured Freak…

I don’t know if this is working for me…

However, I think I’ll be doing some Christmas cards once I clean up this present and add some colour and text.

Business plans are hard.


Featured Freak!

Spent the day behind the counter at Talk’s Cheap today. Learned to operate a record machine, I hear they’re the format of the future.


Tuesday’s Featured Freak!

Writing a business plan over the next couple of weeks. Not as much fun as drawing vomit, but serious business is on the way.

TUESDAY!


Mondays Featured Freak!

I’m introducing the Featured Freak as of today. They will be daily posts that keep the blog moving while I work on larger, quieter projects. Check back often.

As always, I’d love to hear from folks. Share it around if your really like the work, and return often.


Morgue Style has Arrived – No Head for the Undead

Working on a new t-shirt here at Sideshow Massacre.

A couple of colourways should arrive soon.

Morgue Style – No Head for the Undead

I’d wear it, would you wear it?


Schwag!

New pins made from an old friend. Huge selection of colours.

Blocktopi pins $2

Braintestine Pins $2.50

Braintestine Cuff Links $12.50

Shipping costs here in Canada are the pits so package together as much as you can.

Questions, comments, concerns and orders.

dcptcon @ hotmail dot com or through the Sideshow Massacre Facebook page.


Duke of Sooke Hillclimb

This will just be a brief post to assure my blog that I haven’t forsaken it. There are a ton of commissions on the go, as they are finished I’ll be able to start posting them.

In the meantime, a friends birthday was celebrated with the first annual Duke of Sooke Hillclimb. This involved a $200 car, 5 acres of wilderness (give or take), an unused terrifying gravel “road” and a full day of fun.

First the car needed some styling.

More after the jump. Beware, post DOES contain peens!

(more…)


Vacationing Like an Octogenarian

I think I should just throw together a post rather then posting one photo at a time on the Facebook.

My little “vacation” has given me time to work on some doodles and anything I can make sitting down.

If you’re visiting from said Facebook, then you may have seen the first two.

Making some stickers from an old design. Just paper. Thinking about letting them see the world.

Craving bigger stickers…hmmmm…

Last doodle. Top secret. Between you me and the other three readers this blog gets.

I’m also getting caught up on the last 9 years in television thanks to netflix. Have you seen Lost? It’s not bad lol

Share this, spread the disease!


It Sure is…

I love metal coolers, and spamming photos.

Therefore, today must be a dream come true.


Finite Show for Infinite Awfulness.

This will be the last post about my first show…probably…pretty sure. I just want to thank the people that helped make it happen.

Without Tiemen and Talk’s Cheap, there is now venue and of course no show. He has supported myself and whatever Sideshow Massacre is since the very beginning. I’ll never be able to articulate how much his support has meant to me…he also printed the shirts. Unbelievable.

Darryl, notoriously from SixWordSkits took it upon himself to do the grindhouse event poster. He put together the animated promo with nothing but my drawing of vomiting zombies to work with and then adapted it into the infinitely puking zombies that played throughout the show. This run-on sentence is an attempt at thanking him for his technical know-how and generosity in making the show a proper spectacle.

Metropol printed all the stickers and posters. They never fail to provide fantastic quality along tiny timelines.

Adam for just doing anything I needed at a moments notice.

Most importantly. I need to put out a huge thank you to the masses of people that passed in and out of that scorching hot space all evening. I was thrilled to see so many friends make the trek and check things out. I am still shocked by the number of unfamiliar people that visited, chatted and commented.

It was a reality altering experience, I’ve never had my insecurities been washed away so thoroughly.

When it was all said and done, just about half the pieces went off to new homes and my stock of t-shirts and stickers was decimated.

I’m sorry if I forgot anyone.

Thank you. Everyone.


Forever Awful. First Gala ever, check.

You can continue to see the work all month though. You should check it out. The shenanigans went down at Talk’s Cheap 556B Pandora ave. and that’s where it remains.

More pictures of my first solo outing, after this break.

Forever Awful. On the Radio!

The show is dropping in 12 days. My stress level is doing the exact opposite.

Jason Lamb was nice enough to plug my show in this weeks episode of his Punk show. You may know him from The Zone 91.3 morning show as well as his Punk Show

Punk Show #54

As always, you should listen to the entire show, the music is fantastic and features a lot of local punk. In this case, you should also listen for my plug from 26:55 -27:55.

If you have no idea what I’m talking about…you’re dead to me.


Intake on the Uptake

Less then three weeks before my first solo dealy. Still so much to do. It’s taking all my will power to not post any of the show things up here. You understand…right? No? Fine. Why do we have to fight in front of company?

There was at least one blip in the show prep.

Intake for a friends Jetta project.

Not breaking new ground, but I sure do like painting corpses and vomit.

Sideshow Massacre loves you…


Version 2

Second version of the art show poster. Coming from Darryl once again. Love it.

Share it around!
