The Home of the Creative Mind
Welcome to PooBahSpiel, the online voice and home of the creative mind of Mark Monlux, Illustrator Extraordinaire. Prepare yourself for an endless regaling of art directly from the hand of this stellar artist. And brace yourself against his mighty wind of pontification. Updates are kinda weekly and show daily sketches, current projects, and other really nifty stuff.

Sad, but true, I'm no George Clooney. On the plus side I don't have any regrettable facial tattoos. Both my eyes are relatively the same size and even with each other, and I typically don't frighten small children. So, not so bad.

In these harsh economic times it's important to support your local businesses. That's why on Sunday mornings I go to Connie's Donuts on Pacific Ave, in Tacoma. Don't trust Google map or the rest, but call and get their new address. Connie moved out of a tiny space in a ancient strip mall that had a parking lot with more craters than the moon, to her one building with very easy parking. My favorites are the chocolate eclairs and the chocolate covered old fashions. But, sometimes I just can't resist them rainbow jimmies.

I want to thank Connor Bogdanovic for sending in this guest strip. Many thanks, Dude! This was nearly identical to one I thought of drawing up. But, I got sidetracked with an arsonistic goat.

Last month I was part of a five person panel talking about Social Networking. I wanted to do a presentation that used only basic imagery to convey how rudimentary my knowledge and experience with Social Media was in comparison to the other speakers present. I had no idea that anyone would be taping, let along put together such a great video. Many thanks to the Craig and his team over at Creative Techs.

This is for all of those curious fans who are always interested in my dreams. Sometimes I dream very boring stuff. Or, in this case, somebody I know dreams boring stuff. And it all goes into the strip.

Now there are lots of people in Wales on the look out for slugs. One was spotted in nearby Caerphilly. These little terrors have teeth like blades and slurp up worms like spaghetti. Beware of Slugs.
