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.

I'm a founder of a group in Washington State called The CLAW. Our newsletter is a bit different than most groups in that it doesn't contain any "news". Even the format is different than other newsletters. The CLAW creates tiny six paged comics called "trashcans" which are created from one 8.5 by 11 piece of paper folded and cut in a unique way. We then take these little treasures and sprinkle them around the city of Tacoma to various bistros, coffee shops, and stores. They are highly sought "found" items. This is the third issue and the them was "Tacoma, City of Density", a play on the city's real motto, "City of Destiny". You can download issues #1 and #2 here.
