Bad Day Studio
C.2003 Bad Day Studio
Welcome to Bad Day.
Founded in 1995, Bad Day Studio was created as an imprint for a line of secular, science fiction-themed Holiday Cards. It quickly spread to include graphic endeavors, small press comics, and whatever else I could pin the logo to. For years I intended to give it a web presence, but kept putting it off due to a wholesale lack of ambition. Then friends started asking me to put the back editions of the Bad Day Holiday Cards online (so they wouldn't have to dig up their old copies from musty junk drawers, no doubt). This site was started solely for that reason. As with most things complicated and inanimate, it took on a life of its own. Since then I have been its slave.
I am fully aware that you have no legitimate reason to be here. Certainly there are many responsibilities and bad habits far more worthy of your time. I harbor no illusions that the air will become rich with the anxious scent of ejaculate at the prospect of seeing me caber-toss my honor onto the web, so I appreciate you taking the time to pop in and gaze at the weirdness. If you are just trawling the web looking for a good time, might I be so bold as to recommend a few ideas?
For those who just came to read the old Holiday Cards (and I know you are out there) I have built an Archive for all of them.
Gravity Lens is my obligatory weblog. Originally a forum for purging bits of madness from the quivering bowels of my mind, it has since become a delivery system for concentrated salvos of philosophy, science fiction, comics, bizzarre technology, and other inexplcable strangeness from culture's fog-shrouded moors. It's my attempt to reroute your attention to things of interest. I have a tendancy to evangelize about futurism and atheism. I am also a fully-functioning asshole, primarily because I am always right.
Velvet Telemetry is a storehouse for fiction, poetry and other leftovers from my notebooks. Some of this has been published before, some is best forgotten.
Inkhouse is an archive of some of the more palatable small press comic books and strips I've been involved with in some capacity.
There are a couple featured web-projects here as well, Visions of Xenolympus and Cities in Shadow. These are science fiction docu-comics.
If all of the above bores you (it certainly puts me to sleep) then go play in the Amazing Colossal Links Page.
By the way, anytime you see a Bad Day logo, it's a link back to the home page. Aren't I clever?
Opinions, comments, insults, and mean-spirited personal attacks are welcomed and encouraged, along with any advice you feel compelled to give concerning this site. Write me.
Salutations and kudos to everyone who has helped me in this ill-conceived and questionably-executed project: Karen D. for the Illustrator tips, Modesty O. for the advice, Mark V. for dropping invaluable nuggets of web-wisdom on me, Karl T. for troubleshooting my links, my partners-in-art Carolyn and Brian for supplying the missing pieces, Thom H. for his keen eye, and finally Jennifer for the much-needed editorial assistance.
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a Bad Day.
