An amateur author meets with John Doe, a mysterious man who offers to tell stories of his childhood to the author for the basic groundworks of a novel. John Doe’s accounts however turn out to be nightmarish descriptions of a seemingly impossible home located out in a desert comprised of roadways and roadkill, eventually drawing focus to his abusive upbringing with an ominous, nameless father figure.

Contains themes relating to child abuse and animal cruelty.

Iron Logs webcomic

Iron Logs webcomic

Read Iron Logs on this website or on Tumblr. The first chapter, "The Plastic Forest", published March 28th, 2018, is available online. The 2nd and 3rd chapters are in preparation.

An exercise in abstraction and absurdity, Iron Logs is a multi-chapter serial that follows the surreal exploits of Karina along with her mixed range of peers, some having sinister intentions and others downright nonsensical.

Iron Logs started off in mid-2017 when I was observing the cartoonist circles that were active on Tumblr. Many artists in that circle that I knew were either closely following or writing their own, for a lack of a better term, “nudie cutie” comics. Essentially the same sort of stylistic traits and narratives you’d get in a Russ Meyer film, but commonly with characters who were more ‘alternatively’ (i.e. mall punk or goth) fashioned. Just around that time, I was developing an interest in Georges Bataille, following closely from my interests in surrealist collage and ero guro. Considering the nature of how Bataille published Story Of The Eye, I got the idea to make a surrealist comic that disguised itself as one of those contemporary Tumblr nudie comics to sorta disrupt the norm.

The first chapter was made over the summer, while these other two I just started writing this year (2020). The first chapter is a bit rough artistically speaking, these following chapters are closer to my initial vision. It apparently did meet my goal though. I remember in particular another artist who was writing his own comic expressed his being deeply concerned after being at a bit of a loss for words during the comic’s launch. The series is now somewhat wandering for a new home, as Tumblr’s guidelines drastically shifted in late-2018 and most of those artists had since migrated to other places. I don’t really know where though.

Aside from the transgressive actions of the dysfunctional lovers that the series follows, Iron Logs is driven by the bizarre locations that it traverses. Some of the locations include a forest made out of plastic, the flesh market, a 1930s factory town riddled with murderous businessmen, a mansion of bourgeoisie complacency and perversity, the fetus of the universe, a prison camp, a ‘void room’, and the iron woods (a forest where trees made of coagulated blood grow from the remains of detonated missiles).

Just to clarify due to the sort of imagery depicted, none of the scenes in the comic reflect my personal views. My parents were animal rescuers before I was born, and the sexuality depicted is meant to be grotesque and surreal than erotic.

Visit The Acid Ball Experience on this website, on Tumblr or on Facebook.

Acid Ball is an idea I first dreamed up in 2012 when I was 14, later returned to when I was 17, and have periodically revisited it since then. The main characters are Acid Ball (top hat, big eye), Pilgrim (Acid Ball's kind of lower body-vehicle), Coco (speaks in signs, the other top hat person with short hair), the Collective Individual (similar to Pilgrim, the kind of lower body-vehicle that Coco sometimes rides around in and holds numerous other aspects of the Collective Individual), Average Joe, and assorted visitors.
