An illustration for a menu
I really dug the Alpha Flight comic as a kid.
here’s a really old one. The color holds on this thing are out of control. Yuck.
An illustration I did a million years ago for a restaurant in Portland, Oregon
trying something with color.
I dunno, he’s a demon that does graffiti and stabs people or something. Elijahbrubaker.com
A while back I did some little paintings of demons that float around in my head. I had a lot of trouble with this guy.
Here’s a study of a sandwich for some silly project.
these are from 2008 or so. I colored them with coffee and it turned out pretty cool. Elijahbrubaker.com
One of the first things I did online was draw a bunch of pictures of superheroes with pithy commentary about how silly they all seemed. Some people thought the things I wrote were funny and that helped launch me into the world of writing stupid shit on the internet, hoping to entertain someone. This picture of Red Tornado is over ten years old and the drawing still looks okay to me. The drawing itself is pretty whack but the color scheme of Red Tornado is really appealing. The design of the character is almost un-fuck-up-able.
After all this time, I’m still not sure what the character is all about. He’s a robot that can make tornadoes or he’s a living tornado in a robot body or some shit… Who knows? comic books are stupid.

I’ll be posting things some of you have seen before. I’m cleaning up my desktop and found a million old illustrations and comics. elijahbrubaker.com
Robin (Johnny Rico) Morrison and Elijah (Rinse Dream) Brubaker take a look at the art porn classic, Cafe Flesh. It’s not bad, there are totally dongs and beavers in this movie. I’m pretty sure porn of the era was obligated to light everything like it the meat section in a supermarket. Everything is swollen and red and I’ll be damned if I didn’t get a hankering for skirt steak watching this thing.
It should also be noted that this movie has a story and acting and cool arty set pieces. Things that are hard to come by in most things labeled pornographic. Yes, I realize I used the phrase “hard to come by.” get your mind out of the gutter, you degenerate.
Elijah (Durand Durand) Brubaker and Robin (Pygar) Morrison take a look at the great 60’s sci-fi sex-romp, Barbarella. This movie is chock full of plastic and fur and there’s SOOOO much Jane Fonda. There’s more Jane Fonda in this thing than has ever been in anything. This movie has eye-candy throughout, including John Phillip Law who’s a hunk and a half. Awoogah.

Robin (Marion) Morrison and Elijah (Maureen) O’Brubaker discuss the 1952 John Wayne/John Ford collaboration, The Quiet Man. It isn’t the usual fair for these two except for the universal sentiment “bitches be trippin’.” Feel free to Irish up some coffee and kick back while the guys discuss the film, stem to stern… spoiler alert, of course.
