A record cover & a t-shirt I did for Glitz! I was trying to channel 1974 & using some obvious references & feelings of that time. I did so much art for bands & stuff between 2012 & 2014, it was nuts!

& I formed 25 years ago in Oakland at CCAC as a means to publish our zines & comics. GOBLINKO still exists as an entity to publish our stuff! The name combined my Punk name “Goblin” with the Kompany starting with a K for Katie & so the Goblin Kompany was born. We’ve weathered a lot & will keep going as long as we can! To celebrate 25 years use the code 25YEARS at checkout to get 25% off your order at GOBLINKO.COM

I remember the first time I came across a GBH record in the wild, there was this tabloid, cartoony aspect to UK82 Punk that I loved, a cultural stability that you didn’t see in American Punk of the same time. I had to make it mine!

Halloween means something more than the one holiday to me - to most of us that appreciate it, it’s a way of being goofily morbid & not so controlled. It’s a good thing, disguised as lightly bad.

I decided to write down some things I’d learned over the years in PORK as a way of passing on the strategy I’d figured out for my own very personal view of success, this turned into the Goblin‘s Rules. I feel that success is such a loaded idea, when it’s such a personal, individual trip. I try to emphasize this.

We raised our kids to read using lots of comics & lots of regular books. People love to read in general as it opens up this endless world in your brain that can only be accessed with the written word. Comics opens up more by combining words & pictures! The brain just goes crazy for this stuff! (Read the whole piece at GOBLINKO, link in bio!)

Way back in 2014 I did the cover for Ghoul’s Hang Ten album. There was a period there where I was doing a lot of album Art & you couldn’t throw a rock without hitting me on a new release. I miss being part of the cultural fabric like that.

I’ve wanted to make video games ever since I was a kid - my dad made music for C64 games in the mid 80s, but I’ve never been enough of a computer person to program them myself, I do like the methodical placement of pixels however. Anyhow, I’m finally working on our first game & with your help on the Kickstarter it will come to life in the next year!

I was obsessed with 60s “sick humor” products ever since we rented a house in East Oakland & I got the basement room which had been converted into a bar. There was a freeing element of the sh*tty energy that came with liver collapse! Our posters were done in this spirit, signaling an openness to a certain kind of sh*ttiness!

’ve been thinking about assumptions about the world & how it works lately, I’ve been feeling less & less sure about the outside world & more & more sure about my inside world lately. I’m content to move my pieces slowly forward & have only a small idea of the moves of my opponent. I’m stoked to be able to move my pieces at all. The game & the board & the other players aren’t ideal, but this is the match we find ourselves in.

I lived in a neighborhood in Baltimore called Pig Town, they used to run pigs through the streets to the slaughterhouses in the old days, when I lived there in 1997 it was a cheap, run down neighborhood that looked like the neighborhood in Hair Spray but way more ghetto! This brief period of time left an impression on me, I lived away from home for the first time & grew a lot, & Baltimore grew on me too!

I don’t remember if I ran this SALT comic in PORK or not! But! I’m using SALT as the main character in my big video game project It’s awesome to use this character again & he is so well defined that he creates stories just by being put in situations!

I’m stoked to announce our first video game project, DUNGEON DEGENERATES: THE BATTLE FOR BRÜTTELBURG.We’re going to launch the Kickstarter this Spring, with an intended release next Spring or as soon as possible! The game is an 8 bit, 2D sidescrolling beat ‚em up with heavy RPG elements & puzzles. I’m art-directing the whole thing & I’ve done all the graphics so far, the mechanics will be handled by MUY INTERACTIVE. The intention is to break the mold but the molds created games like River City Ransom, The Legend of Zelda, Castlevania, Double Dragon & Ghosts & Goblins! Follow to see lots of updates!

There was a period there (2011-2015) where we were presenting lots of shows in Eugene & Portland & things were really happening! It was fun! This show was fun! Tiny’s Tavern was such a great dive.

PORK brought people together, even though it was polarizing, it connected those people that could get down & that’s tremendous. In its absence I’m seeing the incredible isolation people are going through. At the same time, show me anyone who can actually change where the world is at right now. I guess being realistic is part of the problem now. The limited number of PORK back issues available are on sale for 25% if you use the code PORK25. From Goblinko! &roll

During the heyday of PORK, we had awesome tattoo parties at Imperial Tattoo here in Portland. There was free pizza, beer, cider & cheap tattoos! I’d draw a new flash sheet for each party & got to see people getting my designs going under their skin for eternity! We’ve collected those designs plus more in four volumes that are perfect for carrying on the tradition of getting my art zapped onto your skin! (Link in bio)

In 1999 we set out to do as much artistic impact as possible with GOBLINKO & our posters are part of that mission, fast, cheap & the easiest way to redefine & claim space! Sherwin Williams said it best! (Link in bio) **p

I figured it out. Life was hard for me growing up, my brain was working against me, I was slipping on my own banana peels. Eventually I started to piece together an approach to life that worked, somewhere between my extreme Punk Individualism & Pragmatism. I shared this methodology in PORK magazine, then I had a life-changing stroke. I’ve managed to not look backwards & keep my eyes on the prize with the way I’ve structured my approach to life, this zine expands on this. The Goblin’s Rules Of The Game will change your life!

Lunar New Year triggers my Bay Area brain into thinking that Spring is coming, we’ve got at least a month of Winter left in Oregon & so much of the country - still, new t-shirts are needed, from GOBLINKO to give all the options as the weather gets better. Link in bio.

There’s a weird world created by the collision of biker gangs, Black power, teenage delinquency & dime stores, that mix defined what we were doing for so long & definitely defined our patch collection - the idea was to make things relevant for 2012 & 1972! Anyhow, most of these patches are half off & you can get 20 different ones for $50! So do it! Link in bio -

I drew this comic about The Rules from Ramones Commando song back in Eugene, as a comic for the backs of the Monsters, Weirdos & Creeps series that predated PORK but was pulling from the same areas.
