Theros Man-Thing

After a long delay, I am back. Though, I will not be posting once a day. I'll instead be posting a drawing whenever I can, but at least once a week.

Currently, I'm working on some promotional posters for my upcoming t-shirt/comic brand: Theros. Here's one involving the one, the only, the MAN-DINGALING(thing)!

Here are the rest of the posters if you want to take a peek: Theros Propaganda Posters

Day 24: Woman-Thing in Red

I'm moving slower than a snail with no slime on these.

Today you've got Woman in Red, a character I'm not too familiar with.

Women of Comics Week

Okay, so this week is tough. I'm going with the women of comics theme.

Think of it as if it were a woman that became the man-thing, rather than a man. Or Man-Thing in drag if that's your thing. I've got pencils done, but I'll be posting some real art tomorrow. You've been warned!

Man-Thing vs the World!

Jumping on the Scott Pilgrim band wagon. Just a man-thing drawing in Bryan Lee O'Malley style. 1 up!

I'll be taking this week off since I've only just finished up last week's art. Get ready for a different theme next week!

Day 22: He-Man-Thing

Man-Thing and the Masters of the Universe!

Day 23: Powdered Toast Man-Thing

Sorry for the delay guys.

Powdered Toast
ready to boast,
starting my morning with an early roast.

I'm dead tired and that non-sense rhyme was the best I could come up with.

Day 21: Harvey Birdman-Thing

Auto injury? Work accident? Fleshlight stuck? Identity theft?

Day 20: Quail-Man-Thing

Let's see what Patty Mayonnaise has to say about this guy's beets!

"I'd like to bang his trashcan and drum his streetlight" - Patty

Day 19: Cartman-Thing


A new student to the town of South Park. The cold seems to be frosting his vegetable mass. Shrinkage, you know? A couple of cheesy poofs and some chicken pot pie and everything will be all right.

Man-Thing LIVE

Just to cap off videogame week, here's my xbox avatar with some man-thingification. Enjoy!

And if anyone wants to get their butts kicked on xbox live, you can add me: donalejandro81.

Day 18: Gordon Freeman-Thing

City 17 has a new problem. Not a man, not a thing, but the one free Man-Thing. The combine call him the "Crowbar Samurai".

There hasn't been a headcrab yet that could get a hold of the three appendages on his face.

Day 17: Bomberman-Thing

First of all, sorry for the delay. Due to that, I'll give away 5 prints of the Man-Thing day of your choice. First 5 to email me at will get one.

Now to business.

Day 16: Seaman-Thing

Man-Thing has been swimming in the swamp water too long. If he had relations with a fish, this is what occurs.
Seaman was by far one of the creepiest, yet most fun games I've ever played. It came out for the Dreamcast and was one of the only games with a microphone at the time. This fish with a man face would at first just swim around with its brothers and sisters in a tank, eventually to suck the life out of them with a tube on top of its head. You were then left with the last fish standing (or swimming). You awake the next day to find out he now asks questions and wants to learn about your life. A fish with a man-face asking you how your day went. Yup. Awesome. I eventually trained mine enough to become a moth-like creature and then die.

Also, here's an extra drawing I did a few months ago. The man-face hyenas.

Happy Man-Thing Birthday!

So, as posted earlier, my birthday was yesterday. My brother, Joe, had already drawn me a Man-Thing based card along with his gift, which was the 3rd "Y: The Last Man" hardcover and I recommend the series to anyone who hasn't read it. Check it out on Day 14's post.

Little did I know this wasn't the only Man-Thing based gift. My girlfriend, Terri, who I thought would be sick of hearing about my Man-Thing (pun intended), bought me a Man-Thing figure! It even came with a comic! She had him play dress-up in an outfit of mine. Feast your eyes on AleManjandro-Thing!

Whatever knows fear burns at the touch of the Man-Thing's art!

Day 15: Pokéman-Thing

Gotta catch all the Man-Things!
Man-Thing has set forth on the adventure all young boys make, the adventure of Pokemon Mastery! So far, Man-Thing has only been at it for a few weeks, but has caught a considerable amount of pocket monsters and has the Elite Four in his sights. The only set-back he has is that every other trainer seems to be trying to capture Man-Thing for themselves.

Strangely enough, I dusted off the old gameboy today and look at who I found running around Viridian Forest!

"I want to be the very best, that no Man-Thing ever was!" - Ash Ketchum

Day 14: Mega Man-Thing

PRESS START. It's video game week!

Man-Thing has gone 8-bit.

It's also my birthday today, and my brother, Joe, left this note in my room for when I got home. Hope you like it as much I did.

Day 13: X-Man-Thing

Man-Thing has found an application into Xavier's academy and may have checked yes for mutant.

Last day of Marvel week! I wanted to get a little more creative with this one. It's just my take on what Man-Thing would wear if part of the X-Men. Had to keep his hands free for melting the bad guys. Enjoy!

"Is that your Man-Thing or are you happy to see me, sugah?" - Rogue

Day 12: Ant-Man-Thing

Ant-Man-Thing. There is no feat small enough for Man-Thing.

Marvel Week is almost over, one more to go!

"Wait, you can control bugs? Okay, you're on the team. I just need you to fix a small infestation problem at my house first." - Nick Fury

Day 11: Iron Man-Thing

Man-Thing is a little frustrated with the new suit Tony Stark gave him. Tony promised to give him a few lessons but instead just decided to get drunk and fight War Machine in his house. He left instructions, but Man-Thing has a little bit of a hard time reading.

"If it weren't for Man-Thing burning the assistant director on set, I wouldn't have this job." - Robert Downy Jr.

Day 10: Spider-Man-Thing

My Man-Thing sense is tingling!

A man named Ted was working in the 'glades. He drank some chemicals and then turned into a hunk of vegetable mass that kicks butt and strikes fear in the hearts of all evil. He was then bitten by a radioactive spider in the swamp and made a red and blue costume to swing around in the trees, what?

"This was my original idea for Man-Thing." - Stan Lee

Day 9: Man-THING

It's clobberin' time. The only reason Man-Thing wanted to be Thing is because of the blue undies. Ben can't rock 'em like Man-Thing can.

BY THE WAY, it's Marvel week. I'll be doing four more Marvel characters by the end of Friday.

"Somebody better put this guy out because he's ON FIRE!" - Johnny Storm

Here's an old drawing I did of The Thing:

Day 8: Anchorman-Thing

I don't know how to put this but he's kind of a big deal. Man-Thing is taking over your hearts, and now your news stations. Even though he technically can't speak, he's going to deliver the news whether you like it or not. (The 4's in the background are for the channel 4 news, not Fantastic Four!)

Stay classy followers.

Day 7: Hang Man-Thing

Hey guys. I've been very sick for the past two days so I haven't done much at all. Some kind of fever/flu thing. My brother came up with a Man-Thing that wouldn't take up too much time. I actually really like how it came out anyway.

Day 6: Chris Neseman-Thing

Most of you reading this probably know who Chris Neseman is. In case you don't, I'll treat you to some information.

Chris is one of four members of the 11 O'Clock Comics Podcast. I stumbled upon this podcast through my Zune, and have been listening since November-ish. After a drink roll call, you can expect hours of some awesome comics discussion. Since today is Wednesday, and they record on Wednesdays, I decided to do this as a tribute. Sorry for the other 3 members who don't have the word man in their names.

Tune in on the website, subscribe to the podcast on iTunes or Zune, and check out the forum! You can expect a new episode every Thursday and listen to Chris speak, well, that is if he doesn't fall asleep.

"Awesome!" - Vince B.

Day 5: Randy "The Macho Man-Thing" Savage

OOOOOhhhhh YEEEEEE-AH! Macho Madness is here and Man-Thing is along for the ride.
Here's one of my favorite wrestling promos of all time: Macho Man Promo.

Day 4: Y: The Last Man-Thing

The last man (thing) on Earth is here and he's ready to get this planet repopulated.

"Now THAT'S a man worthy of my protection!" - 355

Man-Thing by Xurxo G. Penalta

As you may know, the MTAD (short awesome slang for Man-Thing A Day) project is only going on during the weekdays. Therefore, for all four of my followers who are fiending over the next MTAD, I'll be showcasing other renditions of Man-Thing that I enjoy.

First up, Xurxo Penalta. Xurxo is a Galego (someone from Galicia, a part of Spain that is close to Portugal) that draws some amazingly detailed pieces. He happened to draw the portrait of Man-Thing featured in today's post. You can check out more of his art at

Xurxo and I are also both members of the 11 o'clock comics forum. It's a great community with an even better podcast!

Don't be afraid to follow me on Twitter. You know what happens when Man-Thing senses fear! (You get burned)

Day 3: Dr. Man-Thing-Hattan

If there is any other person that feels as out of touch with humanity as Man-Thing, it's probably Dr. Manhattan. Man-Thing has been wondering why he hasn't received as much attention, and he may have found it. He's not blue! Man-Thing has walked out of the Intrinsic Field Subtractor with all of the same abilities, yet, something is off. He seems to be a little less "equipped" than his Watchmen counterpart. Can Man-Thing catch a break?

"I would love this if I could." - Dr. Manhattan

Day 2: Batman-Thing

The dark knight is in style these days, and Man-Thing is no exception. Get ready for Gotham City's newest hero.

"He's so good, I might retire!" - Bruce Wayne

Day 1: Man-Thing

Today is the first day of "Man-Thing A Day". Man-Thing has been going through what you may call an identity crisis, with Swamp Thing being around, and he's invited everyone to see what images work best for him.

Check this site every weekday to see what character Man-Thing has become.
