news bits

hello bean men readers.... i wanted to share some small news bits on the bean men with you.

you may have noticed the ads on the top and right of this. i realize that they are a bit tacky and just sorta there in the way of things looking nice... but they are a way for me to make a few pennies, so if your feeling up to it, an easy way to support the site is to click on the ads.

the bean men have a strip appearing in october's issue of Zoinks! magazine. the issue can be ordered from their website or picked up at any of the major comics shops in canada.

a profile i wrote about the bean men has been put up on the comicon/pulse's the same info that's on the bean men's myspace, but if you haven't read it, yet it does share some insight on how i approach the strip.

here's a great little bean men drawing that Mike Jensen of lonely fetus comics drew, that iv'e neglected to put up here for far too long. take a look at his webcomic!

and finally here's a bean men drawing by my pal DANK! featuring his character atlantis lad, he made while sitting next to me at fall-con...i should mention ive done a bit of embelishing on it.

1. print onto thick cardstock.

2. cut out pieces.

3. poke holes at joints with a pin or needle.

4. using a wire with a small coil at the end, add 1 bead, push through the head and neck joint so that the wire sticks out of the back.

5. add a bead after the second piece and make a small coil in the wires.

6. flatten coil against back of doll. Pinch both coils together to flatten against doll and tighten joint.

7. repeat for all joints.

guest page #9

today we have a fantastic bean men piece by the super cool fella Steve Harrison, he draws the also super cool sci-fi epic Fabricari... if you like the kind of stuff you'd find in heavy metal magazine, then you'll prolly go nuts for it. head over to

Steve's got his web cam set up to record his board as he draws, so if you catch him while he's online you can whatch him draw in streaming real time... ive added a few sketches at the bottom of his page that i whatched him whip up in like 30 seconds each.
