Trash and Clash-Childhood by Comickpro Trash and Clash-Childhood by Comickpro
The 2nd piece I did for the Annual Children's Illustration Exhibition in Hayward California. Since nobody was going to know who Trash and Clash were, I went for pieces that introduce them to the viewers for the first time. In this piece, I redid an old comic story...the origin of Trash's name (which you might well know this comic was the plot of their first and only flash cartoon from years ago!) comickpro.deviantart.com/art/T… . I hoped that it shed some light on Trash and the start of his anger issues with humans haha. Again this was a new piece to experiment with because the comic was done on a piece of paper 16x20! huge...also the paper didn't like inking brushes much since it was so textured and not easy to glide the lines.

You can see both pieces here in their frames:

In an alternative and more twisted universe...

Trash and Clash would be a pretty good kid's cartoon series, lol.

Lol, same here, I used to love watching Watership Down (the movie version, not the series) which caused me to start drawing rabbits killing each other. Later I read a sonic comic with fleetway super sonic which made draw stories about demonic possession, and then at some point I drew some horrific transformations, unfortunately I have lost those pictures and they have most likely went into the bin because I remember thinking that they were embarrassing pictures. Lolz

Yeah, maybe there is some secret kids channel that is really violent and gory that only kids can be able to watch when parents aren't looking. Kids are always up to no good these days so they have to get their inspiration from something. lol

how come Trash never gets upset at Clash or never manifests his "episodes" in front of him?

i know that he wants to protect clash but arent these episodes triggered by memories like those?

Comickpro Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
Well in the cartoon version of this comic he does manifet his angers and rips a dog in half and roars on clash covered in blood lol...

Clash just says oh you dont like popcorn?? THATS TOO BAD :iconderpplz:

and yes clash does accidentally stir up bad memories in Trash haha but I think he realizes Clash doesn't mean it so he tends to try and restrain that rage...although you never know if one day he wont be able to control it!

hahaha good eyes, yes he has a mild dislike of soda as well :B but not as much as the popcorn since it was far more potent to his sight and senses in his time of baby pain and suffering.

Soda could be potent against his developing beak-teeth. He needs as much enamel as he can get to rip out intestines and tear apart skin in the future.

To be fair, I'd probably be creeped out too if I opened an egg and found a talking chick with teeth inside.
But then I'd raise it to be an ultimate chicken and together, we'd rule. c:

I was wondering that myself, absolutely nothing against you at all (love your works!) but I'm surprised they let your 'dark' artwork into a Children's Exhibit. Granted, there isn't any gore in either pieces, but I'm positive that Trash himself could give wimpier kids nightmares. 
Again, absolutely nothing against you at all, just curiousity. Congrats on the feature though!

Haha well I did worry at first but they invited me to it because they wanted something fresh and modern in the show :b The fact is that the kids were bored of the same old and safe approaches to telling stories. It was kinda true! When I was there all the kids saw the nice sweet stuff and kinda shrugged and then they saw this comic book! and it had these really different characters and the stories themselves have some nice morals and ideas about friendships. :D The kids were reading my stuff and saying COOL wow! and Aww poor Trash and Clash I like them! haha they didnt even get phased by the blood or violence in them because they could read into the stories and characters themselves! The ones who were actually more nervous and sweating were the parents because they open the book see blood and then close it without even READING it and giving it a chance...so sad. haha so yeah i understand the hesitation but I do remind the ones who say "this is not for kids" that I actually made these characters with I was 7 years old! I WAS a kid when i started drawing them heh....so Im not that quick to say kids are not smart enough to like these too. (Granted I was a kinda twisted kid with a wild imagination though....hahaha)

uuuhhhhhhh children's illustration exhibition? I love Trash and Clash, but I don't think their story translate well to children literature, unless you would be going for an angle where Trash is more of a bully than a murderer. But if you can make it work I will fully support it!

Comickpro Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
Haha yeah I already showed the comics to the kids and it was not changed in any way. And the kids all loved them, boys and girls! They fully understood the stories of friendship that they tell even if it was violent. The parents were the ones who were sweating and nervous! lol . But overall I had no complaints during the exhibition, and lots of kids read Trash and Clash with no trauma  :w00t: Sometimes we do not think kids are intelligent enough to see past the blood and horror, but they do understand more then we give credit and they see the morals in the story well.
