strike two

Wednesday, February 7th, 2007

Thanks everyone for your haikus last week. Those really made me smile. 🙂 I feel like I have the coolest readers on teh interwebz.

I think I mentioned getting some polymer and sculpting clay a little while back. At some point I would like to do some dolls/figurines/whatever based on the comic. Recently, I noticed a new advertiser on the site who does some really awesome hand painted dolls in the spooky/cute style that I love. Her stuff is really worth checking out. Have a peek at Spookbot.com and see for yourself.

In webcomic news, I want to send a big congratulations to Chris Hallbeck of the Book of Biff whose made it to the nominees of the Comic’s Choice Awards. If you are a comicker registered to vote, consider Biff for best single panel. Good luck Chris.

Today’s comic is part of a tiny story arc. Check back on Wednesday (Valentine’s Day) for more. See you then.

    That gingerdead is one smooth cookie.

    Yeah, not having fingers makes life difficult. My characters know that personally…

  9. Xi Says:

    Nothing better than a bit of good ol’ weird fluffiness early in the morning!

  10. Manda Rae (Morbid) Says:

    I love it!
    It is quite sad though.
    I hope they get together!
    I dunno why.
    I suppose I just love Lenoir.

    Gingerdead’s gonna get lucky!

    And by lucky, I mean he’s going to get his face impaled. Which is pretty hot, if you think about the imagery it evokes.

  12. calan Says:

    poe: who needs paper when there are walls and bodies about?

    katie: thanks. your blog is pretty cute too. 🙂

    Xi: i prefer the term fluffy weirdness, but glad to be part of your morning just the same. 😉

    Manda: stay tuned, things might just be looking up…or not.

    Evil: you always say the sweetest things. it’s nice to have you around.

    This has everything I come here for – pathos; humor; a reference to “The Scream;” simple but highly expressive imagery; and a paranoid feeling that you’ve been watching my life for inspiration.

    At least poor Lenoir has her spiders to commune with while she waits for Gingerdead to get a clue, and he has his almost pathological optimism to see him through. Maybe one day they’ll work it out. In the meantime I’ve a feeling they’ll be providing us with plenty of voyeuristic entertainment. I feel a little dirty but it won’t stop me coming back.

  14. calan Says:

    wow, thanks for the comment justme. your take on my work is dead on and makes me feel all fuzzy at the thought that i’m not just making it for myself.

  15. Marcus Says:

    Aww, Lenoir looks as happy as a skeleton can! Although, a gingerbread cookie and a skeleton dont make a very good pairing…

  16. calan Says:

    says you 😛

  17. coolioness Says:

    Gingerbread…er…GingerDEAD cookie and skeleton pairing…


  18. Amber Says:

    I thought Her name was Ennui?

  19. calan Says:

    hi amber. it used to be leNoir two french words meaning ‘the dark’ but no one would pronounce it right ( le nwah) and there’s already a lenore character in a similar genre so i decided to change it to Ennui. Ennui is a name that was associated with me at one time and is also one of the ways a child dies in Edward Gorey’s (one of my favorite artists) book Gashleycrumb Tinies, so it suits her really well. i changed most of the comics, but i guess i missed this one. putting it on the never-ending to-do list. thanks for noticing!
