Guess who got her first modeling gig?  Ennui, that’s who!  Well sorta.  The deliciously dark online shop Obscuria asked me to do an illustration for their website’s homepage.  It will be up for the entire Halloween season.  Ennui went all out and dabbed on a bit of blood splatter for the occasion.  (awwww)

Visit their site to see the artwork I did and while you’re at it buy some stuff!  For those of you drooling at Obscuria’s unique goth merchandise, there is a storewide 15% sale on now.  The coupon code is in the illustration.

I’ve been ridiculously busy and will be releasing some new goodies soon plus am working on two super secret GingerDead related projects.  I apologize for the brief post and sort of rushed comic this week but time is not on my side at the moment.  In fact, I have to run.  Jim’s been invited to perform with a big band and the show is tonight. I forgot to eat again today, so I should probably do that before I head out.

Have a great week and thanks for reading and haiku’n with me.

    I can relate to the no time. I’ve started a second job that keeps me out till 2am most nights and I still get the lovely priveledge to wake up at 7am with a very clingy toddler.

    Stress level high need
    a break to read favorite
    web comics, Good now

    i’m the same way. keep out, danger, no trespassing, adults only, private, anything like that peaks my curiosity. inquiring minds want to know. besides, i like getting away with things. the danger aspect is exciting (while avoiding real danger).

    sneak around corners
    something i shouldn’t have seen
    oh! where’s the toilet?

    not sure what you’re asking stinkoman. it’s reads from left to right.

    ugh amanda! that’s way more than i have on my plate. i should quit whining, huh? hehe. i’m actually really happy about everything i’m working on so not whining, just wish i had more hours in the day or more hands or something.

    you and me both sera. curious kitties are we.

    thanks gabe. 🙂 i hope leNoir gets some more print ad work for her modeling portfolio. hehe.

    Well it took me a while to see this weeks installment. I am sick at home and this is one nasty little bugger. First chance i have had to get out of bed and do something constructive. Well enough of my probs. Glad to hear things are busy for you but forgetting to eat….will not do. Can you feel my stern face coming through?

    Speaking of curiosity….new goodies and two super secret GingerDead related projects? ARG! The tease is nearly too much. Feels a bit like childhood and waiting for Christmas to finally get here. Can’t wait.

    Ha! I love the art for Obscuria. LeNoir is such a natural isn’t she?

    Despite the danger
    or maybe because of it
    we just had to see

    Nothing matters less
    Happy for whatever end
    When i am with thee

    Well that’s it for me. Have a great weekend!!!

    OH BUGGER! I just thought of something better for the last line on my haiku right as i was posting it.

    Replace her with thee. It reads so much better that way. DAMN it all!!

  8. Seraphine Says:

    i’m sorry matthew that you are sick.
    great haiku, though, with thee.

  9. calan Says:

    sorry you’re not feeling well matthew! hurry up and get better, damn it!

    bw, i used my super powers to make your haiku read the way you intended. 🙂

    killed the cat, is what “they” say
    who listens to them?

    This comic also reminded me of the first haiku I ever encountered, many years ago in an old novel set in post-war Japan:

    you only live twice
    once when you’re born, once when you
    look death in the face

    Curious Kitty
    Stuck her nose wrongly inside
    Barely escaped That

    Simple Missive Said
    Do not tread upon this site
    Crept in anyway

    The trap was baited
    Foolishly I crept inside
    Only to run hide

    ya hours in the day would be nice so i could actually spend some time with my boyfriend but me working at nights is gonna help when i can move his butt down here. I wound up in the hospital sunday morning i thought i broke my ankle at work but its just terribly sprained and all black and blue and swollen i’m not allowed to walk on it or the doctors threatened to cut it off. The good thing about the night job is its terribly easy i get paid $10 an hour to scare people who could ask for more?

  13. matthew Says:

    Nice! Thank you much for that change. I think it reads better that way. 🙂
