star struck

Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

Another mini painting in the star series.  You are, as always, invited to write a haiku to accompany the art.  I kind of like doing these wordless ones on occasion since it leaves the haiku’n completely to the reader.  Or, perhaps I’m just lazy.
Actually, I’m anything but lazy these days.  This last week was spent painting skulls, doing another painting (not photographed yet) and designing cd art.  I’m kind of worn out but I still have a bunch of printing work to do as well as turning these skulls into wall hangings and I had hoped to do another painting which I have done in my mind but have not yet applied paint to the canvas.  Did I mention I’m supposed to have a zombie or monster oriented outfit and make-up ready too?  I haven’t even gotten to that yet, but I’m not bad at throwing that sort of thing together last minute.

Johhny Vitale’s The Monsters of Art Show is Thursday at 8 pm at the Garage on Central Avenue in St. Pete, FL.  If you are a local, this is the place to be Thursday night.  I promise.  The sexy Garage girls are getting zombified via body paint plus there will be monsterific art aplenty.  If that wasn’t enough, they have these sake bombs that taste like Christmas…
I have no special Halloween comic this year for you, but check back on Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead (November 2nd) for something special.  🙂  I hope you all have a kick ass Halloween and Bright Blessings to those of you celebrating Samhain.  When is someone going to dress up as a GingerDead character and send me pictures?  That would win you some GD goodies for sure.  😉

For you myspacers, I’m there now too so if you want to be bffs or whatever – www.myspace.com/calanree

That’s all for now.  Remember to check back on Sunday for Dia de los Muertos fun.

    Struck through the heart, Ouch.

    it burns through the flesh
    gaping hole and searing pain
    a wish gone amiss

    I wished Lenoir would
    Come and steal my heart away,
    I guess I got my wish.

  7. justme Says:

    what is this feeling?
    is it true love or just a
    bad case of heartburn?

    Nice job as always. I hope your Halloween is a blast.

    Sorry for the late posting. Work has been insane of late.

    A skeptic was i
    Not careful of what i wished….
    “I wish for the stars!”

    One should find good luck
    while picking up a penny.
    Was it a bad one?

  10. Seraphine Says:

    maybe it was a pretty penny you found.
    you can buy nice things with a pretty penny.

    Have you gotten any of your paintings in a gallery yet?

  12. calan Says:

    aw thanks roxymotion and welcome

    satan or god: i have had some paintings in a gallery in eire but completely unrelated to comic. last night at the monster show i met someone from a local artspace that said they would def like to show my work which is awesome. i really just started on the gingerdead/comic related paintings so i’m hoping in a couple of months to have a nice little collection and we’ll see what happens. 🙂 i really like your site btw. you’re inklings are awesome.
