I told you this week’s comic had a lot of wee lines and dots!
So, you know those Oaxaca style day of the dead skulls I’ve been making? I finally have one for sale and you can purchase it on etsy. Quite frankly, I could use the money, so please do! Just think if I get famous you can sell it on ebay for a lot more…AND if i get famous and die tragically you can really rake in a profit. Here’s a photo:
Buy it in my Etsy Store!
The best thing that happened to me since last week was Amanda Palmer tickets went on sale! You remember how loopy I was after the last Dresden Dolls show?! I’m freaking ecstatic! She is playing right here in St. Petersburg at the State Theater as part of the tour for her solo project Who Killed Amanda Palmer. YAY! If you live anywhere near here, you need to get tickets. Amanda is pure raw energy and beauty. When I listen to her sing it’s not only an auditory experience, it’s visual. You can sort of see her mouth and eyes through her words. Does that make sense? She puts emotion in each lyric…I’m not doing a terrific job expressing this – She just rocks, okay?! Don’t miss this gig and if you want to brigade or hang out outside with me before the show, email me. (Calan(AT)GingerDead(dot)com
And last, but definitely not least, I want to share with you the illustrations of Dylan Marvin. He’s not only a badass artist who I admire greatly, but he’s a dear friend of mine. He is an old close friend of Jim’s who popped up again after over 10 years. As soon as I saw his artwork, I couldn’t wait to meet him. I had a feeling we might get along swimingly. I was right. As soon as we met we couldn’t shut up and it felt as though he were MY long lost friend. You can check out his artwork and photography at DylanMarvin.com or friend him and view images on his MySpace. Also, on his MySpace you’ll see some video footage of how he does what he does. It’s all done in photoshop and he does it with a mouse! “No wacom!”, gasped I.
Here’s a few teaser pics.

Your haiku are food for my spirit, so write away and my eyes shall gobble them up and my spirit will belch and all will be well.
See you next week!
