haiku card for a chompy pal

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

This is the latest haiku greeting card.  It’s kinda cool because it works for birthday, congrats, thanks, whatever.  Whatever is always good reason to celebrate.  It will be up in my etsy store by tomorrow afternoon.

Here’s some happy news:  The entire greeting card collection and several skulls are on their way to St. Louis.  I was contacted by the guys over at Cranky Yellow who wanted to carry some of my GingerDead stuff.  I researched the shop a bit and quickly fell in love with their approach.  Cranky Yellow is a store, a gallery and a performance space that embraces artists, DIY crafty folk, musicians, writers, actors, etc. The goal seems to be to give artists a space to do and sell their thing without raping them like a lot of galleries or consignment situations do. These guys are like me or you, they get it and they want to bring funky art to the community, earn enough to function happily and help artists do the same. 

If you’re in St. Louis, keep an eye out for upcoming performances like Dali’s Liquid Ladies – A Surrealist Funhouse or exhibitions like Crap Glued to Crap coming to Cranky Yellow in May.  Cranky Yellow is on Cherokee Street in St. Louis MO and is open Tues – Sundays from 2pm – 6 pm.  I suspect just dropping in and browsing the store is pretty fun in and of itself. 

That’s all for this week.  Your haiku are wanted, adored, admired and loved..as always, so don’t be shy.
