leftover fun

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

So, it took about a week longer than I anticipated, but I finished the elf wall hanging. I’m going to hold off on posting photos until after the show. If you are in the St. Pete Tampa area, meet ‘Forgotten – the tiny toy maker’ along with the works of around 50 local artists, plus a fashion show and live music at the Black Friday Event held at the Vitale Studio and the Local 662.



Okay, so how about something fun that you can have a laugh at with your loved ones over the holiday weekend? I’m going to leave you with some creepy vintage ads (yay!) and (this is for you Matthew) a link to a whole bunch more creepy vintage ads! Happy Thanksgiving!

Even pigs can't resist delicous pork!

What the hell does this question have to do with selling me a postage meter?


Apparently, murdering women isn’t enough. Some people have to turn them into rugs.


I don’t know about you but I’m not store testing for freshness anymore! Rawr!


If I wasn’t scared of clowns, I’d ask him what’s really in that cup.


Here’s a couple of places to find more of these old creepy ads:


Retro Comedy
– there is one here that is too disturbing for me to even put here. It’s for Luv’s baby soft. Seriously, wtf?!

Eat Liver

Need a 12 minute escape from your annoying relatives? Watch Drew Daywalt’s new short horror film Polydeus – When a pair of gamers get their hands on a legendary video arcade game from 1981 with a dark and sinister past, they accidentally open a world of mind-bending terror and hallucination. Features another incredible Jeff Farley creature!

See you next week…or the week after. Going away for Jim and I’s 3 year anniversary. 🙂

    I love Gingerdead, but I am about to stop coming to this site. It makes me sad because it is so funny, but it only gets one new comic like once a month now, I mean, I know that people get busy, but is it really that hard to put up a comic more then once a month? I am not trying to sound like a jer, I am just saying.

    hey josiah,

    Sorry missing an update makes you sad, but I’d rather give you guys a decent comic, then a crappy half-assed comic because i’m running out of time and don’t want to miss an update. Is it really that hard? Well, yes actually it sometimes is. I spend 4 – 6 hours from conception to comic creation and writing the blog. Sometimes I can’t spend that time on the comic because i’m having severe wrist pain and other times i just am out of time because i have work and other art that i’m equally passionate about. This is a labor of love, if I start treating it like a job, I’ll resent it and the comic will suffer.

    I’ll continue to update as often as I can. (which by the way has never been only once a month in the 4 years i’ve been doing it)

    The past few months have tapered off from 4 updates a month, yes but not down to once a month:

    July – 3 updates
    August – 3 updates
    September – 2 updates
    October – 3 updates
    November – 2 updates

    It’s nice that you like it that much that it would sort of piss you off when you don’t get a new comic. I think that might be a compliment, so thank you.
