You may have felt that something was missing from last week’s turkey themed haiku comic. You were too polite to point it out, but it loomed over us all. The comic lacked STUFFING! Unless there’s stuffing, it’s not really a Thanksgiving turkey (or in this case Thanksgiving-Turkey-Haiku-Comic). I’m sure your Thanksgiving was ruined and you had nothing to be thankful for and while it’s too late now, I just had to deliver some stuffing this week or I’d never forgive myself. So, happy Wednesday. Here’s your stuffing. I hope you don’t choke on it. It’s a bit dry.
Well, I managed to get the elf done in the nick of time for the Black Friday art show. I was literally spraying him with protective coating like 5 minutes before I had to leave to drop him off. I made the deadline by 10 minutes. He was worth every long hour and last minute stress out. I love him and I got a really wonderful response at the opening. I wrote a bit about the back story and inspiration behind this creation on my art blog if you’re interested: (Forgotten – the Tiny Toy Maker) In case you are too lazy to click, here are some photos of him.
This next photo freaked me out a bit at first because it appears that he is turning his torso and neck at you…and well, he is a rigid wall hanging that shouldn’t be able to turn at all. I think I know why it appears this way, but at first glance, it just doesn’t seem possible. Plus, he looks kinda gangsta and creepy in this photo and usually he looks rather forlorn. Anyway, it’s my favorite shot of him.
So, that’s what I’ve been up to lately. That and getting ready for some upcoming shows. This Sunday I’ll be at Studio@620 on 1st Avenue South downtown St. Petersburg for the Holizaar holdiay handmade art show. It runs from 11am – 5pm. I’ll have some finger puppets and art dolls as well as GingerDead greeting cards, comic prints and of course loads of illustrated and sculpted jewelry.
The following weekend I’ll be in Sarasota at Atomic Holiday Bazaar.
Before I go, I have to share with you my new favorite online indulgence when I need a laugh. I usually hit Regretsy, but sometimes that one, as funny as it is, also makes me sick because people are so stupid and some of them try to pass off crap they bought wholesale as handmade…I digress….so this new site just makes me laugh like a maniac. It’s so silly, but it kills me. DamnYouAutoCorrect.com (thanks Darien for turning me on to it!)
Ciao for now. See you next week unless I feel super selfish and mean and choose to make some readers cry.
