GingerDead and Friends is a weekly webcomic that revolves around a gingerbread boy, his odd silent skeletal girlfriend and the sister who wants him dead. The comics are often done in haiku and readers are encouraged to respond in the comments area in haiku.

Calan Ree’s work is often described as dark humor or gothic, occasionally even twisted, but if you look a little closer you’ll find it can also be thoughtful and hopeful. Drawing from personal experiences such as love and fear as well as topics that intrigue her such as science or strange facts, Calan Ree combines words, characters and a bit of wit to describe her world. She hopes her readers can see themselves reflected in her comic and that as a result they find themselves smiling.

Calan Ree is a visual artist living in St. Petersburg FL. You can view Calan’s artwork on CalanRee.com including illustrated jewelry, finger puppets, day of the dead art dolls, GingerDead Greeting Cards, etc. You can purchase some of these items through her Etsy store.

Look for me on Facebook or Twitter I never check the MySpace account.
