Rotting Tuna… yah, that’s perfume to cats… that MAY be what got Twinkie in trouble in the first place.
The comic strip, Cul-de-Sac, has been around since 2004. It was syndicated in 2007 and ran until 2012. It wasn’t in my loop of comics readership… but that’s about to change.
This short documentary on the cartoonist, Richard Thompson really touched me. As the video explains, he is succumbing to Parkinson’s and had to stop his comic strip, Cul-de-Sac. Having seen the work Thompson has done, and the skill with which he cartooned, he makes me want to be a better cartoonist.
It’s twenty minutes long. Make some time… you won’t be sorry.
Well, last weekend’s Make & Bake was a big success!
The awesome folks at Somos do such a good job every year. This was the fourth year of M&B and the first year it was a 2-day event. The live music on the Somos Stage was exciting and fun to listen to… and the vendors were fun and diverse. So thanks to Will and Imelda for a job well done… and thanks to those of you who came and visited the Squid Row table! I have included a photo gallery (photos by Peter) for you to peruse.
Now onto some Squid News!
I am currently working on the holiday edition of Art-o-Rama… entitled Holiday Fun & Games. I am having so much fun with this issue… it will be full of silly things to enhance your holiday experience and also to distract you from the usual craziness… I encourage you to procure a copy for yourself… either by sending me an email saying “RESERVE ME A COPY NOW, DANG IT!” , or …by ordering up an issue on Etsy… here’s the link…
ALSO, TOO… you could get a subscription to Art-o-Rama for yourself or as a gift! It’s a great deal that comes right to your mailbox! You don’t even pay for shipping! You can do this through Etsy as well… (or email me through the contact on this site!)
If you live in the Salinas or Monterey area, and you like crafty stuff …. you don’t wanna miss this fun event in Oldtown Salinas. It also happens to be First Friday. I will have a table set up with new hand drawn buttons, book specials and, of course, Harold will be there!
The Weekend was filled with Spooky happenings and Halloweenish Hullabalooing.
Current Comics hosted their HalloweenFest… giving out Free Comics and hosting this silly artist as a paint-slinger. Here’s a ghastly gallery of photos…
And speaking of a ghastly gallery… there were a few spirits floating around our Haunted Kitchen… I donned “my Randie wig” (a gift from Peter “stick” a while back)… and under the guise of “our starving artist hero”, made merry amongst our small soiree of guests.
