Leroy is an optimist.
And clearly, he’s not done much home do-it-yourself construction.
I want to make an announcement that I’m going to be making an announcement this coming Sunday, March 1st. I figure an announcement like the one coming ought to be made at the first of the month… It has a First of the month feeling to it… so you’ll want to check in on that day…. the First of March… Sunday. Check back.
Harold enjoying a few beverages in Strasbourg back in January. Harold sure had a great time exploring the various places we visited. At this fine establishment, called The Stork, I enjoyed a tarte flambé … with Calvados and apples. I had to move Harold out of the way so he didn’t catch his little stufftie leg on fire. And for the record, I’d have the tarte flambé again! … and the Pernod, too.
So the latest issue of Art-o-Rama (zine) is about imaginary friends. I’ve had them. You’ve probably had them, too. For this “out of the box” 15th issue, you get mini comics. Mini comics are made from one 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper and cleverly folded and cut to make a little book. Last year I gave a little workshop on Mini Comics Day (held annually in March) at our local comic book shop, Current Comics. It was a hoot!
Are you Zine Curious? Been meaning to subscribe to Art-o-Rama and haven’t?… fear not… you can click the Etsy link on the left under the heading “Buy Squid Row Stuff”… once on Etsy you will find options… if you want to only buy this one issue (or others) you will find them there… or if you want to subscribe for an entire year… with or without the extra art option, you can do that, too! Or, simply contact me via the contact button and we can arrange a subscription there on email. 30 bucks/year… 50 if you want extra art with each issue. A real steal!
I want to share some sad news with you all, friends and members of my Squiddie community. We lost one of our own. You know her as Lady Jenn. She was a frequent commenter, as many of you know… and on February 3rd, she died of heart failure. I know that you will join me in sending Lady Jenn’s family our heartfelt condolences. We will miss her and her unique comment-ry.
Thanks, Lady Jenn, for being part of our Squiddy Community… it’s been fun and we will miss you!
