So Halloween is fast approaching so here's some creepy/funny/weird links I'm going to pass on from various internet wanderings.

Ten Writers That Probably Will Haunt You - Oh, you've got the Gregory Maguire poltergeist! See, this is a ghost who jinxes your favorite childhood books and makes everything have weird sex.

Creepy 1700s sculptures - Passed onto me from my sister. Supposedly the artist in question made these (damn awesome) to protect himself from evil spirits. I can almost believe that.

Obscura Antiques and Oddities - A curiosity shop in New York City. You want tiny polio braces, false teeth, government property emergency water, skulls and taxidermied critters of dubious origins? Of course you do.

Selina Sedilia - Dare I reveal to him that I have two legitimate and three natural children? Dare I repeat to him the history of my youth? Dare I confess that at the age of seven I poisoned my sister, by putting verdigris in her cream-tarts,--that I threw my cousin from a swing at the age of twelve? - A favorite gothic short story of mine, it has everything; murder, ghosts, secret marriages, and horrible accidents.

While not really Halloween-y I am currently obsessed and must share the ear worm The Mariners Revenge Song by the Decemberists - I'm going to excuse it for not being in the Halloween mood due to the fact it starts off with two guys in the belly of a whale.

Okay small post this week, been busy with con prep/organization and pseudo nervous break downs. My random sketch pages are not worth sharing so have some odd somewhat more focused doodles.


Not sure who this person is, I just doodled this for brush pen practice.

and one more behind the cut )


Once again a reminder, for those in the Houston area I will be at Oni-Con. I'll be in the Artist Alley sharing a table with friends. So if you can drop on by, say hello, I'll be the red head in the bowler hat and goggles.
