Where is it..?

Georgia O’Keeffe, Jawbone and fungus, 1931, oil on canvas

I stared at this fucking painting in the gallery for a half an hour this afternoon, and I still couldn’t see the vagina. Do you have to cross your eyes like one of those “magic eye” drawings? I can’t figure this lady out. I guess I just don’t “get” art.

My “comicskine”. Let me show you it.

Recently I’ve been hand-making these little grid-paper notebooks, using my old comic books (reinforced with thin cardstock) as covers, and giving a few away to friends and such. They’re 3.5×5.5in and have 48 pages each, and are obviously one-of-a-kind.

So if I were to, say, make a large quantity of them and then sell them in packs of three, would there be any interest? And if so, would $12.00 for a 3-pack seem reasonable?

Lil’ Edgar

Awesome little “Coobie” paper cut-out model. Download the file and construct your own. Put him on your monitor and let him tell you lurid tales of miniature Gothic horror. Hours of fun!
