Some good news tonight. Heard through Adam Gorightly’s Facebook post that the book “Historia Discordia” has been ranked #1 on Amazon in the ‘Movements’ category.

From August 8th to September 7th, The Firehouse Gallery in Phoenix, Arizona there will be a Postcard Art show, featuring mail art from all over the United States, possibly internationally. My postcard is just one of the 156 + items that has been sent in. Tonight is the opening. All the postcard is affordable, and the proceeds will go to benefit the gallery’s recent maintenance issues.

Phoenix’s local Art Collective have gathering in The Firehouse Gallery for over ten years. It’s been a place for artists, musicians, poets, comedians and other performers to create and show their talent.  As stated on the event’s Facebook page, many artists have gained confidence and respect by starting up in this venue.

Here’s some photos of the postcard submissions:

This was the postcard I had sent to the show. Took one of my drawings previously self-published in Babalon Babes issue four back in 2009. This pin-up is supposed to represent the astrology sign of everyone’s favorite moonchild, Cancer. Then I applied mixed mediums to get this result:

Recently I’ve been mentioning this neat little cafe where I live, in Ridgewood. Ridgewood Queens, NY that is. Today this article came out and in the top photo you can see one of my comics as part of the display!

Which reminds me. In the article, what you’re seeing in the photo is an old Psycho Bunny issue. The recent one was sold at the time the piece was posted online. Below is an image of the last WitchesBrewPress release.

It should be noted that there’s very few copies of the recent Psycho Bunny issue left, otherwise known as #3.25. You can order it online here or through my Esty store.

The latest sketch I contributed to the Sketch Lottery website. Green Lantern’s Guy Garnder does the online dating scene.

Having a profile on OKCupid was the first thing that came to mind when Guy Garnder was selected as this week’s character. Especially since he seems to have this ‘machismo’ quality about him.

You can look at my sketch here.

Who knows? Perhaps the answer can be found by my rendition of Han Solo. The drawing has been posted on the website Sketch Lottery.

Threw in a few of the Cantina guys too.

Enjoy.  Be sure to check out the other artists’ work too.

My Esty Shop

Already blogged about this, but here’s a repeat. I have a shop on Esty under the banner WitchesBrewPress. There’s comics and original art for sale.

Unfortunately Babalon Babes issue four from 2009 (astrology issue) is now sold out. You can still purchase Psycho Bunny mini-issue #3.25.

As of this posting, it’s July 23rd, 2014. For some people, the number 23 holds a special meaning. Otherwise known as the ’23 Enigma.’

It’s been a very long time since I’ve done anything, art or writing wise relating to 23. It’s been a while since I’ve done anything relating to esoteric for that matter. (Stopped being active back in 2009) When I first started putting together my own self publish comics and illustration, I threw in a lot of symbolism. The number 23 was occasionally used.

I first heard of the 23 engima thanks to Re/Search Books back in the early ’90s. My first Re/Search book was ‘Modern Primatives‘ which talked about body modification and tattoo culture. This was way before the two subjects hit the mainstream. Inside the book was an interview with Genesis P-Orridge and his then-wife Paula P-Orridge (first wife). Genesis mentions the number 23 and the William S. Burroughs connection within this interview. This interview was also the first time I had learned about Aleister Crowley. So in a way, this was a portal of sorts.

Subconsciously, I noticed the number 23 more. My curiosity got the better of me, so I requested some information about T.O.P.Y. This is dating back to 1991 or 1992. When I received the magazine sized zine, it came with instructions on how to join TOPY. However at the time, despite the fact that I had already self-taught myself how to read tarot, and had dabbled slightly, this particular information was all a bit too heavy for me to deal with. My interest in anything occultist was pushed aside my until the early 2000’s.

Fast forward to the year 2006. I was in Lawrence, Kansas where William S. Burroughs spent the last ten years of his life. On an impulse I got a small tattoo of the number 23 on my inner right wrist.

These links might help explain the 23 enigma more here and here.

Ending this post is are old sketches. The first one is from 2005, very Psychic TV/TOPY influenced.  Looking back, I regret not initially going forward with the early instructions. Then again, I just wasn’t ready.

The second one was started in 2007 and completed in 2008. Believe this was published by AIN23 in 2009 or 2010. Would have to check up on that. In the meantime, enjoy and happy 23.
