Commission Drive!

**I'm just over half-way to my goal so I'm going to leave this post at the top for a few days...but the quote quiz is beneath it :)**


Without getting into a lot of detail...this last year has been a pretty tough year for me financially. And like a lot of people right now I'm finding my wallet stretched in ways I couldn't have foreseen even six months ago (lets just say the word overdrawn has come up too many times in conversation lately). For the last several years I have been getting the most exposure for my art at Chicago's big Wizard World comic book convention, but because of my financial woes I don't think I will be able to afford to pay the $300 for a table this year. This is a heartbreaking concept for me but I thought maybe you all could help me...

I need to make at least $300 in the next month so I am having a commission drive and until June 5th I am offering to do commissions at a reduced price! It's like one of those PBS drives only this one has a lot less Yanni and Josh Groban ;).

Commission Prices:
-11x14" color drawings $15 each (including shipping)

-11x14" Black and White drawings $10 each (including shipping)

-Artist Trading Card with fancy matching envelope $5 each (including stamp :)

The drawings can be anything you choose, no subject is too taboo, no request will be denied (within reason ;). I'll even draw Yanni if you want...but who wants that? I hear he cut his hair.



-I am also still selling issues of my Super Hip Girls comic $2.00 extra with any order or comic alone $5.00


-The Bombshell Sketchbook (a fun collection of sexy pin-ups) $4.00 extra with any order or sketchbook alone $7.00


-And I am also selling copies of my limited edition/ numbered Robot print (can you name them all?) $3.00 extra with any order or print alone $5.00


I accept personal check, money order and PayPal as forms of payment. Just contact me at ladygorgon@yahoo.com for questions or to place an order.

Thanks and you guys really do all rock and any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated!

Guess That Movie Week 90

The rules:
If you know or think you know an answer leave your guess in the comments section. As people guess I will grey it out and give them credit (using google to find the answers will disqualify you(...I know all and see all...), the person who has the most correct guesses each week will get a fun movie genius award to decorate their blog. Any person who wins 5 weeks (consecutive or non-consecutive) will earn a Movie Master award and must then refrain from guessing for 5 weeks.

Now the guessing:

1. "Can't you feel the vibes in your own house, man? Bad, sport, real bad. The karma in here is so thick, you need an aqualung to breathe." (The Thesp)

2. "I do know that for the sympathy of one living being, I would make peace with all. I have love in me the likes of which you can scarcely imagine and rage the likes of which you would not believe. If I cannot satisfy the one, I will indulge the other."

3. "When the wine drinks itself, when the skull speaks, when the clock strikes the right time, only then will you find the tunnel..." Tommy Salami

4. "You guys both got to stop perpetuating this myth that Boba Fett is some kind of bad-ass. All right? He has a jet pack. So did the Rocketeer. Really cool. When it comes time for battle, the man's Michael Bay - all style, no substance." (The Thesp)

5. "I'd do that. I'll do anything sexual, and I don't need a million dollars to do it either. I'm a nymphomaniac." (The Thesp)

6. "How can I describe it? Good food is like music you can taste, color you can smell. There is excellence all around you. You need only to be aware to stop and savor it." Splotchy

7. "Thank you for a memorable afternoon, usually one must go to a bowling alley to meet a woman of your stature." Splotchy

8. "This is great. First it was The Farm That Time Forgot and now this. Why don't I ever fall in with people who own condos? Probably hard to get good maid service in a sewer. Maybe you guys should try Roto Rooter, huh?" (Gabe)

9. "Is that you breathing? Because I can't hear myself think! There's too much going on here; you're asthmatic, you're a robot. And why the cape? Are we going to the opera? I don't think so." (Anon)

10. "Remember, concentrate on the moment. Feel, don't think. Trust your instincts." (The Thesp)

11. "I finally got lucky in love when I met Rosie here. She was discussing T.S. Eliot, and I was discussing... I still don't know what she was talking about!" Splotchy

12. "Jesus, I'm tired. I'm so fucking tired. You know how tired I am? If a girl came up to me and begged me to fuck her, I couldn't do it. That's how tired I am."

13. "Take the fucking elephant!" Splotchy

14. "For the moment, let them enjoy a calm sea, a fresh breeze and each other. The girl is pretty and I am always sentimental."

15. "Come on. Do I look like the mother of the future? I mean, am I tough, organized? I can't even balance my checkbook!" (The Thesp)

16. "Hiya kids. Here is an important message from your Uncle Bill. Don't buy drugs. Become a pop star, and they give you them for free!" Alex

17. "I think this building should be condemned. There's serious metal fatigue in all the load-bearing members, the wiring is substandard, it's completely inadequate for our power needs, and the neighborhood is like a demilitarized zone." (The Thesp)

18. "Why does everything I do sound like a leprechaun?" Reel Whore

19. "Hey lady - you want some fucking cheese? Get your own fucking cheese!"

20. "Wherever there's a hippie, there's a crime, even if that crime hasn't happened yet. That's what I always say." Revolverkiller

**Update** Sorry it's late but I've been busy drawing :) But we have a winner! Congrats to The Thesp on their third win! Way to go Thespy! YOu may collect your award below:

Geek Carnival 16


That is one happy Ewok.

Two crazy sketches from the sketchbook!

I have an art show coming up and while looking for pieces to display I found these two crazy gems amongst my old sketches. They are really wrong, but crack me up anyways...



This one I should explain. If you are a fan of Disney you can hardly watch a documentary or DVD extra without an appearance by movie critic Leonard Maltin. One Disney filled night I just got sick of seeing Mr. Maltin's face everywhere so I drew a cartoon of Len abusing Walt. I know this is really creepy...but well here it is. Imagine Len is whistling the theme from Steamboat Willie to get the full effect.

The eyes have it!

Tim tagged me with Splotchy's Eye Meme. To participate you are to post a picture of your eyes then tag some people to join in the fun.

I'm staring at you....

...I'm tagging you...
John
Tommy
M. Yu

The Tagging Meme

Dash MacBastard has tagged me on the Tagging Game!

Here's the complete list of the tagging rules...

The Rules of the Tagging Game are:
1) Link to the person who tagged you.
2) Post the rules on your blog.
3) Write six random things about yourself.
4) Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.
5) Let each of the six persons know they’ve been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
6) Let the tagger know when your entry is up

So here are 6 random things about me :)

1. I HEART Kim Kardashian...I just can't help it. she's just so darn cute!


2. 3 newish albums I can't stop listening to:
- Easy Come, Easy Go by Marriane Faithful (there is a fab version of The Crane Wife by she and Nick Cave that is just awesome)
-Fleet Foxes by Fleet Foxes (like a whistful, indie rock version of medieval music)
-Ode to Sunshine by Delta Spirit (upbeat soulful rock with a touch of early Beatles sound, surprisingly addictive)

3. If I were a guy I think I would want to be Lee Marvin. I'm pretty sure he's the coolest guy who ever lived.


4. My 2 favorite TV shows right now are Castle and Reaper. They are both so darn funny! And I get lost in the great story telling every episode but I bet they both get canceled before next season! That usually happens to the shows I love :(




5. I think ewoks are cool.


6. My favorite video game is Katamari Damacy, it's so much fun and the music just rocks! It does freak me out a bit that there is Katamari hentei though...
