For the last week or more I have been feeling figuratively swamped (but not literally, we are still rain-free and drought-stricken) in several areas of my life, and I feel I have neglected my responsibilities here. This is a “Catch you all up” effort to show off some things I have made. These are all poster designs. I was not planning to make any of these images into posters when I started them, usually my posters start as possible GLP comics. If you haven’t guessed already, you should realize that Geranium Lake Properties comics are a wellspring and a hotbed of creativity for me.
The working title for this first one was “Quarter” but the universe insists that I call it “Fingersticks outside the carnival trailer”.
This second poster, along with the third one (below), helped me work my way out of a dispirited mood. I try to find other words than “depression” for my reoccurring malaise–this time I called it “the doldrums”. The title for the second poster is “Chrysanthemum Arrangements”. The third is “Mary, Queen of Mars”:
“This could be your name, no. 159” is my new, not-very-asemic signature, representing my intitials L C M T:
A number of people need to take responsibility for this last poster, title: “Koborlqyn Monstrance”. (Koborlqyn is a made-up name, you don’t need to google it, unless you want to find things to do in Kooralbyn, Australia.) Wikipedia, as usual, has to be blamed for quite a lot of the guilt, but John C. Nash is definitely a conspirator. Lee Skinner is a co-conspirator for showing off his cool tattoo on Facebook, which led me to read about the Ars Goetia and the Lesser Key of Solomon at Wikipedia. Another co-conspirator is the nefarious Jeremy Burnich, aka Your Daily Bread, who sent me a 3D-printed bread loaf (scroll down for the extraordinarily bad tutorial and tap the huge images with your cursor to make them smaller).
