Hey, y'all, Happy New Year, Prospero Año!
I've been on deadlines, sick, cooking, and traveling . . . what have YOU been up to?
ALSO, I've seen some GREAT TV and MOVIES: I highly recommend BOYHOOD, THE IMITATION GAME, and THE COMEBACK, as the most recent stuff I've watched - also I rewatched (because they never get old) ALL of the Christopher Guest mockumentaries I could find: SPINAL TAP, WAITING FOR GUFFMAN, A MIGHTY WIND, BEST IN SHOW, etc.
I'm working on inking my latest submission to MAGIC BULLET, DC's comics newspaper, which we distribute at bookstores and comiccons all across the country.
I am working towards making my blog the most efficient thing it can be, work-wise for me, and communication-wise for you - I have 3800 followers on Pinterest (not really sure how that happened, but glad :) ), and about 2500 as Facebook friends, and about 800 followers on Twitter and a coupla hundred on Instagram, and about 500 LIKERS on my Facebook Laughing Redhead Studio page . . . I'd like to get all connected and . . . oh, also a coupla hundred on ETSY? And my ZAZZLE store, too, that needs to be updated (though there is lotsa good stuff going on in my Zazzle store already, according to my mom, who is my biggest fan!) gotta doublecheck that one. So, my goal this year is to get my site to where I want it to be. I'd like all my art to be in one very navigable place, and I've been so busy with deadlines and holidays that I haven't been posting much here lately. Soooo, you will see some weird reconfigurations and appearances on here - as I try to make sure I'm finding the most efficient designs for my needs as a writer/storyteller/artist. I have enlisted two interns to help me get my work loaded and ready for viewing/sale/discussion/whatev. I'm not a big fan of "buying" followers, or following folks just to get followed, so it's a slow, but genuine build, and I hope you'll be patient with me! I love Twitter and INSTAGRAM and PINTEREST, and I post a lot of pix of works-in-progress, as well as finished work, on all three of those, so if that interests you, check it out! Right now, I'm trying to figure out the best way to publish my horror stories and my "storytalks;" these are short true stories which I've "performed" in NYC at Gotham Comedy Club and the Metropolitan Room. Some have been published by big publishers, but I own them, so I'm thinking of publishing them here, and also printing them up to sell at the trade shows. What say you? Feel free to leave me a PM here, on Facebook, Tweet me, or message me on INSTAGRAM. Whew.
The safest bet is to follow me on Twitter and INSTAGRAM (is that showing up here? It was before I changed "themes"), and to LIKE my Facebook "Laughing Redhead Studio" page. I post there regularly. My TWITTER and my INSTAGRAM are both @LaughingRedhead. You would also probably really like my PINTEREST boards, I'm obsessed with them. Besides drawing and writing every day, the only other thing I do every day (besides drink Diet Coke and wear trifocals) is that I pin to my PINTEREST boards. Every. Single. Day.
I am also working on teaching a good bit of art this spring, summer, and fall, in addition to writing horror short stories and working on two horror/spooky graphic novels. May take up RED BULL.
peace y paz,
