We interrupt the normal order of things for a few announcements
Three new items now available, one for free, two for purchase:
1) DUBLAB invited us to participate in their new gallery project, entitled "Into Infinity" - The request was for an eight second loop. See the full list of 'ears' and 'eyes' here. We sent them Dinger. The exhibit has a cool gimmick: click the icon, and every time you click it again a different piece of art is randomly grouped with a different piece of looped music - all available for free hires download. The 'infinity' gallery was launched August 8, 2008 - or more appropriately: 08-08-08. More information.
2) NEW BRICK OF A BOOK: L'Horreur est Humaine - Vol.2 - No.1
The extremely cool French publisher Editions Humeurs just published a new heavy edition of "L'horreur est Humaine" - which we're pleased to say has a ten page Charlie Pickle piece in it, among some great work from Blanquet, Crumb, others. The entire book is over 400 pages, many in full color and printed beautifully on library-grade paper. Unfortunately this means it's not inexpensive, but the end product is a very stunning European hardback.

3) Blurred Books "Blurred Vision" No. 4
We'd be remiss if we didn't also didn't point you to this New York-based anthology which has been publishing excerpts of our A Dog and His Elephant story. Some stunning work to be found within, namely Toc Fetch, who is probably one of the finest and least appreciated comics artists of the last fifty years or so. Click for preview and order pages for BV issues #1 - 2 - 3 - and just released: 4.
Thank you, we now return to our regularly scheduled program of hysterical documents and other entertainment ...
