Anyhow, I stopped watching the VMAs because I think I'm now too old to really "get it," so I took the opportunity to write this post to sell some skateboard decks with my art on them: chromedome.deckpeck.com/

Only 3 decks up in my shop right now, but the art from all 3 come from my deviation gallery:

Go vote now.  Do it.  You know you want to. Go do it now.  Vote.  Unless you're not in the US.  Or you're not registered.  Or if you're a right-wing nut-job.  Everybody else, though?  Yeah, go vote now.
Well, I'm back after a long absence and I see that there are no less than 1,830 deviations on my watch list and 429 messages to read.  Yikes.  It'll take me a bit to wade through all that.  I'm hoping to get some work put up soon.  In the mean time, check out chromedomestudios.com chromedomestudios.com if you haven't yet.  Of course, that hasn't been updated for a long time either, but you can look through the archives and I'll try to have some new stuff up in the early Fall.  If you're new to chromedomestudios.com, basically I took Grandpa Sex Machine and started doing single panel comics with him.  I also got back to work on the Sin Police comic and put it up there, too.
Anyhow, gotta get back to work on the crap I actually get paid to do, so... later.
Oh, and I dig the new look of dA.
Well, the SantaLand Diaries www.lemmingarmada.com closed last month--Playback STL reviewed it www.playbackstl.com/index.php?… really dug it, so I'm feeling pretty good about that.  Of course, a review that comes out after the show has already closed doesn't do much for ticket sales, but still, I'm groovin' on the positive response.  The crowds really seemed to have a good time too.

Hope all your holiday celebrating has left you sober and healthy and ready for an awesome 2006.  This is going to be the year of Charlie, when all good awesomeness comes my way.  I'm stopping the pimping of each individual item I've got for sale--just check out my gallery and prints if you're interested.  BTW, I bought a set of those Angry P. Ale coasters www.deviantart.com/print/24005… for my bro Tim, and they look sweet as all hell.

Wini's surgery is scheduled for March.
Okay, so the SantaLand Diaries, the one-man play I'm in, opened last Friday www.lemmingarmada.com &nb… had to evacuate the building because of a small fire upstairs, but eventually returned and did the show.  It was reviewed www.kdhx.org/reviews/santaland… for KDHX, and while calling my performance "credible" isn't the same as saying "Charlie James is the awesomest!" please excuse me if I choose to interpret it that way.

cred·i·ble  adj.  1. Capable of being believed; plausible. 2. Worthy of confidence; reliable.

Dude compared me to Ray Romano and Andy Dick--that's gotta be worth something, right?

Anyhow, still trying to sell crap so I can fix my daughter's kidney:

Grandpa Sex Machine's Christmas Wish www.deviantart.com/print/82461… Many prints of various sizes and prices are available, including Postcards--perfect for Holiday Greetings!

Grandpa Sex Machine Hits the Beach www.deviantart.com/print/23722… Prints and Postcards available.

The Door www.deviantart.com/deviation/7… www.deviantart.com/deviation/7… www.deviantart.com/deviation/7… www.deviantart.com/deviation/7… Big and weird and all yours for a mere $3000, plus shipping and handling (no idea how much that will cost you--it'd help if you live in the St. Louis area. I can deliver for free if you live close).

NEWEST ITEM!!

Angry P. Ale www.deviantart.com/print/24005… The label for the homebrew Tim and I made. Available as posters, postcards, puzzles, and (most appropriately) COASTERS!
Wini's tests were brutal.  There's something about your 9-month old baby girl looking you right in the eye as you let a group of strangers jab her with needles repeatedly that I wish I could forget.  The test results confirmed what the Dr. suspected.  She is scheduled for surgery in March, so that gives us a little time to prepare for the next round of torture.  

Now, time for the commercial  (new item added below!):

If you see something else in my gallery that you want, make an offer and if I still have it we'll see what we can work out. I'm also available for commissions.
Will know more about Wini's surgery on Thursday.  In the meantime, I've added another print to my deviantArt Prints account--buy it so I can fix my daughter's kidney.

My "Sex Machine Hits the Beach"  www.deviantart.com/print/23722… pic has over a thousand hits, which is a pile more than anything else I've got in my gallery.  I edited the description to ask why, and based on the couple of responses I got, I'm thinking that people just sort of stumble upon it with various searches and see a thumbnail image where Grandpa's big toe looks a like a big... well, you get the idea.  They click on it just to verify what it is that they are looking at, and the number of pageviews climbs a bit more.  Anyhow, with all the people checking it out, I figured I should try turning it into a print.  Once again, a range of sizes for a range of prices are available, including postcards. www.deviantart.com/print/23722…

Also, there's still:

I hate to use the old cliche, "My daughter needs an operation," but I hate even more that it's true.

Anyhow, I need heaps of money, so here's some stuff for sale:

See where it says "Starring Charlie James?"  Yeah--that's me.  I'm awesome.
You know when you've got something important that you need to stash for some indefinite amount of time and you think to yourself, "I need to put this someplace special so I don't lose it?"  More dangerous words have never been thought.  90% of the times I go through this little ritual I end up forgetting where the heck that special place is, and yet I continue to do it--this time with the USB cable for the digital camera.  Now, I know it's not that complicated to go out and buy a new one, but I'm such a cheapskate, I'm having a difficult time convincing myself to go spend money on something that I KNOW is somewhere in my house, but since the only thing I know about its location is that it's not anywhere that would actually make sense, I might have to break down and fork over the dough.

Anyhow--long story short--I carved a couple pumpkins this weekend, but won't be able to get them in the gallery 'til I figure out my way around this dilemma.  Stay tuned for two more kick-ass-o-lanterns.
The bustling metropolis of Belleville, Illinois had an Art & Wine Walk last weekend.  Basically a bunch of businesses in downtown B-ville put some art on display, sold some wine, and handed out maps to all the other locations that were participating.  Pretty cool stuff.  I didn't get a chance to see everything, but I did have some of my stuff up at The Lemming Armada Theater Co. www.lemmingarmada.com &nb… the Door www.deviantart.com/view/780038… up, along with a Grandpa Sex Machine pic www.deviantart.com/view/418934… and some other stuff.  Seemed to get a pretty good response, too.  Didn't sell anything, so let me take this opportunity to remind you all that the Door www.deviantart.com/view/780052… is still available for the right price.  Buy it so I can pay my mortgage.
Do you have money, or know someone who does?  Are you looking for art to impress the neighbors?  Well I've got art, and I need money!  If you see something in my gallery that you want to buy, let me know.  If I've still got it, I'll give you a good price.  If there's something you want that's not in my gallery, let's talk commission!  Heck, if you live near me and just want someone to paint your house, drop me a line, maybe we can work something out.

I realize DA is a community more of creators than collectors of art.  If you know of any other resources for finding potential patrons to sell art to, please help a brother out and let me know.

Thanks!
If you've never heard Dan Reeder  www.ohboy.com/danreeder.html , you need to as soon as you can.  I've been listening to this CD all summer and still can't get enough.  It's funny, it's sad, it's this brilliant blend of folk, blues, and gospel that sounds like it's being sung by some genius elderly hillbilly.  The dude makes his own instruments, fer cryin' out loud www.ohboy.com/danreederinstrum… .  Just so you know, there are some explicit lyrics here and there.

I made a baby

Sat Feb 26, 2005, 10:16 AM
Well, I guess my wife helped a little.

Winifred Lola was born on Monday @ 9:44 am.  She was 9 lbs 3 oz, 19.5 inches long at the time, and answers to the name "Fred."  She looks a bit like WC Fields right now, but our son (now 6 yrs) looked at lot like Don Rickles at first, so I think we'll keep her anyway.

My brother-in-law Tim made me a kick-ass longboard for Christmas, and my mother-in-law holly14 painted this wicked Day of the Dead thing on it.  It RAWKS, but if I don't log in for awhile, it might be because I broke my hip.

Check it out here:  www.deviantart.com/view/150630…
Well, I got a DA Prints account--not because the world is begging for posters of my crap, but because I wanted a nice color print of Grandpa Sex Machine's Christmas Wish www.deviantart.com/view/131630… for my brother-in-law Tim for Christmas.  I'm doubtful that any more than the one I bought will sell, but if you've got some cash burning a hole in your pocket and you were looking for that special Christmas gift for your favorite feminist, you may be interested.
