research and other wanderings - see my website! There are comics and a store and everything: Hark! A Vagrant
The University of California’s English Broadside Ballad Archive is also a fantastic project, with a dedicated team making previously hard to find (on microfiche or in archive) broadsides available to everyone, and transcribed to modern eyes and ears.  Amazing.  What we have online is amazing.

Broadside Ballads from the Bodleian libraries hosts a great collection.  I am especially impressed by the fantastic illustration archive, divided into neat and specific categories.  Go look!

We put out calendars in 2012, and so many people have asked for more!  I didn’t have time to put out a flip-book type calendar, so I thought I would make a poster one!  In the style of those tea towel calendars.  If I can source some tea towels, I’ll do that.  But a poster is good too!  I will let you know when it is in the shop!
I made Red Riding Hood sketches along these lines a while ago, and I like Dorito Person Red Riding Hood.
Just a little dorito, going to Grandma’s house.

Thank you!

Thanks everyone for your great responses to Wee The People drawings over the past few days!  I know there were a lot of those posts, but your responses really help me out in figuring out what to make with them, and which ones to test merchandise things out on.  Plus it helped me fix errors, like the fact that Oscar’s carnation should be green instead of pink.  You’ll still be seeing new WTP’s, because they are fun, but with less intensity, because yesterday was our deadline for certain items for the fall.  The 12 figures that I polished up and colored are going to be on some things, and we will see how that goes!  I tried for a popular group with different backgrounds and interests, and you all helped a great deal in narrowing them down.  Thanks again!
