Wow! MY Santa is WAY more tasteful than that sleazy "Smilin' Bob Enzyte Santa" from the commercial! Thanks!

This more than makes up for the trauma I incurred whilst stumbling across NYD's CD cover. IMHO your "Blade Runner meets Al Pacino's "Cruising"" imagery captured the man perfectly! Bravo!

(Oops. I see that I've run out of exclamation marks, so I'll close for now.)

boxer: oh i miss lifelogger so bad. they made it easy to add a soundtrack and now look at how it is. your CD is still being worked on by elves at the north pole. stay tuned!

moi: i wanted to put a pit bull in a pear tree but you havent updated the bully pages in a long time. watch your mailbox!! ;-) and, thank you. i hope you do like it. that cross means to symbolize New Mexico in case you were wondering.

aunty: grrrrrrrherhahahahaha! Merry Christmas dear aunt. clearly wise men know the virtues of pork rinds.

K9!
What wonderfully generous Christmas gifts....I am uber impressed. These CD covers are graced with so much
goodness and joy. I love your Rotty wit expressed within the images too.
I howled at Bathasar, Melchoir and Gaspar bearing gifts of pork rinds!
Loved the comfort of the churches surrounding Troll on his Island, the MaydenElf was shining with seasonal delight and the golden shimmer of Diannes collage and Vanilles crafting were awesome.
The haunting images for Scissorhands, the belly salute of Shamu, the ornament ordinance for the PhoKid were tres enjoyable.
My favorite, favorite, favorite is the beautiful turquoisy, bluey, silvery, decorated! Christmas waters of the Pond.

You are a present to us all K9.

Merry Christmas and just know you are the recipient of a tidal splash of blogger love from
this happy Fishy!

As someone who photochops, I have to chime in on just how much work these CD covers take. If K9 wants to do it then I gladly accept the gift of imagination and humor in the spirit of which they are given.

thanks for the cd cover, it is super.

as for DOOM over there with comment on Woden/Oden, who loved Freya AKA Fricka who was the root of the word Fuck. Not sure of Santa connection, but wanted to throw that word history out there.

(Sorry Aunt)

But K9 knows about Freya ja?

We're not going anywhere for Christmas. There is a foot of snow at my house. Plus I have to work the day before and after so we're doing game hens and a movie theater for Christmas :)

There is a tattoo on my back. I've had it for years! I want another one, but it's big and expensive so not right now.

How's Christmas in Georgia :)

Merry Christmas Dog!

These are terrific. I love AB's, and Rev X's, and Mayden's, but then, I love all of 'em!

I was cleaning out my files the other day and came across a folder in which I had put some of your sketches (yes, printed off your blog) from long ago. Sketches of AB, Bird, and several others. Damn, the years are starting to pile up - how can this be?

The red-tail over smithgall hangs on over my fireplace - you are truly amazing.

have a great holiday!
