Evelyn Evelyn, AKA Amanda Palmer and Jason Webley, recently released an animated music video to their track "Sandy Fishnets." The dark, haunting tune tells the story of the encounter between the conjoined twins, Evelyn and Evelyn, and tragic character Sandy Fishnets. The beautiful, flickering animation - which also includes amazing light painting - is a perfect companion to the song. Palmer and Webley chose director and artist Vince Mascoli to create the ...

For the past couple of years, I’ve been attending the MOCCA (Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art) Festival held at the Lexington Avenue Armory. There, I trade comics with other artists and revel in the geekery. One of my favorite things I walked away with this year was a print by Danish artist Rikke Bakman. (Her awesome bowl cut caught my attention.) She was as adorable as her drawings, not to mention super polite; she even signed my print with a little doodle ... Read More

Last month, I almost got to see Hunx & His Punx in Cambridge, MA. But being a college student with no car, I was cut off by the regional rail schedule and had to stay in the studio, cutting paper or something. Tears were running down my face. (Maybe.) I almost got to see Seth Bogart shake his hot buns in front of me. I almost got to admire the getup of the Punkettes live. I almost got to sassily yell, “Hello? Why are you calling me? I found someone new. ... Read More
