Monica Macquette, Petey Puzzle, and Amorph Family Foto
Submitted by Howard Tayler on February 18, 2009 - 11:43
Paul has recently partnered with a firm called â€œPatch Togetherâ€ to create figurines, and theyâ€™ve agreed to do a macquette of Monica Villarreal, the short-yet-heroically-proportioned protagonista from Wapsi Square. They just need 50 pre-orders to kick off the run.
If this is something youâ€™d like, too, hereâ€™s where you drop coin.
SECOND: Schlocker and jig-cutter extraordinaire Mark Smiley has created an authorized, one-of-a-kind 8â€³x10â€³ jigsaw puzzle based on â€œPeteyâ€™s Galactic Bath.â€ This is hand-cut from 1/2â€³ multi-ply hardwood, sanded oh-so-smooth on the back, with a laminate image on the front. If you want it signed, we can oblige. Itâ€™s up on eBay right now. Mark and I are going sixty-forty on this â€” heâ€™s the craftsman, Iâ€™m the hack with the big audience.
THIRD: As part of the LTUE fundraising auction, Mark Smiley and I are offering a second one-of-a-kind jigsaw puzzle, this time featuring the â€œAmorph Family Photo.â€ The auction is Saturday night, and yes, you must be present to participate.
I expect that by the simple expedient of a smaller bidding crowd this one will go for maybe a quarter of the price of the one on eBay, but thatâ€™s just me pulling numbers out of my [ahem] thin air. If youâ€™re local, looking for a bargain, and interested in supporting LTUE, weâ€™ll see you Saturday night.
