The Halloween Specials

Over the past 4 years I’ve published a few Halloween cartoon strips following a 5 part one the first year.

I’m not sure what I will be doing next year… then again, I didn’t know what I was going to do this year either!

Jack’s Tale

Jack’s Tale

They came for the small ones, the gherkins, and I said nothing.
Then they came for the larger cucumbers and the zucchini, and I did nothing.
The vegetable marrow and the summer squash went, and still I said nothing.
Then, the melons were gone before I could even think of doing anything.
The thumping thuds on the watermelons haunt me still.
Now they’ve come for my brother and me.
I scream silently as he cries, “They’re cutting into me.”
“They are scoping out my brains.”
I smell the ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon even as they carve a hideous face on my brother.
I smell the roasting of the seeds from my brother’s head even as the knife stabs into me.

Introducing the Characters — The Gnomestead

Vlad the New Tailor and Entourage

000-Cast Intros 050Vlad the new tailor
Is not an impaler
Unless you are considering his thumb.

000-Cast Intros 051Cossacks travel with him
Dressed in fine trim
Serving as protection and companion.

000-Cast Intros 052Not all who follow are male
Lady Cossacks fill the detail
Whether on horse or in the household they run.

000-Cast Intros 053Cossack riders can be impressive indeed.
They ride swiftly and can fight from their steed.
Their riding is almost like a dance.

000-Cast Intros 054Vlad travels in style, his carriage matches his taste.
Black is his favourite colour with red it is traced.
Cossack driver and footman complete his ride.

000-Cast Intros 055A tailor needs supplies.
Of course that doesn’t come as surprise.
A wagon to match his carriage suits his needs.

When stormy evenings arrive
The group gathers to jive
All around the fireplace they gather in fun.

000-Cast Intros 056Introducing a new arrival in town. Vlad the new tailor arrived with a bit of fanfare especially when Sir Biff thought he heard the fellow was “Vlad the Impaler”. After some intrigue things were straightened out.

Vlad was introduced almost a year ago in the short cartoon I wrote for Halloween called “Vlad!“. It is hard for me to believe The Gnome Tapestry is almost one year old.

Oh, That Yellow Brick Road! — The Gnomestead Tapestry

A Gnomestead Tapestry Short, looking forward to Summer:

013 Oh That Yellow Brick Road 00013 Oh That Yellow Brick Road 01013 Oh That Yellow Brick Road 02013 Oh That Yellow Brick Road 03013 Oh That Yellow Brick Road 04013 Oh That Yellow Brick Road 05013 Oh That Yellow Brick Road 06013 Oh That Yellow Brick Road 07013 Oh That Yellow Brick Road 08013 Oh That Yellow Brick Road 09013 Oh That Yellow Brick Road 10013 Oh That Yellow Brick Road 11013 Oh That Yellow Brick Road 12013 Oh That Yellow Brick Road 13013 Oh That Yellow Brick Road 14“Oh, That Yellow Brick Road!” Has more than a few similarities with “Go Ask Alice!” which I published recently. Once again Sir Biff is the central character. People in the South Cringle Archduchies suspect perhaps his helmet is too tightly padded.

I hope you enjoy this and share it around!

Thanks!
