Tomorrow, March 25th, is the birthday of the woman whose head I live in. An early birthday gift was presented which has brought me much delight.
This is Lenore, the Cute Little Dead Girl and she is sitting on the desk as I type this. The poor soul in the snake's belly is Ragamuffin, her sidekick.
Roman Dirge is the artist. He's created both a comic strip and short animations of Lenore and friends.
I have a love/hate relationship when it comes to Lenore. I really enjoy the illustrations, but the online impressions of the artist leave much to be desired. I'd actually given up completely as a fan of this character because I couldn't find any good leads on new projects or even merchandise.
The big bad Sony copyright machine closed the only decent site where you could get a good sense of Dirge's work (speaking of which, not sure how long that link I posted above will be of any use). I can understand wanting to control how your work is promoted, but the webmaster wasn't making any money off the fan site. More importantly, the artist himself is but a scattered presence on the Web.
