The Wall of Stuff continues to evolve.
Some of my recent (amazing) additions include:
- The Love of His Life by Cris-Art
- The Boy Who Waited by Robin Kaplan
- The Girl Who Waited by Robin Kaplan
- The Folly of Heroes by Robert Rath
- Adventure in the Great Wide Somewhere by Karen Hallion
The Wall certainly has come a long way in the past year. It’ll continue to grow as I add more pieces but I’m starting to run out of space. Clearly this means I’m going to need to move into a bigger office. That seems reasonable, right?
Uncanny Heroes of the 70s
So I grew up reading a lot of X-men comics, on top of my classic lit, children’s poetry, and British fantasy novels. It is only a small exaggeration to say that these characters were like family to me. Uncle Wolverine let me unleash my own wild side, uncle Nightcrawler taught me my first words in German, and Kitty Pryde could have been me! Or at least a long-lost big sister. So it was kinda weird when that movie came out in 2000 I had friends who thought Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine was hot and it kind of made my head explode.
Anyway, an awesome client commissioned the classic x-men team a couple years ago and I finally had time to add another to the series—my favorites of the cast added in the 70s! International, diverse, and full of their own plot-making flaws, these characters kinda saved the title from oblivion back in the day. And I guess Wolvie is basically an industry in himself these days.

Hey! That “awesome client” was me! I love the second version of this series and I need to pick it up as soon as possible.

Holmes and Watson in the London Fog
AKA the case of the missing mustache.
If you love the world’s first (and only?) consulting detective and his loyal (and only?) friend, perhaps this book-cover styled poster will tickle your fancy. There shoudl probably be more mustaches in this piece, but I’m going for a more modern ‘Sherlock’ look for the characters, while maintaining a bit of Victorian England in the mysterious background. If people would like a version with mustachio’d Watson, let me know and I will make one!

I’d love to know who the artist of this amazing Ramona Flowers piece is. Sadly, reverse searching on Google has finally failed me. Anyone know?
I’ve always been a big fan of the wolverine character (bonus for being canadian) and never found Cyclops especially interesting… But in my mind, if these two were to duke it out- wolverine would be a smoldering skeleton in 5sec flat. I mean, the guy just has to LOOK at him. kaboom. over-town.
thats just me.
