Artist and paranormal researcher

Douglas Egolf agreed to share this image titled Dark Moon. I hope he'll submit more of his work, I like it very much!

Art Cards on ETSY

 The Ghost Sheep of France, no.1 in series, mixed media on 3x5 card stock

Inspired by Richelle Hawks, who sells her handmade cards and jewelry on ETSY, I thought I'd give it a try as well. I used to sell vintage books on ebay and amazon.com (including a self-published book on Bigfoot!) I'm finding I have literally hundreds of books in the back room; no organization at all. I'm getting there. So on my Venusian23 shop on Etsy you'll find books and original art cards.

The art card (ACEO) shown is the first in a series. Other series to come:
  • Octopus Confessional Series
  • Episodes From The Journey Of The Orange Orb
  • Haunted Visits
That's what I have planned so far, but I expect to have more soon.

I like Etsy over eBay and amazon because it seems more personal and allows for individual and unique items; a nice place for artists who do their own self-expressive thing and less commercial and chaotic than eBay, etc.

Original Work by Richelle Hawks

WOE contributor Richelle Hawks, aside from being an outstanding writer of esoterica, makes jewelry using vintage beads and other materials. You can find her work on Etsy. 

(Richellealso contributes to Binnall of America, where she has her own column: Medusa's Ladder.)

I told Richelle not only is her jewelry unique and lovely (so many items I want!) but so are her descriptions, which are like little poems.

I stole this image from her Etsy site: The Face on Mars Red Hemp Necklace, shown here.

Richelle also offers original art work, handmade cards, (ACEO or "Art Cards, Editions and Originals")  like this one titled Mercy of the Deceived--Decameron Series, No.2.

On Saucer Blast!: "Are Flying Saucers Art?"

Are Flying Saucers Art?

I think so, what would be a good term for that, like steam punk is for that genre --- houses have been built using the UFO flying saucer motif/idea, buildings, furniture, lamps, etc.

Something about the classic round shape of an old fashion flying saucer; discs and domed spheres and all the rest...
