Good morning! Just a note to say Happy New Year and Thanks for all of the support over the last…interesting…year. Let’s hope the interesting things about THIS year are not the interesting things about last year.
Stay tuned for some new works in new directions in the coming months.
In the meantime we have precious few STANDOs left from our first round of editions as well as CALENDARS (Perpetual in nature and good ANY year, EVERY year, and suitable for purchase at any time). Poster are also dwindling, which is a good thing, and they can always use your aid in dispersal hither and thither.
We are trying to package and process some of our Archival Stock into Sets to facilitate them away from us and closer towards you with the goal of bettering all of our lives.
As usual IF there is something that you are looking for that isn’t “Perl Jahm” (we don’t have any) please do write and ask about it. We are usually happy to replay in as timely a fashion as is possible and we don’t even mind reminders.
Thanks again as always and, again, Happy New Year!
TWO NEW ADDITIONS in 2022 to STANDOs: “Shelf-top Ensembles” our ongoing Online Art Show! (see below)
• RED BELLE • PHOOD
FYI • If Stock Runs Out, more will be coming. Hang in there OR feel free to send us a request to be notified when stock has returned. We can certainly hold a certain number for a certain number of requests.
For that Live Band experience when you can’t have the Real Thing. On your shelf next to the speaker.

Note: We anticipate some moderately extended period of packing and shipping so IF you would like to make a purchase from this show, please do so, and then relax and do some other things while you wait for your items to be delivered in fine and mellow fashion. We would like everything to go smoothly just as they have for the last year or so. No muss no fuss, and no real hurry to get anywhere. That is how we will all make it safely through to the wild chaos that is sure to follow. Making certain everything gets off and out to you will take a little easy time.
Questions can be answered. Subject STANDOS QUERY from (Your Name Here).
Start your journey back out into the world knowing that while we still can’t entirely enjoy a full fledged live music out in the world, when we come home there is a Shelf-top Ensemble: Cover Band waiting to play you just the tune you need to make every groove a smooth one.
YOU might not know, or maybe you do if you ordered anything in the last year apart from some STICKO orders that:
ALL ORDERS contained a personalized original piece of art inside. A hand drawn color (in almost all cases) cartoon on archival natural stock paper with the character upon crying out in vendetta the name of their greatest tormentor. If you ordered a tube and didn’t receive an OG card like this, you missed yours. Cuz it was in there.
SO we would like for each lovely customer who received their card to post their card art in a nice tight shot on their INSTAGRAM or FACEBOOK page with the accompanying hashtag #xogb19, #xogb20, #xogb21, or whichever date your card was signed. Often the hashtag is on the back but we might have missed a few backs.
IF you know a Friend who might have ordered or received something, let them know. We would like to see if we could grow the instances of these images across the socialsphere just to see what it might look like, all those cries for revenge.
Take them to your place. Give them names! Call them names! They’re your real friends, anyway. You can see just what they are full of!
Make any Drab Hab Fab!
Collect every sIngle one! Make a chart! Tell your friends! Slyly coerce them into the racket and then manipulate them against each other as you inexorably complete your collection! It’s just like real life.
