Dust off that bag of holly-jolly you've been stashing in the basement, 'cause Grey Bouquet's got a brand new holiday card available! Perfect for that non-specified, non-denominational festival day(s) of choice you may or may not have coming up soon. Whew. Think that covers all the bases...

On sale down at The Source, Magus Books, and, of course, on The Innernets.

Comics. Won't you?

Update over at DeviantArt! Two new gag-strip comics.

Third one's on the drawing board as we speak. ...As I type. You know what I mean.

Post-Con updates!

Big, sloppy welcomes to any newbies who've showed up here as a result of CONvergence traffic, and to the rest of you dandy so-and-sos as well! Now that yours truly's finally managed to shake off this year's strain of Con Plague, some updates are in order.

- Grey Bouquet is now on Twitter! Rejoice, O Internet: you can now read what wonders brew inside the mind of a sightless, voiceless chicken with no sense of hearing. ...Whenever Nugget manages to find the keyboard.

- DeviantArt update! Not able to make it to central Minnesota in time to grab the four GBQ promotional fliers mentioned in the last update? At least you can get a glimpse at the "buildable" picture that came with 'em.

- LOCAL STORE UPDATE! Shoppers at The Source, Magus Books, and Sacred Paths Center [contact info's available in the first blog post] can now pick up THIS stylin' source of skin protection:

* guy not included

Whew. That's it for now! Good game, everyone... let's hit the showers.

To any of y'all attending the CONvergence festivities this coming July 2nd-5th, there'll be an extra-special fetch quest you can go on, courtesy of the Grey Bouquet gang!

Like all the best stuff in life, it's not only simple; it's free. Just check out the Free Stuff tables for fliers of Amnio, Mister Bitch, Nugget, and Riddlyn. If you find all four, you can match the back sides to build a super-sized, never-before-seen Grey Bouquet picture! (Or, in nerdspeak: you can form Voltron.)

What's the final product, you ask?

Pff. Cheaters. Fine, have yourselves some teaser pics...

Take our word for it: It's Hiroshima-licious.

Do you like buying things? Sure, we all do!

Greeting cards are up for sale at GBQ@Etsy! One of each, for right now.

If there aren't six designs there by the time you see this, rest assured any stock will be relisted by tomorrow, when pins and T-shirts'll be there as well.

(They would all be up tonight, but it's past my bedtime, and yes, I really am that much of an old fuddy-duddy.)

Hey there, hi there, ho there! This here's Jonathan, aka Gerbil, emcee and general scribble wrangler for Grey Bouquet Designs. First post for the blog, too-- allow me to bring y'all up to speed, eh?

As you may or may not be aware, Grey Bouquet (or GBQ, for those among us who like not spelling things out) was brewed up in 2004 so that folks who prefer morbid humor and a more creepy-crawly kind of "cute" could find greeting cards they liked, too.

The first six card designs were on the shelves of a couple Twin Cities, MN stores by 2006. By now, Amnio and his Afterworld buddies have their own line of pins and T-shirts, too, as well as a much bigger (and debatably more hazardous) playground to call home: the Internet!

That's right, the main site's finally online! If you're wondering what this "Amnio" stuff I'm talking about is, go here first. Check out some Afterworld history, served up with a steamin'-fresh pile of character profiles. Edu-ma-cate yourself, already.

From there, you can find links to more free prizes inside: the GBQ@DeviantArt site's been updated with a series of concept sketches. Hopefully, the pics won't be there by their lonesome for long; I have a few 4-panel gag comics in the works, to be added once I get around to polishing the layouts lurking in my sketchbook. (Got a new temp job starting off today, too, but I'll do my best to balance business with a little pencil-pushing pleasure).

On that note: the greeting cards, pins, and T-shirts I've mentioned will be available online soon-like as well. There's a full catalog of item descriptions for the GBQ@Etsy shop sitting here on my desktop, albiet in larval pencil-on-paper form. Once I type 'em up and do the needed copy/paste shuffling, you'll be able to get some swank Grey Bouquet stuff delivered in the comfort of your own home. Youuuu comfy hermit, you.

Of course, for those of you in the Minnesota metro area, finding Grey Bouquet merch is easier than it's ever been. Real-life GBQ territory has only spread over the years, like a fungal bloom of warm fuzzies. Here's a rundown of which local distributors know a good headless chicken product when they see it:
