mister joe black

Joe Black

The neo-vaudevillian, the real life Disney villain,
the gin-addled courtesan, the anti-christ of cabaret
and the one and only waltzing cynic…

Eccentric to international stages,
Joe Black takes to shows in an almost cartoon-esque
musical assault,
sweeping the audience through deathly showtunes,
stomping polkas and heart wrenching ballads.

Though seemingly unable to fit into any particular category,
Joe Black has shared a stage with many notable names
from different stretches of performance,
musical acts such as Amy Winehouse, Gary Numan,
My Bloody Valentine, St Vincent, Noah And The Whale,
Hadouken and Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly

and those, of a more performance art and cabaret nature,
such as Empress Stah, Dusty Limits, Anna Fur Laxis,
Beatrix Von Bourbon, Vicky Butterfly, Scottee,
Des O’Connor and many more.

With a huge array of events, such as Torture Garden,
Bestival, The Edinburgh Fringe Festival and
so many more under his belt…

Mister Joe Black (armed with an accordion, a piano,
and a voice with force like no other),
Is ready to give you a show, that years of therapy
couldn’t even help you forget.

We’re very concerned…

Arthur Rackham

Two girls were once forced to spend the night in a stable.
They were so tired that they immediately fell
into a deep sleep, dead to the world.
When morning came, they found that a Lutin had visited
them in the dark. Their hair was so tangled and knotted
that it was impossible to comb out.
All their 'lutined' locks had to be cut off.

Simply unruly,
blasted sounds.
Creeping round corners,
until they are found.

Jo Lynn Alcorn Paper Art

"A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design,
I first worked in magazines in New York City,
as an art director and art buyer.
In the early 90's, I began doing dimensional illustration,
an outgrowth of a love of collage and paper.
My work has found many applications,
from children's wallpaper designs to floral murals
in a department store in Beijing.

I have been fortunate to find interesting work abroad,
especially in China and Japan, where there seems
almost to be a cultural affinity for my paper creations.
I am represented in Japan by Taiko & Associates,
and in France by LT2.

I have just completed a large staircase mural
in the Kips Bay Showhouse in New York City,
in collaboration with Amy Lau of Amy Lau Design
and Laura Romanoff of Maya Romanoff Wallpapers.

As a personal project, I have been working on a collection
of fantastical butterflies and insects,
made of paper, naturally."

the moths of ernst haeckel

Ernst Heinrich Philipp August Haeckel
February 16, 1834 – August 9, 1919
His name is also written von Haeckel, an eminent German 
biologist, naturalist, philosopher, physician, professor, and 
artist who discovered, described and named thousands of new 
species, mapped a genealogical tree relating all life forms, and 
coined many terms in biology, including phylum, phylogeny, 
ecology and the kingdom Protista.  Haeckel promoted and 
popularized Charles Darwin's work in Germany and developed 
the controversial recapitulation theory, "ontogeny recapitulates 
phylogeny", claiming that an individual organism's biological 
development, or ontogeny, parallels and summarizes its species'
entire evolutionary development, or phylogeny.

The published artwork of Haeckel includes over 100 detailed,
multi-colour illustrations of animals and sea creature.

lithium picnic

Lithium Picnic

...in the dream

there were lots and lots of avenues,
people with powdered faces 
larger than life hair,
or no hair at all.
pushing around at two-thirds their height,
crouching with red lips and joy in their heart.
"stand up. walk through the avenue and meet the guests."

i needed a nap.

womens institute underwear 1925

Lingerie Book Sew FLapper Underwear Making Sewing 1925
"The right foundations for one's outer garments play such a vital 
part in their success that undergarments have acquired a place 
of importance in the wardrobe. The sort of underwear to select
for various types of costumes and for different figures is a matter 
requiring as much careful thought as the costumes themselves. 
Then there are the many varieties of sleeping garments, bathrobes, 
kimonos, and negligees, into the selecting and making of which a 
woman has an opportunity to express much of her feminine charm."

Dakota Prairie Treasures re-publication of the original flapper era 
sewing guides and workbooks, the Women's Institute of Domestic 
Arts and Sciences: Underwear and Lingerie: Part 1 and 2 with
instructions, diagrams, photos and line drawings for the 
undergarments.  It includes information regarding the materials used, 
decorative touches, laces, ribbon work, and even color suggestions.
