SB050- Sonic Boom Foppet – one of a kind!

Foppet needs a bit of background.  Foppet is a stylized horse sculpture, about 2 1/4″ tall and 2 1/2″ long, hand cast in resin and hand painted by Nora Echeverria Wright.  She is the equine companion to Poppet, Lisa Snellings’ iconic little sculpture. Poppets and Foppets love to “play dress up”, becoming one-of-a-kind (OOAK) sculpture pairs, as in this example.  But sometimes a Foppet will be released into the world without her Poppet companion.

Sonic Boom Foppet is only the third such OOAK Foppet, making her special indeed.  The inspiration for Sonic Boom came when I was talking to my good friend podcaster Paul Fischer about creating a piece of art for the Boom Effect auctions.  Paul said to me that a Sonic Boom Foppet would have to be loud, and I replied, it just has to be painted loudly, and at that moment, the fireball design solidified in my mind and i knew what to do.

Sonic Boom Foppet is eager to go to her new home.  A word of warning: Foppets love Poppets.  If you don’t already have a Poppet about, you just might find yourself acquiring a friend or two (or three) for your new Foppet! 

This set will be auctioned in the Craft items timeslot on February 27th and includes postage to Canada and the United States. International postage will be covered up to $10, and then be extra to the bidder.

SB049 Signed copy ‘Purgatory’

One paperback copy of PURGATORY by Tim Dodge. Originally podcast in 2009, PURGATORY tells the story of Charles Cunningham, a wealthy real estate developer who dies unexpectedly and finds himself in Purgatory, the place between heaven and hell. Though depressed about his early death, he befriends two other souls doing time there — the writer Edgar Allan Poe and a fun-loving beach bum named Billy. Upon receiving a letter from God telling him he must learn some unnamed lessons before he can go to heaven, he convinces Poe to join him in the portal back to earth. They hope to make up for their past mistakes, but they arrive on earth in the year 2049, 42 years after Charles’ death. Traveling from mid-21st century New York City to Las Vegas, Charles seeks out the daughter he neglected in life, though she is now in her eighties. However, an unfriendly soul from Purgatory follows them to earth. This soul, an employee with whom Charles had an affair and summarily fired, is determined to keep him from winning passage to heaven. She teams up with Charles’ grandson, a debt-ridden gambling addict who has a talent for messing things up. Together, they hatch a scheme to poison Charles’ daughter, foil his plan to get to heaven, and net the grandson badly needed life insurance money. Charles learns of their plans and enlists his friends to stop them. Will they succeed?

This is the first print edition of PURGATORY and is signed by both the author and cover photographer J.R. Blackwell.

I am auctioning off a part in my upcoming audio series “On The Edge Of Darkness”. This series is about a group of zombie hunters operating in a world where people do not believe in zombies but the zombie apocalypse is on the horizon. The hunters try to keep the the apocalypse from happening but soon learn that it may be inevitable and the zombies might be the least of their problems. The website for this project is www.ontheedgeofdarkness.com and I am planning on releasing the first episode in March.

The part I am auctioning off is for a two part episode where you not only will be killed off and be reanimated as a zombie you will get the honor of killing off one of the main characters, one of the members of the zombie hunter team.

Once the winner is determined I will get in contact with you and discuss the part. This will not just be a character with your name tacked on, I will discuss it with you and if you have the proper audio recording equipment (clean recording) you may even be offered to voice the part yourself.
