The Reindeer Express Corporation

For legal porpoises, by which I do mean the sea mammal, I wasn’t able to release these phony stocks and their associated company bookmarks until after Christmas. Either that or I’m terribly behind. If all goes well, I’ll actually print all of this out and send it to the people on my list.

In the meantime, I’ll describe this new never-to-make-a-profit/non prophet (no sense of the future) company: Earlier this year we acquired the rights to Santa & Co., a poorly financed, frivolously managed and inefficiently performing sole proprietorship. We’ve spent the last year revamping and updating that system and today we’re announcing the launch of new company, Reindeer Express LLC. Reindeer Express is now the only company to ship exclusively on Christmas Eve. We use a multitude of airships, blimps, airplanes and, of course, winged reindeer (as seen in our official bookmark) all working in concert to accomplish this. Our management will take this company in a very positive re-architected direction. 2008 will mark our entry into this new technology platform and management is very optimistic that it will be a tremendous year of growth, even including increased elf size if not jolly-man girth.

The above is an authentic faux replica of a fake stock certificate. Feel free to print yourself out a copy.

And please take a look at "Don't Feed the Howndders" on Gnemo's Sketchbook.

Please be advised that S. Claus is now under strict dietary management constraint and increased girth is not an option. Also pursuant to clause 168-b of the Copyright Infringement Act of 1832, be notified that Randolf (Randy) Little-Mann of Latitude 90 now retains the proprietary rights to the S.Claus name. Said rights having been acquired in a poker game held in a January blow-out in an indeterminate year. Happy New Year! Save a book for me please.

Sounds like the guy who drew fake money and tried to use it in exchange for meals, etc.

Off Topic: I ran across a book cover you illustrated from 1985 "The Year's Best Science Fiction: Second Annual Collection". In case you don't remember, here is the pic

We're not sure what we're seeing atop the World Trade Center. Could you clear it up for us? We would sure appreciate it.

Hi Tom,
I tried to contact you through your current email address but I don't know if this one is still working. Could you please contact me at openartist ((at)) gmail ((dot)) com? It's regarding a commission for the International Airship League.

Many thanks!

Tom! You have fallen off the face of blogland! I've been back east twice in the past month (once sorta close to your neck of the woods) and have met many artist heroes in the process. Am hoping that you reappear at some point - either in person, or at least virtually.

Hope you are well.
