Of Course 2: Electric Boogaloo

Some kind of change to the plugin I use to aggregate the info that turns into posts on The Spinner Rack caused some of the posts that should have gone there to get posted here. After discovering the error, and confirming that it didn’t appear to be happening anymore, I deleted the posts. Of course, […]

Of Course

Update: The Supply Closet is back, baby! You can order these and other prints directly! I recently hit upon an idea for a series of pin-up pictures, featuring Bettie Page – who, coincidentally, would have been 96 today – cosplaying as different characters from comics, movies, TV, and video games.
