Party Signs....

I've got a weird tradition of doodling signs for any party we end up having. While I'm still hurting from the party, I figured I'd share a few of the pieces that I used to label the door as well as the men's and women's restrooms.

Signs that scare or confuse your guests are always a good thing.

I bumped into the opera section of your site and may I say : What a riot ! Your operatic cartoons are just amazing.

I'm an opera fan and I write regularly about operas and artists I like on my weblog.

May I show some of your pictures on my blog, I will put a link to your page each time.

Juju, I would be honored (or honoured even). Also, you're the third person to actually ask if they can show my pictures on their blog. That's a pretty impressive list to be on considering how this week alone about 30,000 people saw my stuff due to hotlinking without my permission. Considering that I don't advertise, it's not a big deal...but it's kind of wonky when you think about it.

So yes, you have my blessing and I'm glad there are people in the opera community who dig my stuff.
(Oh and because you're one of the few people who might be interested, the entire Ring Cycle should be showing up on the site sometime in January.)

Thanks a lot Jared. I think it's correct to ask before linking. Happened to me a couple times that some people just "stole" some of my articles, changed a couple words and made them theirs. Quite unpleasant :)

I write a blog in French (I'm French, living in Germany), so you'll get some visitors from good old Europe ;)

I'm really glad I bumped into your page (I was looking for some pictures from Turandot and your vision of Turandot is really hilarious !)

This, oddly enough, brings up a weird tangent:
As an American living in Berlin, Germany, the "good old Europe" line is really grating. From the emoticon I know you meant it as a joke, but sweet mother of GOD I hear it a lot over here. It's not that serious, but I really, really hear it a lot. Being that I was over here before he said it, I can safely say THAT comment has inspired the most anti-American crap I've had to deal with. Bah.
Thank you George Bush for personally driving a stake between me and the people I've lived with for the past two years. The Germans took it VERY seriously.
:end tangent:
By the way, I know you were joking, but I figure my friends in America might actually like a heads up on the "good old Europe" line.

But I'm glad you like the's easily my favorite opera. I'm not sure why I haven't gotten around to repainting it.

Intended to be a bit provocative indeed. So you do live in Berlin. I read the Q&A part of your page and didn't really know what to think :D

I live in W├╝rzburg, that tiny overwhelmingly and annoyingly catholic bavarian city about an hour and a half away from Frankfurt.

Turandot is my all-time favorite opera too. Everytime I hear it, I don't quite know whether I have to be fond of the bitch or just feel like hating her ;) Have you heard the Sutherland-Pavarotti-Caballe version from 1973 (Zubin Mehta), it's fabulous.
