***We made a bunch of special Black and white prints for some customers at the comic cons this year…they turned out so well we sold-out of a few of them. This is one of John’s favorites. We posted other versions of it – with flash-fiction stories and poetry – previously, but this time it’s just the image…and it is enough. -Marsha
Game Face…Face Plant
Go sports! Go sports!
Kick the bishop in the shorts,
When she fell, face first, with a grunt and a thudd,
the state of her health was precarious,
but staggering up, encrusted with mud,
the look on her face was hilarious.
***Yeah, there’s a silly rhyme for BOTH of these pages…thankfully for you, we left them out of the book. I think John is the only freakish weirdo in America who still likes poetry. You’re welcome! If you want to buy the book, hit the ETSY link above or go to etsy.com and search EEWbooks. -Marsha
Fingers are fingers
and thumbs are fingers,
but not every finger’s a thumb.
The same thing goes for chickens, they say
(but the ones who say it are dumb!).
***John loves this poem…..now you know why the publisher cut all the poetry from the new book, BODY-ODDIES. People hate that crap. The image, however, is one of MY favorites. Buy the book! Find it at www.sallemander.com or go directly to Etsy and search EEWbooks. -Marsha
Arm Candy…Sticky Fingers
Sid was covered in candy tattoos,
they said he was mean and vicious,
but after he died…and hardened up,
He tasted sweet and delicious.
***There’s no rhymed ditty for Arm Candy. The publisher would have cut it from the new book, BODY-ODDIES, anyway, just like Sticky Fingers was. But don’t get me wrong, it was the right move. The publisher made a fantastic book, and as it is, John is the only freak who still likes poetry any more, anyway. Get the book. Go to www.sallemander.com or go directly to Etsy and search EEWbooks. -Marsha
I might have been slightly distracted.
Anyone could make a mistake.
How could I miss a thing like that?!
I just didn’t notice the snake.
How did this happen? How could this be?
Was she born like that? Can she see?
I don’t know man. I’m pretty freaked out.
How much more can I take?
***This image appears in the new book, “BODY-ODDIES,” in it’s original blue hue. We did this B/W version as a special order print for a comic con customer. We’re not sure which one we like better! The rhyme was written for the book…but was cut by the publisher because they hate poetry (like most people). You can find BODY-ODDIES, as well as all our other books, at www.sallemander.com or go directly to Etsy and search EEWbooks. -Marsha
***The new book, BODY-ODDIES, best served with mustard. Find it, along with all our books, at www.sallemander.com or go directly to Etsy and search EEWbooks.
***This is a B/W version of the inside cover art for the new book, “BODY-ODDIES” which just came out. The original art is done in green and looks perfectly cool…but a dude at a recent comic-con asked for a B/W print of it and when I made it, I realized how cool some of the other illustrations would work in B/W too. So I made a set of 10 images to try out at the next few shows. You can find BODY-ODDIES and all my other books at www.sallemander.com or go directly to Etsy and search EEWbooks. -Marsha

At first we thought all the babies blew up.
We found them that way in the morning.
They’d suddenly grown to enormous size!
We had no idea…no warning.
Well, people freaked out. They lost their minds,
(and some of us got really drunk),
but didn’t take TOO long to understand,
that THEY didn’t grow…..WE SHRUNK!!!
***I’m hoping this will be the last rough sketch image we post from the new ‘Body-Oddies’ book before it comes out. Still, it’s a good one with a good rhymed ditty to go with it (even though the rhymed ditties didn’t make it into the book). -Marsha
***Just the image this time, no short story. The final version of this sketch will be on the back cover of our new book, “Body-Oddies” which is being printed now and will be released soon. -Marsha
