The Devil Queen

How my wife and I sold our souls to the Queen Anne Victorian we tried to save.

My Photo
Location: Crow Mountain, Arkansas, United States

Synopsis: This is a cautionary tale. A seriously disturbed couple find the charming, old ruin of a Queen Anne Victorian in Russellville, Arkansas, and buy it for $1.00. They tore the roof off, cut it in half, and had it moved to some land they owned sixteen miles away because they didn't know any better. Since then, they have hired and fired contractors, had all of their tools stolen, re-wired, re-plumbed, insulated, and essentially rebuilt the entire house. Their only problem is that after four years it still isn't finished. Now they are tired, broke, and wonder what in the hell it is they've done to themselves. And, it's haunted.

Test Runs

Here are two test prints of the home improvement monkey design for the tee shirts. Version three is going to be the "final" print design for the first run.

If anyone out there is interested in these one of a kind proto-types, they are yours for $10.00 each. The size of the actual print is roughly 10" x 10."

Update: Version One is sold, so only Version Two is still for sale. Thanks!

Update: These monkeys are sold! Thanks!

Did you ever decide whether you wanted to add a caption? I don't know whether to buy a wordless T-shirt now, or wait for further hilarity...

Yes I do, just send it the hotmail account I have for the blog (thedevilqueen(at)hotmail(dot)com).

Let me know which you prefer, they are slightly different.



For the time being (next few months at least), the flying monkey's will be voiceless, no captions. If you don't mind a wait that may change, but I have enough orders that I probably won't take that up until November.
