This is a centerpiece at The Wonderland Book Awards, created by Angie Molinar and Chrissy Horchheimer. It was based on a the cyclops girl with the goldfish mohawk from Ultra Fuckers, originally designed by Ed Mironiuk.

Here is the artist, Chrissy, holding up the head.

I’ve been out of commission for a few weeks doing conventions and recovering from said conventions. I’m just now getting back in the swing of things.

BizarroCon was a blast, as always. If you happen to be somebody interested in becoming a bizarro writer you should go next year. You should go every year.

Jeff Burk wrote up a BizarroCon Report last year for the Magazine of Bizarro Fiction. This year he has written about it in his blog. To read about BizarroCon 2009, go to:

Rose Okeefe, who organizes BizarroCon, also wrote a little something about the event here: Thanks to all BizarroCon Attendees!
