About Dead On Paper

Hey there. 

Welcome to Dead On Paper. Back in 2013, I started selling my creations and my wife and I created this site to help do so. 

So you may be wondering why the site is called "Dead On Paper"? This was actually my wife Adria's idea. We both love Catch-22 by Joseph Heller. In it, Doc Deneeka (a "right foul git" as the brits might describe him), doesn't want to fly missions. So he has his name forged onto crew manifests. One of his "missions" end up with the plane crashing into a mountain. Even though he wasn't on the plane, he is listed as deceased. After he realizes what happened, no one seems to be able to do anything about it and even his wife seems to prefer him dead (as she gets death benefits). He is "dead on paper" and there's a lot of hilarity that ensues. It's a great book and we thought there was a nice parallel to the first project we launched as Dead On Paper — Calaveras Playing Cards.

Anyway, that's the story, we know it doesn't make sense. We're ok with that.

Take a look around and we hope you enjoy our creations as much as we did making them!

Chris and Adria
