Upcoming Events at the Portland Art Museum
Here we are in the witch's mouth at the Enchanted Forest!
Thanks for coming out to the Sister Spit Eurotrash Benefit the other night, Portland. I truly appreciate it and hope you had a nice time.
If you weren't there, then I shall deliver the sad news to you:
The European Tour has been canceled.
Bummer beyond bummers!
The good news was that we paid the performers at the benefit the other night (including Michelle, who very graciously flew up to do the benefit anyway!). The bad news is that I shant be in Europe this November.
Updates as they come!
I have a limited edition copy of Dope Flounder for you, from Free Comic Book Day. I thank you for your patience and am hard at work on new zines now that school is out!
In other news, I'm doing some programs at the Portland Art Museum this summer in conjunction with their R. Crumb Exhibit.
Check it out!
