Hi Everyone.

1. I am finished drawing the book!

2. Tour's in a week! I'm trying to figure out if my Etsy shop will be closed or not whilst I am away. Get your orders in by April 5th Just in case!

a. I'm not going to have the new issue ready for you before tour; but it's So Close that it's scanned in, altogether, and just waiting to be edited & printed! Gnaw on your fingernails until I get back!

b. Come see me on tour, why don't you? Say Hello!

c. I'm going to try and acquire a summer intern, which will mean an updated database, which will mean you will receive emails from me about your subscriptions and if you're one of the people who has not yet received your card or button, you will have a chance to speak up and I will send them your way with your next package.

4. I'm going to have a benefit show for Sister Spit's 2010 Eurotrash Tour here in PORTLAND on JUNE 19TH at MISSISSIPPI PIZZA. Featured guests include myself, Michelle Tea, Tara Jane Oneil, and more TBA.

See you later.

And here, for your contrast-and-comparison, is the new 2010 version of the drawing attached to the original proposal from so very long ago (rats, i want to find the original for you to compare & contrast, but i can't find it! trust me, this looks less bizarre than its predecessor:

Please wish me luck. I may be arthritic, batty, and/or blind by the time I am finished!

Just in time to go on tour.... (see below)
