New Senior Citizen Zine, Dog Comic

Thanks to everyone who came out to the library reading last night!
There should be a podcast of it up on the library's website soon.

I've got a skill that I'd like to share with you.
That skill is procrastinating really hard by burning up time on the internet.
Anytime you see a blog post by me, please be assured that it was never on my to-do list. Just a semi-productive diversion from whatever I was actually supposed to work on that day.

In line with that, here is a photo of a drawing I did for the IPRC once. Don't mind the rippy tape spot at the bottom. There were green heathered ringer shirts with this dude on them. I can't find mine for the life of me.

This photo is on this "Muss My Hair" blog.

Also- I have a few copies of the new "Tell It Like It Tiz" zine that we do with the seniors at the Marie Smith Center.
Snag one off Etsy if you like reading sassy conversations.

Also, Beija is now partially deaf. Did you know? Here's a comic about it that originally appeared in the online magazine Good Dog

. Now you do.

p.s. Wishbone can still hear.

Portland- Save on calendar shipping. Everyone Else- save on other stuff.

Hello! I realized this morning (thanks to Felice), that I can figure out a way for Portlanders to not pay shipping on calendars.

If you live in Portland and would like to pre-order a calendar, I can offer you free shipping by offering a pick-up location, and also hand delivering some by bike.
If you live within 5 miles of North Portland (give or take), I will deliver your calendar by bike.
If you live outside of that, or are able to pick up, I believe I'll have your calendars ready and waiting at either The IPRC or Reading Frenzy downtown (9th & Oak). I will email you when the time comes and let you know where and how to pick up.

If you go to Etsy , you can put in the coupon code "Portlandprice" to get your free shipping.
BUT PLEASE include in the notes section whether you'd like pickup or delivery.

P.s. Note- All of the animal dudes you see in this post will be in the calendar. The tapir, the piglets, and the dogs.
Now about those dogs- This is a drawing of Diego and Kona, which was inspired by & drawn from a photograph taken by Carli Davidson.
Diego lost his eyes at age 3, and had Kona as his seeing eye pug for eleven years.
I am very appreciative to Carli for documenting their story and allowing me to portray them in ink.
