My class started up again, and our first assignment was to do something in a style different than our normal drawing. I enjoy the dreamy, dense work of Theo Ellsworth, so I made a page with lots of texture and tried to make it not as literal as my usual stuff. This is my diary for Thursday, January 28. I wanted to include a hint of Jim Woodring, but I couldn't muster my absurdist sensibilities this week. I also wanted to color it, but just didn't have time!

I apologize for the quality of this one, I haven't been around a scanner lately! I got laid off this week, so if anything, I'll at least be able to scan more often. If anyone has ideas for work for me, I'm open to suggestions. Sigh. On the positive side, Prop 66 & 67 passed in Oregon, meaning my roommate can keep working in her field and lots of adults with developmental disabilities will continue getting the support and care they need.
I know I've mentioned this blog before, but it still blows my mind and makes my heart ache everytime I read it: Every Saturday Morning.
You will be missed, Howard Zinn.

That whole interaction just made me feel really gross and uncomfortable. Dude was so persistant too - I didn't show it here, but he first asked if Jenny and I were a couple, and actually offered his phone number like three times. A good example of how female sexuality is still not taken seriously by some male-bodied people, even in little liberal havens like Madison.

You know you're slacking when one of your favorite comics artists complains you haven't been posting enough. I'll try to get caught back up!
-For some reason, Willy St. Co-op has never had good drip coffee. Everything else there is delicious, but not the coffee.
-The Xinjiang Uygher Autonomous Region has been called China's new Tibet. There was a good article in National Geographic about some of the crackdowns on political protests there, but I can't find it on the internets. Here is an article about the leader of the Uighur Movement, she is pretty great!
-Louisvillians! Yesterday I mailed 5 copies of Milkyboots #9 to Cherry Bomb, so expect to see them there soon.
