Luke Martinez (aka the last cat) curated a group show with a bunch of Bay Area artists and i have the honor of participating on it. The opening is friday and we all know how fun shows are at 111 Minna, it’s going to be a party! And after 8:30 it’s a grab and go show. One night only, come on San Francisco!
the other day got some art on the mail from the great john malta, his originals are awesome. art in real life is pretty rad. also got some drawings to collab, so excited!
John Malta's zines

toutou is probably one of my very favorite characters ever made. nroll made this and juju kedryna brought it to me when we were showing in antwerp. fun times!! there’s a whole book of toutou that is the coolest shit ever. fin.
man, we totally survived APE. i mean, it’s hard sometimes. i don’t like crowds and gothic nerds and manga and i dunno. but hey, it’s worth it cause it’s not everyday you meet your favourite artists. i was so stoked to meet vanessa davis and esther pearl watson and mark tood. for real! the dan clowes talk thing was weird i couldn’t listen anything he was saying, i saw a girl reading a book while he was there talking and she was right on the front. sorry im grumpy i wanted to kick her ass and sit where she was. the signing at booksmith was so much nicer!!! i’m glad i was there! back to APE, well here’s some pics
these are some of my trades and purchases. real deal comics and that other weird psychedelic magazine/book from picture box. pretty crazy, i like it a lot! boy’s club is always amazing. if you dont have them you should buy them all right now. chuck e cheese zine from esther pearl watson and mark todd is magical, i swear! the troll king, from top shelf books is pretty cool! thanks brett!! stuff from revival house is pretty sweet, i’m anxious to read those. and man, skinner made a zine with poems that is the shit. for real! so many cool stuff !
no words for this, too cool!
misprinted screenprinted poster <3

the STINCKERS booth was my favourite, that PREGO comics is sick!!! and all the million lil things to look at!
