Are you planning a summer vacation this year? Would you like to be my friend? Are you a creepy hobo-drifter? Are you currently residing in, or near, the state that Jim Harrison once called a partially paved atrocity?
If you even considered saying yes, you absolutely need to come to southeastern Michigan for the 2011 Shadow Art Fair and see me. I’ll be there with my creative collaborator in VOSKY selling my new comic, original prints and videos. There is also a good chance I will have some copies of the just-for-fun album from my band, BATWAKE. I will be there all day exchanging stories and, hopefully, blowing minds like some sort of psychic tornado. It should be a lot of weird fun and, better yet, it’s all going down inside of a brewery.
It’s on July 16th from noon to midnight in Ypsilanti. The entry fee is only two-cents and I’ll be happy to talk ears off whenever there is a lull in the crowd. If you’re looking for a good way to spend a Saturday, I can think of nothing better. Tell your friends. Tell your enemies. You can all stay at my house.
I also should apologize for my content flow slowing down ever so slightly while I’m working on finishing so many projects this month, but I’m not going to. If anyone has any ideas for last minute additions to my comic, now would be the time to mention it.
Kisses, hugs, drugs.
I shall share this with my friends in Mich, dear. ;)
Or…um…be YOURSELF. Heh.
Sadly, I have no auxiliary options but to always be myself.
I’ve always wondered about those “Live Nudes” or “Live Dancers”. I mean, like what’s the alternative ?
I have lived in some pretty sketchy places and had pretty sketchy friends convince me to follow them into some pretty sketchy buildings. You don’t want to know the alternative.
Ypsilanti? That’s a real place?
I once lived there for five whole years. That absolutely doesn’t qualify it as a real place, though.
I would check a map, just to be safe.
“The entry fee is only two-cents” – if you send me a half-off coupon, I’m there.
I tell you what, if you show up, I’ll hand draw you a voucher for half the cost and buy you dinner.
Okay, but you have to autograph the hand-drawn voucher since I’m sure it’ll be worth millions some day soon! ;)
Also, as long as you buying me dinner doesn’t include a soup kitchen, then I’m in…
I think all the soup kitchens are closed on Saturday.
I can’t reply to your last comment so I have to make a new one here…
Soup kitchens aren’t open on Saturdays? Weird…I would think that would be their busiest day. Well, that’s good news because now I know you can take me to a more high-brow place…like Dairy Queen. ;)
If you actually came out, I’d take you to the best place available after the show ended- or offer you a room so we could go somewhere actually decent on the following day.
Am I allowed to visit a city even though I have no idea how to pronounce its name? Ypsilanti? Do you simply sound out every single consonant?
I hope the fair was a success and that you had fun.
Yup and the Y is an I sound. “IP-SIL-AN-TEE”
