They come in three

One:
A thank you to everyone who made it out to Immaculate: Works by Anna Bongiovanni at our studio last Friday.  Due to the time creeping up on us for the prep of the show, I did not give Anna or myself a ton of time for set-up, so thanks Anna for slogging through!  And thanks for tasty wine!














In the end it all worked out and some wonderful smiles showed up!















Thar be David "Mister-no-where-to-be-found-on-the-internet" Lundin (captured in a Good Minnesotan 3 story illustrated by Renny Kissling).















Alison Stump, who helped set-up the show on a late late Thursday night, enjoying some wine.

Several members of my family showed up, my mom and my sister, Chantel and her friend Tiffany.

Two:
Immaculate continued into the weekend with the Art-A-Whirl crowd making their way through the Thorp Building.  Big thanks to everyone who stopped by and made the show so fun! Extra big thanks to Meghan's Mom for food & table sitting and to James who bought the green mini Geirdo + rocket.

Three:
Meanwhile: Elsewhere: in the cosmos.... Justin, Sarah and meself were at SpringCon talking to peeps, selling some of the last Sunday edition's of GMN4 and picking up some books as well.   Unfortunately we did not take any photo's but Will Dinski has got us covered here.  Speaking of Will, he had some really nice things to say about the last Good Minnesotan comic on his blog, thanks Will!

You know, I had originally planned to write a lot more when this was all fresh in my head, but my internet has mostly not worked the past 3 days.  SO.  I will end this with mention of JP's 1890.  A very beautiful book.  I urge you to check it out!

One more thing before I forget.  Sarah Tulius noticed a mention of GMN4 on Midnight Fiction and a photo of Justin and Sarah taken by Richard Krauss as part of their Stumptown 2010 coverage.  Cool!  Thanks Richard!

Immaculate at Art-A-Whirl + SpringCon

To kick off Art-A-Whirl this Friday night we are opening Immaculate: works by Anna Bongiovanni. This is our 1st solo artist show in our studio. Anna will be there at the opening with Meghan and myself (raighne here) showing up about 6pm.  There will be vegan cupcakes made by Heather Buscho, vegan cookies made by me, wine, Geirdoz, our comix and of course Anna's beautiful art!

The other event going on this weekend is SpringCon at the State Fair grounds.  I will be there with Justin Skarhus and perhaps Sarah Tulius.  Anna Bongiovanni will be at SpringCon Saturday and Sunday at her own table.  Meghan will be holding down the fort at our studio for Art-A-Whirl.  Lots of stuff- sorry for the tardy notice- check it all out!
