Just Finished

This poster for the East Bay Alternative Book and Zine Fest,  I hope they like it.  It's interesting, last year I was too late to sign up as a tabler and was actually super depressed about it.  Like, here I am, a bay area resident who is on my 22nd issue, but I'm unable to participate in this event for people like me.  Granted, I could have just set up outside like a lot of other people did, but whatevz.  Anyways, and now here I am one year later, and out of the blue I get an email asking me to illustrate the poster!

Someone wrote this on Reddit

'Dreams of Donuts' by Heather Wreckage.
An intimate perspective at the life and times of Bay Area punk babe Heather Wreckage. Quirky, funny, and surprisingly informative. Dreams of Donuts does an awesome job at presenting really vulnerable parts of this persons life in a format that is difficult to not relate to. The effects of which cause the reader (at least myself) to reevaluate their(my) own vulnerabilities and insecurities. Which is refreshing and hopefully good.
Among the funny and sobering occurrences of her day to day life, she also writes about cool D.I.Y resources, alternative dwellings, places to see secret shows, and other interesting shit. I couldn't recommend Dreams of Donuts anymore (I could but I don't want to). It's a great comic. It's changed my life, not much, but for the better.
You can pick up a copy if you happen to be in the San Francisco Bay Area at some local record/book stores (Thrillhouse preferably), but aside from that you can also order them here I recommend ordering the anthology which is the first 10 issues for 5$ (it comes with a cool handmade hardcover!).
Happy readings or whatever.

I don't know who wrote this, but it's hecka sweet.  I don't usually meet or recieve feedback from my readers, so when I find something like this it really makes me want to keep going.

Show Flyer

I recently got back from the Portland Zine Symposium (I wasn't really feeling it this year, not sure if I want to go next year) curtosy of Moira Scar, and wanted this flyer to be really sick as a thank you for the lift, but then I got SICK.  Like, for real sick, I was in the ER for a few days on hella meds and they didn't know what was wrong with me and it was the fucking WORST.  After some straight up malpractice material went down, I escaped that hospital via Mikey and Nick from Healers and went to a different one, where I was quickly diagnosed with the Mumps and sent home.  So this was drawn from my sick bed, and I'm not really into it, but there is no way I'm going to draw something else so it will have to do.

Pizza Punks Flyer

I did this flyer a while ago for the Santa Rosa Pizza Punks, but found out afterwards that another band had been added and the location changed.  I was gonna change it (I don't use computers or anything, I just draw it all by hand old-school like), but it was just too much of a pain in the butt and I really didn't have enough time, but I don't think I've actually told them that yet.  Either way, even though it's inaccurate I still like it.  Plus, I love Nervosas.

Sacramento Ladyfest

Chavez (from the amazing band Butch vs. Femme) is helping organize the Sacramento Ladyfest, and asked me to do a shirt design for it, but it was super last minute so I don't know if they'll actually use these or not.  Either way, since I'm done with Dreams of Donuts I have plenty of time to work on other projects, in addition to finishing ones I've postponed/forgot about.

This last one isn't scanned right, the person at the photocopy place messed it up so the whole left side is left out, but I really don't feel like going back there tonight so I'll get it rescanned tomorrow.
