RIP Old Cottonwood

We knew it was coming but after 8 years of keeping our fingers crossed, a major limb of our backyard cottonwood tree started to fail this weekend and was resting on the electric line. We had hoped to get one last summer out of this crazy upside-down octopus of a tree, hacked carelessly over the years by the PNM folks to keep it out of the electric lines above. The result was a lopsided hazard that has been slowly dying for the last several… Continue

Carnage of Signage

Much has been made of the recent political campaign sign chaos. Combined with the usual We Buy Homes, I Fix Brakes and we are having a Yard Sale , this was the perfect storm (will this expression never end?) of signage carnage. Not to mention the raging inferno of the court battles lending us these instant classic headlines: 10 Signs 10 Trips to Court, City Zoning Inspector's Car Windows Smashed . The horror.

Before the next swathing of… Continue

In Search of the Man Whisperer

The father of St. Francis of Assisi was an asshole. The father (Bernardone, but we'll call him Bernie) would wait for the great saint to re-enter their hometown of Assisi, and then Bernie would follow Francis around screaming at him, "you are a disgrace to the family!" "you are worthless!" "you are an embarrassment to your mother and I!"

We can often withstand many of the negative voices of those who do not and can not understand the path we have chosen, yet the voice of our father strikes… Continue

The stated mission of the organization is to "provide opportunities for comics writers and artists to develop their personal styles and storytelling "voices," while promoting an understanding of the cultural significance of comic art through seminars and workshops". Pretty righteous stuff huh?
