If there isn't enough art and depravity for you here on this PG-13 blog, you might want to direct your attention to the Bay Area Comix Valhalla and Smut Emporium Last Gasp where I have been blogging sometimes too. I love the Turners & Last Gasp. It feels good to be surrounded by fellow kooks. Not to mention the mountains of books: mesmerizing old head comix of mysterious origins, weirdo art books, random comics debris (ancient Zippy the Pinhead postcards, Dealer McDope game pieces), coffee table books from Taschen & Chronicle, graphic novels from Fantagraphics & Koyama & D&Q & Picturebox, small press junk. I still consistently buy duplicate back issues of my all-time favorite comix anthology Weirdo with a hoarder's panic that one day they won't be available any more.
When not sweating out my book addiction, I've been making a lot of videos for them, like this one:
for the Hi-Fructose 3 Collected box set and this one:
for the extremely awesome Krampus Greeting Card set.
You can see all of the videos on the Last Gasp youtube page.

1-2-3-4 GO! record store in Oakland. A little something for everyone... assuming everyone loves bee boners. Immature Mature Themes - parental discretion advised. There will be snacks and thangs. Maybe even a dance party if you start shaking it hard enough. See you there!

How Can You Mend A Broken Heart?
Down At Lulu's Valentines Day show, curated by Amanda Verwey. The above piece was my contribution - a swan song to the pain and indignity of lost love, partially inspired by the Bee Gee's classic, How Can You Mend A Broken Heart? This painting is now part of the collection of Emil Sempf, notorious comics enthusiast and man about town.
