Letters by computer
I’ve been going through some old clips for a couple projects I’m working on, and ran across this, from a June 1994 edition of the Des Moines Register.

RIP San Francisco Bay Guardian
The 48-year-old weekly was abruptly shut down yesterday by the company that has owned it for the past two years. It was not a paper without flaws, and it was looking pretty thin on my last couple of visits to the city, but it was an institution. It was also the print home of TMW in San Francisco for more than two decades.
The paper’s demise is a small reminder of the fragility of the ecosystem which sustains my cartoon work. On a related note: please consider joining Sparky’s List!

Do your part!
I’m making this one available as a signed print — please go ahead and order if you want one, but be aware that I won’t be able to start fulfilling any orders until Oct. 18.

Attack of the Doggies
When I did this home page illo for the Nib, I had it in the back of my mind that I’d offer it as a signed and numbered print as well. I’m participating in the AAEC/Satire Fest event in San Francisco next month — and looking forward to it! — but the trip is entirely on my own dime. So my nefarious scheme is to take a stack of prints with me to sell in hopes of defraying the costs of hotel, plane ticket, etc. As is my wont, I’ll be printing these on the gorgeous 17×22 archival fine art paper that I like to use. I haven’t decided what the edition size will be yet, but it won’t be huge — I’d guess 25 or 50. The Doggies are San Francisco icons, and I expect these will sell pretty quickly when I’m there, so I wanted to give the rest of you a chance to order one ahead of time. (Note: since this is a signed/numbered edition, these will not be personalized.)
RIP Tony Auth
Obit by Michael Cavna. I just spent an intensive weekend with Tony last March judging the Herblock prize, so this news comes as kind of a shock. Condolences to his family.
