But, first, a quick word about the 48 Hour Film Project, which my awesome team, Mechanical Cow Productions, successfully completed Sunday at 7:34 p.m.: The screening of our team’s film, “Sugarhook,” will happen at 7 p.m. tomorrow (April 13) at Century 16 Suncoast. If you’d like to buy tickets in advance (and you should), they’re $10 at BrownPaperTickets.com. We’ll be posting the film online as well, but not until after the premiere. I’m not saying much more about the experience now because I write about it exhaustively in this week’s Vegas Seven.
However, on Friday I fly up to Portland, Ore. for the first time to attend the eighth annual Stumptown Comics Fest, being held April 16 and 17 at the Oregon Convention Center. I’m looking forward to seeing old friends such as Jill and Frank Beaton (and their bouncing baby Beatrice), finally meeting collaborators such as John Bivens (an awesome artist who will be sharing my table throughout the weekend), and generally putting birds on everything to make it into art. If you live in the area and love comics, you should check it out. Otherwise, I’ll be hanging around for an extra day or two just to take a short break before returning to the madness.
