Hey David, if you could share a photo or two of Stumptown Fest that would be great! Sounds like there is more and more happening in Portland.
Sigh. Why did I ever leave?

John, my digital camera seems to have gone missing, but maybe I'll bring my old Kodak Stereo.

Hi david. I don't think anyone could go past a copy of I SHALL DESTROY ALL THE CIVILIZED PLANETS, now, could they?

well, you can go wrong with porn; you'd just know pretty well ahead of time if you would be.

interesting about that fletch hanks book. i'm about to do a review of it on radio, but if it's out of print i'm not sure it's worth doing...

Dear David Chelsea,
In the fall of 1978, in Portland, Oregon, Richard Vidan handed me a manuscript libretto of a play he said was by you, with the idea that I would compose the music. I did compose the music, but Mr. Vidan decided not to produce the play. Instead he starred himself in a play that allowed him to bare the breasts of the leading lady.
The copy he gave me was missing the title page, but I ran across it recently while sorting through my old piles, I mean files. The play is about some Italian peasants and involves the reform of a villain and a marriage.
I am wondering if this play is in fact by you and has it ever been produced elsewhere?
Thanks for your time, I'm just curious, I have no plans or intentions regarding this manuscript.

It would have been unusual for the leading lady in a Portland theater production of the time not to at least bare her breasts; l hope Richard kept his clothes on. l never knew Richard went so for as to hire a composer for the play. Too bad it never went further. I wrote a lot of unproduced plays in my late teens, most of which deserve to stay buried, but my memory is that one rose above my usual level by virtue of being based on a very funny poem by W.S. Gilbert and written in my best pastiche Gilbert and Sullivan style. I've been in touch again with Richard recently, sharing memories of an actress and costume designer we both knew who died recently.

2012 in Review: M. P. Fikaris

What have been your personal cartooning/comics highlights of 2012? Starting up a little store room in my studio and printing up a new periodical DAILIES while pushing through my inhibitions of medium and painting some comics.

Christopher Downes 2012 in review

What have been your personal cartooning/comics highlights of 2012? I went to the Australian Cartoonists Association's Stanley Awards weekend for the very first time. I had to crowd fund in order to get there, but it was really fun. I got to meet a lot of heroes of mine and they turned out to be genuinely nice people.
