Words & Pictures for May 2013

Renowned Oregon Governor Tom McCall would have turned 100 years old this year.  To commemorate this larger-than-life figure, Know Your City (formerly the Dill Pickle Club) commissioned a comic book about McCall's controversial decision to fund the Vortex I rock festival in 1970 to draw attention away from an American Legion convention in Portland.  Author Sarah Mirk, who created the comic with artist Daniel Duford, will be in the studio along with Know Your City historian Doug Kenck-Crispin.  There will also be a ticket giveaway for the Northwest Animation Festival, and information about the newest Know Your City project, Comics for Change.
