WHAT IF...Star Wars had been a sitcom???

















Tomorrow! TOMORROW! TOMOOOOOORROW!!!!! Join us on our new THIRD THURSDAY

time for the CLAW Open Swim Meeting at the Amocat Cafe on St. Helens in beautiful downtown

TACOMA!  It’s still at 8:00pm (7:30 for council and any other interested members), but we have

changed to the THIRD THURSDAY of each moth in order to hopefully begin attracting the

Artwalk crowd!

The theme for tomorrow’s Open Swim Sketch Contest is “STAR WARS…What If?” What if

Star Wars had been a musical? Or a sword & sorcery fantasy? Or a game show? Or a sitcom

(as seen in my drawing above)??? It’s a wacky Star Wars redux event inspired by the wonderful

70s Redux SW drawings that Chris Tirri (CLAW member 7.2) was doing last month!!

Thanks Chris for such an inspirational concept!!


So join us TOMORROW with your best “SW What If?” ideas firmly in mind! There will be

fabulous and exciting Star Wars prizes! Well, OK, cheap and tawdry Star Wars prizes…

But it’ll be FUN and GEEKY!  Don’t miss out!


Special Guest Robot:  R2D2!

C.L.A.W. Hero??
















At the last 24 Hour-Comic day, i began a project with my friend and writing partner Zan Christensen.  It was a comic about bullying and one boy’s efforts to overcome it and although we didn’t finish it at the event, we did continue to work on it actually did a limited print-run to debut at this year’s Emerald City ComiCon.  Now we are trying to raise funds through to do a large, color print-run that will hopefully be published in time for San Diego ComiCon, through Northwest (Zan’s publishing concern.)

Well, now Zan and I have been named “Heroes of the Week” on Michael Hulshof-Schmidt’s “The Sollipsistic Me” blog site.  He writes about the comic and what it’s trying to accomplish in raising awareness about the issue of teen suicide because of bullying.  You can read more about it by following this link:

“Hero” is a bit of a strong word, but I certainly appreciate the recognition!
