Is that sense of isolation closing in on you? The CLAW (Cartoonists League of Absurd Washingtonians) will be having their Open Swim this Wednesday evening. The Open Swim is for both member and non-members. Anyone who wants to be part of the festivities is welcomed. Besides the usual hijinks of doodling and preparing the path for the robotic overlords, there just might be a secret ceremony performed. The time and location are:

Wednesday, 7:30 p.m. July 22nd 2009
The Mandolin Café
3923 S 12th St
Tacoma, WA 98405
(In the New and Improved back room, to the left of the performance stage.)
RSVP if you can, space is limited. Feel free to bring a friend, but as this is an adult only event, no kids.

Open Swim Meeting Notes

Greetings true believers, special warm thanks to all the new people who showed up tonight at the first CLAW open meeting of transparency!  We got to meet JEFF HAWLEY CREATOR OF LOGJAM! (World’s only comicstrip devoted to sentient trees).  With special guest appearances by ANDREA TRENBEATH LOWEN of UNSTABLE ART, ERIK BJORNSON  aka THE TACOMA URBANIST and Tacoma’s foremost divorce attorney, AMANDA RAYMOND of NEWSPAPER ILLUSTRATION FAME. Last but certainly not least a very special surprise appearance by cosmic talent STAN SHAW of DRAW STANLEY recent cartoonist for CITY ARTS.

We all swapped photoshop secrets, gave folks a small taste of the PRO-FEZ LIFESTYLE and periphery semi-sacred CLAW rituals.  Sadly one of our founding members ELECTRIC ELLIOT had to leave early to attend to his ULTIMATE FRISBEE commitments.

Many of us were able to sketch.  Below is a small sketch of  what my life was like before I joined CLAW.

Before I Joined CLAW I was just some creep in a bathrobe

And now here is a sketch of what my life is like now that I am part of a team.  I certainly know who my true friends are.

Now I have REAL Friends
