So, here I am in Portland! Shannon is doing a two-week internship at the Oni Press offices, so I thought I'd come along with her and have some authentic Portland-type experiences.
So far, I've managed to squeeze in a visit to the enormous Powell's books -- which I haven't been to since I was a kid! -- and tried some Voodoo Doughnuts. Today, the crazy talented folks at Periscope Studios are kindly letting me visit and borrow some drawing space for the day. And tomorrow, I'm going to Comics Underground to watch some comics creators do live readings.
It is true what they say... this city is overflowing with cartoonists and comic events like no place I've ever been. Even in January! So I'm going to try to cram in as much of it as I can before I have to go home.
