In SLC around 1987, I was in the front of a line to get Mike Dringenberg’s autograph. He sketched me a very elaborate image of Death who was a brand new character. While sketching, he told me all about the woman who inspired the look of Death. It really held up the line but, as a young punk kid, I really appreciated it… I wish I could find that sketch!

It’s good to see Cinamon getting the credit she deserves these days as Mike Dringenberg’s inspiration and occasional model, twenty-something years ago. (I’d get faintly irritated when people used to lie and claim that they were the inspiration for Death who weren’t her.)

Cinamon and Death: “Cinamon was the original inspiration for Neil Gaiman’s Death character from the Sandman series”

“"I realize more and more that when you do stuff with integrity, when you do stuff because you believe in it, when you do stuff because you have to, you can’t expect to be recognized, remembered, or thanked by the history books. For me, I have to trust that my actions have meaning, not by how many people end up knowing the specific stories and quaint amusing characters, but by the residual effects of action".” Sarah Kirsch

Photos of the RCA/Hot Mess squats in Oakland, CA.

This place and these people are fantastic. RCA has had several awesome parties with DJ’s & bands. However, they face eviction as Oakland/BART continue to develop the neighborhood for commuters.

I recently finished the amazing book Marvel: The Untold Story by Sean Howe. I don’t think I will ever look at comic books the same again.
One thing the book reminded me is how long I have been reading comics and how important they are to me. Perhaps my favorite title ever is The New Mutants (first volume) and my favorite run on that title has to be with Bill Sienkiewicz.

Childish Gambino aka Donald Glover has been putting out really refreshing bangers for a minute now. I am a big fan.

Now with his Royalty ‘mixtape’, he has commissioned a cool visual art component. I guess when you have Donald Glover money you can pay to do awesome shit.
