Hi guys! This week’s issue of SFWeekly is ENTIRELY COMICS. One of them happens to be one that I drew.
This issue isn’t exactly what you’d expect from a comics issue though- it’s illustrated versions of the same columns that run every week. SFWeekly paired it’s columnists up with local cartoonists to create what they called “a terrifying mutant of journalism and illustration.”
I was paired up with Benjamin Wachs to do the Distillations column. Naturally, since this is the bar revue column, it was our duty to grab a round together at the bar in question- which turned out to be Trick Dog. I super loved the Zodiac themed menu, which you had to rotate to read. Also, hilariously, we ended up talking to Rob Baedeker and Chris Colin, which turned into this Fastco article. What are the odds of two groups of people doing separate articles in the same place at the same time striking up a conversation? So, this comic and that article together make the collision of two pieces of journalism in one bar.
If you’re in San Francisco, you should pick up a copy! Or if you’re not you can just read it online.
