Portland Zine Symposium Madness Promo

Tim told me yesterday that the Portland Zine Symposium was this Saturday,so I think if my comic gets done by then,I will probably make it down there to try to trade some of them,or sell them.Its the last issue of Real Madness Comics,#5.Its sort of the end of my run with Teenage Dinosaur.I was drawing it figuring it would be my last comic/zine ever,and then I was going to move on to more successful,money paying projects,but most of the people I hooked up with were pretty broke.I'm definitely working on more commercial shit,like signs and posters for bands and deejays,plus more hot rod art.But its a really good comic,I started it like 2 years ago-I drew alot of it in the treatment center,and then finished it when I got out after 90 days.It took a really long time because I was working alot,at first at the bar before Trimet tore it down.Plus I have been supporting my daughter,and raising her and all that entails,so its hard to sit down and draw alot.I'm not bitching,I'm just pointing out that alot of work and love went into it.The last time I went to a Zine Fest,it was down at Pertland State University.That was probably 8 years ago or so.So hopefully it will be pretty interesting.I hope I at least see Reading Frenzy or something familiar there,but I doubt it.I also have a mini-comic in the new Fantagraphics Mini Comic anthology,which is coming out soon,and I'm psyched to finally have something of mine printed by Fantagraphics.I used to read Love & Rockets and Lloyd Lewelyn,so thats cool.Plus,I am still putting out alot of ! pagers for various independent comic self publishers.I am also working on a comic about Germanys invasion of Poland,and I will probably put that out myself,since Tim is so busy.The only problem with that is,usually only 25 or 50 copies come out.Supposedly Teenage Dinosaur should be putting out some huge collections of my shit,so thats in the works.Either way,I hope to make it down to PZS this Saturday to fuck off and do some trades and shit,so if I see you down there,say yo to me because I'm old and boring now,so I'm pretty harmless-the treatment center taught me dialectical behavior therapy skills,so you don't have anything to worry about.Come buy a zine-it took 2 fucking years to finish it!
