Stwallskull reports that Lutefisk Sushi Bento boxes are now for sale online at the Altered Aesthetic website. As I mentioned before I participated in Lutefisk Sushi Bento Box C along with some 50 other Minneapolis cartoonists. These boxes were previously unavailable to ‘out-of-towners.’ Now, thanks to the miracle of modern technology, they can be had by all. I believe quantities are limited, so what are you waiting for?
From Ransom Strange: Voodoo Economics
Here’s another event I participated in, but failed to mention on the blog. Lutefisk Sushi 3 is an (almost) annual comics event in Minneapolis. Practically every able-bodied cartoonist in town makes a mini-comic, makes 150 copies of it and they all end up packaged together in a fancy box. This year the box was designed by Kevin Cannon of Big Time Attic. On top of that there is also a nice exhibition of some of the art held at the Altered Aesthetics gallery. My slice of sushi is a short 8 page Ransom Strange story titled Voodoo Economics. Check out the excerpt above. The Ransom Strange character first appeared in Swindle Magazine No. 12 (and he may appear in some future comics…). The original art from that story is now available for sale and viewing at the art show. The exhibition is open until the end of May. Anyway, click on the pic to see some blurry pictures from the opening event:
