Tonight's Jam moved to July 3rd

A scary weather system is heading our way; including 100 km/h winds and possibility of a tornado! The Jam is being moved to next Wed July 3rd, just to be on the safe side. Please be careful my friends <3

April 24 2019 April O'Neill/ Mutant Animals UPDATED

Frost Giant by
S.Marsden (c) 92
April seems like quite awhile ago. Remember all the cold? The snow? The crying out for spring to get into gear and free us from winter's clutches?

Well, that's what was in our heads when the Jam group started drawing mutant animals at the Shanghai on the 24th of the 'cruelest month'.

Thanks to: Suzanne Marsden, Clayton Jacobs, Ifer Jean, Andrew Stutt, Gérard Bélec, James Rule, Liz Walsh, Jason Priebe, Dwight Williams and Piper Anderson for joining in and drawing together to make some wonderful, strange and nutty art.

Thanks to the Shanghai and Mabe for taking great care of us and making sure we were comfortable, well-fed and watered. The space continues to be a wonderful, creative inspiration for artists and writers, no matter what their chosen discipline. Yay!

Now on to the art :-)
