BIG FUNNY News, and What About Next Year?

Well, the BIG FUNNY project has been a big success by any measure… thanks much to all who contributed to and otherwise supported the project. Note that the show is still up until the 29th, and if you haven’t seen it yet, you won’t want to miss it. If you can’t make it to the gallery, you can still order copies online here.

Altered Esthetics has kindly invited us back to help organize another comic art gallery show next year. What do you all want to do for it? Please discuss in the comments of this post.

    And I say LUTEFISK SUSHI “D”!
    …or we get NEil Gaiman to write something, everyone draws a page, and the profits go to cost, AE, and the MIRACLEMAN fund….cause that’ll happen.

    I vote for Lutefisk Sushi D. And it’d be great to see some new faces step in and be organizers.

    I vote for Lutefisk Sushi D as well. Also, I am more than willing to donate time, step into a leadership role, be an organizer, etc.

    I’m on-board for Lutefisk Sushi D. I’ll help out where I can.

    Big Funny has been my favorite show to help coordinate, but it has also been one of the most time consuming. I think Lutefisk D would give more folks the opportunity to participate, and it would also be a good show to bring on new people that would help organize, imho.

    Let’s get to the D of Lutefisk Sushi please. I’m up for some box printing as always.

    I’m down for some Sushi myself.

    Let’s do it chaps and lassess, what what!

    Forget “D”, I’m throwing my hat in for ‘Lutefisk Sushi E’

    I think Sushi needs to make a comeback 🙂

    I’d like to help organize! I’m curious to know what goes into putting a show together.

    I’m very much not-in-the-know about Lutefisk Sushi. But from the little I’ve seen, which is mostly the amazing box, uhhhh… I’ll just conform and say “Yeah! Loodee dee, baby! Owww! That just means we have a whole TWO YEARS to make the next Big Funny freakin’ A-MAZE-ING-A-DING.

    Let’s do a zombie anthology!

    Just kidding. Sushi D sounds good to me… as do new organizers! Thanks to those of you who have already volunteered to get involved!
