Minneapolis Jam: February 2011

That’s right. Now that we’ve reached our zenith at 100 jams, it’s time to travel back in time and upload some jams that I may have failed to scan on time. For our first feature, let’s get in our time machine and zap ourselves all the way back to February of 2011. Minneapolis was a cold, desolate wasteland, Grimalkin publisher Jordan Shiveley had just moved into town, still a little wet behind the ears, and nations in the Middle East were peacefully overthrowing their despotic rulers. It was a simpler time.

The theme this month is:

Savage Love in Egypt

Minneapolis Jam #100: March 2011

Last night was our big 100th jam anniversary. Quick summary: We packed Diamond’s, left a mess. Then moved to Psycho Suzis, and left a mess. By meeting #200 I assume we’ll be trashing hotel rooms. But in spite of all the fun we still managed to get some drawing done, and it is presented below.

The theme this month is:

Insects vs. Vampire Role Players vs. Live-Tweeting

APRIL: Movies About Cuba, L.A. Law, Revenge of the Sith, and NYPD Blue
