I started this comic as a response to the dearth of Asian Americans in starring roles on sitcoms. So I have mixed feelings about this K-Town show. It stars an Asian American cast that plays against stereotypical depictions of Asians in the media. The K-Town crew certainly aren’t straight laced, nerdy geeks, math wizards, violinists, or kung fu masters as we are typically portrayed on television. However, they are giant douche bags.
So in a sense, this show kind of answers all of my complaints about the lack of non-stereotypical Asian American representation on the tele. But… but… oh fuck it. Here, watch this train wreck.
Tomorrow at Super Art Fight 7 I face off against Chris “IMPACT” Impink. It’s going to be a battle of epic art proportions. I may just have to pull out all the stops and use my secret weapon!
If you’re in the Baltimore/DC/MD area and want to know what the hell Super Art Fight is all about, tomorrow’s show is the perfect chance to see all the insane pageantry. Our show at Baltimore’s Metro Gallery is totally FREE so get there early. Show starts at 7pm.
I didn’t really advertise it since I didn’t really have any Yellow Peril stuff ready, but I attended ConnectiCon over the weekend. I did a short convention report over at the podcast. And if you head on over there, you might catch a glimpse of the horrendously cute PUPPY COW!
While I’m at it, here’s some link love to the folks that made this convention totally awesome for me:
Gigantic love to Kev and Blondie for letting us stay at their place. Check out their comic, Caf-Fiends.
Big heaps of love to Linsday Wailes for driving us all up. She makes awesome bags that you can buy!
Wanted to share this email I got from AZM reader Charm City Shinobi:
I saw your posts on your blog and Yellow Peril about the auction to help out with the oil spill. My friends and I started a group called Designers Giving Back and we’ve been down in Mississippi for a few weeks now helping out with various things, from providing resources to volunteers to building homes for the numerous Katrina victims still displaced. We’re currently working with the National Audubon Society to create a documentary showing the real effects of the oil spill, the shots they’re trying to censor from the news. Our website is http://designersgivingback.com, and if you like what we’re doing, could you give us a shout out on your blogs so we can help spread the awareness?
Thanks, much appreciated!

Pretty freaking awesome, Dann. Designers Giving Back is accepting donations for room and board and travel or if you want to give directly, you can send money through their Razoo campaign.
If you catch me in the wild you get a piece of candy. Maybe. If you'd like to see me at a Con, please let them know about me. If you'd like to book me for an appearance, shoot me an email and I'll get back to you. Currently listing dates for 2013.
