Native Lad: Graphic Illustrators Workshop and Discussion with Lee Post and Dimi Macheras.   
Each will give a demonstration on how they approached their chapter of A Native Lad.  The event will be an informal lesson on how one can bring art, Alaskan history, and  living portraits of people together.  Children are invited to try their hand at sketching too.

A Celebration of A Native Lad: Benny Benson Tells Alaska’s Story
Author Sarah Hurst and cartoonists Stanley McCauley, Lee Post and Evon Zerbetz discuss the collaborative effort in the creation of the graphic novel A Native Lad: Benny Benson Tells Alaska’s Story with the guidance of moderator John Weddleton, the owner of Boscov’s Comics. KNBA newscaster Joaquin Estrus will feature with a group reading of a scene about an Alaska school segregation case from Hurst’s original play, which is the inspiration for the book. Vocalist Sandy Cunningham will open the festivities with her performance of the Alaska Flag Song.  Books will be available for purchase and signing. This event is in celebration of Alaska Native Heritage Month and is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

S.O.S. Political Theater

I just finished this for the Elevate Alaska political "debate" involving members portraying the current political candidates.   I had to add Lisa at the last minute due to the write-in campaign.  With the boat theme, the life-saver seemed apt.  I didn't design the flyer, but it is snappy.

Opera opening

I had the opportunity to try my hand at caricaturing at the Anchorage Opera's opening gala.  The theme was Parisian Operas, hence the beret.   It went amazingly well, with a long, long line the entire night.  If anyone has any pictures of me in action, I'd love to see them.  I saw a few camera flashes over my shoulder, but haven't been able to track any down.

Magazine Project

These are for a magazine project that is on hiatus.  

Rock Band Band

The Amazing Jon Lang is producing a short film called "Rock Band Band" and without ruining the plot their are two opposing bands,  "Button Tap" and "Double Rainbow".  These are the draft logos for the bands.   

Baby Delays

With all the baby raising, I've been a bit slow to post up any new projects of which there have been many.  I'll coorect that now.

The show's up and it looks great!

Cartoons take over the Dorothy G. Page Museum

Wasilla –  Giant vegetables, pocket-sized king crab and flying polar bears, on my!  These are just a few of the creations now on display at the Dorothy G. Page Museum in The Artwork of Lee Post: Everything is a Little Better Than You Remembered.  Post’s creations take visitors on a visual visit through Alaska and the mind of the cartoonist, himself.

This exhibit highlights some of the more recent work of Lee Post, creator of Your Square Life.  It also includes a How-To-Guide display on creating a comic book page.  A variety of objects from Post’s drawing desk are on view allowing visitors a chance to see what it takes to be a cartoon artist.  The Artwork of Lee Post is on display at the Dorothy G. Page Museum now through June 26, 2010.

Join us on Saturday, June 12, 2010 between 2 and 4 pm to meet Lee Post and discuss his inspirations and imaginings he brings to life with pen and paper.  Free admission and light refreshments provided.
Lee Post is a life-long Alaskan, growing up in the Palmer/Wasilla area. He's a self-taught artist.   He produced the comic strip “Your Square Life” for the Anchorage Press from 2001 through 2007, ending with the 300th comic strip. 

In addition, Lee Post's art work has appeared in the University of Alaska's Northern Light, The Ester Republic, North Carolina's Bootleg magazine, Omaha's Silent City magazine,,, and South Africa's Itch magazine.  "Your Square Life" also inspired the 30-minute play, "the Simple Dating System", written and performed with Duke Russell for Out North's Under 30 in 2005.  

He recently published four books of his work, including a selection of his comic strips and two children's books.  Several pages of his work will soon be published as the first chapter in a graphic novel about Alaskan History, "A Native Lad" by Sarah Hurst.   His work can be found at

"Everything is a Little Better Than You Remembered"

I'll be having a huge show at the Dorothy G. Page Museum in Wasilla in June, with nearly everything I've done since ending the "Your Square Life" strip, from my children's book work, to the Benny Benson "A Native Lad", to the pieces from last summer's Urban Green show.

The show will be from June 4th to June 26th, with a reception on June 12th from 2 to 4 p.m.

Oh, yeah . . . .

I haven't had much new artwork, well because I've been busy parenting.  If nothing else, she's inspired a fine baby announcement.  Oh, and she is the Amazing Grace.  I guessed that one correctly.

. . .  and the Thank You card

Detail from our baby announcement

I thought I'd include our faces since this will be the last time anyone cares about us apart from the baby.
