Jay Ryan at Million Year Picnic!
Last night, Matt and I were in Cambridge--an unusual occurrence--so we decided to visit the best comic shop in the Boston area, Million Year Picnic. Completely by accident, we wandered into an artist lecture by none other than the awesomely-awesome poster artist, Jay Ryan! We had planned on putting his latest book, Animals and Objects In and Out of Water, on our Christmas list anyway, so it was a delightful surprise to have the opportunity to see him speak and have a copy of his book signed!
To make us love him even more, Jay turned out to be a really nice and funny guy (unlike another artist we've met...) and he taught us an important lesson about tubdumping. The lesson being that someone in Australia does it, and it's gross.
But a squirrel happily humping on a hunk of cake? That's a-okay!
