Interested in getting rid of some of that pesky extra money you've got just sitting under your mattress? Well, consider throwing a few bucks in my tip jar!
You’re reading this, so odds are you know I enjoy geeky things: comics, action movies, video games (even if I don’t play as much as I’d like to), stuff like that. Odds are you also know I’m more than willing to call out and challenge sexism in all kinds for forms…including when they intersect with those geeky things I like.
And they do.
They do more often than I’d really like to believe, honestly.
So shocked and sad to hear that The Toonseum here in Pittsburgh was robbed today. Among what was taken was the director’s laptop, which contained a lot of the planning materials for the upcoming Comics Arts Festival being thrown to celebrate the National Cartoonists Society Conference being held in our city this year.
The Toonseum is an amazing place, it helps to preserve and share comics, cartoons and animation as an artform. They run classes for students of all ages, bring some great exhibits and artists to the area and throw some pretty damn sweet shindigs.
If you are able to help them out at all in the wake of this robbery, please head to their donation page. If not, please at the very least pass this message along!
