|Awe, that made me smile. Ocryx and Joe is the best Tacoma comic strip out there. Love it.|

|Haha, great to have O&J back. Solid biting commentary too!|

|I think that's the first time i've seen anyone using the Lawnbowling arena at wright park. BTW|

|great eye for detail. wright is only park in town i'm aware of that has little signs identifying the trees.|

|Wright Park is actually an arboretum. Not a lot of people seem to know this.
Just like Wright has park-wide FREE Wifi.
Betcha didn't know that either.

|Free WiFi in the park? I didn't know that. Hmm, that's something to keep in mind when the Lawn Bowling matches go into extra Chukkers!|

|You shouldn't have said the Wright Park was an arboretum, the right to lifers will head down there and start protesting.|
by L.S.Erhardt on 6/10/2010 @ 10:01pm
|Only the illiterate ones from Yelm would do that.
Most people would abort the protest when they see a bunch of trees.

|Wifi's there but concentrated on the south end near that out-building and the b-ball courts. Still, wicked amenity in such a beautiful gem of a park. MetroParks sometimes gives tree-related tours describing the specimen and their significance. And the lawn bowling club guys are awesome! They were pretty excited when they opened the place up during the re-opening of the renovated park when so many young people joined in. Perhaps, like the Pythians, we should work to infuse some younger blood into their ranks as well...|

|These are awesome hyper local cartoons.
Are they for sale?

|I've never been able to get the wifi to work reliably by the playground, which is where I need it.|

|Kev, thanks for this information. We rarely go to wright park but always spend the weekend there during ethnic fest (july 24-25th this year). I'll try out the wi-fi. This is off topic, but anyone who visits wright park really should investigate the manuscript museum across the street. If you have the slightest interest in history you will love the place.|
by Crenshaw Sepulveda on 6/10/2010 @ 10:27pm
|I'm pretty sure they'd continue the protest thinking it was a branch office.|
by NineInchNachos on 6/10/2010 @ 11:38pm
|you guys crack me up.|
by L.S.Erhardt on 6/11/2010 @ 1:23am
|When it comes down to it, I think a protest at Wright would prove, beyond a doubt, that most Tacomans are staunchly pro-leaf.|
by Crenshaw Sepulveda on 6/11/2010 @ 1:39am
|I think we may be too far out on a limb on this, Thorax, it might be be better if we leaf this alone.|

Yes, the original O&J's are available. I put my original work up for sale in recycled frames and mats twice yearly, usually in July and December. Still looking for a venue for this July's display- usually a willing coffee shop works pretty well. (Otherwise, there's always Freighthouse Square..). Just remember that the originals are straight black ink on white paper- all of the shading and color are digital effects. (That's why each original sold comes with a print of the "As seen on FeedTacoma" version).
Signed prints of any given Ocryx and Joe are available year-round, grayscale (or color as appropriate) print on heavyweight watercolor paper, with or without recycled frame and mat.
@Thorax- regarding free WiFi and arboretists- I think their bark is worse than their byte.

|@jinx... talking with the TAM to feature CLAW in their upcoming 'mighty tacoma exhibit'
@Erik, you should totally buy some OJ comics.
