That was awesome, it's like a two-for-one. Plus, because only the top half fits the screen, when you scroll down it's a total surprise ending. Great stuff.

Is that a particular character from Native American mythology (or Puyallup mythology)?

by AngelaJossy on 6/2/2009 @ 10:00am
Yes I totally agree. And Puyallup is so scary! I can't believe Puyallup just bit his head right off like that!

The City of Puyallup mythos character is a fusion of spanish artist Francisco Goya's "Saturn Devouring his Son"


and the Tlingit Bear and or Killer Whale.



Some day I'd like to do a cartoon referencing the amazing WOODEN WAR COLLARS of the Tlingit warriors...

war collar

I thought I could fit it in this one but alas it didn't happen.

There's at least one thing that Puyallup is home to that is way ahead of it's neighbors:
(The photos aren't updated from last year yet - A new batch was rotated in, including at least one repeat Tacoma artist.)

This stuff won't stop:

Tribune staffers taking furloughs
Posted by John Gillie @ 06:25:18 pm

The News Tribune today announced week-long unpaid furloughs for its workforce.

The furloughs are part of an expense-reduction plan drawn up early this year to cope with the recession-related advertising revenue shortfalls at the Tacoma paper, said News Tribune Publisher David Zeeck.

Employees will schedule the unpaid time off during this year’s second half.

I wonder where all the rodents are going in this economy. It is not as if there are other newspapers doing a lot of hiring.
