***STATE OF THE C.L.A.W. ADDRESS OR NO.2'S PLEDGE TO THE WORLD BEGINS NIGH TRANSCRIPT***

My fellow adamantium talons of the CLAW, friends of CLAW across the airwaves, CLAW cadets and Citizen fanbots! This is your new No. 2 speaking on behalf of my new capacity as 1 of 4 of the High CLAW Council of the Four Eyes... EYEBALL!
  • I pledge to boost enrollment of our ranks... in particular I'd like to reach out to lady cartoonists and lady illustrators in the community.  I will listen and report back suggestions for making our league more appealing to these market groups.
  • I pledge to really push hard for our much delayed 501c non profit status... EYEBALL!
  • I pledge to organize members to complete their member gallery about page with samples of portfolio work and basic minimum of contact information!
  • I pledge to promote our CLAW college art student scholarship program at every opportunity. This is a record setting year. I hope to match in the year to come! 
  • I pledge forward motion on our CLAW anthology self-published book!
  • I pledge honest feedback and portfolio reviews of work. Our skills must ever be sharpened... no talon left behind!
  • I pledge more life drawing! tutorial nights! movie riff nights!  challenges to other drawing/craft/activity groups!
  • I pledge more community power team ups! We have got some awesome cartoon strips going here, lets see if we can't get them into some publications around here!
  • I pledge to put the absurd back in Absurd Washingtonians... EYEBALL! 

May the power of the cosmos be with you!

Congrats on #300 @RR. You, the Tacomic, and CLAW are all great local institutions. We're lucky to have you.

Congrats on #300 RR!

Perhaps C.L.A.W. will one day rule Tacoma with an iron fist as secret societies used to many years ago.

Rehabilitate Robert Hill and get him into the C.L.A.W. program as his present career (Politicisn) is highly unlikely to succeed

These are great goals! My suggestion would be some times to meet just to draw, rather than a themed activity. Not that those aren't fun too, but drawing is more fun with other people! And movie riff nights and challenges to other craft/art groups are awesome ideas.
