Attention Chicagoland -- Uncle Fun, that celebrated purveyor of novelties new and old, plastic whimsy and sundry miscellany, is rolling out their red carpet to the Misanthrope Specialty Company for a day, this coming Saturday June 20th.

Our traveling portrait artist, Reverend Aitor, will be setting up shop in the store window. He will be scribbling out Unflattering Portraits from 11 am to 6 in the pm. Those interested interested in being purposely and professionally unflattered are advised to book your appointment in advance. Sittings will be held every hour on the hour.

To book an appointment, simply click on the comments section at the end of this posting and claim any hour that isn't already claimed. Portraits take about thirty to forty minutes and are done by donation. Pay what you think it's worth.
