by Erkuden Sakana, Company Secretary;
May is rapidly approaching and the fleet needs fuelling; not to mention a little seed money to kickstart the convoy. And so, the Company has undertaken a number of commissions to help raise some funds.

Fortunately, there is an abundance of live music and comedy in this city for the Company to tap vampirously into. There was little more to do than send word through the proper channels that the Misanthrope Specialty Co. and many of its individual members were making themselves available for one week to illustrate a limited number of local gig posters at the introductory price of PWYC. It didn't take long before everyone's dance card was full.

But the fundraising drive doesn't end there. Gas isn't cheap, after all.

In an shameless endeavor to capitalise twice on the same projects, it has been decided that much of the original artwork for said posters will form the backbone for the Company's next one-night Clubhouse exhibition.

Stay tuned for details as they arise. What is known thus far is that the show will consist of gig posters and related hired art both by the Company and its individual members. There will be liquor, music, and perhaps a little dancing. All the art will be sold by donation on a first come first serve basis.
