Postcard- Ypsilanty

The Misanthrope Specialty Company is headed North, and zeroing in on the Wolverine State. Soon its unwashed hordes will descend upon Ypsilanti to take part in the Shadow Art Fair for the first time.

As is too often the case, Reverend Aitor will be at the table, carving out new territory for his Unflattering Portrait Project.

Portraits will be drawn just about every hour on the hour and are done by donation. Simply pay what you can, or think it's worth. Walk-ins are welcome, but those who wish a guaranteed spot are advised to schedule a sitting in advance.

It should also be noted that due to time restrictions and the Company's general rules of decorum, parties arriving more than seven minutes late for their appointment will lose their reservations. Punctuality is key.
