Citizens of Chicago: The Misanthrope Specialty Co. is heading to the Windy City for their final stop on the Renegade circuit.  Let's make this one count.

The M.S.Co. Away Team will once again be sharing a tent with long-time comrade-in-arms and frequent travel companion, Sweetie Pie PressYou can find them at booth # 32, on Division Street (between Winchester and Wolcott), where they will be desperately hocking all manner of prints, handmade ephemera and a selection of original drawings and paintings.

And let's not forget the Unflattering Portrait Project.  The Misanthropes will be at the ready to lovingly preserve your oft-ignored flaws for posterity.  No laugh line is too deep; no blackhead too small. Embrace your cold sore, under-eye baggage and bot fly cysts.  They are a part of who you are and shouldn't be glossed over or ignored.  Sit down, relax, stop sucking in you gut and let your turkey neck swing proudly as one of the Company's qualified portraitists work their magic.
