Myself and some fellow Minneapolis comic artists have started a group blog called ARMAGETTO FABULOUS. We do weekly themes, this week being Jack Kirby's demon, Etrigan. This is my contribution, and probably the last time I'll cross-post something from there:

My friend owns a tree farm out by Maiden Rock in Wisconsin. It is a beautiful, unspoiled place that's walking distance from a number of awe-inspiring views of the Mississippi River. One morning last summer, my friend woke up to the sound of a bunch of unannounced workers chainsawing through his land, removing all the branches that were 30 feet on either side of his power lines.
For safety's sake these branches have to be removed, but the idea of having his land look like Godzilla stomped a path through it was of course unappealing. The alternative: bury the power lines, which costs more money than he just has lying around. His solution: a series of fundraiser parties. I did a series of buttons for his sale.
