Damaris, The Gutter Artist, invites you to join the Lynda Barry Revolution

The Gutter Artist Finds a Side-Kick
This month's ATC's (Artist Trading Cards) are morphing into honoring Lynda Barry, Cartoonist extraordinaire. She is one of the finalists (again) for the Reuben Award, which will be presented to the winner May 26, in Philadelphia, PA. I know I should list the other nominees, but I'll just link to the Comics Super Blog and let you find out for yourself: http://smashpages.net/tag/awards/

Just posting into the void. The Gutter Artist Out.
