Spring is in the air, no? Time for some good old dark humor!!
This Tuesday, catch a special one-night-only screening of ”The Suicide Shop“. The Hollywood Theater will be screening the film at 9:30pm on March 12 as part of their “Rendez-Vous with French Cinema” series.
…imagine a city where people no longer have a taste for anything, to the point that the most flourishing store in town is the one that sells poisons and hanging ropes. But the store owner has just given birth to a child who is joy incarnate. In the Magasin des Suicides, the rot has set in.

On Saturday, February 23, let’s once again gather at the Oregon Zoo to enjoy some creature sketching! Bring whatever art supplies you desire, maybe a lunch, bundle up a bit, and we’ll share some art time. Please procure your own ticket and meet us just past the entrance gates at 10:30am (or just find everybody later, if you need to get there later). At 3pm we’ll gather at the cafe near the entrance to share our results. If the weather is lousy, don’t let it dissuade you– there’s plenty of beasties to draw in the dry, including Lily, the new elephant calf. Everyone is welcome!

On Friday, January 25, how about ending the week at ASIFA’s Karaoke Sketch Night, drinking and drawing and possibly singing with your fellow animators at Suki’s Bar (2401 SW 4th Ave, Portland)? Bring your sketchbook, grab a libation, and catch up over the dulcet sounds of an off-key Neil Diamond cover. There’s some great characters to draw in the throes of some serious performing. Karaoke starts at 9pm.
