Crispy [hype] Voted “Most Likely to DJ at the Fiction Clemens Party” in High
School, Crispy’s destiny has nearly been fulfilled. Witness the moment
when one man meets his future and boldly proceeds into the
Jesiah, (pants) has been charming the northwest with a wicked boyish
charisma for years. And now he is going to seduce your pants off (to
add to his collection) with some wild western shenanigans.
Thee Bad Pioneer 2000, aka Matty2K, hails from the wild west of the future
where the chickens have run the foxes out of town, where the piggies get
the first course AND the sloppy seconds. This is the land of the Hed, a

Artists: In the Velvet Lounge
Josh Wagner will be presenting artwork from his 3-part graphic novel,
“FictionClemens”, upstairs in the velvet lounge. Wagner is a
vagabond, novelist, filmmaker, and comic creator who couldn’t draw a
stick-man to save his grandma’s life. Lucky for his grandma, Josh has
found brilliant artists in Argentina to do his drawing for him. Since
they can’t make it, Josh will be showcasing their work, a disturbing
display of the disproportionate and the cartoony… vivid
hallucinogenic landscapes, and characters who wear their souls on
Tatiana Gill is an artistic force to be reckoned with, as the
accomplished illustrator of Strange Day fame. Tats is sought out as
an artist due to her masterful yet irreverent abilities to capture
life as hilarity. A skillful-clever artist with a well rounded
portfolio and the best sense of humor this side of the Mississippi.
Freedom Drudge, comic creator, sketch-artist, and tattoo-master, will
be showcasing his work upstairs in the velvet lounge. Freedom’s
creation combines a nightmarish love for the monstrous and bizarre
with a uniquely urban flair. From little ditties like “The Sock that
was Mean” to his post-apocalyptic epic “the Spoils”, Freedom’s mind is
an uncontainable inkwell of creativity and artistic innovation.
Siya Oum will bring her gorgeous pencils and colors to the Velvet
Lounge. Up-and-coming illustrator, designer, and comic artist living
in Seattle, Siya is known for her sophisticated take on anime
stylings. Her current project, “Executive Assistant”, a story inspired
by real events between the late 70’s and 80’s, where senior
executives in Asia began to groom their female executive assistants to
be trained killers – taking the term “corporate warfare” to a new
And finally, Taki Soma, artist of the hit webcomic “You’ll Never Die”,
will be showcasing her amazing artwork and taking requests for
