Stumptown Badge Art

In a long post about a whole lotta stuff, that he accrued on his most recent travels, The Spurge featured a picture of his Stumptown badge as seen above.

In all the rush leading up to (and during Stumptown) I'm not sure I remembered to mention that I did the artwork for the badges.

Well, all I did was the line art. The colorwork and typography was all superbly rendered by Jenn Manley Lee.

I have absolutely zero idea of exactly where and when I first met Jenn and her husband, Kip. But it was a very long time ago and almost certainly through Ivy and Scott McCloud. They were part of Scott and Ivy's first group of "Kids" as Ivy recently wrote about.

And just so you can see how much elegance Jenn contributed to the embellishment of my simple drawing--here it is!

Tell me this isn't a future scenario of what happens to Gran'Ma'Pa? Little Bean cottages? Yikes!
