I got to design a float from scratch this year for a Mardi Gras dog parade in Sandestin. The parade occurred Feb 15, and my float won first place! As I was coming up with the design I researched the original line-up for Woodstock and converted some of the acts into dog-friendly versions: Joe Cocker Spaniel, Bloodhound, Sweat & Tears, Bone Baez, Jimi Houndrix, and Sly & the Family Bone. The float looked like a psychedelic VW bus driven by Brody the dog (his owner Bart was hidden behind a curtain doing the real driving). This is Brody's 5th parade win.
Did you know - John Porcellino (mini-comic zine mastermind, distro hero, documentary subject and fascinating human being) called THE PORTABLE NOT MY SMALL DIARY "A great introduction to one of the most important comic-zines in history." How's that for cred? Order your copy now!
