Once upon a time, Lisa and Adrienne worked for the same alternative newsweekly. Now, both spend their respective lives mining their creative souls and leading hermit-like lives. And so an idea was hatched. Every week, one would send the other a sketch—either in illustration or word form—and the other would make a companion to the sketch. The result would be posted on both their blogs every week, just for grins. Even if the result isn't award-worthy, the exercise makes both minds more nimble. Hopefully.

Dear Austin; The message that you are done with me has been received loud and, in fact, clear. Not only was the signing a complete bust (with the exception of finally meeting in person the lovely Wayne Alan Brenner and his delightful bride Katherine Kiger), I got rear-ended (not code) by an old bearded hippie dude driving a truck literally held together with duct tape.

Adrienne Martini I'm fine, btw. I thank all the stars in the state that liquor laws let you buy beer by the bottle at the grocery store. The clerk must have though I was a relapsing alcoholic, tho.

Adrienne Martini Especially when you buy beer based on whether or not it has a screw cap.
