April CNW meeting
Sat. April 19, 2008 - 6:00 PM
The Art Institute of Seattle, North Campus,
Room 503 (Real Networks Bldg.)
2600 Alaskan Way, Seattle, WA 98121
Use main entrance at corner of Alaskan Vine. Street parking is free beginning at 6 PM.

Friends of furry fandom rejoice, for Steve Gallacci will be decelerating from the Rim of Known Space (where his name is forever etched upon a planet called the CNW Hall of Fame!) and landing at the meeting as guest speaker!

Steve is the progenitor of the awesome
Albedo Anthropomorphics comics. He started
Albedo under his own Thoughts & Images imprint in 1983. Among some of the storylines in Albedo are Steve’s own “Erma Felna: EDF”, a military sci-fi epic featuring elements of political intrigue, and Stan Sakai’s “Usagi Yojimbo”, which first appeared in the famously-rare Albedo #2.
Also under his Thoughts & Images imprint, the
first issues of Donna Barr’s The Desert Peach
and a single issue of his own fantasy adventure
Zell, Sworddancer with art assistance by
Steve Adams, were also published.

Steve Gallacci is truly a seasoned traveler of the tooniverse! What nuggets of wisdom will he bestow upon all those who attend the April meeting?? The rules of engagement are simple: Be there, and find out!
