The show was opening at 6pm, but by about 5:30 a line of excited fans had started to form. In line the fans chatted about how they found out about McPherson's work. Many had discovered her from the show posters she has done for bands from the punk, hardcore, and metal music scenes. Shortly after 6 the doors opened and the fans drooled over the prints that hung on the walls.
McPherson was very friendly and took the time to chat with each fan for a little while as she doodled and sketched in books or on toys. She even added a little personal touch to the framed pieces on the walls, adding a little doodle at the buyer's request. A soundtrack of music by bands that McPherson has worked with played in the background, I think it's the first time I have heard Mastodon play in a gallery space.
I had the opportunity to check out their first issue and was really impressed with every aspect of this comic! If you guys are really digging what you are seeing and want to see more, just visit the BlackList Studios site HERE. I totally like the illustration style and the story is fantastic. I am sooooo into this and look forward to seeing more from these guys!

Ruby Winkle pursues an evasive night of sleep with her teddy bear companion, Garble. She comically uses science, sleuth work and inventions to regain her loss of sleep. She also questions the supernatural possibilities of a monster and turns to the magic of hypnosis to aid her quest for rest. Along the way, Ruby meets several characters who try to help her relentless search. Skats, the beatnik bat, demonstrates his freestyle form of sleep and Dink, the glowworm nightlight, offers his illuminating guidance. After a sequence of ingenious attempts and trials,
it is Rubys mother who offers the easiest suggestion
for a night of zzz...s.
