Artist Guest Myles Pinkney
A Note from a Friend:
Myles and I met, appropriately enough, through an art contest when we were both in the seventh grade.
We each had our partisan friends who thought we were "the best artist in school", but rather than becoming fierce competitors,
we became fast friends, spending lunch hours discussing perspective, philosophy, and favorite artists. While the seventh grade
contest was never decided, a year later, Myles won first place in the school art show. Over the years Myles has gone on to win
innumerable awards, but I know that the opinions of friends, family, and those who enjoy his work are more important to him.
Gaming Guest James Ernest
James Ernest has been living for many years under a small rock named Charlie. He is easily confused, and he likes food, getting stuff,
and people who are not screaming. In 1996 he started a small game company called Cheapass Games, where he now lives with his wife and
young daughter. Surrounded by dust and paper, the family enjoys pleasant games of Bitin' Off Hedz and yearns for another, less-expensive
trip to Disneyland.
