We love us some pit bulls and we love us some Jen Oaks and we love us some cute-ass shit so WHAT’S UP PIT BULL VALENTINES!?!? I am buying a million of these and declaring my love all willy-nilly to every Tom, Dick, and Harry who passes my way. Homeless gentleman who washed my car windows without asking and then wanted $5? I LOVE YOU, TOO.
Get Thee to East Bay Alternative Press Festival in Berkeley TODAY! »
If you live in the Bay Area, then cram another thing onto your already-overflowing calendar, for today is the East Bay Alternative Press Festival! Why is this of interest to vegans, you ask? Well, for one, it’s location puts it in quick walking distance from Saturn Cafe, Cinnaholic, and Green Papaya, but also, Friend of Vegansaurus, Erika from Soyfucker comics is going to be there, so you can stock up on her cuss-laden vegan comics zines to give to all your friends and family this holiday season. Huzzah! Plus, our Jonas will be there with Family Style, Jen Oaks, Susie Cagle, and many more veg favorites!
What’s more, Erika came up with her own list of reasons you should check it out:
- It’s free to attend.
- Local writers and arteests.
- Zines and the such make great holiday presents.
- We have 100% less burning sage than the Telegraph Holiday Street Fair.
So, come on down! Meet some folks! Buy some presents! Eat some stuff! It’ll be a grand old time, and I can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
OMG IT’S A WIENER DOG CHRISTMAS!! How g-d cute are these cards?? They are from veggie artist and Vegansaurus BFF Jen Oaks, who is the most talented. Seriously, look at her stuff. JUST LOOK AT IT! Also, how amazing is this Oklahoma Animals posters? Every kid in your life needs it. And adult. And I’ll take three! Seriously, email and I’ll give you my address. I mean my P.O. box I DON’T KNOOOOOW YOU.*
*PSYCH! I ain’t got no POB. Who do I look like? Someone who has their shit together?? No, I will give you my actual address to send love letters to/ask for money (I’m flush! act now, people!), and/or stalk and kill. Whatevs!
Happy Thanksgiving from super-Friends of Vegansaurus Jen Oaks and her husband Will Scovill! Their plate is barely holding FatFree Vegan’s green bean casserole, roasted garlic mashed potatoes, mixed-mushroom and tarragon gravy (halved and veganized) from Bon Appétit, brown sugar, maple, pecan, and coconut sweet potatoes, organic canned cranberry sauce, and granny’s hurry-up dinner rolls from VegWeb!
Jen, for next year can we come to you house? We promise to bring whatever and however many desserts your heart desires! Happy Thanksgiving!

In other zine and comic news, SF Zine Fest is coming up (Labor Day weekend, Sept. 4 and 5!) and lots of awesome veg artists are gonna be there, including Jesse Reklaw (he made this year’s Zine Fest amazing poster too!), Ashley from Fat Bottom Bakery with Barefoot and in the Kitchen, Rick and Eve of Monkey + Seal (seriously BUY THIS!), Minty Lewis from P.S. Comics, Susie Cagle, Jen Oaks (OMG BUY THIS!! Oklahoma Animals FTW!), and our own Jonas Madden-Connor. SO MUCH TALENT!!
OH ALSO, I am making a zine. It is about being fat and it’s called FAT ZINE. It comes with free candy because that’s how fat people do. Susie and Jen are doing sexy fat lady drawings and there might be glitter involved. Lots and lots of glitter. Y’all ready for this?
Our good friend Jen says: give me a sunny back porch, my abandoned knitting projects, and a few of these, please.
We say: AGREED! Also, the Paloma is made with Los Jarritos Grapefruit Soda which is deliciously readily available in the Mission. Sometimes I thnk there is a God. But then I think about Star Jones and I know I’m wrong. Or at least, our God is a vengeful one. Ugh. I can’t even hold the fact that she’s married to real-life Big Gay Al over her head anymore. I have nothing left to live for. Except the Paloma. SO CONFUSED ABOUT GOD.
