Stranger Suggests: Ellen Forney!
(MULTIMEDIA READING) Seattle artist and Stranger contributor Ellen Forney has made her name illustrating the edgier elements of life—kicking smack, succeeding as a call girl, fucking a woman with your hands—in a style so sweet and warm it goes down like honey. Tonight, Forney celebrates the publication of her brand-new, career-spanning Fantagraphics collection, I Love Led Zeppelin—featuring choice collaborations with Margaret Cho, Dan Savage, and yours truly—with a multimedia reading/book-release party.
