Now Where is that F***ing Minneapolis?

Being that last week's cartoon featured Bozeman, this one features another of Devin's homes. Here, God is ready to strike Minneapolis, home of Devin and Leftist Lips Press, with a lightning bolt. I don't know too much about this zine, "That Which You Have Never Imagined Has Already Eaten Half Your Brain," but it seems to be a collaboration between Devin and another artist. Here's the cover of Issue #1, which may have been the only issue.
At least this zine was made. Devin and I briefly worked on a zine about the Crazy Bastard Party together, and I know we collaborated on several pages, but all I have been able to find were a few pages that I made myself.

Meanwhile Back in Bozeman, Montana...

Devin's triangle sunglasses artist character has snapped his fingers and landed back in Bozeman, Montana, where the locals hang out on the street corner and talk or catch spiders on their tongues. This is another one that Devin made into a postcard and most likely sold at Cactus Records on Main Street in Bozeman. It's even signed and dated by him. This was made somewhere around the time when he started moving back and forth between Montana and Minneapolis. Bozeman was maybe looking a little strange after being away for a few weeks.

It's Weird

Here's another comic about art. In it, Devin's artist alter-ego character, a recurring character in his cartoons, is getting some feedback on his latest artist creation from an audience of critics who are actually much stranger than they really think they are. The audience may be even crazier than the crazy art that the crazy artist has created, which is definitely a dilemma that artists who flirt with the weird, like Devin did, must alway face: what if your conservative audience of critics is really stranger than the strange art that you are trying to make to blow their minds?

Jesse Helms Safe Art Museum

Devin was always political and not afraid to blast those who were using their power in crazy ways. Here is is mocking Senator Jesse Helms, who in 1989 blasted public funding of art because of the work of Robert Mapplethorpe and Andres Serrano.
