Illustrator and owner of Birdcage Bottom Books J.T. Yost and I go waaaaay back. We spent many-a-night in Austin belting out songs of woe as part of Earl Bible and His Stories (yeah that’s right, a myspace link… you love it) back in ’99, and drank whiskey out of mayonnaise jars while busting out rhymes as part of acclaimed freestyle rap ensemble Fresh Animals. These days, JT is hard at work cranking out comics, screen printing, painting, and being a dad. And just this week he announced his Kickstarter-backed project DIGESTATE: A Food and Eating Themed Comic Anthology.
DIGESTATE will be a whopper (non-vegan food-themed pun intended) of a book: over 50 cartoonists and over 250 pages! This is no small effort. And to sweeten the deal, the numerous Kickstarter pledge levels have awesome rewards. So help J.T. and Birdcage Bottom Books raise the funds so that DIGESTATE sees the light of day!
