Here's just a small selection of some awesome food I had in Portland. From top to bottom, Los Gorditos II (all vegan taqueria) located just a few steps from Grass Hut, Voodoo Doughnut's glazed vegan doughnut, Bwana's homemade vegan waffles.

We visited Bonneville Hatchery yesterday to see their Sturgeon pond. Though we didn't get t view the largest of their sturgeon (the water was a little murky), we did get to see several pretty big ones. These fish are amazing, with features unlike any others. Thanks to Justin, our guide from Grass Hut.

Marsh's Free Museum in Long Beach, Washington is half cheesy gift shop, and half stuffed animal museum. Their claim to fame is an alligator man named Jake. Jake is actually a lot smaller than a man, more like a small boy, his skin dried black from age. "I Brake for Jake" bumper stickers, pencils, and t-shirts were just a few of the souvenirs available.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by the opening reception tonight, and thanks to Rick Widmayer of the Screen Door for cooking up some great food for the event. We had an awesome time. The show will be up for the entire month of January. If you're not a local, check out the Grass Hut Store to view or purchase pieces.

The show is looking really good, with hand made shelving made of wood, logs, and driftwood. The figures are displayed with moss and plants from today's hike. In addition to the custom painted figures, there are several paintings by Chanmen and Katope, as well as photographs. Here are a few figures of mine, mini and standard Zagorans, Matango, and Mini Rokuron.

The Gargamel Gang show opens this Friday at Grass Hut in Portland. New artwork by Chanmen, Katope, Kiyoka and Naoya Ikeda, and myself. A new Tokoji Seijin release as well as a new Gargamel sculpt. I can't believe it's already time. Still have a little bit more to do before we leave on Wednesday. I'm pretty excited as I haven't visited Portland since I was a little kid. The opening is from 6-9 PM. Hope to see some of you there.
