Street View 145: Brett
I missed Brett Manning on this blog... See more of her cool new hairdo on my Bleader post here, and check out her fabulous art here (I don't mean to brag, but I have a wall covered with Brett Mannings).
She is now making comics, which are filled with witches, cats and powerful independent girls. Enjoy a sample below:
Brett is currently looking for a publisher, if you have a lead email her at email@example.com

Karyn, Mike and Merl at Market Supply Co.
Market Supply Co.
Pilsen has become quite the destination for vintage clothing enthusiasts, with the proliferation of first-rate second-hand shops such as Knee Deep, Pilsen Vintage, Modern Cooperative and Comet. Reinforcing the trend is the recently opened Market Supply Co., a mixture of an old-school barbershop and a vintage boutique run by Mustache Mike, a Minneapolis style celebrity who's been cutting hair since he was nine, plus Karyn Dethrow and Merl Kinzie, two extremely knowledgeable local vintage sellers. Expect to find a well-curated selection of garments in mint condition dating all the way back to the thirties and handmade eco-friendly accessories.
