Li’l Depressed Boy vol 2 Release Party


Please join us on Friday, February 17th at 7pm to celebrate the release of Li’l Depressed Boy volume two!

LDB artist Sina Grace will be here signing books. Both Sina and his sister Salomeh will both be unveiling new artwork for the event, both of Li’l Depressed Boy and based off themes explored in the series. Sina’s brother-in-law Benoit will be DJing the event with tunes that may sound a bit familiar, if you’re reading the book closely enough. There will be prints for sale and free adult beverages for those that are so inclined.

See you there!
