Rob and Ako live up the street from Secret Headquarters in what some would call a shack. They like to refer to the place as a log or The Log. The sad part of this story is not the living conditions, but the possible non-living conditions as The Log has been sold. Or is going to be sold. Either way, Sato started to pack. All books are boxed you’ll be happy to know. It might be safe to say that his Xeric award is tucked away in there as well. He won that prestigious grant a few years ago for his BURYING SANDWICHES graphic novel. Know this; he’s been compared to Winsor McCay – Wha’! (Though that review was from his cousin.)
What can we say about Sato’s partner in crime Ako Castuera? Actually, not much. We don’t know a goddamn thing about her. Except that she lives in The Log with a bunch of boxes. We are really on top of our game here at SHQ.
Rob and Ako will attend the opening from 8pm to 10pm. Have a beer while discussing the finer points of packing.
Secret Headquarters will feature Sato’s and Castuera’s one of a kind original works of art through April 30th, 2007.
