Local artists collaborate with the Portland Opera to capture Puccini's Turandot in comics form

Twenty-five local cartoonists attended a special dress rehearsal of Puccini's Turandot at the Portland Opera, where they captured their impressions of the evening in comics form.  Comics Night at the Opera is the brainchild of Portland Opera's publicity and publications manager Julia Sheridan, P.R. and marketing coordinator Claudie Fisher, and CulturePulp's Mike Russell, who join S.W. Conser in the KBOO studios.



I can't believe I get to participate in events like this. And the fact that you quoted me alongside Erika Moen and Ron Chan and Terri Nelson and so many other incredible Portland artists is such an honor. I only wish I didn't try and sound cultured by referencing L'Italiana in Algeri. That was Rossini, not Puccini...d'oh!
