The Coupeville MusselFest

I did a few sketches of Coupeville's Musselfest last weekend for one of our local papers, The Whidbey Examiner. It's an award winning publication focused on the Whidbey Island community, and local news and government. It's also the only locally owned, independent newspaper on Whidbey Island. Kasia Pierzga heads the paper. Thanks Kasia!

  1. Great! Is it in today's Examiner? In color? Will it be online? I can't find it.
