before i give out the details, i just wanted to share a short story. when i first came out to california, one of the first shows i went to was GRAFUCK 3. i went to check out my main man ed, and i thought wow- what a cool show to be in... and it was a dream for me to even be considered a part of a project like that.
a year and a half later, i find myself honoured to be part of such a cool project that has evolved so amazingly in just four volumes.
ok enough, just wanted to anecdote it for a second; been so lucky to have all these opportunities and so many of my dreams coming true- i wanted to make sure to be thankful.
and now the official stuff:
