Fred Noland draws from a deep well of inspiration ranging from
the Expressionists to Underground Comics. His illustrations have
appeared in the SF Weekly, LA Weekly, Tennis, Bike, Nickelodeon,
Canoe and Kayak, Illinois Times, XboX Magazine, TokyoPop,
Santa Fe Reporter and more. His sequential art has been featured
in the Cartoon Art Museum, and the Oakland Museum at the OAK
installation. He has also taken part in group shows at San Francisco’s
SOMARTS and Amaru Galleries and RPS in Oakland.
As a cartoonist, he has produced a series of increasingly innovative and
eccentric minis. His current project, Black Sheep, features his most
ambitious work yet. The six-part “Neighborhood of the Beast” explores
the darker side of suburbia. Other highlights include the Southern Gothic
Midnight Creep and his self proclaimed “jam comic from hell” Mantequilla
del Pato (with the incomparable Trevor Alixopulos).
Check out his twitter too.
That’s right, you guessed it. Fred Noland will be at Bookish Beasts. Come show support for all these incredible local artists.

Kayt Sukel- The Big “O”: The Science of Orgasm
Tuesday, June 26, 7:30pm
Held at the Center for Sex and Culture
1349 Mission St. Btwn. 9th & 10th., San Francisco, CA
$5-10 sliding scale, NOTAFLOF
Books will be available for purchase!
While some might suggest the human brain dematerializes at orgasm, scientists are learning that it’s a whole brain kind of experience. Kayt Sukel, author of DIRTY MINDS: HOW OUR BRAINS INFLUENCE LOVE, SEX AND RELATIONSHIPS, is one of the few women in the world who has had her brain scanned at the point of sexual climax in a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scanner. She will openly discuss her own experience, what scientists are learning about the big O—and explain why its study has implications for our understanding of pain, pleasure and human consciousness.
Kayt Sukel is the author of the critically acclaimed book, DIRTY MINDS: HOW OUR BRAINS INFLUENCE LOVE, SEX AND RELATIONSHIPS.
A passionate traveler and science writer, her work has appeared in the Atlantic Monthly, the New Scientist, USAToday, the Washington Post, ISLANDS, Parenting, the Bark, AmericanBaby, and the AARP Bulletin. She is a partner at the award-winning family travel website Travel Savvy Mom, and is also a frequent contributor to the Dana Foundation’s many science publications. Much of her work can be found on her website, including stories about out-of-body experiences, computer models of schizophrenia, and exotic travel with young children. She lives outside Houston and frequently overshares onTwitter as @kaytsukel
