My usual setup at Phoenix Fan Fusion nee Phoenix Comicon nee Cactus Con.

FU-GA-ZI

GI Slang for “Fouled Up, Gone Awry, Zipped In” (there’s a less polite version you can find if you go hunting). Denotes a hopeless situation.

STUDIO FUGAZI

When I started out in design, the majority of my work came from helping people out of Fugazi-like situations. They hired cheap, got cheap, and needed me to come in and clean up what had come before me. The name just kind of showed up. Since then, the studio has morphed into many other endeavors…comics, artwork, and now puppetry…but I still enjoy helping people solve their design problems most of all…
