PHXDW 2019 Closing Party hosted by Artisan Colour

Join us and our hosts at Artisan Colour as we declare that print is not dead on C-M-Y-Friday! Our awesome PHXDW 2019 Print Partner will be throwing open their doors and providing food trucks and beverages for all, with music, photo booth, and guided plant tours.

And at 7:00PM, It's A Talk Show w/ Kerri Gallagher is bringing her monthly brunch comedy show to primetime, with a PHXDW edition! Special guests include Leslie Barton, voted best PHX Comic (and a Graphic Designer) and Ray Howard, an awesome comic (and an industrial designer). The panel decides who’s HOT and NOT in the comic world, will play the Logo and C-M-Y-Color games and other fun trivia. Audience participation gets you freebies and prizes, and get ready — a few of you will be asked to test your design chops with Kerri!

Oh, and make sure to bring the PHXDW Poker Crawl cards you’ve collected all week — the person who makes the best poker hand wins a ticket to the PHXDW 2020 Conference. In case of a tie, we’ll have a live play-off.

Leslie BartonLeslie Barton
Leslie Barton is a stand-up comic and graphic designer in Phoenix, Arizona. Since 2009, she has worked her way up the local comedy ladder…the old-fashioned way with years of open mics, the occasional feature and headliner, and hosting whenever requested. Leslie hopes to help the world through laughter, and sarcasm. (Mostly sarcasm.)

Raymond HowardRaymond Howard
Raymond is an industrial designer and just a local queer-median in these streets! Raymond was the winner of House of Comedy's Drop The Mic and Comic Cure and Runner-Up Hamburger Mary’s Long Beach Talent show.
