Andromeda: Meet our new mascot -- does he need a name?

Corvax McCarthy? (I know CM doesn't live in Alaska, but I couldn't resist.)

Jack? Or Black Jack? (For Jack London...)



A favorite AK author would be a good fit, but I'm not so sure about naming him after any one still living. We tried that with the airport and it's been -- ah -- interesting.

Any ideas? Anyone wondering when we'll put him on our first T-shirt or tote bag? (I'm first in line for the T-shirt,)

The logo, which I absolutely love, was designed for the new 49 Alaska Writing Center & Raven Place Guesthouse by local artist Lance Lekander. You may have seen his artwork in AK galleries or in the Anchorage Daily News. Thanks, Lance!

I think this will be our topic of discussion at the Red Onion tonight!

Regarding a name for the gorgeous raven, how bout Dudley Do Write?

Black Jack is wonderful! T-shirt, sweatshirt, jacket, pin, mug -- I can see him everywhere.

If we want to honor a deceased Alaskan writer, how about Ruben Gaines? Or we could name him after a Robert Service character for fun?
