this is the comics meetup that I have kind of been hosting.
by “hosting” I mean that I just… go to a café and wait for people to show up. and I bother people about it every week.
Regulars include: Elaine Lin, Lillian Beaty, Jacob Ferguson, and my roommate Alex Van Dorp. Sometimes Corey Lewis stops by. Cory Schmitz has never attended a meeting and now he’s moving away for 3 months :<
Last time, we got Kaz Strzepek and Aaron Mew to come out :3
(Aaron keeps not having a website so I don’t know what to link to)

Poster for a zine show that I’m in! There are some cool dudes that are also in it. Like Martine Workman, Jason T. Miles, and Lucy Morehouse. I have a lot of respect for each of these dudes. Or at least, I think they make pretty things.
I need to write my artist statement for this. I think I’m going to talk about minicomics vs webcomics (zines vs blogs). About how neither is better or worse. About how comics are comics.
The author of that zine vs blogs article, Jenna Freedman, came to visit Seattle a year or two ago for the first Zine Librarian’s (Un)Conference. She is like THE zine librarian. I had the privilege of talking with her, very briefly, about vegan pizza. And gluten-free dough, I think. Also I got to hear her talk a lot about zines, and cataloging, and whatever, which was great. She’s not anti-technology at all, but these days, I think about the ZVB argument a lot (which was written yeeears ago) and I feel like I have to defend the Internet a little bit.

Here’s that comic I made for/about Pilot Books again. But this time, as a picture post instead of a link.
(She was cute.)

I’M JUST GOING TO GO AHEAD AND POST THIS. CORY IS NOT ANSWERING MY INSTANT MESSAGES. I THINK HE’S DEAD. OH WELL.
The show actually ends at 9? And the design show is only up until the 22nd for SOME STUPID REASON. Our school’s website is disorganized and misleading so half of my information is wrong. (Yaaaaay).
Okay, now I have to make a facebook event and email blast some dudes. I wonder if I can get some bloggers to show up…
I don’t know if any of you guys are in Seattle, but you’re welcome to drop by if you’d like. It’s going to be pretttttyyyyy coooooool.
P.S. I’m bored.
