HEY, YOU WITH THE FACE!
IT’S EMILY CARROLL’S SUPER-DEF POSTER FOR SPX 2014!
Leveled off from that San Diego Comic-Con rush?
Good, because starting RIGHT NOW we’re kicking off a fight to the finish for the 2014 Small Press Expo. You’ve got about six weeks to get your mind right for the biggest and best independent comics festival in the country.
All of the details for SPX 2014 are listed above on our event poster created by the INCOMPARABLE EMILY CARROLL. We’re so lucky to have Emily joining us as a special guest this year and to have her contribute her talents to our damn-fool idealistic crusade.
Not familiar with Emily? Her latest work - and first printed volume, Through the Woods was just reviewed on NPR. Give a listen!
Maybe it goes without saying, we hope you’ll pay us a visit in September.
Aside from being a part of the most congenial, rollicking, drinking-from-the-firehose indie comics event you can imagine, every one of you who attends directly supports the SPX mission - promoting, protecting and preserving independent comics (more about that later…).
See you soon - and, if you don’t mind - help us spread the word!
Drawing Drunk in July: Part I
WARNING: For the most part, I was not sober.
These figures were done at Drink and Draw @BatHausCowork in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY. Heck of a time :) ‘
Next step; printing and binding.
Dear Tumblrverse! I am excited, and more than a little terrified, to announce that I’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign for my nonfiction graphic novel project, The Soviet. Please click the link to find out more, but for now know that I’m just one chapter away from finishing all 223 pages of it, and I (desperately) need your help to finish the last remaining stretch, send the book to a printer, and ship it to potential publishers! I took a year off from grad school in order to write it, and lived entirely on savings for the past year in order to complete it. It’s been a labor-intensive and immensely time-consuming process— almost everything was done by hand, and I created a hand-drawn font specifically for the graphic novel— but I’m excited to finally (hopefully) get this work out there. It’s been in the works since SPX 2012, when I volunteered at the fest and passed around minicomics to anyone I could find. And now it’s *almost* entirely done, and just need help getting it printed and distributed.
Hope you enjoy!
Here’s a look at Eleanor Davis’s 2014 SPX library gift bookplate. We’re so thankful to Eleanor for creating this great piece and LIKEWISE grateful that she’ll join us as a special guest at SPX in just a few short weeks.
That’s another way of saying what the heck are you doing the weekend of September 13? If it ain’t SPX you’re missin’ out!
