I am proud to announce that I have several pieces in a gallery show on autobiographical comics & visual narratives at The New City Galerie in Burlington, Vermont opening June 5th! I have one page stories and book portraits on display along side the works of Alex Costantino, Glynnis Fawkes, and Jennifer Hayden. All this and I made the POSTER! Woohoo!
Sadly, I will not be at the opening as I will be in California celebrating the dual birthdays of my brother and sister on June 5th–but if you are in the area, please go see it for me will you?
in case you are anywhere near New City, NY tomorrow night, I will be teaching an Introduction to Making Comics Workshop at The New City Library at 7:00pm! No experience or artistic “skills” necessary–just a willingness to try. We will have fun! Adults and teens only. It’s free, but registration is required. More information here.
Just in case, here’s the B. Kliban cartoon a little larger:
Oh my golly, MoCCA Fest was fun and exhausting. There were so many people and so many things to see. It was my first time tabling and I learned almost immediately that due to the sheer amount of stuff to look at, if some stranger stops and REALLY LOOKS at your work it is because they are either 1) randomly curious 2) somebody told them to. By Sunday I was literally in front of the table yelling things to get people’s attention. Sometimes it worked! It helped that my table mates were my audience–I mainly did things to crack them up. This was easy. By Sunday we were all punchy as hell from sheer exhaustion.
Some of you stopped by and I *loved* meeting you! THANK YOU for coming by! DOUBLE thanks for buying my wares. You helped me make my table fee back!
Mainly, the weekend just felt like a delicious cartoonist smorgasbord. I met amazing people, completely nerded out on cartoon and comics stuff (who else who reference a B. Kliban comic??), and felt overwhelmed with gratitude that I have at last (in this funny late stage) discovered my community. I have always wanted to find you, comics people. You are a funny, nerdy, lumpy group and it is an honor and a privilege to be among you!
