Apologies to our New York fans, but due to inclement weather, the HOTWIRE2 comics signing (at Rocketship) originally slated for tonight has been RESCHEDULED.
It has been pushed back to March 14th (Friday nite 8:00-10:00) at Rocketship..... it is NOT ON TONITE.
Hope to see you all then, and apologies on behalf of Mother Nature. Stay warm, all!
Craig Yoe's ARFLOVERS blog has a nice new interview up with cartoonist and Hotwire editor, Glenn Head. Craig and Glenn will of course be on hand at Rocketship this Friday as well, along with Jonathan Rosen, Sam Henderson, Danny Hellman, Mark Newgarden, David Sandlin, Chadwick Whitehead, R. Sikoryak, Doug Allen, Marc Dean Veca, and more!
Meanwhile, the response to the "open call" slot(s) for BEASTS! Book Two has been surprising and it's been fun to see the work of people I wouldn't have otherwise come across. I can't find time to respond to everyone and though there are a few standout pieces we're all looking forward to seeing more before the March 1st deadline...
Want to submit something? Here are the details...
Jeremy Eaton is collaborating with outsider musician Willy Blanefield III over at Blanefield's MySpace page, with Eaton providing illustrations for each of Blanefield's mercurial songs (with titles such as "Retarded" and "We Burned Frank Sinatra"). Meanwhile, Eaton is selling the originals over at Comic Art Collective, including this amazing Shaft-as-literal-sex-machine Kirby homage.
Join Ellen for a multimedia reading and performance next Thursday!
