Fantagraphics at Short Run Small Press Fest Seattle!
Written by janice headley | Filed under T Edward BakstaffRoberta GregoryPeter BaggePat MoriarityNate NealMomeMichael DowersMegan KelsoLilli CarréJulia GfrörerJosh SimmonsJim WoodringJim BlanchardFantagraphics BookstoreeventsEroyn FranklinEric ReynoldsEllen ForneyDavid LaskyDash ShawAndrice Arp 22 Nov 2013 11:13 AM

Fantagraphics is thrilled to be part of the third annual Short Run Small Press Fest here in Seattle on Saturday, November 30th at historic Washington Hall in the Central District. Even though Short Run is a festival spotlighting self-published works, limited editions, and handmade books, Fantagraphics will have a presence in many, many ways, as you will see below...

• Visit the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery at Table L-51 on the first floor of Washington Hall! We'll have an excellent array of independent comics in stock from publishers who weren't able to make the trek to Seattle, like Koyama Press, Uncivilized Books, PictureBox, and more.

Plus, throughout the day, Manager/Curator Larry Reid will be joined by special guests who got their start in small press: our own Ellen Forney, who self-published her title I Was Seven in '75 with a Xeric Grant, and Bruce Pavitt, co-founder of Sub Pop Records, which started as a zine back in 1979. Stop by the table for a chat -- all three of them have tons of experience and knowledge about self-publishing that they'd love to share with you!

•  All throughout the day, Short Run will be screening animation, including pieces from our own Dash Shaw and Lilli Carré, alongside Reel Grrls, SEAT (Seattle Experimental Animation Team), and dozens of other animators from around the country. Screenings take place on the balcony level of Washington Hall.

•  Many Fantagraphics artists will be exhibiting with tables of their own, including legends like Peter Bagge [A-4], Jim Woodring [C-13], Jim Blanchard [A-3], and Michael Dowers [as Brownfield Press, B-6], alongside up-and-coming artists like Josh Simmons [D-18], Nate Neal [coming all the way from Brooklyn! C-15], Julia Gfrörer [E-24], and Mome veterans Andrice Arp [F-27] and T Edward Bak [J-45]. PHEW!

• Fantagraphics staffers Jason T Miles [C-11] and Jen Vaughn [landing] will be exhibiting with comics of their own!

• And then there's the panels (all taking place on the first floor)!

---> 12:20 PM: Women in Comics // Our own Megan Kelso will lead and moderate a panel focused on the females with panelists Geneviève Castrée, Gabrielle Gamboa, Roberta Gregory, Julia Gfrörer, and Virginia Paine. I have to say, Megan has been doing some amazing planning and research for this panel, and it is not to be missed!

---> 2:40 PM : The World of Comics // A survey of comics around the globe with Jason T Miles, Pat Moriarity, David Lasky, and Leonard Rifas. (Inspired by our own Kim Thompson.)

But, wait! There's more... The day before Short Run Small Press Fest, Friday, November 29th, they'll be hosting Read/Write, a day of panels, workshops, and more at the Vera Project, including... 

---> 2:00 PM : DIY Publishing in the Digital Age Panel // With our Associate Editor Eric Reynolds, plus Bruce Rutledge (Chin Music Press), self-publisher Alec Longstreth, and moderator Zack Soto (Study Group).

•  And for full-disclosure, I, Janice, your friendly Flogger, should mention I'm one of the organizers this year, so there's that...!

For the complete Short Run Seattle schedule, including Read/Write on Friday, November 29th at the Vera Project [ Warren & Republican Ave North ], and Short Run Small Press Fest on Saturday, November 30th at Washington Hall [ 153 14th Avenue ], visit shortrun.org! Both events are FREE and open to the public! See you there!

Short Run 'Marathon' Opens November 9 at Fantagraphics Bookstore
Written by Larry Reid | Filed under Short RunShannon WheelerPeter BaggeNate NealJim BlanchardFantagraphics Bookstoreeventsart shows 31 Oct 2013 12:06 PM

Marathon postcard image

The Pacific Northwest has become the center of a growing movement of handcrafted small press publishing. “Short Run Small Press Fest” is one of the country’s leading gatherings of self-publishing communities. Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery curator Larry Reid has selected two dozen artists to represent this movement in “Marathon: A Short Run Art Show.” This show of original drawings, prints and publications opens on Saturday, November 9 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. The exhibition continues through December 11, 2013.

The Marathon title implies the epic effort often required to create a career in comix. To illustrate this concept, Reid has assembled an eclectic mix of emerging artists and accomplished cartoonists with self-publishing backgrounds. The show also acknowledges a new paradigm which affords artists the opportunity to fashion viable professions without the benefit of a major publisher. Fantagraphics Bookstore was an early advocate of the revival of small press media, which was once endangered by the ubiquity of the Internet.

Local artists Eroyn Franklin and Kelly Froh, joined by Fantagraphics Bookstore staffer Janice Headley, will present an expanded version of the annual “Short Run Small Press Fest” on Saturday, November 30 at Washington Hall in Seattle. “Marathon: A Short Run Art Show” provides a preview of festival exhibitors, including Robyn Jordan, Noel Franklin, Mita Mahato, Joe Garber, Fiona Avocado, Scott Travis, Peter Bagge, Tom Neely, Bettina McEntyre, Skill Shot, Max Badger, TBASA, Jim Blanchard, Aron Nels Steinke, Elaine Lin, and more.

The opening reception on Saturday, November 9 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM features musical entertainment by Tummy. This event coincides with the festive Georgetown Art Attack featuring challenging visual and performing arts presentations throughout the historic art community. Fantagraphics Bookstore is located at 1201 S. Vale Street (at Airport Way S.), minutes south of downtown Seattle. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM. Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone 206.658.0110.

They aren't going to save you but its better than handing someone a Slim Jim you bent in the shape of a heart while filling up your car at the gas station. Or is it?

MAD Day in NYC
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Will ElderPeter KuperNoah Van SciverNate NealJack DavisHarvey KurtzmanDrew FriedmanAl JaffeeAl Feldstein 13 Nov 2012 4:02 PM

Neuman

It was a mad, Mad afternoon when Robin McConnell, MK Reed and I dropped into the Mad Office. Assistant Art Director and comics consumer Ryan Flanders reluctantly fell for my charms and agreed to a tour even though their deadline loomed large a few days later (hey, we don't want to impede a dying medium, right?). Even the guards had a cute shtick that took 5 minutes of my life and a humorless person would have left. Luckily, that's not me.

Mad Jen

Ryan started off the tour by showing us his first office at MAD, it's near the door, pretty cold but looks a bit similar to mine at Fantagraphics.

Ryan Flanders's first MAD office

The MADtropolitan Museum of Art showed off some of the best and brightest of recent hilarious paintings, complete in their gold gilded plastic frames melted down from the plastic noses and vintage glasses frames of the cancelled shows The Real Housewives of Jersey and Williamsburg.

MADropolitan Museum of Art

The props display case was amazing from Gutrot which I've definitely drank and Spy vs Spy toilet paper. Photoshop ain't got nothing on printed, folded and glued cardboard.

Fake stuff at MAD

Rotgut

Everyone else in the office was just as charming, waiting for the day their piles of tchotchkies bury them. Art Director (and a cartoonist himself) Sam Viviano showed off some amazing original artwork and Sculpey sculptures created for photo-shoots. Check out that DREW FRIEDMAN drawing over Ryan's shoulder.

Sam Viviano's office

The Wall of Artists is tagged anytime a Mad-contributing creator stops by the office. Nate Neal (who created Sanctuary) was on the board. Many of our creators worked at or for MAD like Al Feldstein, Jack Davis, Will Elder, Harvey Kurtzman and Noah Van Sciver to name a few.

Wall of Artists

One of my favorite props was an actual headstone used as a support structure in the office created for a back cover thanks to a Feldstein/Gaines joke.

Jen rests

Ryan's new office turned out to be a nightmare, so well organized I made a mental note to courier him a spring-loaded box of trash upon my return home.

Ryan Flanders office

Flanders' board

Like any good office the mail room is actually where all the good stuff is located (at Fantagraphics, our fridge is in there). Snuggled among packing materials and one hell of a cutting board are sexy flat files full of Al Jaffee, Tom Bunk — EVEN a Tom Fowler, internet friend.

Flat files at MAD

LOOK at this Al Jaffee fold-in drawing. My dream is to have one printed SOMEDAY, SOMEHOW instead of lamely attaching my fold-in to the magazine and tricking my friends into thinking it was actually printed in the magazine.

Al Jaffee Fold in

Jewish Batman, you slay me. That utility belt must have some tasty kosher deserts near the back. (by Al Jaffee)What if Batman was Jewish

One beautiful Jack Davis drawing that was REJECTED from the magazine (or Davis decided to redraw) blew me away. The best part was the tattoo "My Mom Loves Me" is infinitely better than Mother tattoos of the world.

My Mom Loves Me by Jack Davis

In gorgeous ink and the now-illegal duoshade/duotone. Please place your drinks down, Fantagraphics and MAD magazine are not responsible for your spittle shorting out your keyboard.

Jack Davis Knockout!

Despite the slow decline of the magazine industry, MAD magazine has lived on, able to pay cartoonists for their work (wow-za!) and maintain a staff. By raising prices and creating a Mad reading app, they stay current and accessible. MAD's first audience may be a bit gray in the face now as they celebrate their 60th anniversary but continue to wow audiences. As a kid, I didn't have much access to the magazines but my grandmother would buy any books at any yard, church or library sale. Three rooms in their house were lined with built-in-books shelves and in the ‘humor' or comic sections lay the trade paperback editions of MAD (often with the cover ripped off). Ryan was kind enough to explain that most of those were unused comics and many have not been reprinted to this day due to copyright ambiguity. Sounds like something for a legal intern to help them figure out.

MAD magazine

As long as parents send kids care packages at camp, people stay overnight in the hospital and Hollywood makes bottom-feeder television and convoluted movies, MAD will reign supreme. Thanks again to Ryan Flanders for the tour, Robin McConnell for some of the photos (there are MILLIONS more here) and MK Reed for the company.

New York Weekend Photo Round-Up!

Perhaps you couldn't make it to our events in New York this past weekend, or maybe you had such an awesome time, you wanna relive it again through photos.  Well, my friend... this FLOG post is for you.

Here's the man of the weekend, Mr. Jack Davis! (I love this photo; how could I not open with it?)


photo credit: Jeff Wong

Jack had an especially busy weekend, because not only was he a guest-of-honor at the 2011 Brooklyn Comics & Graphics Festival, but he also had an art show at the Scott Eder Gallery, and a talk at The Strand Bookstore! Here he is, in a rare moment of relaxing, with fellow Fantagraphics artist Derek Van Gieson. (Not pictured, but also at the table, Nate Neal, and someone flipping through Jack Davis: Drawing American Pop Culture!)

Speaking of The Strand, the event at this famed NYC bookstore was a huge success! Derek has some more gorgeous black-and-white photos at his blog, and we've got some more pics from Jeff Wong below:

And finally, here's an adorable shot of Drew and Jack, after their panel on Saturday night!

Thank you so much to The Strand Bookstore, the Scott Eder Gallery, and to the mighty organizers of the Brooklyn Comics & Graphics Festival for an amazing weekend!  Thanks to our ass-kicking artists, Josh Simmons, Kim Deitch, Dash Shaw, Jack Davis, Michael Kupperman and Al Columbia for spending time signing at our table. And, as always, thanks to our awesome customers for stopping by our table, and making our first visit to the BCGF a successful one!
