Will Elder documentarians need your help
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Will Eldergood deeds 16 Sep 2010 11:06 AM

Filmmaker Gary VandenBergh is looking to raise funds via Kickstarter to complete Chicken Fat, his in-progress documentary on his late father-in-law Will Elder. Gary was a great help to us when we were putting together our book Will Elder: The Mad Playboy of Art, and we've been helping with the documentary by supplying digital images. We can vouch for Gary as, in Gary Groth's words, "a generally great guy."

They've already got a lot of great interviews in the can, including Art Spiegelman, Bill Griffith, Jay Lynch, Al Jaffee, Arnold Roth, Drew Friedman, the late Harvey Kurtzman, Bill Gaines and Will Elder himself, and many more; the additional funds will enable them to travel to California & England for more interviews (Hugh Hefner, Joe Dante, Daniel Clowes, William Stout, Terry Gilliam) and to complete the editing.

Pledge gifts include DVDs of the finished film, copies of our Elder books, and more, all the way up to a Producer credit in the film. See the Kickstarter page for much more info on the project.

Help send T. Edward Bak to Alaska to research his Mome serial

Wild Man page - T. Edward Bak

I made brief mention of this in yesterday's "Things to see" but it deserves better notice than that. Congratulations to Mome contributor T. Edward Bak on being awarded a residency in Alaska (our second artist headed up there this year, hot on the heels of Jim Woodring)! He needs your help in covering his expenses and is selling original pages (I've seen them and they're beautiful) to raise funds. Here's his plea in his own words:

"So, last week, I was awarded this artist residency in Talkeetna, Alaska, through Seattle's La Familia gallery. I'm planning on being up there through the month of July, and am currently raising funds through the sale of original drawings from the work to help cover supplies, travel expenses, and a field drawing expedition into the Bering Sea and the Aleutian Islands (Dutch Harbor, specifically). I have Paypal set up and details listed on my blog http://antizerogravity.blogspot.com. My deadline for raising $ is July 1. Thanks for your support!"

Two worthy donations
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under T Edward Bakgood deeds 24 Mar 2010 4:55 PM

Two of Portland's most venerable comics-related institutions need your help:

IPRC

First, the Independent Publishing Resource Center is having a Spring Membership Drive. They have various levels of membership — the Zine of the Month program sounds pretty awesome. Our pals at Sparkplug have posted an eloquent plea from IPRC member and Mome artist T. Edward Bak — please go check it out and then sign on up!

Also, Jason Levian of the paradisical Floating World Comics is raising funds via Kickstarter for printing costs of the next issue of Diamond Comics, the awesome broadsheet comics anthology he publishes and distributes for free. Find out a whole lot more here, and pledge away!
