This Sat. in Seattle: Kim Deitch & Friends of the Nib
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Kim DeitchJim WoodringFantagraphics Bookstoreevents 5 Mar 2008 7:38 AM

  

You're all invited to join a stellar group of accomplished cartoonists in the "Friends of the Nib Comics Jam" at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery this Saturday, March 8 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. Celebrated cartoonist and visual artist Jim Woodring will preside over the activities, which will include a guest appearance by New York underground comix legend Kim Deitch. Aspiring cartoonists of all ages are encouraged to participate in this lively session, which will include a rare screening of Deitch's 1960 short film "Dial M for Monster."

Friends of the Nib is an informal cartoonists' solon formed by Woodring that meets weekly at Café Racer in Seattle's Ravenna neighborhood. Acclaimed artists such as Ellen Forney, David Lasky and animator Bruce Bickford regularly attend to mentor emerging cartoonists and network with their peers. Kim Deitch is among America's most prominent and influential alternative cartoonists. The astonishingly sophisticated animated and live-action film short "Dial M for Monster" he created as a teenager with his friend Tony Eastman has become legendary among Deitch fans; it was never released, and has only been shown a handful of times in small venues. Prior to the 7:30 screening, he will introduce the film with a brief media presentation.

Admission is free to the public of all ages. Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale St. in Seattle's Georgetown industrial arts district. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone 206.658.0110. The "Comics Jam" coincides with the monthly "Georgetown Second Saturday Art Attack." Over 30 galleries, studios, nightclubs, boutiques, and cafes participate in this colorful showcase of Georgetown's creative diversity.  See you then.

David Boring Wears Chocolate
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Daniel Clowes 4 Mar 2008 9:29 AM

Our pal Rebecca Rosen from Drawn & Quarterly sent us these pictures from a mall in Bizarro World (a.k.a. Hong Kong). If there are any more Flog readers out there in Hong Kong, send more pictures! Rebecca took all she could: "Sorry I didn't get a better shot of the panel display....That last kind of blurry shot? That's when the security guard began loudly reprimanding me in Cantonese for illegally taking pictures in a mall."

Alexander Theroux interview at Bookslut
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Alexander Theroux 3 Mar 2008 10:20 AM

Here's an excellent interview with Alexander Theroux from Bookslut. "Every publisher is waiting for another Stephen King. They go to lunch and wait. Agents are lazy. Most editors couldn't tell a good novel from a pile of chimney flashing."
Flog Giveaway: Jason Lettering!
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under Jasonart 3 Mar 2008 10:19 AM

While we were putting together his upcoming release, Pocket Full of Rain, Jason sent over this small swatch of lettering-- the title of a single page story in the book.

He has given his blessing to give away this tiny treasure to the first Flog reader to post in the comments board. I'm not going to get clever and ask you to answer any questions, just be a fan. Leave a contact email address and I'll write you.

Approx. 2.75" x 4" on what I'm sure is non-archival copy paper. Touched by Kim Thompson and myself only. Insurance value: $400,000.00.
