We're still reeling from the amazing weekend Fantagraphics had at the 2011 Small Press Expo earlier this month! Kim's awesome wife has some photos she's gonna share with us later, but in the meantime, here's some photos, thanks to our friends at the SPX Facebook page!
Presiding over the evening's events is SPX Executive Director, Warren Bernard... also, the editor of our collection Drawing Power: An Exhibition of Cartoon Advertising!
Here's Johnny Ryan, on panel.
Check out even more pics at the SPX Facebook page. And thank you so much to our artists, the organizers of SPX, and everyone who came by our table and bought books!
The fun kicks off at 7:00 PM during "Cousin Corinne's Live Comix Block," MC'ed by Jeff Newelt, and curated by Dean Haspiel.
Time Out New York listed this as one of the 20 Top Book Events this Fall!
Author and artist Michael Kupperman will be part of the "Funny Ha-Ha: Comedy in Comics" panel discussion, alongside Keith Knight, Kate Beaton, and Jennifer Hayden, moderated by Heidi MacDonald of The Beat and Publishers Weekly Comics World.
Get ready for some laughs this Sunday, September 18th at the St. Francis Screening Room [ 180 Remsen Street, Brooklyn Heights ].
And get ready to go insane for Twain! Complete tour dates can be found on our "Events" page.
You guys, this convention sounds amazing. Not only do you get to hobnob with fellow readers, writers, and artists, but they're kicking it off on Friday with a chocolate reception. Why don't all cons do that?
Join Jim on Saturday from 3:00 to 4:30 PM for the panel "Woodring on Woodring," and then on Sunday from 11:00 to 12:00 pm, he'll be on the panel for "Comics Without Captions," a discussion on wordless graphic novels.
Foolscap runs from Friday, September 16th through Sunday, September 18th at the Redmond Marriott Town Center [7401 164th Avenue NE] in Redmond, Washington.
They're all magnificent and ridiculously-reasonably priced, so go get 'em! (The piece above, titled "Libra," sure would make a good birthday gift for this Libra right here, cough cough, hint hint...)
School is back in session! And this Thursday, September 15th, EMP curator/editor Jacob McMurray will "school" you all on the Seattle music scene, as documented in Taking Punk to the Masses: From Nowhere to Nevermind!
Join Jacob at the University Book Store in Seattle at 7:00 PM, as he discusses the "grunge" phenomenon... on the very street where a lot of those unwashed musicians first bumped into each other, perhaps reaching for a Mudhoney 7" at Cellophane Square at the exact same time?
The University Book Store is located at 4326 University Way, N.E. or "The Ave," as it is called 'round these parts. Flannel optional.
I was pretty excited to get to the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery this past Sunday and see the exhibit is now up for Drawing Power: An Exhibition of Cartoon Advertising!
Where the heck did editor Warren Bernard get all this cool stuff?! Well, we can ask him in person when he makes a special Seattle appearance on Saturday, September 24th at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery!
Make plans now to join us from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. Warren will be giving a slideshow presentation and talk.
And as an extra bonus, we'll be joined by artist Tom Neely, currently on tour for his incredible "painted novel," The Wolf. I'll be dishing more about that on the Flog later...!
The Bumbershoot Music & Arts Festival in Seattle has come and gone, and I'm still recovering from the three-day whirlwind of bands, comedians, and shishkaberries, but for those of you who weren't able to attend, I thought I'd share some snaps from the "Bumber By Number" exhibit, which ran during Bumbershoot weekend!
Curators Marlow Harris and Jo David gave vintage paint-by-number kits to local artists, who were encouraged to customize the works and "paint-outside-the-box," as it were. Here's Jim Blanchard's vibrant piece, which looks like it should be hung in a wood-paneled basement, or perhaps screened on the side of a van...
And here's Jim Woodring's morbid take on a winter scene... Damn, I love it.
You can see larger versions of these photos on the Fantagraphics Flickr page, and be sure to check out all our awesome photos and videos while you're there!
Earlier this month, the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery was thrilled to host a preview screening of the alt-comix documentary series "Hooked on Comix 3," spotlighting our very own Dame Darcy and Tony Millionaire!
We were very fortunate to have directors David P. Moore and Audry Mandelbaum in attendance, and you can check out an interview David did with Dan Morrill of ComicsForge.com below (or on YouTube)! It's a great look around at our bookstore & gallery, and there's even a lo-fi preview of Tony's interview at the end:
Come visit the Fantagraphics Bookstore and get hooked on comix yourself! We're open daily from 11:30 to 8:00 PM, and open on Sundays until 5:00 PM. You can find us at 1201 S. Vale Street (at Airport Way S.) in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle.
