Lift Off Show

Thursday, January 7th, 2010

Too bad I don’t live in California (or at least anywhere near it…). I just read about a neat exhibit opening up at the Nucleus Art Gallery called Lift Off: The Art of Airships. It features tons of amazing artists including one of my favorite comic book artists, Kazu Kibuishi of Flight. Full details of the event are here! If you live nearby, you should check it out! The opening reception is January 9th starting at 7pm.

Browsing through Nucleus’s other events… Man they have a lot of great stuff. I wish I could have seen the Princess and the Frog or Zombie exhibits! I’ll definitely keep my eye on the art they feature.

New York Comicker Meetup

Wednesday, January 13th, 2010

Hey all!  Bree, Foley and myself (otherwise known as the three wise NERDs) have been doing a New York Comicker meetup every now and then for the past half a year. Are you in New York? Do you read/write/draw indie comics or webcomics? Do you just love drunken flow comics? If so, you should come join us at the 12th Street Ale House on the Lower East Side this Thursday at 7pm. The Ale House is located on 12th Street and 2nd Avenue, and is a great venue because they have huge tables, not terribly loud music, good drink specials, and you can bring in food from anywhere nearby!

Mainly we sit around, talk shop, draw and drink! There are several comic pages passed around usually and we talk about news and upcoming cons and network with new people. Some others who have participated include Darwin Carmichael is Going to Hell, Tapir Tooth, and Gary of Fleen. Come join us!

Comicker Meetup Flow Comics now online!

Friday, January 15th, 2010

Yesterday’s NY Comicker meet up was a blast! A bunch of regulars showed up which is always rgeat, and we also met some new people. Many comics were created, and I decided to start collecting these comics into a Flickr pool so we can see all the different styles and sessions as we have more meetings. See the whole set HERE! I also uploaded some older stuff from MoCCA and NY Comicon to the set.

Yesterday’s art and comics were created by some of the following people:
Bree, Miriam, Gary, Ross, Ray, Jamie, Claire, Caldwell, Yuko & Ananth, and myself. Although I couldn’t really tell you who did what except for my own panels, breeruption panels, and Ray’s quirky stuff.
