I'll be joining Katherine Arnoldi & Russ Fedorka tonight for a panel discussion sponsored by the Pittsburgh Collaborative for Working Class Studies. The event will be in Room 602 in the Cathedral of Learning at the University of Pittsburgh - 6-8PM. We each use comics to address class, feminism and activism in different ways - it will be a lively and enlightening conversation. Plus there will be a display of feminist/working class/queer/alternative comics out front!
I had so much fun presenting comics at the Bonfire Reading Series last month, that I decided to post these three short comics from the event as a slide show here.
I went crazy making a little book for Little Book Fair in Pittsburgh last week - A Field Guide to August. I was nursing a nasty gash on my right elbow, so I only made a few of these. I figured it would be a one shot very limited edition mini, but people seemed to like it, so I decided to make some more.
I always get mopey in August. I don't like hot weather and I feel "Back to School" season looming. This field guide is a personal guide to the plants and insects that mean it's my least favorite month again.
A panel from "Two Kinds of People"
I am so excited to be on a panel with some really talented and devoted small-press cartoonists at the upcoming Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh event - Drawing Power: Comics, Zines and Books in Pittsburgh and Beyond One of the things I love about small press is that I can amble in and out of it with out feeling like an outcast. Events like this remind me why I love comics!
