bit of a tribute to a small comic book program ive been taking for the past 2 weeks. it was really fun and in the end i got to put like 4 little works into an anthology with abour 18 other people. shoutout to the providence comics consortium! and the two cool dudes walker and mimi who ran the whole show. it was a great class.
Three cheers for this - one of the new Providence Comics Consortium books! The people of Tiverton, Rhode Island invented these characters, which I got to draw for the centerfold. Luckily the top drawing printed beautifully on Walker’s Riso, but I also did the bottom drawing as a less dense back-up version that I still really like.
WHO ARE THEY?!
George Washington apple
Refrigerator that can throw blobs
Pet monkey in a dress that is really a mushroom
Ogre whose weakness is chocolate
UFO made of carrots
Tiverton! We put your copies in the mail today! Go pick up your copies later this week!
I just (almost) finished writing the (very short) science fiction / body horror story that I’ll be reading tomorrow, Saturday, night at AS220! here’s Jacque Bidon who is the master offset printer at the AS220 community printshop — this story event will be a fund-raiser for some much-needed, long-awaited improvements to the offset press. I also saw a picture of some homemade pretzels that will be at the event… they looked good… !?
Saturday, June 21st, 115 Empire St. $10. 7pm, over by 9pm so you can go to Pride events or keep hanging out at AS220 (where there will be no cover, I believe!) or go to a show in olneyville. see ya there!
