I’m trying to flush some cartoonists out of hiding in the Wisconsin woods to get some jams going in the future.

Rain Taxi is launching a new Lit Art Magazine and wants YOU!

 

Okay so recently Rain Taxi decided to launch a literary journal and is including COMICS! The deal is that on Aug 25th at the Cedar the event will launch with art making and local bands, and all the content for the issue will be made between noon and midnight, which is old hat for you comic jammers. They asked me to be the comics editor and I thought of you guys immediately. Who better to do this than 24 hour comics day veterans?

The deal is though, that Rain Taxi is crowd funding the project in the style of Kickstarter. And the funding seems to be creeping so it is going to need all the help it can get to become a reality.

The main reason that I am campaigning so much for this project among many other equally worthy projects is that I think it is a VERY IMPORTANT step in Minneapolis art/print scene that Rain Taxi from the get go decided to give COMICS an equal billing along with the more familiar short stories, poetry and non fiction. I think if this project makes it it will be another step towards comics being seen as an integral part of such anthologies and not an afterthought or oddity.

So that all said, if this sounds like something you’d want to participate in or help support here is where you do it. (Also read more about the details)

Also if your work is selected this is gonna be a really nice book on the resume 😉

Minneapolis Jam: May 2012


NORDEAST COMICS SUMMIT
Summary: Digital cartoonist Gordon McAlpin gave us a great tour of the mystery that is Adobe Illustrator, showing off some tricks that even the Illustrator veterans in the audience had never seen before. If you want to see Gordon’s comics in action, check out his excellent webcomic Multiplex, or better yet purchase the book!

Coming up next!:
JUNE 7: Jon Sloan, “A Brief History of Comics” – An historical look at the medium we all love so well.
UPDATE: Currently all future slots are closed as the Nordeast Comics Summit goes into indefinite hibernation.
