St. Paul Cartoonist Conspiracy Jam – 2nd Anniversary! This Thursday, October 15th, 2009!

The St. Paul Cartoonist Conspiracy will turn two years old today! Originally three brave men, Bud Burgy, Kevin McCarthy, and Daniel Olson, started this tiny offshoot cell back in 2007 as an alternate jam night in the bustling metropolis of the Twin Cities. Since then, it has grown by leaps and bounds. This is a destination for St. Paulites, Minneapolitans, and suburbanites alike!

Come join the us and celebrate tonight!

Just bring some drawing utensils, an idea for the jam, and a few bucks to get a tasty beverage — the baristas really do appreciate that.

The jam will start promptly at 6:30 and run until…whenever.

The meetings are open to anyone who wants to draw with us, and the results are posted here sooner rather than later.

To join us come to:
Cosmic’s Coffee Shoppe
189 Snelling Ave N.
St. Paul, MN 55104
(Northwest corner of Snelling and Selby)

More not than often we head on over to grab a brew at:
O’Gara’s Bar and Grill
164 Snelling Ave N
St. Paul, MN 55104
(Southeast corner of Snelling and Selby)

Bus info here.

Hope to see you there!

Announcing….LOCAL COMICS WEEK!

textDecember 27th – January 2nd will be….LOCAL COMICS WEEK!
Diamond Distribution, the biggest (and pretty much only) comics distributor will be taking a long winter’s nap that week and will not be shipping new comics…leaving comic fans without their weekly fix.
But not to worry, because as with a lot of comics, there are heroes to count on!  Those heroes,  ladies and gentlemen, are  US!
We will create and sell our own comics and provide the city with comic books and save the planet once and for all! 
Here’s the plan:  Big Brain Comics has generously allowed the Conspiracy to take over their New Release racks for the week.  Customers who are looking for their weekly comics will be introduced to the world of  local comics.

Here’s the info: If you want to participate, have 20 copies of a mini comic printed by DECEMBER 3RD.  You can bring your comics to the jam that month or you can arrange to have them mailed to me by contacting me at  bob (at) uptowngirlcomic.com. The mini comic should have a cover price of $3.   Consignment details are still being worked out. 

The comics will be delivered to Big Brain on December 28th
and will go on sale the next day on December 30th (new comic day!)
The comics will be on sale until January 5th.   Any money made will be able to be picked up January’s jam on the 7th. 
 
If you want to participate, please contact me by NOVEMBER 15th. 

Thanks to Kevin Cannon for creating the logo for the event!

FALLCON IS THIS WEEKEND!!! Volunteer to represent the Conspiracy at Fallcon!

Fallcon is this weekend!

Click the above image to go to the Fallcon website.

We have some volunteers for Fallcon this year, but we could definitely use some more. We’re planning to have a “Conspiracy lounge” again this year. Ideally, we would like a minimum of two people to be in the lounge at all times during the convention. It is a pretty casual and fun affair, and a good opportunity to get to know some of your fellow cartoonists better. We also need some comfy couches and chairs, if you can bring them. If you can volunteer or provide weekend furnishings for the lounge, please contact me at:

Thanks much!
