January 7000 BC Meeting

7000 BC · independent comics from new mexico

The January 7000 BC meeting will be held Saturday, January 23 in the Community Room at the Santa Fe Library Main Branch, 1:30–4:00. After the meeting, we’ll move on to dinner. We’ll be making all sorts of plans for this year’s activities and welcome everyone interested in creating and self-publishing comics.

The library is in downtown Santa Fe and there’s limited, paid (but cheap) parking in the back, street and lot parking around, and possibly the lot across Washington Street at the First Interstate Building will be open. The library is on a stop for the Santa Fe Pick-Up and the meeting’s timed for those taking the train from Albuquerque.

Please send an email with any questions.

You gotta do this. I’m not kidding.

[Square foot art]

If you are a Minnesota artist, you have to do this.

Every ten years, the Minneapolis Institute of Art allows anyone to hang work in their gallery. The only requirements: Be a Minnesotan. The piece of art has to measure one cubic foot or less. Could be a cool page. A panel you like. An animation cel. A small sculpture. Anything.

(In the fine print it says something about not allowing living things, bugs, plants, liquids or hazardous materials — and some more stuff. Read the rules. But there’s not much more to it than one cubic foot.)

From the Web site: WHO QUALIFIES: Anyone living in Minnesota who considers him- or herself an artist. Limit one (1) artwork per artist.

The show is called “Foot In The Door 4.” And it’s a madhouse. When all the pieces are displayed it’s almost impossible to look at. Many walls crammed with one-foot square things. But still — there you are, in the same building as Rembrandt and Van Gogh and all those other famous dead guys.

You gotta do this.

Deadline: Thursday, Feb. 4 through Sunday, Feb. 7.

Happy New Years 2010 to Everyone!

Here is a blast from the past. These were group drawings done in 2008 and just scanned now. One person penciling and (mostly) one person inking.

MPLS JAM is this Thursday, JAN 7th!

Come draw some jam comics before Jupiter blows up and burns us all to death!

The Minneapolis Cartoonist Conspiracy meets at 6:30 until 10:00 the first Thursday of every month at Diamond’s Coffee Shoppe in Northeast.

Generally, we draw collaborative “jam” comics, socialize and drink caffeinated beverages. Afterwords, we often have uncaffeinated beverages somewhere else.

The meetings are open to anyone who wants to draw with us, and the results are posted here sooner or later (and sometimes even printed).

Diamond’s Coffee Shoppe
1618 Central Avenue Northeast
Minneapolis, Minnesota

Bus info here.

Please spend some money at Diamond’s while you’re there, even if it is just a cuppa coffee… they are excellent hosts, and we wanna stay welcome there.

Big Time Attic

Big Time Attic hosts our monthly jam meetings at Diamond’s… they will be supplying us with a big old plate of pastries or something. Thanks fellas!
