September 7000 BC Meeting

Saturday, September 18 | 1:30 | New York Pizza Department | 2nd and Central | Albuquerque, NM

For September’s 7000 BC meeting, we’ll be getting together and socializing at New York Pizza Department on the northwest corner of 2nd and Central.

We’ll be visiting and catching up, hearing about El Paso Comic Con, and making plans for this year’s 24 Hour Comics Day at Harwood, and maybe even making a jam comic.

Start time is 1:30, which means that anyone coming from Santa Fe can ride the Rail Runner to the meeting.

New members are always welcome. Send an email with any questions.

Cartoonist needed for 6-10 frames for new blog site

Here is an opportunity that I was emailed…

“Dr. Katz meets the Far Side”
Have you ever wondered what your psychiatrist or psychologist is truly thinking when you are divulging all of your secrets and pouring out your heart? [You may not want to know.] Welcome to a new blog where Pandora’s secrets are divulged as mental health professionals express what they really think about their patients.

We need an amazing cartoonist to generate approximately 6-10 single cartoon frames depicting a therapist/psychiatrist/psychologist in session with a patient (who is seated in a chair or laying on the couch a la Freud). Each individual frame
will depict a different patient, and perhaps a different professional. The cartoonist and a member of the blog team will meet to discuss what the professional and the 6-10 patients should approximately “look” like. The frames should have ample room above the heads/chairs/couches to insert thought/speech bubbles for the professional only or both the professional and the patient. The frames will be used over for the same patient – only the text within the speech/thought bubble will change for each blog post.

Given that this will be a blog post, having a digital form of the frames is a must, and the illustration program should be friendly enough for the literary team to enter the text and post to the website with ease.

Interested parties can contact me via my literary pseudonym:
