Congrats to Britt Hammerberg!

   Congrats go out to Mpls Conspirator BRITT HAMMERBERG!   First of all, Britt was just named BEST SEQUENTIAL ARTIST of the ARTS IN HARMONY 2011 Juried Art Show (and with title comes a hefty cash prize)!   Second and no less important is the fact that Britt’s webcomic FAMIB turns 10 YEARS OLD this weekend!  This means Britt has been doing a webcomic longer than the internet has existed.  Strong work, Hammerberg!

Minnesota Cartoonists in the Press

There has been a whole lot of coverage of the Minnesota cartooning scene recently… here is a round up.

First of all, the excellent Star Tribune story about the Twin Cities cartooning scene by Tom Horgen from last Sunday’s paper can now be read in its entirety online. Don’t miss the video with Peter Gross and the gallery in the sidebar.

In their ongoing 100 Creatives series at the City Pages, they have now covered Local Hero Kevin Cannon, Zander Cannon, Lars Martinson, DWITT, Adam Turman and Altered Esthetics’ own Kara Hendershot, among many other great local artists.

Twin Cities Public Television recently did a feature on Zak Sally.

The Daily Crosshatch just posted videos of Lars Martinson‘s “How to Self-Publish a Graphic Novel in 8 Hard Steps” presentation from the 2010 Graphic Novel Writing & Illustrating Conference sponsored by the Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis, MN.

The Daily Crosshatch also recently ran an interview with Pete Hodapp the cartoonist responsible for what was probably my favorite comic in the Lutefisk Sushi Volume D box, The Possum and the Pepper Spray. Apparently part 2 of the interview is coming soon.

Tom Kaczynski was recently interviewed at the Comix Claptrap.

This Thursday–Feb 3rd–is the 100th meeting of the Mpls Cell of the International Cartoonist Conspiracy!!!

Actually it’s the 99th meeting.  Shhh!  Don’t tell the local media!

 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
