The Saint Paul Cartoonist Conspiracy Jam has been CANCELLED!

Normally on the third Thursdays of each month, we have a jam at Cahoots Coffee, but NOT this month.  We are going to the jam at the Minneapolis Arts Institute November 17th instead.  You can go and draw at Cahoots on Thursday if you want to, but don’t expect any of us to be there.

MIX is Happening!!! (November 5-6)

Holy Cow! MIX, the Minneapolis Indy Expo, is happening!

There are going to be a zillion great cartoonists there, and the programming looks wonderful. You won’t want to miss the parties (and gallery shows) either!

Hard to believe an event like this could be free to the public, but it is, you lucky dog. Enormous kudos and gratitude to the brilliant and fashionable Sarah Morean on putting this amazing event together. If you miss it, I assure you that you will regret it until your dying day.

TOPIC: Creativity–Why Do It?!

MODERATOR: Maxeem

DATE: Thursday, Nov 3, 2011

TIME: 6 – 6:30 pm (right before the Cartoonist Conspiracy Jam)
LOCATION: 1618 Central Ave NE, Ste. 216, Nordeast MPLS

Maxeem will discuss his theory that the measure of creativity in comics can be
translated as ‘personal effort in properly communicated context’ and will try to
answer:

“If everything’s already been done, what is creativity?”

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

Afterwards, please join us to draw some jam comics, socialize and drink caffeinated beverages. Afterwards, 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.
