Spot On Show

Went to the opening of the Spot On: The Art of Zines and Graphic Novels show in Minneapolis last night, and it is quite spectacular. While it showcases the work of local cartoonists, it also highlights the work of cartoonists from around the world. Being Book Arts, as much of the emphasis is on the presentation of the comics and Zines in the show as it is on the contents of the publications. They had a huge turnout last night, especially considering almost all of the area parking was taken up by Minnesota Twins fans going to the game. If you missed it last night, there is no need to cry since it will be up until June, so you still have plenty of time to catch it. Thanks much to Jeff Rathermel at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts for including so many of us in the show (and thanks to conspirator Chris Coffey for helping Jeff set up the wonderful presentation of all the works).

Speaking to Jeff last night, I also got confirmation that we will be able to use the space at Book Arts for the full 24 hours of 24 Hour Comic Day, which is wonderful. We were wondering a bit what we were going to do with all the elbows in the wee hours of the morning, and this has solved the problem... Book Arts will provide us with an ideal space to work in and have a little space to spead out a bit. At this point we have 20 artists signed on to participate in our Minneapolis 24 Hour Comic event... more information about this will be coming soon. To read more about it now, go here.

Also, I should note that we NEED VOLUNTEERS to help with this event. If you are not participating and can help out, or if you know some people that would be interested in helping out, please let us know.
