City Pages has agreed to work with Minneapolis Indie Xpo to produce its 2010 Comix Issue!
Please refer to the information on the MIX website for specifics and write to me (Sarah Morean : firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.Â LINK
The deadline for submissions is Monday, August 9, 2010.Â Please refer to the site’s FAQ and GUIDELINES sections for clarification on some changes to this year’s Comix Issue.Â We hope that by tweaking a few key things, we can have a truly excellent print and online edition this year that highlights much of the area’s top cartooning talent.Â I hope you’ll agree.Â More importantly, I hope you’ll make the time to participate!
This year’s theme: declaration of independence.Â Write about whatever makes you feel independent!
You have 107 days to go.Â Can’t wait to see what you all come up with!
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.
The deadline for little funny is on the 20th… so you have less than a week to get yours in. Which is probably not a big deal, as it will probably only take you one evening of fun to get an issue together.
little funny, again, is a series of micro-comic booklets authored by anyone who wants to do one that will be sold out of a vending machine at the BIG FUNNY opening. It is easy, fun and inexpensive to participate… and all entries will be accepted. You can read all of the details about the project here.
All participants in little funny will be listed on the BIG FUNNY website, and we’ll eventually have scans of all the covers posted there as well.
Some people have been confused by the instructions… I tried to clarify them some more in the text. Additionally, here is a photo of two copies of little funny #8 by James Powell (the front of one and the back of the other).

The BIG FUNNY deadline just passed at midnight, smelling of sweat, ink, and old newsprint! Kevin had a busy day of getting submissions in… we now have 50 of them! The paper is going to be nothing short of spectacular!
And we still want yours!
Not done yet? You’re not alone… there are a number of people whose submissions are really close but not completed. And some, well… maybe not so close, but we’ll give them the benefit of the doubt. You too. We’ll give you one more week! That will be it, though, so don’t miss it!
Please note that submission does NOT guarantee inclusion. You will want to make sure to read the complete project specs and info here.
Please contact us if you are taking advantage of the extension… you can email me at webmaster (at) cartoonistconspiracy.com.
