Vote to Determine the Topic of the 2013 Comic Art Show at AE

Here are the proposed possible topics for the 2013 Comic Art show to be held at Altered Esthetics gallery in Minneapolis (based on verbal discussions and the online discussion here). (AE is hosting our Lutefisk Sushi Volume E show this November)

The option with the most votes will be the basis of next year’s project.

Please only vote if you intend to participate in the project. Note that you do NOT have to be a resident of Minnesota to participate in the 2013 project.

Here are the proposed topics:

Comic Music Project: cartoons about or inspired by music, packaged with record or cd

Poster Art Project: posters of huge cartoon canvasses

Public Domain Anthology: cartoon reinterpretations of public domain works (like Grimm fairy tales for example)

Moving Parts Show: Comics with a moving element (like pop-up mechanisms, for example)

Punchline: Anthology of comics about death

Mystery Box: Mysterious limited edition box full of mysterious comics and art.

Voting ends sometime on August 10th. Sometime shortly after that we will be taking nominations and voting on a featured artist for the show.

Lutefisk Sushi Podcast episode 24: Shloggs

In the twenty-fourth episode host DANNO KLONOWSKI speaks with Matt “SHLOGGS” Risnes . Despite the fact this podcast is the audio sampling of MN Cartoonists, SHLOGGS is in fact NOT a cartoonist, rather Shloggs is one of Danno’s oldest friends on earth.  In addition to that honor, Shloggs is an avid film aficionado, as well as a blogger and frequent and sought after film podcast guest who, rather than filling the internet with nerd rage, fills his blog posts and podcast appearances with eloquent logic and critical thinking about the medium of filmmaking.  That in mind, Danno and Shloggs spend this episode breaking down and discussing their favorite (and least favorite) film adaptations of comic books.  Shloggs provides the insight into the filmmaking and Danno discusses the ways in which being either faithful or disrespectful of the source material can make or break a film (depending on the film, obviously).

SPOILER ALERTS!!! If you have not seen the recent DARK KNIGHT RISES or AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (and good for you on that one), we discuss key plot points. Other films discussed include: SCOTT PILGRIM vs THE WORLD, BATMAN ’89, The HELLBOY series, the recent Marvel films including AVENGERS, THE CROW, and several more.

The Lutefisk Sushi Podcast is sponsored by the INTERNATIONAL CARTOONIST CONSPIRACY, the ALTERED ESTHETICS GALLERY, and the NORDEAST COMICS SUMMIT.  The Lutefisk Sushi podcast is a STAPLEGENIUS.COM(cast) production.

Tomorrow! Mpls Jam and Presentation at Big Time Attic!

I am full aware that everyone is familiar with the scheduled jam at Diamond’s, this is a reminder that before the jam, there will be an (unofficial) Nordeast Comics Summit given by my friend and web guru, Kristiana Hansen!  She will be discussing her RyuZine program which helps to bring comics and other images to different formats!  Anyone who is interested or is already working within the webcomics field should come around and find out more!

The doors open at 6:00 pm!  Come in early to grab a good seat!  A HUGE thank you to Big Time Attic and Kevin and Zander Cannon for use of their facilities!
