Rock Ink Roll is a celebration of art and rock music, brought to you by Altered Esthetics, The International Cartoonist Conspiracy, and Big Time Attic. We are producing an anthology of music-themed comics to be released at the Rock Ink Roll gallery show at Altered Esthetics in November 2013. The anthology will be a 8.5 x 8.5â€ full-color book of comics packaged to look like an LP, with cover art by Xeric-winner Brittney Sabo. The gallery exhibition will consist of original comic art and rock posters.
Come on down to the open studio on Saturday, April 27, at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts. Meet, talk, and draw with a few of your fellow cartoonists. Weâ€™ll be at the flexi-space (low tables).
The coffee shop will be open. There are outlets for your devices, plus coffee-shop wi-fi.
There is free parking in the MCBA lot immediately east of the building. If the lot is full, go to the metered street parking on 3rd Street (one block south of Washington Ave.) for 25 cents an hour, or to the higher-priced meters on the other streets.
This is an open studio â€” all are welcome. Feel free to hang, draw, or whatever.

The Minnesota Cartoonist League is group of Minnesota based cartoonists. We meet on the last Tuesday of of every month at O’Gara’s Bar & Grill 164 Snelling Ave N St Paul, MN 55104
In March of 1941, James Freeman Oâ€™Gara opened the doors of this tavern providing a wholesome atmosphere for conversation and camaraderie. Initially food and liquor was served to the local residents who fought World War II at home by manufacturing supplies and munitions for those overseas. You could even get a haircut from Carl Schulz, whose son, Charles gained international fame with the cartoon strip â€œPeanuts.â€ Schulzâ€™s original shop was located in what is now the Shamrock Room.
