So I’m in the Philly Zine Fest, a city where they seem to be having a little bit of drama today. So why not visit it’s online Zine Festival. I’m participating by them putting a link to this site. And from here you can click on the link below to buy a bunch of my crap zines. And here we are trying to make things better. Oh well.
I’ve had the greatest honour to draw pictures for Katie Haegele’s latest zine about Christmas. We didn’t quite get it together to print it before Christmas, but the stories are lovely and sad and I think they can be read at any time of the year.
Christmas, time to get your melancholy on.
I find that there’s a lot of controversy surrounding the right time to take down one’s Christmas tree, including the idea that there is a right time. I see people’s frizzled trees lying on the curb as late as February, which gives me the willies. I have inherited my mother’s fussy, snobbish belief that the only acceptable time to take down the tree is on the Epiphany, the 12th day of Christmas. I can’t believe I care about this, but I do.
So you can buy this hand coloured print and more this Sunday at the Magic, Pixels, Bubbles event this Sunday the 15th of May 2016. The Valve Bar in the Agincourt Hotel from 871 George Street Broadway, Sydney – 5pm.
Here’s some more information from the website.
A geeky variety night spectacular featuring geek music, magic, comedy, indie comic art, zines, board games and a bubble machine! PLUS, a very special CD launch for Meri Amber’s 90s themed album Retro Sherbet. Come in cosplay for a free gift at the door 😉
Featuring geek pop musician Meri Amber, comedian Trish Koutrodimos and magician Liam Power, the show will be MC’d by PatCat, the crazy inventor man who speaks at tech conferences and created the tech blog Dev Diner. On top of which, there’ll also be a gallery of art from some of the best indie comic artists in Sydney and zines from some of the best Sydney zinesters.
Get into some board games, food and drinks whilst being entertained from every wonderfully geeky angle. Be there and be square.
P.S. If you’ve got a favourite board game feel free to bring it along!
