I’m pleased to announce the launch of TWIG, the new free monthly comic I’m putting together as part of the Trees & Hills Comics Group. Every month a new sheet of paper covered with local comics will appear, as if by magic, around Vermont, New Hampshire, and western Massachusetts – and of course the internet. It is excitingly decentralized – anyone can download it from the website to print and distribute! Check out the first issue at http://www.treesandhills.org/2008/04/twig-1/ .
In other free comics news, I will have a strip in the Free Comic Book Day edition of Candy Or Medicine. I’ll be visiting shops that day to socialize and dole out copies of TWIG and Candy Or Medicine. I also have a strip in Candy Or Medicine #3, due out April 15.
This coming Tuesday, April 8, from 6-8pm I will be at the opening reception for “Accounts of Events: Narrative Works by Connecticut Valley Artists”, an exhibition of comics-related art at Greenfield Community College’s Downtown Center, 270 Main St, Greenfield, MA. Come on by, say hi, see the art (it’s good stuff)! Have some Moxie & Ding-Dongs (someone has to)!
â€œAccounts of Eventsâ€ is a group show, exhibiting at Greenfield Community College Downtown Center in April and May. Participants (other than me) include Greenfield illustrator Sarah Adam, Recordereditorial cartoonist E. J. Barnes, humorous glass painter Helena Dooley, Looking for a Face Like Mine author Prof. William H. Foster III, ’60s underground cartoonist Gary Hallgren, Dr. Birdley writer and artist Nevin Katz, Nickelodeon Magazine illustrator Mark Martin, Pop Culture’s Kids creator Mark Stacy, and autobiographical comix artist Anne Thalheimer.
GCC Downtown Center is at 270 Main Street, Greenfield. The exhibit will run from 1 April through 29 May, with an artists’ reception on Tuesday, 8 April, 6 p.m. — 8 p.m. The Downtown Center is open to the public Monday through Thursday 8 a.m.– 9 p.m. and Friday 8 a.m. — 4 p.m.
