A free afternoon at the cinema, what more could you ask for! RSVP here.

    This Weekend: SPX!

    Above, the cover(s) of a new mini-comic I’m in the midst of inking, which I’ll have on hand at the Small Press Expo in Bethesda, MD (or North Bethesda, more accurately). Haven’t been to SPX in a few years, and haven’t exhibited in even longer. It’s my favorite small press comics show, so I’m excited to be back behind a table there again. I’ll have that new mini-comic, my book The Black Well, some prints, and maybe a few other odds and ends. Sharing my table will be one Mr. Fred Chao — come on by, why don’t you?

    Special note to cartoonists in attendance who are interested in creating a Kickstarter project: I’d love to talk to you about it! I work at Kickstarter as a Project Specialist (fancy title, right?), and would be happy to answer any questions you might have, offer advice if you’d like it, or just generally chat about comics and Kickstarter (and whatever else, really). So please do come by table F3 and say hello…

    Heading to SPX?! Find Jamie Tanner and chat Kickstarter! He’ll be at table F3.

  4. Check out an excerpt from Style Wars, the film that helped define the graffiti culture. Last year the documentary was saved thanks to 572 backers who helped restore the footage and bring outtakes out of the archives. We couldn’t be more excited to screen part of the legendary film at the Kickstarter Film Fest this Saturday in Brooklyn! RSVP here to see Style Wars is all about!

  5. If you’re in NYC on June 6th and thinking about possibly running a Kickstarter project, come to the second Kickstarter Open House! Kickstarter staff and successful project creators will be around to hang out and chat about whatever project ideas you have, big or small. Our first event in February was a blast, so we’d be thrilled to see you in June!
