From their website:

The Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo was established in 2010 to create a showcase space for artists and writers in the greater-Boston area working in the field of comics. The event is produced by the Boston Comic Arts Foundation and hosted by Lesley University College of Art and Design. Unlike traditional comics shows, which emphasize commerce and memorabilia, MICE puts a focus on the art of making comics. We connect local creators with local audience. We also run a number of workshops for children and adults, as well as panel discussions on the craft and relevance of the comics form. We’ll be featuring several special guest creators, along with an expanded line-up of programming.

I will be tabling for my second time at DC Zinefest. 

From the website: "The DC Zinefest is an independent event organized to provide a space for zine makers, self-published artists and writers to share their work with each other and the Washington D.C. community. We hope to support a community that is based in do-it-yourself practices and ethics through providing the opportunity to expo, workshop, and hang out with zines. If we don’t do it ourselves, no one will do it for us."

Cartooning: Sense, Nonsense, Applications Exhibit

Cartooning: Sense, Nonsense, Applications Exhibit

  • Clark University Higgins Lounge (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

From the Center For Cartoon Studies' website:

The Center for Cartoon Studies (CCS) cofounder James Sturm has curated an exhibit for Clark Universities Higgins School for Humanities as part of their “What’s so funny?” series of public lectures, community conversation and exhibits on humor. Featuring comics by Scott Bateman, Cara Bean, Marek Bennett, Liza Donnelly, Eroyn Franklin, Luke Howard ’13, Kazimir Lee Iskander ’16, Liniers (CCS Fellow), J.D. Lunt ’16, Josh Neufeld, Rebecca Roher ’15, Jess Ruliffson, Anna Sellheim ’16, Kelly L. Swann ’16, Whit Taylor, Tillie Walden ’16, Maris Wicks, and CCS instructor Sophie Yanow.

Comics have the unique ability to convey complex information quickly and effectively while engaging people of all ages, nationalities, and socio-economic backgrounds. Comics are an intimate medium allowing a single creator to inform, advocate, and document. As our modes of communication became increasingly visual, I’m interested in the growing number of ways that cartoonists are engaging with the world outside of traditional publishing venues. The work gathered here suggests many of the paths that cartoonists will travel.
