BMore wants to showcase the artistic process of a comic from the inception of an idea to the finished product. Normally art shows are a bunch of finished products on the walls, but this art show will have everything! Scripts, sketches, concept drawings, original artwork, finished books - anything we can frame and hang on the wall that was part of making a comic.
I will be showcasing two Everything's Fine pages plus one additional comic page (I'm not sure which page yet)
From the website:
Join us for the final PAPER CUTS / LIVE conversation, curated by artist Christopher Kardambikis and featuring comic book artists: Adam Griffiths, Kendra and Kat, Athena Naylor, and Anna Sellheim. The conversation and reading will be recorded and archived as a PAPER CUTS podcast. This is part of an ongoing series of conversations related to Bookshelves: PAPER CUTS / LIVE which is on view through July 5.
I will have a bunch of my zines and anthologies for sale.
I will be tabling at this event.
From the website about why NYC Femist Zinefest exists:
We’d like to showcase the work of artists and zinesters who identify as feminists, and whose politics are reflected in their work.
And also, zines have a special place in our hearts.
There’s just something about the immediacy and expressiveness of a little printed booklet, smudged with printer’s ink or photocopy errors. It’s like a small, pocket-sized emissary of ideas, one who will eagerly come with you on a long train or bus ride, and share its hidden tales.
Plus, zines are the thriving medium of folks who exist beyond the margins, creating spaces & forums for ideas that are erased from traditional media.We like that space – alive, full of energy and community. We want to create more spaces that feel that way.
not too high, not too low is a group exhibition that invites comic book artists and cartoonists to make work for a gallery setting. Curator Amy Lokoff has challenged the 6 participating artists to subvert the traditional elements of their genre: work that is narrative, two dimensional, handheld, and considered commercial or trite by the mainstream fine art world. This show reconsiders their artistic practice as one that requires technical and conceptual skill and explores the line between high and low culture.
I will be exhibiting my series, "Moments". The pieces themselves will be for sale as well as some of my zines being available in the gallery gift shop.
exhibition: March 9 - April 13, 2018
opening reception: March 9, 6 - 9 pm

From the Website:
This curated event in NMWA’s Great Hall brings together small presses, artists, and more to sell their independently published (largely paper-based) works—more than forty artists will be selling creations from zines to books, from comics to prints, and plenty in between.
Organized by the DC Art Book Fair Collective: Malaka Gharib of The Runcible Spoon zine and The Little Filipino Coloring Book, Alison Baitz of On Flora zine, illustrator LA Johnson of The Intentional, and illustrator Elizabeth Graeber of A Field Guide For Redheads.
Not required. Part of November’s Free Community Day, admission to the fair is free, as well as NMWA’s collection and exhibition galleries.

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 reading Wasted at this event.
Here is a description from the website:
DC Zinefest would like to invite all souls -- alive and dead -- to join us at Black Cat for a delightfully frightening evening! Local storytellers and writers will share their spookiest tales, and the Pun Ghost will return to be our friendly emcee.
$8 - ticket sales benefit the 8th annual DC Zinefest, coming summer 2018.
*This is an accessible event. Room in back, no stairs.
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."

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.
From SPX's website: Sophia Foster-Dimino, Kris Mukai, and Anna Sellheim all create comics that take their everyday life experiences and transmute them into stories that tell you the truth. Whether it’s an autobio comic, a journal comic, or even a fantastical work of fiction, each story encompasses its creator’s version of narrative truth. Moderated by Rob Clough of High-Low.
