Pegacorn Press will be tabling CAB this weekend, with old time pal, Mike Taylor. Come by the table and say WUZ UP?! There's a ton of events surrounding CAB, which you can find more about at their site: http://comicartsbrooklyn.tumblr.com/
I've made another online store via Storenvy, which will eventually replace my Big Cartel shop. As always, the Etsy shop is still up and running, so take your pick on how you want to get your Pegacorn releases.
New publications are in the works and most likely, they'll be released by November 9th for the Comic Arts Brooklyn Festival. Pegacorn Press is definitely tabling and I'll post more info on the event in the coming months!
YO! Pegacorn Press will be tabling CAKE
on June 15th and 16th in Chicago, land of the lovely comic freakers.
There's some new publications to be seen, including titles from
Leipzig, Germany's Anna Haifisch, longtime friend Mike Taylor and a new artist book that I've been working on. When I get back from Chicago, everything will be available online.
AND... I'm was honored to be ask to moderate a panel during CAKE, with an all star line up, which includes Phoebe Gloeckner!!!
Details of what the panel is all about is listed below. If you're in
Chicago, definitely make a point to check out CAKE and stop by the table...
Sunday, June 16th
3:30 – 4:30pm
with Phoebe Gloeckner, Julia Gfrörer, and Heather Benjamin Moderated by Caroline Paquita Sponsored by Comix Revolution
Beyond the shock tactics of portraying “inappropriate” subject matter in
comics, we find the medium is exquisitely suited for grappling with
explicit content, unchained from the trappings of taboo. Intimate
Anxiety focuses on three artists’ ferocious visions of sex and death,
made all the more visceral through gorgeous and painstaking details.
Special Guest Phoebe Gloeckner sets the standard for work that probes these realms. From her experimental memoir, Diary of a Teenage Girl, to her iconic illustrations for RE/Search
to her current work dealing with the ongoing femicide in Cuidad,
Juárez, Gloeckner continues to confront difficult realities with
groundbreaking graphic integrity. Julia Gfrörer’s art
vibrates off of the page while crafting oblique erotic worlds laced with
terror. Through sparse text and a perfect sense of visual timing,
Gfrörer’s comics, such as Too Dark to See, Flesh and Bone and Black Is the Color
bring language to the unspeakable. Joining them will be Special Guest
Heather Benjamin, whose obsessively rendered drawings aim straight for
the jugular vein. Author of the cult art zine Sad Sex and
contributor to the prolific output of Collective Stench, Benjamin’s art
delves headfirst into complicated scenarios that are emotionally fraught
and sexually feral. Moderated by Caroline Paquita, author of Womanimalistic and founder of Pegacorn Press, Intimate Anxiety is a conversation about the power and truth that lies within impropriety.
Pegacorn Press will be tabling this Sunday at the Brooklyn Zine Fest and then afterwards, I'll be performing afterwards in the BRAIN FRAME show.
"Sparkle Puss, the Vajazzling Cat," will be making a real life debut
and will be giving DIY directions on how to vajazzle on the cheap. Not
to be missed!
I'll let these great fliers dish out all the relevant information...
