Alright, some updates! Above are pictured the brand new Easel Ain’t Easy zines which will be available for sale this weekend at the Portland Zine Symposium! If you remember, Zech and I designed the poster for that event a while back, and it’s been a lot of fun watching it pop up all over Portland.
Jen will be tabling with me, and she’ll be making buttons right before your very eyes! We’ll also have some other goodies, so if you’re in town make sure to check it out! Also, our table is right next to our buddy Luke of Selfish Steam, which means double the comics fun for your money. Speaking of money, how much does it cost to get in to the Zine Symposium? Nothing! This event is free, and all weekend long! Saturday and Sunday from 10 – 5 at Refuge (116 SE Yamhill). See you there, right?
Okay, next update… Picket Line! Today is the last day to pre-order for the special discounted price of $14.95. After today the book will be sold for its cover price of $19.95. But that’s not all – I just spoke with my printer who said the books will be finished today and should be shipped to me early next week! That means that those of you who pre-order will definitely receive your books first.
Also, I am working hard to set up my Wisconsin “book tour” of sorts. I posted about the Madison show yesterday, and I’ll have more information about the Green Bay and Milwaukee events next week!
Friday, September 2 – Madison, Wisconsin @ Washington Hotel Coffee Room (with Recreation Station, Kitty Versus Wolf, and Fishboy)
Friday, September 9 – Milwaukee, Wisconsin @ Champagne Studios
Saturday, September 10 – Green Bay, Wisconsin @ Kavarna (with Holly & the Nice Lions)
I’m still working out the details for the big Portland release party, but it’s looking like it will be later in September, once I return from the Midwest. Also, it’s gonna be awesome.
Okay, final update for now, I did an interview with Generate Magazine, which you can read here. Okay! Happy weekend!
