The Maine Comics Arts Festival (alias MeCAF, alias Forest City Comic Party, alias Ocean Gateway to the West…side…of the Atlantic Ocean….uh…) is taking place this Sunday, May 19th from 10am - 5pm. It’s $5.00 for anyone older than twelve-years old.
I’m really excited to be one of the exhibitors! I’ve never been to MeCAF…I guess I’ve never been to MeANYTHING! I’ll be exhibiting with (and bothering) Kenan Rubenstein, Cara Bean & Jason Viola! We’ll have tons of awesome comics, and friendly demeanors. I’m looking forward to foisting my kid-friendly comics onto many small hands…though Kenan already has all of my comics (ZING!)
Hope to see you there, New England!
Hey y’all, we at CAKE wanted to take a moment and point out all the fantastic comic shops, and book stores that you should be sure to frequent or check out while in Chicago.
Here are our favorite Comic Shops:
Whoa hey I’m gonna be in this thing with comic art (!!!)
If you live in/around Cleveland, stop by Zygote Press in a couple weeks to maybe stop by & look at some art?

Comic friend/burgeoning book publisher Kevin Czap did the art for the postcard & I wanted to draw the people involved.
OKAY SEE YOU THERE
Free Comic Book Day at Quimby’s!

During the Q & A after her panel, when asked who she chose to print her work, artist Ramsey Beyer recommended 1984 Printing as being a “small women owned and operated company (that does) really good work and is affordable,” and John Porcellino seconded that.
It’s kind of a trip to see them walking around this normal looking library and realizing everything is comics
for the kids!
