UP! Fair Workshop
-DIY Screenprinting Techniques with Cricket Press-

Saturday, November 20 ยท 1:00pm - 2:00pm

The Carnegie Center for Literacy & Learning
251 West Second Street
Lexington, KY

One of the characteristics of many “boutique” comics is their unique, hand-printed covers - many of which are printed by the comics creators themselves. Screen printing is one of the most basic forms of printmaking that can be done at home with relatively few materials. Learn the basics of screen printing and how to give a finished look to your comic. A guide for beginners and basic materials list will be provided to all attendees. While you’re there try the process yourself and walk away with your own hand-pulled print!

This event is one of many free workshops being held as part of the upcoming UP! Fair: A Celebration of Sequential Art and the Independent Publisher.

My Morning Jacket - It Still Moves

Monday, October 25th, 2010

We’ve been fielding a lot of requests the past few days about the My Morning Jacket - It Still Moves poster.

We’ve put the word out with their management to see who or where we can direct people to in case there are any more of these available, and am still waiting on a response. We’ll put the word out on our website, our blog, and on Twitter if anything changes or of they release any remaining posters.

Thanks again for all the interest!

UP! Fair

Monday, October 11th, 2010

It’s called Up! Fair and it’s a free, all-day event celebrating the independent creator with hands-on workshops (make your own mini comic, learn how to screen-print) , panel discussions (the hows of independent publishing, using today’s media for marketing, how to be a dynamic storyteller), and professional development courses (adobe programs, digital coloring). The event is to encourage and educate today’s authors on their medium, art, and options. The first floor will be full of tabling authors & comic artists selling their books and talking with the public. A reception is scheduled during the 19th Gallery Hop where an exhibit of participating artist’s work will be displayed and the organizers will offer a panel discussion on the upcoming event. We keep using the word celebration…because fundamentally that is the feel behind what we’ve organized.

Sara is one of the organizers of the event and will be offering a DIY Screenprinting workshop on Sat. Nov. 20th. More details to come!
