Clarification/ Buffalo News Article

So there was a write up today in the Buffalo News about the Infringement Festival. I am mentioned, which is great, but I did want to let people know that some of the information listed is a bit misleading. Just thought I should clarify: Visitors will not be able to bring home the comics I make at the Comics by the Cover event on the 28th. I am planning on assembling them into a book/ free online PDF so I will need to hang on to them. I will have the books ready by Sunday August 2nd for the Broadway market event and I will also post a link here on my blog to the PDF.

Comics by the Cover

So in a couple weeks I will be taking part in the Buffalo Infringement Festival. I have three events lined up as follows:

Saturday July 24th, 6pm at the Western New York Book Arts Collaborative (WNYBAC)- This a group show and I will have some work hanging on some comics on display for folks to read.

Wednesday July 28th, 1-5 pm at Crane Library - Comics By the Cover is an interactive comic drawing extravaganza. You bring me the book that you just checked out from the library and I will draw a comic about it based only on the cover or the first few pages. I've never done anything quite like this before and am probably fairly unprepared for it, so hilarity will most likely ensue. All comics I make during this time will be assembled into a mini-comic, which will be available for sale the following weekend. I'll also post it online as a free pdf.

Sunday August 1st, 12 pm, Broadway Market- The market will be open especially for the infringement festival and artists will be around selling there wares and doing live paintings and what have you. Not exactly clear on what this will be like as I have never been to the Broadway market, but I will have copies of the Comics by the Cover collection and hopefully a few other things as well.
