my friend Jen

My lady friend Jen need you YOUR help!!

“Cartoonist Jen Vaughn is thrilled to announce her first SXSW InteractiviZINE! From March 12th to March 16th, she will attend the SXSW (South by Southwest) Interactive Festival in Austin, TX and will “cover” the event multimedia-style in her Interactivitizine! SXSW is chock full of panels, events, and of course parties, related to social media, convergence, video games, start-ups and anything Internet. Upon the conclusion of her visit, Jen will post her drawings, notes, photos and other ephemera from the festival on her website for everyone to share the wealth of information gleaned.

Jen is accepting donations of $5 and up towards her SXSW InteractiviZINE experience via her website (http://www.mermaidhostel.com/sxsw-interactivizine-fundraiser/). Anyone who donates will receive a LIMITED EDITION (PRINT) SXSW InteractiviZINE full of panel notes, comics and other special goodies made especially by Jen Vaughn.

Jen creates a weekly webcomic called Mermaid Hostel (http://www.mermaidhostel.com) and her previous works include Menstruation Station: Menarche Aboard!, and Don’t Hate, Menstruate.”

I enjoyed googling Jen, because this is the tenth or so photo:

…And this is what her work looks like. Show the lady some love and get her comic (odds are it’ll be genius)

a LOT of nothing

I realized I haven’t blogged in a while. It’s because both, nothing and tons of things have been going on.

Me and some fellow students have been playing Heroes Quest. It’s like Dungeons and Dragons, but for 8-year-olds. Thus, it’s perfect for comic book nerds. I mention this because we’re drawing or exploits into comics. I’ll post these soon-ish.

Also, I started an exquisite corpse of sorts. I drew five pages of a zombie comic and then gave it to someone else, and they’ll pass it on and so on. Hopefully, it will be done by the end of the semester. I’ll post something along those lines too.

So, basically, I’m blogging to say I have nothing to blog about. Art wise at least. I did, however go to a rocking Pieces party last weekend. It was a dress up party:

I look Hobbity

from Left to Right: Meff!, The Law, Pat Barrett, Me, and Jon Fine

Oh, and I found all the pages to my 24 hour comic, so I’ll probably make some sort of book out of that. I’ll most likely send it to my book club patrons. So sign up for that to glimpse ideas made up after 9 hours of straight comic booking. The craziest ideas come into your brain at 4 am, like sharkodactyls, and squizzards!
