Local cartoonist Jeremy Burt has gotten some mention from the local press lately. The Missourian had a front page article on Burt, and a Tribune blog mentioned that they have a story coming up about him as well.
First, thanks to Josh for getting the follow-up post in a timely manner. I was completely wiped after the weekend and was unable to do anything half-way coherent for a while. Big thanks to everyone for making it out this weekend and making this yet another successful event! We would like to post everyone’s stories on the blog so please send us a link when you get a chance!
Also also, if you get a chance be sure to let Lisa Bartlett at Artlandish know how much we appreciated her letting us use the space this year! Thanks again and hurry up and get those stories in!
In his attempt to woo the new girl, Opey ends up making her dislike him even more. On top of that he gets some jail-time. What’s a pre-pubesent, antisocial, nuclear warhead, in a post-apocalyptic world to do? Find out in issue 4 of Opey the Warhead.
Midmococo’s 24 Hour Comics Day event was a huge success this year thanks to the hard work of Scott. I don’t think it could have gone any better and the space at Artlandish was perfect. Thanks to everyone who participated and thanks to Artlandish for providing the space.
Just a quick update: I will be at Artlandish today from 4:30-5:30 getting things set up. If you have tables and chairs to bring or if you just want to help set up and can make it during this time please feel free to stop by. I did not receive any artwork from anyone via email so I am assuming we will not be hanging up any art this year (maybe next time!)
Checking the total tally of artists who have preregistered and it looks like I was off by one: We currently have 15 artists registered for the event. If you do not email me before tonight you CAN still participate in 24 Hour Comics day with us, but we cannot guarantee you a seat at a table, at least for the first part. I think we can squeeze in a couple more people at tables but I won’t be sure until after set up tonight.
Again, please try to be at Artlandish tomorrow by 11:30 at the latest. I will be there at 11:00 for last minute set-up and to get everything ready. It looks like this year will be a good mix of both familiar faces from previous 24 Hour Comics Days as well as some new ones. The event will be open to the public for a portion of the day Saturday and Sunday, so keep that in mind when picking your spot to work.
I hope everyone is as excited as I am about this year’s event! See you all tomorrow!
