This week’s Vox Magazine features a story about the local zine Bodytalk. Bodytalk is a free quarterly e-zine in PDF format that was started by MU student Joseph Beeman in October of 2009. Four issues of the zine have been published to date, dealing with many body issues that people face. The zine features submissions from many contributors outside Columbia, including cartoonist Jen Vaughn of the webcomic Mermaid Hostel.
This summer the Columbia Art League is hosting Young Artists’ Summer Art Camps, and one of the camps is a Creative Cartooning course. The camp is June 21st to 25th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Here’s the class description from the website:
Campers get creative with cartooning. They invent their own comically cute or creepy character or superhero, and refine sketches into full color illustrations that pack a punch. They add text to tell tales or let daring drawings stand alone.
