Traditional Marriage

Since the issue's been out for a while now, I'm throwing my latest comic from Secret Prison #4 up onto the internet for your reading pleasure. It's my little tryst through art history and anthropology. Click to see the full size image.

The other weekend was Punk Rock Flea Market here in Philly, and it was lots of fun! I tabled with Claire Folkman, Dre Time, and David Jablow and I debuted a series of little itty bitty mini-comics with alternate endings all about monsters! I sold out of all but one book, so I will need to make more for future tabling occasions.

When would that be, you ask? Well, plans have it that you can find me on August 14th at Philly Alt Comic Con, and on September 24th at MICE in Boston. How fun! There will be tons of new comics and, as I prepare to stay stocked on these for the rest of the year, stickers to commemorate your survival of the Rapture.

Newspaper Comics

What a grossly long hiatus. Day jobs are not conducive for comic-making! But that doesn't stop me from getting a submission done for Secret Prison! Here's my piece printed in issue #3, which is full of some pretty fantastic stuff. Check out the link to find out where you can grab some copies!

Also! Be sure you follow the Philly Comix Jam blog, where you'll see lots of pages drawn by very talented and drunk comickers under "Our Pages". I've got tons of panels in the mix there. You can see who drew what if you check us out on Facebook and browse through the photo tags! You'll also get all kinds of news about the exciting happenings of Philly-area comic stuff.

Happy New Year to everybody! Lots of exciting stuff should be happening this year.

Have You Ever Seen The Movie...

I don't even know what I can say about this guy. The next morning he'd found me on facebook somehow, and I was greeted with the charming profile picture of his finger up his nose and his mouth wide open with his tongue hanging out. Hawt.

Don't forget that The Art of Secret Prison will be on display at Brave New Worlds this First Friday! Details at the link. I may also print up one of these bar drawing to hang up at the show. Which one do you think deserves the honor?

Heart Problem (from Secret Prison #2!)

Hey gang, pick up your copy of Secret Prison #2 yet? It's seriously killer. I'm so impressed by everybody's comics. Next issue's gonna have some stiff competition!

We're also having a show this coming First Friday in old city! Original artwork from Secret Prison #1 and #2 will be on display at Brave New Worlds (45 N. 2nd Street), Sept. 3rd 6-10pm. Fancy! I'll have both my comics up and you'll be able to pick up the new issue there. Come check it out!

In the meantime, my comic from #2:

Eh?! Native Speaker?!

Remember the "So I Walked Into A Bar..." series? Yeah I forgot about it too. Well, here comes the next edition, from the cramped little bar in my very quiet neighborhood when I lived in Tokyo. This geography teacher was so interested in talking to us about America and American things as he sloshed around for a while. And I apparently made his night after he made an off-the-cuff comment about not liking rap because he can't understand what they're saying.

Japan is the best place to meet friendly, talkative drunks. More of these to come from that side of the world!

The Functionality of Flaws

Hey hey superfriends, I want to thank everybody who came out for the Philly Alt Comic Con and supported local cartoonists! It was a total blast, and we had the best seats in the house (right in front of the only window fan ;)). I'm really looking forward to next year!

And in the meantime, I'll be sharing a table with Claire Folkman and Dre Time at B.Y.O.T.Y. II (Bring Your Own Table Yo!) at Little Berlin on September 26. I am planning a few more books for that event, so check it out! Should be sweet.

The Secret Prison #2 release party was also really great, and the tabloid itself is so incredibly good. Make sure you check out comic shops around the city for a copy, every page is fantastic! I'll be posting my comic from it soon.

At PACC I got to debut my hand-bound books of my "The Functionality of Flaws" series of drawings. For your viewing pleasure I have uploaded them all on my website! Go enjoy my resourceful little ladies. Feel free to email me if you'd like a copy (kellymakesart (at) gmail.com).

MoCCA Trip continues! HULK OUT

I'm long past due on wrapping up the comics about my trip up to MoCCA months ago. I've passed over any events at MoCCA for the time being (or any escapades that occurred after Drink & Draw) and jumped ahead to my friend Claire and my subway journey back to Penn Station.

I had some x-treme bruises after this, but the horror and embarrassment of NOT making it through those doors was too much for my latent superhuman strength to not emerge.

Aug 8 - Philly Alt Comic Con!! @ The Rotunda! 12:00-6:00pm, 40th & Walnut

The Ladies Down The Hall

One of the biggest perks/distractions from my old internship was the non-stop entertainment from the extremely loud, unbarred, unaware ladies down the hall. Really nice though! Also, the irony isn't lost on me that the day after I finished this comic, I spent most of the day sneezing uncontrollably.

Secret Prison #2 has also been totally funded (and then some!) and is heading out to the printers at the end of the week!! Keep an eye out for it at comic shops around the city, or come to the official debut at the Philly Alt Comic Con, where I'll be sharing a table, on August 7! There's also a BBQ for PACC at 6pm the day before where you can meet and hang out with lots of Secret Prisoners (including ME!) at Locust Moon Comics at 40th & Walnut. COOL.
