Trees & Hills (and many cartoonists from our area) will be tabling at MeCAF in Portland, ME this coming Sunday May 19. Come see us by the seaside!
Since 2009, MeCAF has been Portland’s annual showcase for comic arts bringing creators to the public. Over 100 comic writers and artists will be on hand for this event — everyone from mini comics publishers to seasoned professionals. There will be comic book writers and artists, gag cartoonists, newspaper cartoonists, web comics creators and more. The guests will have their own work available for sale. Some people will be doing sketches and selling original artwork. Others will have t-shirts, buttons and posters. All of them have one thing in common… a love of comics.
Special guests this year include Jeff Smith, Brian Wood, and Raina Telgemeier. Trees & Hills and the Boston Comics Roundtable (and numerous artists from both groups’ areas) will be there. To the best of our knowledge, the T&H-area exhibitors are: Center for Cartoon Studies, Colin Tedford, Corey Hodgdon, Dani Jones, Daniel Barlow, How I Made the World (Liz Plourde & Randy Michaels), Jennifer Omand, Marek Bennett, Matt Talbot, Matt Young, Megan Baehr, Mike Lynch, and Trees & Hills.
Be a part of the Rochester, NH Free Comic Book Day Festival Saturday May 4th, brought to you by The Rochester Main Street Program and Jetpack Comics! The city of Rochester is unique in that Free Comic Book Day is promoted as a city-wide festival. Last year the Rochester Free Comic Book Day Festival had an estimated attendance exceeding 5000 people, representing over 900 families. Register for a vendor table for $25 or just drop by for the hoopla.
A Vermont peace activist group would like to produce a comic about peace activism and the military-industrial complex; join them and Trees & Hills cofounders Daniel Barlow and Colin Tedford to discuss what shape the project might take. If you’d like to participate in the discussion, email firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment to find out where we’re meeting. Some snacks will be provided. If you’re interested but can’t attend, email or comment anyway with your thoughts and we’ll keep you in the loop.
