Make a book and we'll sell it at the Sculpture Center!!

desertislandbrooklyn:

Open call for work: looking for handmade, one of a kind artists’ books for a show I’m organizing at the Sculpture Center. ALL work submitted will be accepted if it meets the above criteria (no multiples, no editions accepted!).  We’ll have a pop-up shop at the Sculpture Center in conjunction with their next big exhibition from October - January. EVERYONE is welcome to make a book. You don’t have to be an artist! It can be comics, collage books, studio scraps, crayon drawings, photos, stickers, etc etc. Whatever you can think of. **Drop off in person or via mail at Desert Island by September 20th. In addition to the book, you must include your name, phone number, sale price of book (artist keeps 100%), and email address. If mailing, write SCULPTURE CENTER somewhere on the envelope!! Do not ask me any questions about this. Just make a book!

Copies of Happiness #4 may be available at Safari this weekend with Antoine Cossé at the Breakdown Press table or at the Good Press Gallery table. Unless the shipments of books didn’t arrive in time, which they probably didn’t. Ask anyway!

tonylamothe said: What is the best way to submit art and/or music?

Email happinesscomix (at) gmail (dot) com introducing yourself and your work (a link to a website or portfolio works best). Please note that since the 4th issue just came out I do not plan to start putting together the next issue for at least another year…

However I do try to post open calls for submissions to other comic/art publications on here when I stumble upon them!

Also…

We don’t have a table at SPX this year but am wondering if it would be worth it to just show up and walk around and give out/trade/sell happiness #4 from a tote bag? Maybe that’s not allowed though, I don’t know.

Not sure that there would even be any demand for the new issue there, what with the sheer size of the event and number of exhibitors, but it would be nice for the new issue to be available somewhere at the event just in case?

WHAT DO YOU THINK, INTERNET????

To anyone who ordered Happiness or anything else from the spithouse storenvy in the last few weeks, please check your spam box for anything from “lvwlvwlvwl” or “happinesscomix” (both gmail addresses).

from the sounds of it, it seems like my messages to customers are going directly into their spam boxes not the main inbox … :P

I have been nominated for an Ignatz Award in Promising New Talent!

Thanks to the jurors for the nomination!

Attendees are the voters. So if you come to SPX next month, September 13 - 14, you can vote! Check out all the other nominees.

For your reading ease, here are the three comics of mine that are part of my nomination:

Jeremiah

Boy Genuis is a combination of two pieces.

Until It Runs Clear is also a combination of pieces.

I’m also going to have a new comic debuting at SPX titled Dear Amanda. More on that soon!

Thanks, I hope to see you at SPX!

Congratulations to Happiness #4 contributor Cathy G Johnson on their ignatz nomination!!!! :D
