From my blog (which also has a bunch of close-ups):
I wrestled my way into participating in the lovely Jordan Rosenberg’s Ghost PokeZine project! It’s being funded (successfully!) via Kickstarter, and I couldn’t be happier to be involved. The Pokemon I got was Sableye - which I have to say I had never heard of, but…

A few thoughts on the library & also the NYC Society of Illustrators over at my blog.

“When we free ourselves, we are freed into the dimension in which art is an obligation. The design process must become conscious, global, integrated - the entire human domain should be enclosed and included in a coherent plan driven by human values and a thirst for transformational beauty.”

For my post-TCAF thoughts, (and also some pictures and a list of the badass comics I bought) check out my blog! Here’s a preview:
I was tied up in TCAF (Toronto Comic Arts Festival) festivities this past weekend, and it was absolutely fantastic. I had a lot of fun, both as an exhibitor and an attendee, and going to the afterparties and meeting neat people. I’ve never really been an ‘afterparty1!1!1′ type of person but I’m really glad I went out.
Anywho, in the picture above you can see one of my lovely interns lying on the TCAF exhibitor map. (Sometimes my interns are more in-the-way than helpful, sadly, but alas.) I’m so happy with the direction the festival is headed – the 2nd floor was filled with a bunch of amazing stuff this year. Back in 2010 when I was in the small press room…

From my blog:
I’ll be in the Small Press Room (curated by the lovely folks at Wowee Zonk) at TCAF (the Toronto Comic Arts Festival) all weekend! Thankfully this year we appear to be on the same floor as everyone else, and won’t be forgotten about (hopefully)! Very much looking forward to it. If you’re in Toronto, do come say hi, will ya? It’s at the Toronto Reference Library at Yonge & Bloor. On Saturday the hours are 9-5, and on Sunday 11-5.

From my blog:
I know I’ve talked about this a bunch, but I have a piece in Light Grey Art Lab‘s Pokemon Battle Royale exhibition! It’s in Minneapolis, MN, USA – so if you’re down there why not go take a gander? The show is up until May 11, and you can check LGAL‘s website for a list of times the work is available for viewing. Go check it out! I also have my Weepinbell print up for sale in their shop – so if you like droopy Pokemon who look a bit out of it, my picture might just suit your fancy. The print is only available through them until May 11!

Some ramblings on my blog about my trip to NYC, which was basically a zine-filled extravaganza!
A snippet from the middle of the post:
There’s a weirdness about these two spaces in their really slim definition of what a ‘zine’ is – for me, zines have always been more about reclaiming methods of production and creating DIY objects (regardless of their fanciness/artiness/not-artiness). Sure, the content can concern radical politics, but I don’t think it has to. Barnard didn’t find my work suitable for their collection, on those grounds – which is A-OK by me, it’s all good (and be warned, fellow artsy types) – but being more familiar with the Toronto zine scene with its emphasis and acceptance on art zines and DIY comics, I was totally not expecting to get the cold shoulder in NYC at these places. Oh well! It was still fun to visit, and I’m glad I did!

Fourth Wave: Part One
“If feminism is the radical idea that women are people, then trans-feminism is the radical idea that women come in different containers”
I mentioned in my links yesterday a somewhat disposable exchange that occurred on the Ms. Magazine blog regarding the “conundrum” of how trans-feminism is to fit into the future of feminism. While in and of itself, this exchange isn’t particularly interesting, and is rather just yet another iteration of the increasingly tired (in a “oh come on are we really still asking this? This should not be any kind of deal” kind of way) validation of feminism’s cis-supremacist fringe, I find that there’s one little beautiful and highly radical question hiding in there beneath the vapidity. One that is likely just an accident on the original author’s part but that nonetheless coalesces several threads of thought that have been tangled up in my brain these past couple months. Coalesces into something rather important to ask:
Perhaps the future of feminism is trans-feminism?
[Keep reading, click on the link above.]
“if feminism is the radical idea that women are people, then trans-feminism is the radical idea that women come in different containers”
this is a something i thought a lot about. i truly do think that we are currently living through a fourth wave, as the feminist movement is going through some foundational changes in terms of our understanding of gender, woman, and shared experiences. it’s intersectionality on a whole new level.
