Kitten Breath A-Go-Go!

KITTEN 0246

Big shout out to ANN-MARIE of the Aberdeen, UK-based KITTEN BREATH ZINE and KITTEN BREATH DISTRO for the brilliant package full-o-fun we got this weekend! Missy contributed a little comic to the latest issue of Kitten Breath and we were thrilled to finally see it in person.

There was a little drawstring bag filled with cute stickers, colorful foam bits, cutouts, confetti, candy, and all sorts of cat-related ephemera. It was all UNABASHEDLY TWEE and we loved it:

Uncommon Copies Art Exhibition

IMG_0466
My art will be part of an upcoming exhibition called Uncommon Copies and is held at the Church of Templehead, a gallery and art space in Chicago. This event brings together all kinds of artists, zine makers, writers, and DIY enthusiasts together for a celebration for one of my favorite mediums, xerox.

Here is a peek at my xeroxed art, three pieces from a zine of mine called Elfs. This was drawn in the late 1990’s and made form doodles, vintage wrapping paper that my mom gave me, and a glue stick.

The opening for Uncommon Copies is on March 14. If you are in the Chicago area, please check it out. It sounds like a great exhibit, with artists from all over!

Women & Girls In Georgia

WAGG 9999

To say that the last three or four weeks have been busy for us would be an understatement. We’ve been so busy that I neglected to post about Missy participating in the WOMEN & GIRLS IN GEORGIA CONFERENCE (WAGG) that took place at the UNIVERSITY OF GEORGIA three weeks ago. Missy, along with our friend, Katy, headed up a seminar and zine-making demo at the conference. It was truly an honor to be asked to speak at WAGG. Before the conference, Missy and Katy worked to put together a Power Point-style presentation:

Missy, who always wishes she was still in school, was stoked to be back in a university setting:

Everyone in the class participated in making a zine – it was a group effort. We each wrote a page about our “early experiences with feminism” and we decorated our pages with drawings and/or magazine clippings. After we turned in our pages, Missy gathered them up and ran to a copy machine to make copies. While Missy was making copies, Katy ran a little Q & A session as the class perused a selection of zines that Katy and Missy brought to the seminar. When Missy got back, they stapled the pages together and every one got their very own copy of the zine!
