The Harold library exhibit is live! (plus some)

We haven’t posted an official update in a while, but we’ve been busy as ever.

So — a few updates:

Most importantly! We have two Illustrated Press stories on exhibit at the Harold Washington Library in the South Loop from March – July 2013. The exhibit features “Home in One Place” (which can be found in our book) and “Kathy Has a Question” (a project we did for WBEZ’s Curious City).

We’re really excited about this one, in part because it’shows how journalism and art can co-exist in a creative space. We’ve spent more than a year pairing traditional shoe-leather reporting with sequential art, so we’re feeling pretty honored that the good people at The Harold (our favorite library) think we’re worth an exhibit in the main hall.

The exhibit features both stories in 32″ x 40″ framed panels on both sides of the main hall. You will not be able to miss it…

  • In addition to the exhibit, we’ll be hosting two gallery discussions at the library. The dates are set for April 17th and June 26th, both at 6 p.m. — We’d love to see you all there.
  • We’d also like to shout-out In These Times magazine. Their February 2013 issue (on sale now) features an excerpted/revamped version of “Home in One Place.” Check ’em out!
  • In other news, we’ll have table with our work on display at the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo (CAKE fest!) July 15-16. We’ll be hanging out with our friends from The Cartoon Picayune and Symbolia 11a-6p at the Center on Halsted, 3556 N. Halsted. The event is FREE and open to the public.
  • We’ll also be presenting a panel at the 2013 Michigan State University Comics Forum on March 2 with Erin Polgreen (Symbolia) and Josh Neufeld.
  • AND if you haven’t already, please give Darryl’s interview in The Rumpus a read-through: mysteries are revealed, questions are answered, Rumpus ramblings are achieved.
  • Lastly, you can still get a copy of our first book of comics journalism stories, either online or in stores

Aside from all those things, we should have a major update within the next few weeks, along with the introduction of two new long-term project we’ve had in mind for months now.

New Stories! Huzzah.
