Oh, No - Jams!

The jams Anne Thalheimer & I did at the Trees & Hills And Friends release event last Wednesday are now in the Comics section for all to view. If you weren't there, you missed out on fun! And a chance to share germs.

Hourly Comics Day is this Thursday 2/1

This Thursday February 1 is Hourly Comics Day, when John Campbell encourages all cartoonists to join him in creating hourly comics. The challenge: before each hour of the day passes, make a strip chronicling something about that hour. For more info and examples by John, follow the link above. For one that I did, click here.

We would like to post people's strips, so if you live in VT, NH or western MA and do one, please send scans or a link to colintedford at gmail dot com. Also, we encourage people to have get-togethers so their comics will "cross over". Have fun!

Vermont newspaper looking to hire cartoonist

Our good friend Jade Harmon informed us this week that the Brattleboro Commons, a fiesty monthly newspaper in the southern Vermont town is looking to hire an editorial cartoonist.

Yes, we said hire. And no, we don't know how much.

The ideal candidate would draw editorial cartoonists based on local issues and some additional art to go along with news stories.

Saturday Gathering & More

Don't forget tomorrow is the Trees & Hills get-together at co-founder Dan Barlow's apartment in Brattleboro, VT. In addition to the usual drawing, chatting & snacking, we'll be discussing plans for future events (release parties, conventions, anthologies, etc.). For directions or other info, email barlowdaniel at gmail dot com.

In other news, I just posted an eccentric and untested productivity tip at Make Comics Forever.

And though not directly relevant to us, I can't resist linking to this item about the new Archie graphic novel.

Tim Hulsizer wants your original art

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Keene, N.H. cartoonist Tim Hulsizer is one of the last remaining participants of the Daily Grind competition, which challenges artists to draw a comic daily every day during the traditional Monday to Friday work week.

To celebrate the two-year anniversary of this grueling dare, Tim wants to raise a little money for charity that buys goats and cows for impoverished villagers in other countries.

And while we can't support Tim's habits of eating fire crackers and wearing thong underwear, we can appreciate his heart in this situation.

So, Tim is looking for original comic art from other folks to auction off on Ebay. Entries are due by Feb 15. There is more information here at his LiveJournal.
