Artist Talk and CHICAGO ZINE FEST!

This past saturday I did an artist talk about me and my work at Beauty and Brawn Gallery and Think Space.  It wasn’t recorded, but last fall I did a lecture for Laydeez Do Comics-Chicago, and they DID record, and this I forgot about it and then I just remembered!

If you scroll down you can listen to the recording!

BUT FIRST

CHICAGO ZINE FEST IS THE WEEKEND EEEEFFFFF YEAH

Make sure to be there early on Saturday because last year I sold out in TWO HOURS!!!!!

This year I am on the upper floor, but i am RIGHT in front of the elevators, so it’s all good!

8th-Floor

CANT WAIT TO SEE YA’LL

But just in case you can’t make it, I will also have my books and wares the next day, Sunday March 16th, at

Multiples Art Fair 

Which is kind of like Renegade, only specifically for artists who produce “multiples” like prints, books, etc.

Hope you can make it out but if not I’ll probably love you anyway

The Greatest

Holy MOLEY i have just had a whirlwind of press and accolades since my art show opening on February 8th!!!!

First i found out i was featured in a Chicago Tribune article! (starpower!)

Then,  REELChicago posted a video from opening night (though i think i sound like an idiot)

AND THEN! – the last two days I have talked and visited with the arts reader from the ChicagoREADER, which is super super exciting (since people actually read that one!)  If you are around the Chicago area, you can pick up a copy NEXT THURSDAY (the 27th) or search for it on http://www.chicagoreader.com/

Basically… Im about to blow up ya’ll.

On another awesome note – I am still working on my most recent comic!  It’s a Wealthy&Diamond diary comic, but it’s on a much larger scale, and with everything that’s been going i’ve only inked one page!  But here is the first pages ‘ rough copy for you to revel over until the other pages are done.

I love all of you!

Shadow Boxes

This year, the Chicago Reader decided to switch up their usual “photo issue” to …COMICS!  So this is my submission, fresh off the drawing table:

ShadowBoxes_RFoss

I’d love to hear thoughts and critiques of this piece – specifically, I am curious to hear what people see when they look at this comic:  Who is that invisible person?  Who is the girl and what is she thinking?

I have my own story I am telling in this piece, but I wanted it to be relatable to a broad variety of people.  Everyone has their own story – what’s yours?

ALSO – you will be able to view the original at my upcoming art show!!!!
