13.Jul.2011 Hey Kids, Comix!
I’ve not done one of these for a bit, been busy with summer cleaning and moving, and thought I might as well let Eric Dyck’s Mon Qui Towne have centre stage for a little bit.
I’d like to add a couple more strips like his to the site as syndicated features this summer, just thinking on who to approach right now. if you have a suggestion let me know in the comments here.
At carte blanche, where I serve as Graphic Fiction Editor, we are now open to submissions for the Fall Issue, #14!
The Issue will include a special feature on Obsessions. From your vintage stapler collection to spying on your exes, we want to know about your passions, compulsions, and preoccupations. The Theme is optional but it will win you brownie points if you can fit it. Submission deadline is September 15th, 2011. My birthday! So send me your comics, consider them presents for me as editor!
Contributors receive a $45 honorarium per published piece on carte-blanche.org, and since I began editing I’ve published a set of the runner-up comics here on Sequential too. Check out the submission guidelines for more information. Please indicate in your cover letter if your your work is themed for the feature on obsessions. REMINDER: All submissions from Quebec residents that are selected for publication in carte blanche are eligible for the 3Macs carte blanche Prize ($300) sponsored by MacDougall, MacDougall, & MacTier Inc.
Ok, on to the comics.
Been wasting time on the new Google+, this strip from xkcd sums up a lot of people’s take on it, though really it’s shaking out to be something a bit different, a hybrid of twitter tumbler and blogger with facebook like networking. Pretty cool, lot of cartoonists there posting their work. A few of this weeks comics come from things I’ve seen posted there.
