I made another book published with Pegacorn Press , this is #2 in the Now & Here Series. Riso guts and screen printed covers. 300 printed. I was sweating a lot and laughing while I printed the covers. I’m going to read from the first book at Ada books on Friday, loudly? 

That’s the magic can of custard powder.

It’s over here

working cover for Other Way, based loosely on an ancient can of Royal Custard Powder,  it&#8217;s an abduction volunteer pamphlet. It&#8217;s Now &amp; Here #2, just barely. Screen printed cover and riso guts on orange and blue paper.
debuting Aug 2nd at Ripe. I&#8217;ll also be doing a reading at Ada books Friday the 1st, (I think) with Blaise Larmee and Alabaster, that&#8217;s all they told me, I don&#8217;t know anything.  Let me &#8220;read&#8221; to you. sure to be hi-larious.

Paper Jam 2 exhibitor #4: Lale Westvind

In just a few short years Lale has become a fixture of the independent comics scene in Brooklyn. From her frequent contributions to publications such as Happiness,  Smoke Signal, and Arthur Magazine. We felt Lale’s wild and grotesque style would gel well with the aesthetic of the Paper Jam and the Silent Barn. Her comics are decidedly rock and roll, as is Lale herself. In fact, she will be performing at the Silent Barn on July 27th as part of the Happiness #4 release party.

They said some nice things about me here huh? September 6th, I’ll be there. I missed the first paper jam bikin’ across half the city on a long errand list, excited to have a spot at the second!

Do come out to the Silent Barn, July 27th (week from tomorrow!) for the Happiness 4 release party, it’s going to be fun and the book is amazing.

Leah Wishnia gets more ambitious with each issue, this thing is evolving fast.
