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.

The Collected Hungry Bottom Comics just got a lovely write-up in The Chicago Tribune!"When Eric Kostiuk Williams published his first issue of Hungry Bottom Comics in 2012, not only was he emerging as an exceptional cartoonist, he was crafting work so fresh and charming that it strained the walls segregating niches. Here was a comic specifically about gay identity featuring explicit scenes and analysis of conflicts about masculinity. Yet his youthful voice was so honest and engaging that it could speak to everyone.
While it’s possible to see hints of gay comix icon Howard Cruse and the late Dori Seda in his work, the Canadian illustrator seems much more inspired by fashion, contemporary art and pop culture (he depicts his mother as Kelly Rowland from Destiny’s Child). He imagines his spirit guide as an anthropomorphic knot of braided hair extensions, and his dense, panel-challenging design feels as if he’s intricately weaving images and visual ideas together. The three issues collected here see Williams go from a young sexual explorer giddy with discovery to a still-young celibate seeker of self to a maturing but still pretty young traveler whose visit to Berlin naturally lands him in decadent gay dance clubs. It’s there his heart finds a brief, but deep, Harlequin novel-esque overseas romance. Williams is a developing talent, but I can’t imagine a much more accomplished debut than this.”

Excellent write up of some of my favorite comics! from Eric Kostiuk WIliams, so great! He’s here on tumblr!

Some overworked pencils for Hot Dog Beach 3, discussion of palm trees in bars…are they appropriate? Some discussion of possible drink orders and all that is not available but sounds enjoyable.
