Friends of Lulu Prints

My buddy Jed, over at The Albatross Press contacted me a few weeks ago about making some letterpress prints to benefit Friends of Lulu. For those of you not familiar with the organization, Friends of Lulu is a national nonprofit organization that promotes and encourages female readership and participation in the comic book industry. A good cause if ever there was one!

Jed wanted me to try and capture that feeling of immersion one gets when returning home after a comic convention with a stack of new comics. One girl is reading up a storm and the other has made the jump to creating her own comics! These were a lot of fun to draw. :)

These will be two individual letterpress prints, which will be available for sale at this years MoCCA Arts Fest June 7th and 8th in New York City. If you can make it, swing by the Friends of Lulu table and buy a print!

(jeez, my fourth post in a row in black and white... I gotta get some color going in here!)
