New Super Maxi-Pad Girl Title Logo!

Thursday, February 4th, 2010

Much thanks goes out to David Steinlicht and Mark Simonson for their patience while I asked them dumb typography questions last month.

I think this version is much improved over the last. For example, the “S” and “G” are much bolder. I monkeyed around with fixing the stroke quite a bit in Illustrator. For example, changed the inside of the characters to have smaller strokes, while leaving bolder ones on the outside (with the exception of some notable crossover, of course)

Anyway, this baby is going to get slapped on a freaking banner soon, so it better look good!

Super Maxi-Pad Girl #3 Preview Art

Saturday, February 13th, 2010

Super Maxi-Pad Girl #3 is debuting within the next couple of months and since we’re about halfway done with the book I have some preview art to whet your appetite. Like the previous issues, this one will feature mutliple short stories,

From SMPG: Year Over Fifty

From Pidol and Mamprin Present: It’s Just What Bros Do

I’ll have more to show once the book is complete! In the meantime, you can pop over to Facebook and join the Super Maxi-Pad Girl Facebook fan-page, that is unless you already are a fan, which in that case, you’re awesome! Or, you can take a gander at the C2E2 website and see all of the talent they’ve assembled for this inaugural show. I’m so overwhelmed, that I don’t know where to begin…

St. Paul Cartoonist Conspiracy Jam! This Thursday, February 18th, 2010! NEW VENUE!

Thursday, February 18th, 2010

Join the St. Paul Cartoonist Conspiracy Cell and create a jam comic! This week we are trying a NEW VENUE, as our usual spot is being remodeled. The jamming is easy and it’s a fun time! Just bring some drawing utensils, an idea for the jam, and a few bucks to get a tasty beverage — the baristas really do appreciate that.

The jam will start promptly at 6:30 and run until…whenever. Come earlier to reserve your space! Seating can be limited at times!

The meetings are open to anyone who wants to draw with us, and the results are posted here sooner rather than later.

To join us come to:
Cahoots Coffee
1562 Selby Ave
St Paul, MN 55104
(Southeast corner of Snelling and Selby)

More not than often we head on over to grab a brew at:
O’Gara’s Bar and Grill
164 Snelling Ave N
St. Paul, MN 55104
(Right next to Cahoots!)

Bus info here.

Hope to see you there!
