Zine Workshop, 20. September 14.00-17.00, The Mill, Riga
Inés Estrada, comic artist, illustrator, zine maker, zine fair organiser, comics blogger and mini kuš! author from Mexico City is touring Northeastern Europe and also stops in Riga!
Zines are self-made publications elaborated in limited editions, and an attractive and useful medium to distribute your work as an illustrator or artist. In this workshop we will discuss more about what is a zine, as well as what is the process for making one: from the original drawings, to the production of the copies and their distribution. The intention of the workshop is to elaborate a zine that can be reproduced later on via photocopies, or any other reproduction technique. This workshop would be best suited for artists, illustrators and graphic designers, but we encourage anyone interested to take it, regardless of their field of expertise.
While Inés will introduce you to paper-based zines, digital entrepreneur Maris Dagis will hold a presentation about the distribution of digital content! In his presentation he will tell why and how to publish on the net with lots of examples and tips from things he's learned from the authors at Sellfy.com.

š! #18 'Poetry', will be released on September 22nd, 2014
This issue presents you a wide range of international poetry comics. Some of the contributions are visual adaptations of existing poems, others are collaborative efforts between poets and comic artists, but mostly they genuinely are poems as comics or comics as poems. As you will discover, there are countless ways of interaction for the two mediums to merge into a new poetic visual art form. Cover: Dāvis Ozols More info here!
