Dropping anchor at Linework NW 2015
Linework NW Illustration and Comics Festival
announced its new set-up for the 2015 show in Portland, OR on April 18th and 19th.
This highly regarded show is already changing up the format after a successful first year show
. Expanding from a one day show at the majestic Norse Hall, Linework will now be two days BUT have different sets of cartoonists, zinesters, artists and printmakers tabling on Saturday and Sunday. A few publishers such as Fantagraphics, Ad House, Oni, Nobrow and more will be there both days as publishing 'anchors'.
"The effect is more like a music festival than your typical comics show" explains LWNW co-founder Zack Soto. "Basically, Linework will be two one-day shows that occur back-to-back. This will allow for a broader and more diverse lineup over the course of the weekend, and should give attendees a great reason to visit the show on both days." We, for one, are very excited about next year's show and some future announcements to look forward to.
From the 2014 show, Jim Woodring signing for happy readers, Jason Fischer to his left and Ben Marra on stage.
Applications are now open until the end of the year: 12.31.14 so get it filled out, sent it and get back to making comics! Looking forward to seeing this kid come back to read the next volume in Prison Pit:
