This week we’re happy to add THREE new books by Cathy Hannah, whose comics are always a great read! Two books collect Cathy’s herculean practice of drawing an autobio comic a day, capturing a small vignettes of her life. Everyday collects single-panel cartoons from 2017, and The Year We Met collects three-panel comics from 2019! The Lonely Grave of Bobby Franks retells the true crime story of Leopold & Loeb, two restless rich teenagers who kidnapped and murdered 14-year old Bobby Franks in 1924.
Cathy draws a comic every dang day! We usually only get to our drawing board once a week, when we host Open Studio on Fridays! The 4:00 – 6:00 event is broken up into four 20-minute quiet work sessions with 10-minute breaks in between for socializing and water drinking. Whatever your comics output, Open Studio is a great way to make time to work on your comics, and to meet and build friendships with other cartoonists from around the country!

If you’re not feeling the drawing part, and just want to talk with fellow cartoonists, join us Sunday, December 6 for Cartoonist Coffee for 15-minute small-group conversations. Register to get the zoom link at https://forms.gle/uPTg6hMHdXwstsLk6
