GALAXIA XXI - the future of comics is now at AMADORA BD
Photo:Hugo Lima
This was my little corner directly at the beginning of the exhibition: On the left side you could see original artwork from "Edward Hopper on Foodstamps", in the middle they showed three zines by "Re:Surgo" (" David Duchovny on Vacation" by Cynthia Kittler and "Unknown Artist on Bad Cheese" by Joakim Ojanen and my "Edward Hopper...") and on the right side were two original pages from "The windmill" which were sent directly from the Chicks On Comics - exhibition in Buenos Aires to Lisboa.

The exhibition consisted of several rooms with different themes. The zines from Re:Surgo! and my work were in a room dedicated to handmade zines and printing-techniques like lino-cut and screen-printing.
More photos from the very well made and curated exhibition can be found HERE.
Curators: Sara Figueiredo Costa and Luís Salvado.

A new blog-post is up on comic-sport. Also powerpaola posted three pages of a Chicks On Comics-jam-comic that we did last year when Sole Otero, Clara Lagos and powerpaola visited Berlin!

I'm now selling "Rohdiamant" in these stores.
Amongst them is the Fantagraphics Bookstore in Seattle. With my new zine comes the poster "The chocolate factory" and across from the Fantagraphics Bookstore just opened a chocolate factory last week! Here is photo of it, taken by shop-owner Larry Reid from his door. It actually is the favourite chocolate of the Obama's that's produced there and on Facebook has already been suggested to engrave my ideas in this chocolate and serve it to the president of the U.S..

ROHDIAMANT at MONTAGEHALLE // 30. 08. - 04. 09. 2014
The gallery from outside. -----------------------------------------
The bar with the zine Rohdiamant (Diamond in the raw). The exhibition was also the release-party of this comic. It is a collection of fragments and comes with a poster and the mini-zine "Geology of Butches".
The main room. 20 years ago the gallery was a brothel. The galery owners Sabrina and Sandra Schieke decided to leave parts of the interior as it has been preserved since then.
I only added this poster and a mountain of crumpled black xeroxed paper. It was meant to represent the dilemma of perfectionism. On the back of the zine "Rohdiamant" you find the same picture with this text:

„In a world turned to stone what
can you do but make stones your friends.“ This formed the basis for the
short story „Raw Diamond“. It was never fi nished. Here is the last panel
I ever drew for it. To me, this encapsulates perfectly the dilemma of
perfectionism - and is one of the reasons why I created this collection of
fragments. I have called this zine „Raw Diamond“ because it represents
the exact opposite: something unfi nished that is beautiful for that very
reason: because it is not perfectly polished.

Translation: Nicola Heine
On your way to the two smaller ex-"work rooms" of the brothel there was this panel from a story about a prostitute from a page that I didn't use in "Rohdiamant". More of these unused panels can be found here.
Furthermore I showed this pencil which I own since circa 1988. I'm from eastern Germany, so a sparkling pencil with a diamond on it was a real treasure back then.
The first "work room" with the original wallpaper.
"The world seen with the eyes of a xerox-machine"
When you leave a xerox-machine open, it copies only black. So, this is what it sees, when it looks into the world...
The second "work room" was themed around stones and chocolate.
A friend of mine had a box of chocolates like this. When she was a kid, she collected stones and laid them on cotton wool in an old box of chocolate. For this exhibition we re-built it together.
The original drawing of "The chololate factory", which is also as a poster in the zine "Rohdiamant". I drew this picture after a dream of mine.

Finally you can have a look inside my new zine ROHDIAMANT and buy it at my webshop. If you are located outside of Europe you can also try if storenvy works better. The zine debuted last week at the Comicfestival in Helsinki. Photos from the exhibition at MONTAGEHALLE will follow soon.

Der Mädchentreff LUCY auf der Robert-Matzke-Str. 23 in Dresden hat eine neue schicke Fenstergestaltung, für die ich die beiden Figuren gezeichnet habe. Ich freue mich, dass ich hier die Möglichkeit hatte, etwas für Mädchen, die es im Leben nicht so leicht haben, zu tun und hoffe, dass das Motiv Mut macht, den Mädchentreff zu besuchen. Danke an Anne Tews für Umsetzung des Motivs auf dem Fenster!

Another Chicks on Comics -exhibition in Buenos Aires! Septembre 13th to Octobre 6th!

CHICKS ON COMICS EN BUENOS AIRES

Chicks on Comics es un blog en donde 9 historietistas mujeres conversan.
Entre diferentes ciudades de América y Europa se entrecruzan viñetas y diálogos.
Este colectivo internacional, ya expuso en Manizales (Colombia), Berlín (Alemania) y Buenos Aires. Y en septiembre las chicks regresan a la Argentina con una muestra en Casa Florida.
La muestra se compone de historietas creadas a partir de la combinación de un género y un medio de transporte (musical + bicicleta, road movie + camión , ciencia ficción + bote, entre otras) y de conversaciones silenciosas, algo así como un cadáver exquisito ilustrado.

Inauguración: 13 de septiembre de 2014, 19 hs.
Cierre: 6 de octubre de 2014

Lugar: Casa Florida Galería, Gral. José María Paz 1530 , Florida. Vicente López, Buenos Aires

Las Chicks on comics son:
Powerpaola (ecuatoriana) desde Buenos Aires
Ulla Loge (alemana) desde Berlín
Clara Lagos (argentina) desde Buenos Aires
Maartje Schalkx (holandesa) desde Londres
Sole Otero (argentina) desde Buenos Aires
Lilli Loge (alemana) desde Berlín
Caro Chinaski (argentina) desde Buenos Aires
Anna Bas Backer (holandesa) desde Berlín
Delius (argentina) desde Buenos Aires

This Friday! Mega Book Release by Lubok/ Pogo Books/ Re:Surgo! at In:Surgo!, Torstrasse 110, Berlin. Amongst many others it's the release-party of my Mini-Zine "Edward Hopper on Foodstamps".

 

................................................................24.08.2014..................................................................

„Was soll man in einer versteinerten Welt anderes tun, als sich mit den Steinen anzufreunden?“. Aus dieser Notiz entstand die Kurzgeschichte „Rohdiamant“. Sie wurde nie fertig. Im letzten Panel, das ich dafür zeichnete, steht eine Turnerin mit angsterfülltem Gesicht auf einem Stufenbarren. Für mich ist dieses Bild die perfekte Darstellung des Perfektionismus – und einer der Gründe, warum ich nun ein Heft mit Fragmenten fülle. Ich nenne das Heft „Rohdiamant“ weil es für das Gegenteil steht: für etwas Unfertiges, das so schön ist, gerade weil es nicht perfekt glatt geschliffen ist.

 

................................................................10.08.2014..................................................................

This card comes with my latest zine "Edward Hopper on Foodstamps" if you buy it at In:Surgo!, but it will also be available at "Renate Comics" soon and everywhere else where you can buy my stuff.

Today I start to post each day one unused panel from pages that didn't make it into my upcoming zine "Rohdiamant"on tumblr.

 

................................................................26.07.2014..................................................................

By the end of August I will finally publish the third part of my "mini-comics-trilogy": ROHDIAMANT (in English: "Rawdiamond"). It is a collection of fragments, but there are still a lot of drawings that I didn't use for it. That's why, starting next week, I'll post one unused drawing a day on my tumblr for the length of one month.

My latest selfpublished comic Lies die kind has been nominated in the short-form-category of the Comic and Cartoon Art Annual of the Society of Illustrators in New York.

Judith Butler visited the Feminist Pencil - exhibition that opened yesterday in Oslo. Victoria Lomasko wrote on Facebook: "Judith Butler and Rosi Braidotti liked the exhibition and the Feminist Pencil project." I'm not participating in the Oslo exhibition, but I'm very happy to be part of this amazing project!

Here are (nearly) all participants of the Comicbattle at Comic Invasion Berlin last weekend. The first price was a golden beer and I almost puked as I got it, because of a huge hangover from the night before... But it was a really funny event! Thanks to everybody!
From left to right: Gregor Hinz (organisator, moderator of the Battle), "Randale Robert" (Robert Loebel), "der kleine Franzose" (Silvain Masas), me, "Blutwurst", "Mc Fitty" (Tim Gaedke), the amazing pianist, Marc Seestedt (organisator of the Comic Invasion) and Mawil (organisator and moderator of the Battle).
And here is a video of the Comic Invasion. In the end there are also some pictures of the Comicbattle.

I finally got myself a vimeo-account and uploaded this video that I did in 2000, when I was 20 years old. It was supposed to be a little animation for the website of the band Tak-Tik, which was, as far as I remember, never used.
