Weekend Round Up…9 March 2012

I haven’t done one of these in a while, but I was just looking at graphic medicine ‘s site & they’ve just posted a ton of new links so I couldn’t resist!

To watch/listen to

Forbidden Planet has recently been having the nominees for the Myriad 1st Fictions prize guest blog about their work. This week has included posts by Paula Knight about her graphic novel “The Facts of Life” and Thom Ferrier regarding his GN “The Enlightenment of Iwan James.” (I’ve seen excerpts of both these works and can guarantee that they’re wonderful)

Paula Knight’s podcast of her talk “from the Leeds Comics Forum on the stigma of miscarriage and resulting childlessness” is also up over on the Graphic Medicine blog, so be sure to check that out as well.

To look forward to

A little bird told me that Katie Green is progressing nicely on her own “Lighter Than My Shadow”–if you haven’t yet checked out her blog, be sure to head over there. Not only is she very talented but she’s a wonderful encourager as well.

Laydeez do Comics: Stateside!
The monthly comic get together (in London) organized by Sarah Lightman & Nicola Streeten is coming to America! (Brooklyn specifically) on 7 April…Sarah L & Michael Kaminer of the “Graphic Details: Confessional…” exhibit will be there and I’ve heard rumors that introspectivenarwhal will, too.

Well, that’s all folks! Have a loverly weekend…
