Autoptic Festival Exclusive – Combat Paper NJ

Logo_web

Be sure to stop by my table at the upcoming Autoptic Festival (August 8-9, 2015) as I’ll be showcasing the work of Combat Paper NJ. Combat Paper is a program of the Printmaking Center of New Jersey, run by veterans for veterans.

Dave Keefe, the director of Combat Paper (and more importantly my nephew), is a former Marine who served in Iraq and holds a master’s in fine arts in painting from Montclair State.

The paper for each print is made from military uniforms that have been shredded, pulped and pressed. Veterans are invited to bring their uniforms to Combat Paper’s weekly open workshop and, through the steps of traditional papermaking, transform them into platforms for their works of art. A process both transformative and cathartic that aids in helping veterans move ahead with their lives.


Couldn’t be prouder of the work Dave has done, so be sure to stop by my table (#57) to check it out!

What is Autoptic?
Autoptic features not only cartoonists and zinesters, but also poster artists, printmakers, musicians, illustrators, designers, and more – ranging from the exclusively local to the internationally acclaimed.

There will also be satellite music events that will coincide with the expo as well as a doubling down with their international partners (the French based ChiFouMi) for on-site zine and comics workshops, creating a dedicated kid’s area, hosting an art show, and much more.

When and Where?
Autoptic is August 8th and 9th at the Aria event space, located at 105 North 1st street in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota.

What does it cost?
It is free to the public.

Queens University - Belfast, Ireland
Queen’s University Belfast

I recently had the opportunity to attend Q-Con XXII in Belfast, Ireland. It was held June 19-21 and is one of Ireland’s biggest gaming and anime conventions.

A special thanks to Aíne (red shirt) and Alianne (blue shirt) at registration who got me all set up when I got there.

On a side note, the neck lanyards they gave you on arrival were amazing. They contained all the information you needed and more – incredibly handy.

As mentioned, I went to Q-Con primarily for their Artist Alley, but there was plenty of great cosplay on hand as well.

As this was my very first time overseas, here’s hoping I can make it to more comic cons abroad in the near future…
