Who said that? Um, I did -- just then!
Early this morning, I finished a sixteen and a half hour (double) shift at work and should have gone home to sleep. Instead, I ended up having a rather late 11 a.m. breakfast with Jeremy Staples and we ended up having a most interesting conversation. There is just nothing Jeremy doesn't know about zines (or if there is, he's not telling!). The man is as passionate about life and zines and a whole range of many things, as much as I am about comics and life and all those other things...so it was a most productive and pleasurable morning. I won't go into exactly what we discussed (some of that can wait until later), but let me just tell you this:
If you are living in or around the Brisbane area and want to learn how to make your own Zines and/or Comics you could join our Workshops on Zines and Independent Comics. YES! Jeremy and I are sharing our enthusiasm and knowledge to the general public in a series of upcoming workshops. These are the dates to keep aside:
June 2nd -- from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. -- This is the Introductory session to the Workshops
June 7th -- from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. -- Make your own Indie Comic
June 14th -- from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. -- Make your own Zine
These Workshops are being held at The Edge, which is near the State Library of Queensland precinct, in the Cultural Centre at Southbank. These Workshops are various prices. There is no cost in attending the Introductory session, the Comic Workshop (run by myself with Jeremy) is $35 and the Zine Workshop (run by Jeremy with myself) I have just noticed is a rather surprising $75. For some reason, I thought all workshops were going to be the same price, and I was of the belief that there was going to be a special price for those wishing to attend both the Comic and the Zine sessions. I have asked The Edge to clarify that for me.
Jeremy and I are doing all these sessions for NO FEE. Why? Because we are Nice Guys. We really are. If you do not believe that statement, then come along to the Introductory Session and find out.
