Slithering Sleep is HERE!

May I present… SLITHERING SLEEP!


Slithering Sleep

This has been an amazing project to work on, as it has slowly and mysteriously developed over the course of the last year to such an amazing culmination. Danielle is an amazingly talented artist and it’s really been an honor to work with her so closely to make this book. Slithering Sleep was made in a limited print run of 500 copies, and each copy is assembled by hand, with a seven panel centerfold stapled into the center of the larger book. A perfectly appropriate fit in that case for its premiere at the 3rd Annual Short Run Small Press Festival in Seattle. By the end of the show, we’d actually sold all the copies that we brought with us!

Slithering Sleep centerfoldOn the whole, Short Run is a great festival and it continues to be a really inspiring show for us to attend, as well as seeming to be growing more each year and turning into something really unique among those where we try to make a regular appearance. It was great to see folks caught by the cover of Slithering Sleep as they were walking past the table and get drawn in. Copies were flying off the table! This festival also seems to really showcase the strength of the community of creative people in the Northwest and it’s exciting to be a part of it! Thanks to the awesome organizers that make this festival happen – Kelly Froh, Eroyn Franklin, and Janice Headley. We’ll definitely be back next year!

Short Run 2013Short Run represents a cap to 2013 in terms of our festival appearances and releases, but it also means that we’ll soon be making some announcements about some of the projects already in the works for 2014, including the new planned release date for Poor Thing #2, which unfortunately had to be pushed back due to Drew moving across the country to the big city of New York. More to come soon!

Thanks for reading!

Fall 2013 Festival Schedule!

This November we’re coming onto the festival circuit with a couple really fantastic book shows and some awesome new books coming out, including new work from Joel Skavdahl, Drew Miller, and Danielle Burton.

 

November 9th – Comic Arts Brooklyn (Brooklyn, NY)

Comic Arts BrooklynSpringing from the ashes of the legendary Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival, this show seems to continue in the same spirit with it’s predecessor, bringing together comics, illustration and design aesthetics into a singular show.
Drew Miller will be running the table all day and if you’re good to him, he’ll probably sign your copy of Poor Thing #1.

We will be releasing Danielle Burton’s Slithering Sleep, a visionary comic journey by a supremely talented newcomer to the comics scene. After knowing Danielle for so long, it’s great to have finally gotten the chance to do a book with her.

Also at this show we’ll have new work from Joel Skavdahl, which will be seeing its festival premiere, including BLACK and CAMP.

 

November 30th – Short Run (Seattle, WA)

Short Run!Short Run is a fantastic show that spotlights the northwest’s finest creators of small press publications! We’re proud to have been a part of this festival since its inception and are excited to return this year with more new books, including the long awaited Poor Thing #2 by Drew Miller!

Cullen Beckhorn and Joel Skavdahl bouncing the beats at the table all day long!

Another Awesome Unknown!

Its been a couple weeks since the awesome Unknown Music Festival in Anacortes, WA and just like last year, I’m feeling so inspired by all the awesome stuff I saw there. Thanks to Genevieve Castree and Phil Elverum who put together another great festival!

I was able to come out for the book fair part of the show and felt honored to have Neoglyphic Media represented in such a small space alongside creators including Fantagraphics and Floating World Comics.

For this show Drew and I put together a little zine called Zone, which includes non-comic pen drawings and xerox experiments. This was produced in a one-time edition of only 30 copies. There are still some left that we’ll be listing on here soon.

Anacortes, hope to be back next year to do it again!

Drop the BRICK

BRICK BRICK by Joel Skavdahl has just been printed and will be released this Saturday at the Olympia Comics Festival. If you’re in Olympia this weekend, this is a free one day festival that is entirely creator focused!

Neoglyphic Media will be represented by Cullen Beckhorn and Joel Skavdahl, but we’ll also have books from other self-publishing authors who’s work we distribute.

Also, Neoglyphic Media publisher Cullen Beckhorn will appear on the Small Press Publishers Roundtable moderated by Roberta Gregory at 2:00 PM

After the comic show is over we’ll be having hosting a release party for BRICK at The Barn (1710 Overhulse) featuring the triumphant return of CRUMBS to the West Coast and a dance set from Seagull Invasion!
