So I've recently moved to Chicago and mostly work from home, which is awesome in some ways, but can make it hard to get out and connect to new people. It'd also be great to have some more motivation for doing creative stuff. It'd be cool just to meet some awesome people around here, especially if you're interested in doing collaborative projects...

I made a new zine!

You can either buy it on my ETSY or email me at VanessaCapshaw@gmail.com for a trade <3
But I wrote my first book and you can pre-order it. There's also a reward in the kickstarter for a 5 book pre-order at a wholesale rate if any distros would be interested in carrying it. It's a comic book to be exact - stemming from my zines, List and Everydaypants.
"Year One is about being in a new place, trying to convince yourself to be outgoing, reassuring yourself that going to bed at 9pm on a Friday night will not kill your social life, new adventures with new friends, being confident, exploring new relationships, keeping in touch with old friends, the highs of summer and the lows of winter, embracing community, tiptoeing toward new love, holding on to an old one, family, and friends that are like family, open relationships, punk community, companionship, loss and grief, appreciating home while searching for new variations of that word, and generally being a twenty-something year old trying to figure things out."
I drew 2-3 pages of comics for every week that went by for my first year in Philadelphia. Features weeks including the Chicago Zine Fest, DC Zine Fest, and Philly Zine Fest! Maybe you'll spot yourself. Lots of zine friends and punk friends are in it, as well as several trips to Chicago.
Also, if this shouldn't be a post, let me know and I can delete it!
Hey y'all, the first Chicago Alternative Comics Expo is taking place June 16 & 17th! Tons of amazing minicomics folks will be there. Hope you'll make it if you can. Here's the event page.

Hi everybody! I have to update - I gave all of the zines to new homes. You can possibly find some at http://readwritelibrary.org/ or request a zine trade with me for my own zines, but the pile I was donating is all gone now.
