Prepare for two big cartooning events to drop in Minneapolis this August. First is the nearly-perennial Lutefisk Sushi mini comics show at Altered Esthetics (view last year's website). I'll have much more to say about this show at the end of the this month, but for now just know that it's happening, and it's time to start planning your mini comic.
The other big event is the first ever MIX: Minneapolis Indie Expo, organized by Sarah Morean and Andy Krueger. The show is a one-day celebration of indie comics and local talent, and there will be a bake sale! The show is free for visitors if you want to just wander around, but if you want to sell some stuff the table rates are cheap! Sign up here. The official bullet point list of amenities is as follows:
- Affordable exhibition space (starting at $20)
- Free admission
- Plenty of outlets for electronics
- Free wi-fi on site
- A reading room
- A bake sale
- And more!
It all drops August 21, 2010 at The Soap Factory, with a major party at Altered Esthetics afterwards.
But don't take my word for it ... check out the King Mini-adorned website, and see how many local cartoonists you can spot in the intro video:
