CAKE is a weekend-long celebration of independent comics. Featuring comics for sale, workshops, exhibitions, panel discussions and more, CAKE is dedicated to fostering community and dialogue amongst independent artists, small presses, publishers and readers. CAKE 2013 will take place on June 15th & 16th, at the Center on Halsted.

BRAIN FRAME is a performative comix reading series founded and organized by Lyra Hill. BRAIN FRAME gives comics and zine artists an opportunity to interpret their work in front of an open minded audience. Readings often include costumes, props, music, sound, performance, puppetry, poetry, and more.

At CAKE FRAME, a benefit for the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo hosted by BRAIN FRAME, the performative comix reading series, Andy Burkholder read an occasionally wry, occasionally abstract, and always aesthetically precise series of vignettes in the lives of people named Chris, aptly entitled: Chris, on April 12th, 2013.

CAKE FRAME, the Brain Frame/CAKE benefit show, was an enormous success. We raised over $2,500 towards chairs, tables, honorariums, and printed matter for the 2013 Chicago Alternative Comics Expo!

In between comix performances from Andy Burkholder, Alyssa Herlocher, Jeremy Pettis and Paul Nudd, our host Lyra Hill auctioned off dozens of original artworks by Chicago cartoonists. Emma Rand, Brain Frame’s astronomically talented intern, played Vanna White while musicians Stephen Ptácek and Alex Inglizian improvised accompaniment.

A couple weeks ago, Cake Frame- a collaborative comix reading between the masterminds of Brain Frame and CAKE (Chicago Alternative Comics Expo), auction, and fundraiser for CAKE took place at the Peanut Gallery.

I made a jam comic with some of the artists there.

I also got some portraits of the contributors and other artists in between readings. Included here are Joe Tallarico, Andy Burkholder, Alyssa Herlocher, Neil Brideau, Ben Bertin, Jeremy Pettis, a portrait of me by J. Tallarico, and Lyra Hill.
