Hey! I’m organizing a little cat zine and want you to be a part of it!

The Annex Cat Rescue (annexcatrescue.ca) is an organization that runs entirely off donations in Toronto, Ontario. I’ve adopted my own cats from them, made friends through them and love supporting them however I can. 

All profits made off this zine will be donated directly to the ACR. The only money I take from the earnings will be to cover printing costs and nothing more. You will keep all the rights to your work. I will only be using your work in this zine to raise money for the ACR.

———

The title of this zine is, “Cat, get off my zine.”

Final Print Size: 4.25 x 5.5 Black & White (book will be portrait orientation)

———-

The theme of this zine is your cat’s butt.

No seriously.

How has your cat’s butt affected your daily life? From affectionately pushing it in your face to pooping in your tub because you haven’t been home for two days. From sitting on that freshly folded laundry to mashing a love letter on your keyboard when you’re not looking. Hell, you can just draw a cute picture of your cat’s butt.

———–

Sign up will be open until September 21th. I’ll then choose 15 artists. If I receive way more applications than anticipated, well I’ll think about expanding it! If I receive less than 15, then everyone wins! This is meant to be fun but I need to limit the size for time/costs sake. 

The zine will debut November 1, 2014 at Toronto’s Canzine fair. 

You can e-mail me at neomonki@gmail.com if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks guys!

Please apply to the zine here: http://goo.gl/AEYbBU

Canzine is almost here! I’ll be at Canzine Toronto for the first time on Saturday, November 1st.

I will have comic books. Which ones? The ones you see above, which are…

Other Stories and the Horse You Rode in On (2013, 188 pages, Conundrum Press) - A collection of short stories about ghosts, children, memory, and people without faces. Nominated for a Doug Wright Spotlight Award.

Hollow in the Hollows (2014, 32 pages, One Percent Press) - A young girl becomes obsessed with something secret she finds in a hollow tree. A short story about bones, sticks cigarettes, and karate.

Irene 4 and 5 (2014, 152 and 160 pages, Irene) - Irene 5 makes its Canadian debut at Canzine! This ongoing comics and art anthology is co-edited by Andy Warner, d.w., and me. These books contain great work from cartoonists in Canada, the U.S., Lebanon, Ireland, Australia, and Colombia.

I hope to see you at Canzine. Please come over and say hello.

(thanks to good pal, Marta Chudolinska who couldn’t attend and let me take her table. Check out Marta’s work– she’s a good one).
