Hiatus: Summer 2015

Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 12.41.21 PM

As you may know, for the next 6-7 weeks, I will be in New York City to attend the Summer Publishing Institute (SPI) at New York University: School of Professional Studies. This is supposed to be a very intense program, so I’ve decided to put this blog on hiatus while I’m attending.

Don’t worry: I plan on continuing to post on Twitter (@gegallas) and Facebook (facebook.com/gegallas) throughout the coming weeks. Also, once the hiatus is over, I have a number of exciting posts I’ll be able to share with you, including:

  • Photos of my adventures in New York City!

  • New behind-the-scenes images from my graphic novel The Poet and the Flea!

  • Never before seen illustrations from various projects!

  • …and much, much more!!!

Many thanks to my followers for all your support! I’ll be back soon! :)

–G. E.

Experience of SPX 2014

SPX 2014 01

I had a wonderful time at SPX 2014, my second time attending and exhibiting at this event (which happens to take place in the very same room of my high school prom — surreal!). I was able to reconnect with a few artists I met last year, discover some really amazing artists I haven’t encountered before, and finally meet a few artists I’ve come to know online in person.

Many thanks to Paul Roth, who interviewed me for his YouTube channel!

Also, many thanks to The Library of Congress (www.loc.gov) for adding The Poet and the Flea zine to the Small Press Expo Collection at The Library of Congress! For more information, please visit spxpo.com/about/loc.

SPX 2014 02

The first time I was exposed to Charles Burns’s work was through Mark Morris’s The Hard Nut, which I used to watch over and over again on a VHS recording as a kid. Years later, I revisited The Hard Nut and consequently really got into Burns’s Black Hole. I was ecstatic to hear the Burns would be at SPX! To my absolute surprise, I was first in line. Not only did I get his autograph and chat with him, but he seemed excited to receive a copy of The Poet and the Flea preview zine. :)

*********

SPX 2014 03

I’ve been following Noah Van Sciver for a few years now and really admire his unique style and use of historical characters and events. I actually picked up A City of Whisky & Fire and The Death of Elijah Lovejoy at Forbidden Planet during my last trip to New York, but brought them with me to get his autograph. I also picked up a copy of his new zine Slow Graffiti which has some interesting, more contemporary stories. It was wonderful meeting Noah and I hope to see him again next year!

*********

SPX 2014 04

I was so excited to finally me Ryan Thompson in person!!! I’ve admired his work (Comics I Admire: “Frolic”) for a few years now and was excited to receive his zine Esper’s Toxin. He and his girlfriend were really sweet and I can’t wait for him to reboot Frolic! :D

*********

SPX 2014 05

After meeting Santi at DC Zinefest in August, I wanted to get my hands on a copy of the full collection of Lunatic Tales, inspired by old-fashioned cartoons. Through Twitter, I asked Santi to bring one to SPX for me and was ready to pay the full $10 for it, but he gave it to be for free! (I insisted he take a few of my art prints, so I didn’t feel guilty.) I can’t wait to have a moment to sit down and really enjoy this awesome series.

*********

SPX 2014 07

I met Anuj Shrestha at last year’s SPX, immediately fell in love with his series Genus, and bought volumes 1 through 3. So I just had to get my hands on volume 4 this year. The story reminds me a bit of The Matrix for some reason, but with a floral twist. I was very excited that he remembered me and we had a fun and hilarious chat!

*********

SPX 2014 06

R. Bensen seemed so incredibly excited to pick up a copy of The Poet and the Flea zine, I just had to return the favor. And I’m so glad I did! His work has many biblical themes, but with a wonderful splash of whimsy and mischief. I particularly like The Garden of Earthy Delight, which the artist said was his most accomplished work. Another artist I hope to see next year!

  • The Garden of Earthly Delight and My Biblical Daydreams #1 by R. Bensen; Spitting Out the Demons by David Hanks and R. Bensen: mybiblicaldaydreams.tumblr.com.

SPX 2014 10

I was very surprised to see Josceline Fenton at SPX — she traveled all the way from the UK just for this two-day expo! I’ve been following her whimsical webcomic Hemlock for some time now. I was actually a bit nervous to talk to her, but she was so incredibly friendly. She even gave me a free art print (above), which I hope to frame. :D

*********

SPX 2014 09

I just happened to stumble across this little gem that features adorable Jane Austen-esque spiders in empire-waist dresses who accidentally eat their suitors. So charming and clever! I wish there was a whole series!

*********

SPX 2014 08

This is a funny little comic I was given by one of its artists (I’m not sure if it was Alex or Raynato). He was a nice guy and the zine has a cute, little concept that reminds me a bit of Courage the Cowardly Dog and Nodame Cantabile for reasons I can’t quite explain.

*********

SPX 2014 11

These are the zines of my SPX table neighbors Carlos and Bryan! I had a lot of fun chatting with them throughout the expo and I can’t wait to sit down and take a closer look at their work. I’m especially amused by the way in which Bryan draws Carlos — it looks just like him!!

First Zine Contest WINNER: Killkaties!!!

Related Posts: First Zine Progress and Contest: Round Three!!

***

As some of you may know, we finally have a winner for my first zine contest!

★THE WINNER: killkaties.wordpress.com

Killkaties, a fellow blogger/illustrator/storyteller, correctly guessed that my first zine is an illustrated rendering of Dante Gabriel Rossetti’s poem “Smithereens” also known as “Mammon’s Ring-Posy.”

It’s a pretty obscure and strange little poem, but that’s why I enjoy it so much (and hope you all will too). Production of the zine is underway and I hope to have it for sale on my upcoming online store sometime this Summer.

I admire Killkaties quirky and expressive illustrations greatly and have so much fun reading his blog, so I’m very excited to have sent him a free copy of my zine in the mail. :) I was also thrilled that he drew me into his crazy adventures!

The following images belong to Killkaties.
