Your Passport to Great Art

The San Francisco Arts Commission and wonderfully talented cartoonist Jamaica Dyer are teaming up with the Isotope for PASSPORT 2010, a multi-venue art crawl and unique do-it-yourself art collecting experience.

This 2nd annual public art event takes participants on a neighborhood stroll of SF’s sexiest and most stylish venues to collect artist-designed “passport stamps” in a special booklet that, once complete, becomes a limited-edition Moleskine passport art book with original work by some of the Bay Area’s finest artists, both established and emerging.

Of course, my staff and I know a thing or two about the SF Bay Area’s finest artists, and we’re particularly thrilled to be featuring one of our favorites, Jamaica Dyer of Weird Fishes fame. This event kicks off a gallery show featuring lots of Jamaica’s original paintings adorning the Isotope walls into December. I can’t tell you how excited I am to see what she’s going to be dazzling us with!

This Weekend: SF ZineFest!

Get ready for one of my favorite weekends all year… it’s time for SF Zine Fest!

It’s no secret how much I love the mini-comics and zines, and there are few things that I think are cooler than San Francisco’s own DIY festival devoted to celebrating zines and mins. Jam-packed with the best local talents and also always some really neat folks from out of town, SF Zine Fest is definitely one of my favorite comic-centric cons anywhere.

To kick off the celebrations, tonight the Cartoon Art Museum is hosting the official pre-event with live readings by a great selection of indy creators. Including awesome folks like Susie Cagle, John Porcellino, Jamaica Dyer, Ed Luce, Isotope Award winner Jonas Madden-Connor, and featured special guest Jesse Reklaw. (more info here)

Hope to see all of you out checking out San Francisco’s great indy comic scene with me this year!
