  • Monsters of Webcomics runs at the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco from August 8 to December 6. There will be some printouts of finished Cat and Girl cartoons. These printouts are of better quality. I found a place. You can see Mister Chen and I trying to scam our way into the museum here.
  • HiChristina! at 632 Grand Street in Brooklyn has a whole bunch of end-of-the-summer arts events coming up.  Tuesday, August 25 is a Writer & Cartoonist Show N Tell.  Wednesday the 26th follows with some nude figure drawing.
  • For the eight issue of his Le Sketch, cartoonist Scott Morse has combed through his personal sketchbooks to compile a set of drawings of random strangers in San Francisco and Disneyland.  You’ll laugh, you’ll cry; you’ll buy it.
  • Archaia and Roddenberry Productions are hosting a launch party and signing event for Days Missing, a new sci-fi comic mini-series, at Golden Apple Comics in Los Angeles.  It’s happening this Wednesday, August 19, from 7-9.  Copies of the first issue will be available for just $0.99.
  • Fantagraphics is hosting a book release party for Xeric Winner Eroyn Franklin on Saturday, Aug. 22 at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery in Seattle.
