As has become habit on the weekends, here's a recap of recent posts going on over at the Electric Ant Zine Blog. Thanks to folks that have linked to it or come over and left comments!
+ Screencaps from the indie game collaboration by our buddies (and EA#1 contributors) Derek Yu, Hellen Jo, and Calvin Wong. [link]
+ A lovely animated short film by wunderkind Elio, featuring the MIDI stylings by Michael DeForge! [link]
+ Admiral Adama portraits by Anthony Wu (and details about his upcoming Battlestar Galactica manga from TokyoPop)! [link]
+ Recommendations for the animated films of Koji Yamamura, new Comix Claptop podcast w/ Hellen & Calvin, and a gallery show featuring works by Saicoink in April. [link] [link] [link]
+ A gallery of incredible posters/fliers and works by Adachi Kokajyou, my new favorite design crew. You probably may already know them from their work for Guruguru Eigakan; now I'm on a mission to track down everything Adachi has done. [link]
+ More retardo collage postcards by me - I think I'm gonna make a cheap xerox zine of them for APE 2009. Want to become pen pals? [link]
+ A gallery of paintings of presidential intimacy by zine contributor and our friend Justine Lai, who got insanely internet famous this week with posts on her work at Boing Boing, Jezebel, Drawn, Journalista, and Gawker. Site traffic went up about 10x for a few days from all the publicity! [link]
+ Electric Ant #2 feature work has begun! Spurred on by fan art 4-koma manga by Root, I've sent invites to a number of contributors. In addition to the usual gang, tentative new folks on board are getting me super excited (Dash Shaw! Jon Verymilyea! Shawn Cheng! Aeron Alfrey!). The issue will be released in time for the Small Press Expo in September.
+ And more stuff being posted all the time... (Drop by, say hi, and browse through the previous pages at the bottom)
