I went to Chicago Zinefest 2013

Chicago Zinefest ROCKS!

I had tabled at Zinefest in the past, but this year I opted to just attend and enjoy the show.  And boy did I!  This show was full of some awesome folks!  Here’s some of what I saw:


The Great and Powerful Beth Hetland had her Hourly Comics minis available!

Zinefest13_HendricksThe always fantastic R. Hendricks (Stranger Two Stranger) had this awesome mini of portraits.

Zinefest13_AshleyAshley Elander was, as usual, putting the rest of us to shame by showcasing her phenomenal drawing skills.

Zinefest13_KseniyaYaroshI fell in love with this accordion mini compilation of text book illustrations from Kseniya Yarosh.

Zinefest13_MarnieI was happy to catch up with the lovely Marnie Galloway, who had the new editions of In the Sounds and Seas.

Zinefest13_ChrisGarciaNext to Marnie, I discovered a talented gentleman named Chris Garcia.  He had previews of his upcoming beautiful first comic  ever (!)

Zinefest13_ComerfordAnd the youngest and most enthusiastic exhibitor at the show had to be Henry Comerford!  Super awesome one page comics!

All in all, Zinefest 2013 was a blast.  I can’t wait to see more from all these folks.  I really need to table here next year!

Here’s a preview of a new Simon comic I’m cooking up…


I thought I had posted this before, but I guess not:


I did this poster for the fine folks over at In This Issue Podcast.  It just so happens I’ll be tabling with these goofballs at TRICON in 3 weeks!

Thanks for checking in ya’ll!

  1. Hey Tyrell! It was good to touch base with you again at the CZF! Thanks for the shout out on “Depictions”. I was going to tell you I saw on your blog the value of bone folders, and you were right! Changed my life for sure. Hopefully I will see you at CAKE! Good luck on the next project

      Great to see you Robert! Glad the bone folder advice paid off! The new book looks awesome. Portraits are so hard to pull off and you really made a nice collection there. Hope to see you at future shows as well!
