M.E. Russell reminds us that this weekend is the Stumptown Comics Fest in Portland. Russell (who creates the journalism comic CulturePulp) is moderating a panel on non-fiction comics this Saturday. The organizer of the Fest is none other than Indigo Kelleigh and features among other artists, Same Difference creator Derek Kirk Kim. All for a paltry $3 admission fee. Lots more details here.
In the tools department, here’s an interesting program for creating pixel art, Pixen (it’s only available for Mac 10.3 and higher).
In other news, Maritza Campos writes that her house was robbed, but thankfully, she and her family are safe.
Less dramatic, but there’s a nice article on webcomics in the American University paper that features Nicholas Gurewitch (Perry Bible Fellowship) and Ryan North (Dinosaur Comics) among others.
Finally, the Digital Strips crew points to an interview with Something Positive creator Randy Milholland.
