I'm going to be at World Maker Faire New York this weekend, but if I wasn't, I'd be sorely tempted to attend MICE 2012, the Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo in Cambridge. It's billed as an "event dedicated to independent and alternative comics, webcomics and zines." I would finally be able to meet Danny Hellman, who drew many amazing illustrations and a cover for bOING bOING (the zine). Danny will debut his new limited edition screen print "Cemetery Nude" (left) at the expo. And the great R. Sikoryak will be there to talk about his work over the last two decades, including his astounding book, Masterpiece Comics (sample above).
The MICE workshops sound really good: Character Drawing with Bob Flynn, Fold-Out Comics, Digital Tools for the Comic Book Artist, Drawing with NO PAIN! Injury Prevention for Cartoonists, Comics and Medicine, and more.
