    hey pals, i made this thing over this last month! the tape (which is very almost ready) has one long song on the other side, but here’s 6 jams from me to you. 

    I play drums on the first track (pie & coffee), but more importantly more great work from an awe-inspiring lady.

    Sequential Investigations is an exhibition of original art, prints, and wall projections showcasing some of the finest experimental artists working on the periphery of the comics form, pushing and probing the potential of sequential storytelling.

    How to talk about comics in terms that don’t ignore or even exclude one aspect or other? Most people with the slightest interest in the form know that genre trappings or age divisions don’t make any sense at this point. 30 years ago people proclaimed that comics had “grown up”, but that term seems to be moot now that comics for all and any ages have gained general acceptance. 

    The father of modern manga, Osamu Tezuka, is quoted as saying that comics “should be like air”. Depending on your interpretation, that prediction may have come true, as sequential narrative has become a natural form of expression, both for traditional comics artists trying to break into a steadily narrowing mainstream, and for artists from other fields who test the comics grammar in new, often unexpected contexts.

    That is probably the common denominator between the artists presented in this exhibition: that they use the form as naturally as breathing. Their work doesn’t relate to comics as they were, but as they have always been at their core, that is, a set of syntaxes that anyone can use to communicate their own personal message. These are no “grown-up” comics, or even a “new” kind of comics as the exhibition title could be construed; rather, they are distinct, artistic visions that are also very clearly recognizable as comics. Within the sequential framework the exhibitors probe and explore the possibilities of comics and, as it were, chart the unmapped areas in the process.

    only pics i have of the queen bee empire premiere

    This was such a blasty blast ♡

    So I thought I should write a lil update.
    The Queen Bee Empire premiere at The Rio Theatre was a total success, I’m so stoked and also so relived that everything went smoothly. It was so much fun to just sit back and watch the film with a cinema full of people as I had spent months and months collecting outfits and props, writing, shooting and editing the film and was never able to just watch it without constantly thinking about what changes had to be made, what extra work it needed etc.
    Thankyou to everyone that helped out with the event, thanks to those who helped print and sell merch and a big thanks to noworriesnoworries everythingeveryday and pinktapes for helping me set up on the day.
    Thankyou to everyone who attended, especially those who came all the way from the U.S.A !!!!! <3

    Before the feature was shown I picked some music videos/short films/trailers to be screened. In case anyone wanted to watch I’ve listed them below with click-able links to the ones you can view online:
    Sundae, K A N G O U R O U, Tuff Titties, TRANS GRRRLS: Revolution Porn Style Now!, Dick Binge Music Video, Bike House Bang, Eekum Seekum Music Video, Fed Up Fest Promo, Daddy’s Dolls, Best Slumber Party Ever.

    Unfortunately there wasn’t enough time for the cast and crew Q&A but Im planning on making a Q&A video over the summer with those involved.
    Many people are asking if theres going to be more screenings in the future or if they can watch online. The answer is yes. I’m planning on having some California screenings (LA + The Bay) in June along with some more North American screenings later in the summer. I’m also currently in the process of talking to an online distributor, which if all goes to plan the film will be online as of June. All updates will be published on my tumblr and on www.queenbeeempire.com

    The are still some shirts available from the preimere. You can get there here ——-> www.queenbeeempire.bigcartel.com/
    the sizes and colours are pretty random as they are the left overs but more shirts + pillowcases + patches will be available in a few weeks.
