Lookit all that stuff! [Apr. 5th, 2009|10:47 am]
I am going be at the Stumptown Comics Festival in Portland, OR this April 18 and 19. It's my first time there! I'm very excited. I hear Portland has good doughnuts (and strip clubs).

I'm doing a panel on Sunday with Erika Moen, where we'll chat about nonsense and probably catcall people in the audience.

I'll sign, do sketches, look frenzied. It'll be great. Come see me!

I have a whole boatload of stuff to sell at my table this year. Wanna see what I got?

French Milk: The official published edition of my drawn journal, detailing a six-week trip to Paris with my mother to celebrate her fiftieth birthday and my college graduation.

Pretty Little Book: A collection of some of my color comics! Printed in color with a matte cover and a few pretty new comics that have never been seen before!

A Month of Weekly Hourlies: A little collection of this year's month of wednesday hourly comics.

Drawn to You: A collaboration between Erika Moen and myself, containing a long-distance conversational comic, discussing art, sexuality, music, and all manner of nonsense.

Radiator Days: A collection of my black and white comics from 2007-2008.

Heart Seed Snow Circuit: Meditating on art, passion and sex, with various inanimate objects.

Finding Cassady: A children's book I did with my aunt for my little cousin, telling the story about their search for the perfect dog.

My watercolor portrait series, and prints of all 24 portraits!

Porn Poster: Another collaboration between me and Erika Moen. A sprawling and lovingly drawn image of delighted sexuality! Nearly every fetish Erika and I could think up, and some that we're not sure actually exist... but here's hoping.

A couple copies of Pretty/Nerdy: My CD of original ukulele and guitar music, ranging from nerdy to pretty nerdy in content.

A couple copies of Comic Tunes : A collection of tunes by comics artists, for comics people.

A few Cheese T-Shirts: Modeled here by the lovely Erika Moen. Available in sizes S to XL.

Some original artwork: Dude, I have no idea how to price this or whether to sell it at all or what. It's just from this year alone, only the stuff I could bear to look at, and it's like 200 pages of crap. I have no idea what to do with it, but I'm bringing it because it's somehow really satisfying to flip through a portfolio of finished work and go, "listen to the souuuund it makes!"


I Saw You: An anthology of missed connections, edited by Julia Wertz. My story is about a missing person's flyer I saw in my old neighborhood.

Secrets and Lies: A collection of stories of deceit and intrigue. My story is about girls and boys and what they keep from one another in the secretive dormitory common rooms.

You Ain't No Dancer: A great anthology with a lot of talented people.

Trubble Club, Vols 1 and 2: The first two collections of surreal, dreamlike collaborative jam comics, created weekly by me and my Chicago based comics pals, like Laura Park, Grant Reynolds, Jeremy Tinder, Aaron Renier, and the inimitable Bernie McGovern (and more).

Elephano: An anthology about an elephant magician, and his many travails. Edited by David Yoder.

I don't know about the strip clubs unfortunately.

Wow. girl, you'd better post about it when you're at a chicago/detroit convention, because I would go just to see you! All though I really do want to go to a convention. everyone always talks about them. I think there's an illustrators convention in New York that we have a field trip to with my school. that would be awesome.

I wish I lived in Portland. I would like to buy, well, pretty much everything. I've been reading your livejournal and I'd love to get a hold of some of your work. Great stuff.

Sorry I'll miss you here, I'll be in China then. Voodoo donuts for the win, and Mary's club downtown. (Been quietly enjoying the blog for a while.)

Dear Lucy,
Love ya work and would (as with above posters) love to pick up pretty much everything. But what if one lived in, say, Australia, as opposed to Portland? I'll be visiting Portland with my gal in November, so yeah, doughnuts = good, lack of Lucy Knisley = bad.

I don't suppose there's one awesome centralised location for purchasing everything online?
Thought not :(

Hopefully there will be-- Once I actually get my hands on this stuff and come back from Stumptown, I'll put a bunch of it up on my Etsy store. Alternatively, Erika (the poster collaborator) lives in Portland, and if you wanted a poster, you could probably hit her up for one while you were in town! I'm trying to get as much of this stuff to as many people who want it, but I have to wait until I actually have it all (I printed it and mailed it straight to Portland).

Ah, the Etsy option sounds cool! I'm keen to find your actual books too - but at least on our US trip we will be visiting many a cool comic shop (& bookshop) in SF, Portland, Seattle and more, so hopefully I'll get lucky.

Have fun in Portland!

Portland does, in fact, have the highest ratio of strip clubs to people of any city in America, if that's right. (I live there and I have no idea why.) In fact, a new strip club--Diablo's--just opened up in an industrial area close to where I live, and the really odd thing is that it used to be a vegan restaurant owned by the same guy. Which leads me to wonder about the buffalo wing situation--although not enough to actually go in.

I saw you

I found your site a few weeks ago, and got obsessed with your online comics, but didn't think I'll have a chance to purchase any of your published works. Today was comics festival in Hungary, and guess what I found in a hidden box?! It's not too hard to guess, just read the subject :). It's a great book, I especially love your story. I hope you can sell some in Portland too.

Oregon's state constitution has the loosest definition of what "free speech" means. (Boobs)

We hid behind our table, but I hope Portland treated you correctly lucylou. I got sick from the Comics Festival Festivities.

Les couts de l’ [url=http://www.dopimmo.com]immobilier location[/url]ancien pourraient accuser une nouvelle baisse d’au moins 10% sur les douze prochains mois, suivi de nouveaux replis de 5% en 2010 et de 3% en 2011.
Aprcs un premier repli de 3,1% en 2008, les prix de l’ [url=http://www.dopimmo.com]immobilier[/url] ancien pourraient accuser une nouvelle chute d’au moins 10% sur l’annee prochaine. Et la baisse devrait se poursuivre les annיes suivantes si l’on se fie aux scיnario les plus pessimistes avancיs par la Fnaim.
D’aprcs une יtude publiיe ce matin, la Fיdיration nationale des agents [url=http://www.dopimmo.com]immobilier[/url] rappelle en effet que la baisse s’est fortement accיlיrיe en fin d’annיe… Aprcs avoir enregistrי un recul de 2,9% au cours du 3cme trimestre, les prix des logements anciens se sont effondrיs de prcs de 6,5% au cours du seul 4cme trimestre de 2008.
La baisse des taux enclenchיe fin 2008 ne suffira donc pas r renverser la tendance et r relancer la demande r court terme. Plusieurs raisons r cela. Depuis quelques mois, les agents immobiliers constatent que les nיgociations sont de plus en plus tendues entre vendeurs et acheteurs. « Surtout, malgrי des taux qui repassent en dessous de la barre des 5%, il est r craindre que les banques ne desserrent pas facilement leurs conditions de crיdit dans les mois r venir. Pour l’heure, les exigences d’apport personnels restent toujours trcs strictes : autour de 10 r 20% en moyenne », observe Renי Pallincourt, prיsident de la Fיdיration nationale des agents immobiliers
Face r ce constat, la Fnaim prיfcre donc parier sur une stabilisation du marchי r horizon 2012. « Une nouvelle baisse d’au moins 10% est encore nיcessaire pour rיtablir la solvabilitי des mיnages et permettre de relancer le marchי [url=http://www.dopimmo.com]immobilier location[/url]» note Renי Pallincourt. Compte tenu de l’יvolution incertaine de la crise יconomique, la Fיdיration s’avance meme, pour la premicre fois, r יvoquer de nouvelles baisses de prix au cours des prochaines annיes. La Fnaim anticipe ainsi un repli de 5% en 2010 et de 3% en 2011.
