We're Still Here
Not only here, but busy busy...
We just got back from the Association of Alternative Newsmedia Convention in Detroit, where we were invited to speak on our very own comics journalism panel. Super exciting! Neither of us had done anything similar in the past, so it was a really interesting experience. We also had a great time biking around the D. That place is a trip...
Here's more info on the event and our presentation.
As usual, we've been hard at work on more stories. We just got a few done for The Progressive magazine, Echo Magazine, TruthOut(.org) and are currently working on a mini for the McCormick Foundation.
That, of course, is in addition to work on our book (which we are still on schedule for. EARLY AUGUST!)
Some of you have gotten your postcards in the mail. Some of you will be receiving yours (+haikus) very soon. If you haven't sent us your address ($10 tier only), please do. The rest of the goodies will be sent out to higher reward tiers by August.
You can still keep up with us at illuspress.com and our Twitter @TheIllPress.
