Looks like Lovecraft Bar is becoming one of my favorite places! This Friday March 4th they're having another small festival that combines comics, music, and film! I also designed the flyer for this one and will be exhibiting again. Here are some fun-sounding names of other people who will be there: Comic art by Ninja Express and Dionisios Kavvadias, and music by Sunshiner and Bad Mary. My friend and fellow exhibitor Nadia Burgess (aka Toughspirit) will also be showing one of her films: "Black." If you've liked her other art at NYCC, MoCCA Fest, or Special Edition (which btw isn't happening this year), now's the chance to see her film work.
Comic Book Music Film Fest is 7P-11:45P 3/4. Lovecraft 50 Ave B. Here's the facebook event. Please take any train to the Delancey-Essex stop, then walk north. $5 admission and it's encouraged to get either 1 drink or food item. Every $5 entry fee goes to the Goodwill Rescue Mission, striving to end homelessness. You can rest assured your $ will go directly to feed and shelter the homeless, instead of it possibly being spent on "other" things if you just give to panhandlers. Homelessness is a huge issue in NYC, and even though I'm not sure the problem will ever be totally solved, at least we can help a little in our own way with fun fundraising events like this.
See you Friday!
We all hate getting charged with a surprise fee for anything. Sometimes there are fees we expect, but it really kicks you in the pants when there's a big random one that somehow, for some reason, you didn't see until it was too late. It's important to try to stay on top of everything, which is why I'm trying out this thing called a "weekly review," something I learned from David Allen's book "Getting Things Done" or GTD for short. I HIGHLY recommend this book to everyone, but especially artists, who often struggle with project management. Basically, the GTD method helps you to:
1. Do a "brain dump" where you write down literally every task or project you have to do. 2. Break down projects into small steps. 3. Actually DO the steps. Part of this process is the weekly review, to review all the projects and steps to make sure you're on top of things, including everything from bank accounts to comic projects to what you'll cook for dinner. I feel like I could write all day about GTD because it's helped me immensely, but more on that later.
