CanZine West 2012

November 17, CanZine West hits Vancouver at the spacious W2 building in Gastown! For an admission price of only $5, visitors can meet and browse through dozens of goods by indie zine, comics, art and craftmakers for a one-of-a-kind indie experience! The admission price also buys you a copy of the much-lauded Broken Pencil Magazine (mmm....magazine!), and lets you participate in panels, talks and a giant drawing project hosted by Vancouver's own Alex Stursburg and Brennan Kelly. With easy walking access to skytrain, downtown buses, helicopter and boat, CanZine 2012 is going to be one of the most exciting shows to hit Vancouver since VanCAF back in May! Come out, show your support, and check out what your friendly neighborhood zinesters have been doing while locked away in their apartments and lofts!

Here's some of the highlights from the W2 Community Media Arts website:

1-7pm: Zine Fair – Over 50 of Vancouver and BC’s best zines and underground
1-7pm: Get in Where You Fit In – A Participatory Drawing Show with curators Alex
Stursberg and Brennan Kelly.
2pm1-2 Punch Book Pitch – Live on our main stage in front of a crowing crowd, you get two minutes to pitch your book to our panel of judges. They get one minute each to tell you why you’ll never get published in a million, billion years, or why they want to see your manuscript in their inbox ASAP.
4:30 Dissent Chill: The Chill Against Political Dissent in Art
As the conservative government threatens art grants and rejects funding for artistic
projects and centres that support projects it sees as anti-government or “glorify[ing]
terrorism,” are artists and art centres afraid to create controversial works for fear of losing
funding? Our panelists will discuss the perceptions and realities surrounding this topic.
With Marcus Youssef, Charlie Demes, and Shannon Rupp. Moderated by Derrick O’Keefe
6pm: W2 Real Vancouver Writers Series at Canzine

Oh but wait, there's more!

Come visit me at CanZine and I will be giving away FREE SKETCH CARDS drawn while you wait or while you browse! One per person please!

I will also be giving away coupons for FREE DOWNLOADS of my Digital Comics!

Additionally, if you have zines or comics you would like me to review for Peaches and Zines Zine Reviews and/or Syndicated Zine Reviews, please bring them by and tell me about your work!
