Attention artists, writers, and food-lovers! I am now accepting submissions for a food-based zine scheduled to debut at SPX in September!
Why a food zine?
Because I love food, and some of the best food I’ve ever had was made by fellow artists! Food is necessary for survival but also plays an important role in human connection and affection. Nothing says “I care about you” quite like making and sharing food with others.
This zine is an opportunity to share your favorite recipes and food-related memories! Everything from single-page illustrations to illustrated recipes to multi-page comics will be considered.
Some things to keep in mind when submitting:
- The finished book will be 5.5x8.5 inches.
- The book will be printed in black and white.
- Submissions can be between 1 and 6 pages.
- Please submit your files as .PSDs at 300 dpi.
The due date for submissions is August 12th! Please email your submission (and any questions you may have) to laurenmichelejordan AT gmail DOT com!
I want to accept as many artists as possible, but please remember that this is a juried zine and not all submissions will be able to be printed.
All artists who are accepted into the zine will receive a free copy!
Hand Dyed Tights for Sale!
I am re-opening commissions for hand dyed tights!
Two-color tights are $30-35 plus shipping.
Solid one-color tights are $20 plus shipping.
I accept payment through Paypal and ship via USPS. I will ship to pretty much anywhere, and will give you a shipping quote before you pay. I start on tights as soon as payment has been received. Tights are made to order, so expect one to two weeks for processing and shipping for domestic orders.
To order your custom tights, just send me an email at laurenmichelejordan AT gmail DOT com with the title “Tights” and
- your size (1, 2, 3, or 4. If you aren’t sure, you can give me your height and weight.)
- which kind of pattern you would like (solid one-color; two-color ombre, stitched, or striped)
- the colors you want!
I use opaque control-top tights made of nylon and spandex.
If you have a question about the product or a specific request (such as more than two colors or sheer tights instead of opaque) just mention it in your email and we can discuss the possibilities!
A final note: Please remember that these tights are hand dyed and one-of a kind. I inspect all tights for defects before mailing to ensure their quality, and therefore do not accept returns or offer replacements if they are damaged after shipping. I do my absolute best to match colors to customers’ specifications, but please be aware that, due to the nature of the resist and dye processes, legs may not match perfectly and colors may vary in saturation. Thanks!
Custom hand dyed tights are for sale again for the cosplay season! :)
TCAF Roundup & Embarrassing Stories! My TCAF experience, meeting friends, and me being a seriously awkward ball of pink. It’s a long one, but I think because I haven’t posted for a few weeks it was well deserved right? Bonus points if you can count how many times I say awesome in this video. Because when I was editing I lost count. I think I need to learn some new descriptive words.
Also this took me TWO DAYS to upload. Because youtube was being all weird and such. Please know how much I love you because I kept trying and trying even when things looked bleak. Look into your heart Simba. You’ve got a friend in me. etc etc
It was so nice to meet you Angelina! We really loved the restaurant you took us to :)
TCAF was really wonderful: hanging out with good friends, drawing and getting psyched about comics. So much fun stuff happened and I left wanting to draw and make more things!
Here is just a little handful of the amazing people who were at the show, you all are great!
(p.s Now I’m back in Britain, Indiegogo contributors will be hearing from me very soon.)
Becca I miss you come back
Doodles of some fun memories from TCAF! (◕‿◕✿)
I had such a fun time in Toronto. My entire experience was basically just hanging out with all the most charming and delightful people in the art world!!! I had such a wonderful time hanging out with all of you, seriously you guys, it was like Tumblr and Twitter came to Real Life and everything was beautiful.
Wish I could draw every adorable thing that happened but there were too many and oops I’m lazy
