Cohen's comic for Washington Bach Consort

Local cartoonist Andrew Cohen was recently hired by the Washington Bach Consort to write and draw "Bach to School," a comic on the composer. The consort is a professional chorus and orchestra that is arguably the nation's premiere baroque orchestra. In addition to performances for adults, the group this season performed two educational plays for free for 2,500 D.C. public elementary school students, who also received a copy of the comic.

Photo/images: Andrew in front of the boxes containing the 10,000 print run of the comic. Also posted is the cover of the book and a couple sample pages.

DC Conspiracy exhibit at DC's Martin Luther King Library

Andrew Cohen just wrote in to tell us about an upcoming exhibit.

Just wanted to let you know about an event I'm putting together with the DC Conspiracy, called Comic Book Boom, at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library.

Basically, it's meant to show off some of the comic art that the DCC does in the city, and to put a spotlight on comics more generally. It will consist of an exhibit of comic book art, a comic book reading area, and a couple of how-to workshops for making comics.

There will be more than 20 framed pieces of comic book art that people in the DCC have drawn; spinning racks and shelves filled with books put out by the group and DCC members; and workshops on July 31 and August 21, led by Conspirators.

The facebook page is at http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/event.php?eid=133445306667199&ref=mf

And the details of the show...

Trickster graphic anthology signing

There were a LOT of cartoonists at the Trickster anthology launch at Big Planet Comics yesterday. I only got to talk to a few of them, but I'm going to run a series of Chat with a Cartoonist talks over at the City Paper with them over the next month. The book looks very good - it's published by Fulcrum, a specialist in American Indian books, but a newcomer to comics. I did buy a piece of art from Jacob Warrenfeltz of Takoma Park - the story he drew was about a trickster rabbit and two buffaloes.

Trickster: Native American Tales: A Graphic Collection at Big Planet Comics in Vienna, Va., Sat., May 15, 2010 for a signing. In attendance: Matt Dembicki, Andrew Cohen, Evan Keeling, Chris Piers, Jacob Warrenfeltz, Mike Short, Jerry Carr, Rand Arrington and Scott White.
