Come out and meet me at the Up! Fair this Friday and Saturday!


By Shawn Robare

Just wanted to break radio silence one more time to remind everyone that coming this Friday and Saturday I’ll be at the 1st Up! Fair!  What’s the Up! Fair you ask?  Well, I’m joining Jerzy & Anne Drozd (of Tiny Astronaut, Make Like a Tree Comics, and the Art & Story Podcast), Sara & Brian Turner (of Cricket Press and Make Like a Tree Comics), Mark Rudolph (of Control Voice Comics, the Requiem Metal Podcast, and the Art & Story Podcast), Kevin Cross (of the Art & Story Podcast, as well as being a swell freelance artist), and my wife Carrie Robare (demonals.com) in putting on one heck of an independently minded comic book and zine fair in Lexington, Kentucky.  You can get an idea of what we’re shooting for in the below comic by Sara Turner and Jerzy Drozd…

We’ve all put a good year’s worth of work into this project and we’re bursting at the seams to see it finally realized.  If you’re in the Lexington, KY area and would like to stop by and meet me and the other organizers, we’d love to see you.  Admission to the event is free to the public and we’ve got a great roster of artists and writers on hand selling their stuff as well as leading all sorts of awesome workshops (you can download a pdf of the program by right-clicking and saving here.)  I’ll see you at the Up! Fair!
