three awesome projects to support!!

There have been a lot of really awesome art projects happening lately.

Firstly, our good friend Nicole Georges did a zine for The Dill Pickle Club’s Oregon History Comics Series. Her piece is about the Vanport Floods, which my grandmother actually survived. She was crotchety and not very affectionate, but I think women were pretty constrained back then and it was very hard for her in that place in time. I’m going to read it and think of her with complex feelings. You can buy it online here. I just bought mine today.

The second really cool project is that Portland’s own Aubrey Bernier-Clark is directing chapter 3 in the live-action version of Michelle Tea’s Valencia. Talented filmmakers all over the country are doing different chapters with different actors, and it is just such a cool concept. Aubrey has a Kickstarter going to help fund this — $25 gets you a DVD of the finished product.

AND FINALLY, Homoground has just 12 days left on their Feminist Playing Cards Kickstarter. These are playing cards of feminist musicians, drawn by feminist artists. What an awesome project!! I don’t really play games with cards (I’m more of a Ticket to Ride / D&D kind of girl), but I want.

About candise

Books and bikes, Zelda and bass guitars. I want to have some sweet conversations about social constructs, -isms and deconstruction of the media.
