Austin English On A Fundraiser Party December 4 In New York (PR)
posted November 29, 2009

Here is some info about a benefit I'm setting up for this Friday:

Please join us for a fund raiser benefiting local cartoonists---Mollie Goldstrom and Nate Doyle! Both cartoonists have major new comics in the works---Goldstrom with "1883" and Doyle with "Crooked Teeth #5."

This is a benefit for upstart publisher Sweetheart books (run by me, Austin) to gather some start up funds to put out Mollie's work in the format and volume it deserves....and for Nate to self-publish the latest issue of his beloved comic.

And it'll also be a really fun party! Live music! Cheap drinks! Original art for sale! Supporting the local arts community! How could you miss something like this? Isn't this the reason you live in New York in the first place?? OK we will see you there right? OK cool!

Starts at 9pm on December 4th (that's right...the night before Desert Island/Picturebox's Brooklyn Comix Fest)! $5-10 suggested donation. Yeah, you can come for free but c'moonnnnnn....

take the L train to the jefferson stop. The party will be at:
538 Johnson Ave, Apt. #210

if you can't make it, that sucks, can still donate online:

(I'll be adding original art to this blog within a week, but it's up and ready for business as of right now!)

also: i'm moving out of new york on january 15th. if i haven't seen you in a while, I'd love for you to stop by and say hi.

See you there!
