This year’s Drink and Draw Like a Lady will be held on Friday April 4th starting at 7 pm. We’re happy to say that The Productive co-working space is hosting us again this year. They are located at 40 W. 38th St. (between 5th and 6th Ave) on the 5th Floor (there is an elevator).
All ages are welcome, 21+ to drink. Bring your mini comics, business cards, sketchbooks and your love of comics. Ladies only please!
We’re thrilled to be sponsored in part this year by Work Made for Hire, a Portland based company helping artists and freelancers protect their rights and get paid fairly for the work they do. Check out their services!
The 2014 flyer was designed by the wonderful Carey Pietsch!
A small group of us organize Drink and Draw Like a Lady. Thank you to everyone who has already donated via the PayPal button on the main DDLL Tumblr page! We will also have a tip jar at the party if you prefer to throw in a few bucks that way. If you want to bring food or beverages instead, those are also welcome. There will be DDLL button incentives available at the party for those who donate!
Can’t wait to see everyone. Please spread the word!

In a recent blog post, Shelly Smith of NYPL’s Preservation Division describes how we keep the original Winnie-the-Pooh teddy bear that once belonged to Christopher Robin Milne, son of A. A. Milne, and the basis for the character Christopher Robin in the beloved Winnie-the-Pooh stories, safe and well tended.
You can currently find Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends on display in the exhibit The ABC of It: Why Children’s Books Matter, which has recently been extended to September 7, 2014 due to popular demand.

Happy World Book Day!
As the old saying goes, World Book Day: Keep watching X-Files on Netflix, that pile of unread books are your night stand is certainly judging you.
That’s a thing people say, right?

Def Jam’s Bill “Eye Jammie” Adler tossed me a generous blurb about HHFT that we’re publishing with our Free Comic Book Day edition.

Ed Piskor broke it down at BKBF this past fall, and we’re excited about his next volume of HIP HOP FAMILY TREE coming out. This blurb says it all…
