O HAI RGP I'M GLAD YR BACK

Friday, May 11, 2012


My friends host a party every month in which they write letters of solidarity to political prisoners. This month is CeCe McDonald’s birthday, so I made her this birthday card. If you haven't heard about her case, CeCe is a black transwoman who survived a hate crime by white supremacists, during which she actually stabbed and killed her attacker. (Click through the photo to read more.) Stay strong, stay beautiful CeCe. <3


Two weeks ago was the Pioneer Valley Zinefest! Kim and I had our own table, where we sold our wares. We met some loooovely folks in Western Mass, where we read our work and bartered with other zinesters for their fine writing and DIY punk swag. I put up some new patches on the Big Cartel, and also my new zine on Latin@ identity called Malcriada (sent upon personal request). I'm really into writing prose right now, but as you can see from the top photo I'm still rocking the wacky caricatures.

Big Cartel account!

So after fighting with PayPal over payments made for my zines-- apparently they need ebay to confirm that I am in fact sending you the zines before they give me the $$$-- I made a Big Cartel account! Here you can buy RGP and other hard copies of my comics. I might do posters soon, too.

Riot Grrrl Problems: the zine

RGP zine cover by suzy_ex
I was getting a lot of questions about RGP from people interested in purchasing it-- and it did so well at my art show that I figured I would print more and sell them online for $4. If you're interested in buying it, please leave me a comment with your email and I'll get back to you. Payments can made via Paypal through the "Donate" button on the right side of my blog. This is first issue of what I hope will be many more to come!

Love,
Suzy X

The yente



Having a facebook is seriously the most annoying thing ever. Everyone in my family has one, they’ve found me, and they’ve pressured me to add relatives I don’t even like. Recently, my Nana’s Jewish best friend/casino buddy in Miami— aka the “yente” who sends me chain letters with sparkly kitten gifs— found me on facebook and got upset that I didn’t add her.

Why don't I just get rid of my internet presence and just keep my cartoon alias quietly on Blogger and Tumblr? Yeah, that's it. I'll do just that.

I love really posi fan mail from really posi folks.

A wonderful person sent me this email today about my wonky paypal button, but really made me feel incredibly giddy:


paypal link on your blog not working?

it may just be my poor excuse for a laptop playing up but i am unable to click through to your paypal account via the link on your blogspot. what's the e-mail address it's linked to? i cannot pledge much but wanted to send what little i have (which will otherwise be squandered on a badly recorded hardcore band's tape or keychain depending on where the internet takes me next).

i hang out with my best friend's 12 year old sister regularly and, at her request, have slowly been exposing her to bands that have helped shape my character and explaining the reasons why.

i find, when talking about riot grrrl bands especially, your comics are a great tool to go alongside with this without confusing her with theory and big words, leaving room for her to draw her own conclusions and have fun while doing so (comics are cool!). so thank you for that. i'm bring her along to her first march tomorrow (slutwalk) and she has printed out your victim blaming comic and stuck it onto her banner :)


My response:

Hi ___!

Your message actually had me tear up a bit. I'm really, really happy that you think my work has made a difference. I am a big fan of making feminism more accessible, especially to young folks. I hope that both of you have a fuckin' rad time at Slutwalk, and I totally appreciate any kind of help you can offer! I realize the donate button on my site was actually locked, but I unlocked it and tested it so it should work now.

Thank you so much for your kind words. They really mean a lot to me. <3

In solidarity,
Suzy X

MY THESIS IS DONE




Leave me a message if you want access to the download-- I'm being uber-selective about who gets to see it.

At last, I get my life back. Well, at least after my three final papers. Graduation can't come soon enough.

A thank you card to my thesis advisor, Ben Katchor, who always complains that I focus too much on my characters instead of the settings

Greeting Card for Ben Katchor- pg1

I'm gonna miss that guy.
