    Natalie Nourigat Joins the CBLDF’s Fight for Comics’ First Amendment Rights

    Natalie Nourigat ComicsPeriscope Studios artist Natalie Nourigat is the newest great addition to our Fourth Annual SDCC Autograph Card/CBLDF Auction event! Nourigat, whose autobiographical book, Between Gears, came out in February, will donate an original sketch to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund’s annual auction at San Diego Comic-Con.

    The CBLDF has provided crucial legal support to comic book retailers, publishers, creators, and even fans since 1986. TFAW is proud to have helped raise more than $75,000 for the CBLDF in the past three years. Help support the First Amendment Rights of the comics community and fight censorship by joining today!

    Nourigat’s next published work, My Boyfriend Is a Monster Vol. 6, is expected in October from Lerner Publishing Group. Her manga-influenced style is expressive and sweet–look for a preview of her original sketch on this blog!

    You can bid on each of these pieces at SDCC this year, but wait–there’s more! TFAW will be turning every sketch from this event into free, limited-edition autograph cards that we will be distributing at SDCC this year. Stop by booth #5625 to pick up your set, and make sure to check out the CBLDF Auction July 14 at San Diego Comic-Con!

    TFAW Hosts Drink & Draw Like a Lady: West April 15

    Girl ComicsDrink & Draw Like a Lady returns to Portland for a second year Friday, April 15 at the Hollywood Things From Another World TFAW at 4133 NE Sandy Blvd., Portland, OR from 8:00 p.m. to midnight.

    This is a very special women-only event! All ladies–whether they create comics, love comics, or just want to learn more about them–are invited to take part in some female positivity, as well as complimentary hors de’oeurves, beer, and wine (with valid I.D.).

    Founded in 2009 by Hope Larson as a pre-event for MoCCA (a fundraiser for the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art) and organized this year by Lucy Knisley, Drink & Draw Like a Lady is an excellent opportunity for women to sketch, socialize with the local comics community, and network. Do you have minicomics and business cards to share? Bring ’em! Are you new to comics and want to get the perspective of other females? This is the perfect event for you.

    Periscope Studio artists Cat Farris and Natalie “Tally” Nourigat are spearheading the West Coast edition this year. “There are so many incredible female creators, editors, and fans of comics in Portland,” said Farris. “It’s the perfect place for an event like this–we were really happy about the energy it generated last year.”

    “I grew up reading comics in the ’80s and ’90s,” said TFAW Marketing Manager Elisabeth Forsythe, “but there wasn’t really a female support system for me back then. I’m so happy there are so many women in comics today, and that TFAW can host an event of this stature.”

    Come on down April 15 and get to know the women of comics! RSVP at the Facebook event. The Hollywood Things From Another World is conveniently located near TriMet’s Hollywood Transit Center: plan your trip online. Additional questions? Email Cat Farris.
