I was very happy to be a part of a cool even this past Sunday - The ACT-I-VATE Live Comix reading at the DUMBO Arts Fest Digital Summit.
Simon Fraser started things off with a reading from Lily MacKenzie, and donned a purple wig to channel his avatar, Cosmo.
Graffiti artist/sculptor Carlos 'Mare 139' Rodriguez read from my own CulturePOP Photocomic profile on him.
Jeff Newelt, ACT-I-VATE Minister of Hype used his famous Havey Pekar impression to read from the late writer's Next-Door Neighbor piece, illustrated by Rick Veitch.
Jeff also read another Harvey piece, from SMITH Mag's The Pekar Project, edited by Jeff and drawn by Sean Pryor.
The event closed with a reading of Dean's Billy Dogma story from The ACT-I-VATE Primer. Assisting Dean were Jeff Newelt and Natalie Kim.
Thanks to Noah Norman for his help in making this a successful event.
