In a queer collusion between comics, cripness and creativity these two artists will offer an intimate showcase of their work and invite the audience to engage and exchange in a conversation about community and collective care, race, disability justice and the medical industrial complex through the portals of poetry, textiles and graphic art.
Seattle cartoonist and author E.T. Russian will give a visual reading of comics, poems, and essay excerpts from The Ring of Fire Anthology and recent works.
Toronto poet mel g campbell will present poetry, comics/zines, and share some of their fibre art creations and practice.

My video comics were screened at Northwest Film Festival during the Local Sightings Comix Fair along with Bezango, WA, a new documentary about the Seattle comics scene.
