Chips and dip.

10 years or so ago, my friends and I made a book of drawings of people we love and people we hate. We made a 2-disc album of songs about those people and had a listening party with those on the “friends” list. It was so much fun.

Now, 10 years later, we’re doing it again. Between us, we’ve recorded 30 songs, and we’re all meeting up in our former home of Iowa City next weekend. Here is the cover art I made for the new album. I can’t wait to see everybody.

Working on a comic about performing with the Sackley puppet for the Brainframe yearbook… Forgot to ink his main assets.

This is CAKE’s third festival, but it’s the first time we have to say goodbye to organizers.  Grace Tran and Edie Fake are stepping down from organizing CAKE, and are both moving away from Chicago.  The remaining organizers would like to take the opportunity to give the biggest thank you to Grace & Edie.

When the call for dedicated organizers went out, Grace jumped in headfirst and enthusiastically grabbed the reins of logistical operations. All well-reasoned decisions from CAKE should be attributed to Grace.

It is due to Edie’s gregarious nature that CAKE exists at all. It was Edie who successfully wrangled Chicago comics artists (who usually like to hide in dark places and draw by themselves) to come to early meetings to lay the groundwork for CAKE. Edie’s devotion to creating unique programming also helped mould the feel for our festival.  


We’re totally bummed Grace & Edie will no longer be organizers for CAKE, but we feel incredibly lucky to have been able to work so closely with them for several years, and wish them great luck with their new exciting new adventures!

CAKE was a blast! Can’t wait for next year!
