O HORVATH WEBLOG
When The Cruising Diaries arrived yesterday, I meant to just flip through it and read maybe one entry. However, once I opened it I couldn’t put it down until I had finished the entire damn thing. The book is Brontez Purnell’s very charming and thoroughly detailed memoir of random hook-ups and one-night stands. Each entry is outrageously illustrated by the brilliant Janelle Hessig. Janelle’s raunchy, funny drawings take the prose to another level. Together, Purnell and Hessig are a filthy, punk Thompson and Steadman. This book is absolutely hilarious! Get it from Gimmeaction.com.
me & brontez will be co-writing an advice column in the next SCAM magazine!
1) I bought this book without even finishing the blurb because UM DREAM TEAM and 2) a Jacob, Brontez and Erick collab is the best news I’ve heard all day
soooo stoked to be debuting this dream scheme/ sticker vending machine at RIPExpo next week! generously lent to me by Jacob, this bright red baby will be stuffed full of new, full-color vinyl stickers by power sibs MEG and IVY POWERS, MIMI CHRZANOWSKI, INES ESTRADA, MICKEY Z, PEPPER AMES and a bunch of other friends B^) here’s a preev of five outta nine designs- i was trying to keep them under wraps but i got too excited…. after RIPE it’ll be taking up residence in a PVD business, with rotating seasonal designs- more on that later….

Magickal / Realism: Sci-fi, Magic, Mystery, and Permeable Binaries
This panel centers around exploring ideas of personal points of view and ways of describing spaces, memory, time, sex, gender, race, and trauma, with work that is considered fantastical, sci-fi/speculative, or magical realist. How is artmaking magickal? How are these artists making spaces in their work that challenges, diverges from, and/or ignores what colonialist, white supremacist ideas of what objective reality or capital-L Literature are?
With Alabaster, Alex Smith, Inés Estrada, Maggie Eighteen, O Horvath, Rasheedah Phillips, moderated by Annie Mok
More Fit Than Print: Webcomics
For decades comic strips were a driving and competitive force for driving newspaper sales. Now in the 21st century, both traditional comic strips and newspapers are decaying and web news and entertainment has become a dominant force. What is the inspiration, evolution and experience like publishing online and how does one’s accessibility to their audience effect their work? What are the challenges of creating/maintaining a public persona? Are there different challenges when your readership is global? What’s the next phase of evolution for webcomics and how will that affect one’s work?
With KC Green, Kevin Czapiewski, Sara Goetter, Tony Breed, moderated by Stefen Blitz

So jazzed for our Magickal / Realism panel! The topic is dear to my heart and is born partially out of conversations I had with Eighteen about these ideas, and also some talk along the same lines at our panel with Alex & Rasheedah at our Vox Populi Gallery event for Screentests. <3
I have only ever been on panels before talking about Dragonball Z, and cyborgs/androids/robots/jinzouningen in anime b4……….. next weekend.
