YEARBOOK PRESALES ARE LIVE!
Brain Frame is a pivotal happening in Chicago’s storied underground art history. Brain Frame exploded onto the scene on July 28th, 2011, and has continued to blow minds and expand the very definition of comics. To audiences, Brain Frame is an original, undefinable but always impactful happening. It is also a place where bonds form between artists, leading to collaborations and mutual support in what can be an isolated and competitive medium.
Our third anniversary and final show, this August, is kicking off with the launch of the Brain Frame Yearbook! This book is a true collector’s item, a gold embossed leatherette compendium of every unforgettable Brain Frame event, stuffed with portraits, photos, memories, and original content from performers and audience members: comics, essays, flip-page animations, as well as jokes, games, and the winners of the Brain Frame Superlatives.
Our all-volunteer Yearbook Club is working hard to collect all these memories, and we need your help! To ensure that this richly illustrated, cleverly handsome tome is produced in time for the show, Brain Frame needs to raise $7,779 by July 1st. This will cover the cost of 300 books, each 160 pages, half color, half black and white, full bleed, hard bound, and foil embossed at a final cost of $25.93 per book. Our Brain Frame ethos of embracing risk is so strong that each book will be on sale for only $25! Keep your $0.93, keep the memories, and call us crazy. We love that.
Come to CAKE this Saturday or Sunday! I’ll be selling these fresh shirts, buttons!, “Fried Cool-Aid” will debut, and I’m very excited to see my CAKE banner design all huge and shit!
Wonder where CAKE got our postcards and posters printed? PS Print is a sponsor to CAKE in 2014 and have a plant in Des Plaines IL. The lovely Carrie Vinarsky artwork got the deluxe treatment that you saw posted in cool comic and coffee shops all over town. We thank them for supporting the show!
