CAKE was incredible. Hello, new friends from across the globe; hopefully we will be visiting soon! Here’s a photo of Lyra Hill and Lale Westvind, table-mates, who are currently working on the Brain Frame 13 (2nd Anniversary) poster. The poster will feature two strong women engaged in battle, for obvious reasons.

The Brain Frame store has been updated! Poster collaborations with Aaron Renier (Brain Frame 11) and Clay Hickson (Brain Frame 12) are now available online, as well as a lot of other stuff by Lyra Hill, the woman behind Brain Frame, who is writing this right now in the third person. This is a print of Mr. Square at the Pit of Despair, modeled by exclusive hand model Emma Rand.
CAKE FRAME, a hybrid fundraiser event for the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo (CAKE) organized by the performative comix reading series BRAIN FRAME, was a lot of fun and a great success. In between comix performances from Andy Burkholder, Alyssa Herlocher, Jeremy Pettis and Paul Nudd, our host Lyra Hill auctioned off dozens of original artworks by Chicago cartoonists. Emma Rand, Brain Frame’s astronomically talented intern, played Vanna White while musicians Stephen Ptácek and Alex Inglizian improvised accompaniment, on April 12th, 2013.

Lyra Hill ate a banana to introduce her new comic Banana Glove Game, about a small town distraction gone horribly wrong, scored by Brain Frame mainstay Tyson Torstenson and illustrated during the performance by three analog slide projectors building panels color by color at Brain Frame 10 on January 18th, 2013.
Lyra Hill performed the first half of her upcoming comic Recent Days, an autobiographical descent into self-destruction and debauchery, with the help of friends mostly playing themselves, including: Ross Meckfessel, Sara Drake, Bryan Wendorf, Ben Bertin, Orla McHardy, Michael Morrill, Gina Wynbrandt, Jeremy Tinder, and Ziyuan Wang; Tyson Torstensen, who also scored the downtime between performances, built a live soundtrack of spacey synth music and frightening sound effects; this herculean effort debuted at Brain Frame 7 on July 28th, 2012, and will conclude at Brain Frame 10, in January, 2013.
