282 BROADWAY/Cartoon HousePosted: April 19, 2013 Filed under: News 3 Comments
Hey everyone! A lot of you may have heard about this already, but DOMINO is losing our headquarters, 282 Broadway/Cartoon House (also the place that I and many other people in the arts/comics community live out of). It’s a sad situation—-so much work has been made in this apartment, and many artists/cartoonists/people-involved-in-art have called it their home over the last decade, including Lizz Hickey, Jon Vermilyea, Jesse McManus, Clara Bessijelle, Bald Eagles/Victor Cayro, Christopher Ortiz, Becca Kacanda, Jeff Ladoceur, Dave Nuss, Bill Kartalopoulos, Aidan Koch and myself, Austin English. The apartment has also been a ‘safe-house’ for cartoonists and artists visiting New York—-it would be hard to list all the people who have crashed here for a day or a week or months while working on their art.
The space also serves as the headquarters for 3 small publishers—-DOMINO, Rebus Books and Revival House. For small businesses like ours, the move will be involved and cut into our already razor-thin-margins operations. Make no mistake, we will survive and continue to thrive after this move! BUT—-DOMINO is asking for your help today by asking for one simple thing: if you’ve been considering ordering any of our books——especially the 6 books we publish, DARK TOMATO, SPIDER MONKEY, FACE MAN, DIFFICULT LOVES, SPACE BASKET or TUSEN HJARTAN STARK—-now would be a wonderful time for you to go ahead and buy them! We offer all six books together for $26 (you get TUSEN for free, plus pay no shipping). But, really, any order today helps us out with this move and lightens our load (less books, less to move)!
