Let me just say how excited we are to be participating in this year's edition of CAKE, which has become one of the more buzzed-about festivals after only one year in existence! I'll be in attendance, as will beloved, hilarious former D+Qer Jessica Campbell, so come say hi. You can find D+Q at tables 35 and 36 at the Center on Halsted (3656 N Halsted). The events of the weekend look a little like this:

Friday June 14, 9 pm
Join us for a CAKE kick-off event: a signing at Quimby's Bookstore (1854 W North Ave) with Michael DeForge, Lisa Hanawalt, and Patrick Kyle, followed by a Comic Art Battle.  Michael DeForge, Lisa Hanawalt, Patrick Kyle, and numerous other cartoonists will participate in this drawing face-off hosted by Ezra Claytan Daniels.

Then, bright and early Saturday morning, it's the main event...
