Leanne Franson Comicon Travel Fund

This is the campaign to help fund Leanne Franson's trip to the 2016 Clallam Bay Comicon, where she is this year's Special Guest Creator! She's coming all the way across Saskatchewan to get here, and we want to help pay her expenses.

This little comicon on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State has become something of a bucket list item for creators and fans, and it would be very important to help out our guest creator. They don't expect much but nerdy fun and fireworks - but any creative person can use a few extra bucks.

We're really looking forward to having Leanne here, and hear her share what she does and how she does it!

But she says it best: Let's let her describe herself and her wonderful career (and be sure and make it a point to stop off and see her spanking new website at http://liliane.comicgen.com !)

"Hi! I'm Leanne Franson, a children’s illustrator and creator of Liliane Bi-Dyke! I was mostly active in the heyday of DIY photocopied zines, producing 43 minicomics during the 1990s, mostly semi auto-bio tales of liliane, my bi-dyke heroine. I also contributed to countless other zines and books, some of which were collected by Slab-o-Concrete press in the UK in two trade paperbacks. In 2003 I was invited to share a table at APE in San Fran, and wrote the comics for my third trade paperback, and kept up my production momentum afterwards by producing 3 years of daily comics. The archives are at http://liliane.comicgenesis. com/archives.html

My production dropped off when I became a single mom by choice, but I continued doing a story a month for Rainbow Rumpus, an online magazine for kids with lgbt parents.

My work has appeared in such places as Gay Comics, Dyke Strippers, Anything That Loves, Action Girl, Real Girl, and several collections by Roz Warren.

I am excited to be the guest cartoonist at the 2016 Clallam Bay Comicon, and would love to share with you my propensity for bringing minimal facial features to life! Alison Bechdel once wrote: “I never cease to be amazed by the dizzying range of emotions Leanne Franson can squeeze out of a noseless face with dots for eyes”.

Join us in pushing her mastery of dots and lines!
