Salisa Jatuweerapong: How Do You Love The Storm?

Salisa Jatuweeapong, a third year Digital Futures major presents blown-up comic panels and process sketches from her most recent work, How Do You Love The Storm? a non-linear comic about deciding to love.

Cover art: Salisa Jatuweerapong

How Do You Love The Storm?

It’s about those summer storms in your childhood that disappear just as quickly as they come; about tornado-winds that tangle heartstrings till it’s all knotted yarn; about the hurricane’s overcast being scary, too scary, of a shadow for you to breath in. In less metaphorical terms: it’s about three teenagers on a storm-chasing road trip figuring out emotions as they go.

Comic panel : Salisa Jatuweerapong

Salisa got a lot of things she wants to do, and a lot of stories she wants to tell! Find her pretty much always yelling about these kids on Twitter (@salsaeatschips) or Instagram (@ica_agency).

On until September 30

OCAD U Zine Fair: 11th Anniversary

Zine-Fair!

Last March 13 and 14, the OCAD U Zine Fair took place at the lobby of 100 McCaul Street. This year, the event had its 11th anniversary.

The Learning Zone -as part of the OCAD University Library- has been an active space for the promotion and growth of a unique publication known as zines. The OCAD Zine Library houses and provides access to over 2500 zines and the collection is developing every year. By organizing the Zine Fair, the OCAD offers another initiative to inspire students.

11 years have passed since the first edition of the Zine Fair but the goals have remained the same. It is definitely a great opportunity to not just celebrate the creation of zines, but also to recognize and acknowledge the multiple aesthetic versions of these alternative publications. Different subjects and concepts were presented in the zines exhibited, from comics, art, fashion and politics, to sex, sexuality, and queer zines, among others.

Surrounded by music and stimulating energy the public engaged with creators/vendors. They asked questions and chatted about some techniques and formats of zines. One of the highlights of the event during all these years has been the opportunity of “Make a button”. Of course, this time it was not an exception and art lovers, creators, and the public, in general, were enchanted with the process and steps of creating their own buttons. Last but not least, it has been a tradition to create a poster in order to promote and provide an identity to the event, and this year it was designed by fourth-year student Natalie Mark.

TORO: A Solo Exhibition by Donny Nie

Image detail Toro by Donny Nie, 2019

This month, the Learning Zone Gallery presents Toro, a solo exhibition by Donny Nie showcasing recent paintings, prints and digital animation.

Donny Nie references the sensations and processes of consuming food, to embody the continuous, and subtle shaping of an individual through the accumulative effect of innocent routine. Nie’s paintings and prints in Toro underline the exhaustion and exuberance, of the overwhelming possibilities in mundane, with anxious or curious surfaces.

On through March 29
