Change of date for the November meetup

Hi everyone!

Our last meeting for the year is coming up on the 15th of November. It was meant to be a day earlier but there was a mix-up with bookings at the cafe.

Date: Sunday 15th of November
Time: 2pm to dinner
Place: Mars Hill Cafe, 331 Church St Parramatta (near the river)

Hope to see you there - our exhibition will still be up, too!

Much stuff is afoot in June!

Comikaze 09

First order of business: it's almost time for Comikaze24, where a bunch of us attempt to draw a 24-page comic in as many hours! Festivities are over the Queen's Birthday long weekend, so it's time to start figuring out where you'll be working on those pages!

Zine Workshops, click for a PDF!

If you live in Blacktown and are between the ages of 15 and 24, perhaps you would be interested in the upcoming zine workshop series at the Blacktown Arts Centre! Said workshops are being taught by zine master/baron Leigh Rigozzi, so you know they're gonna be good. The workshops run on three Saturdays, starting from June 6, from 11am to 1pm. They're free but you will need to sign up for the full program by calling Kate on 9839 6385.

Other bits: our next meetup is on the 13th of June at the Mars Hill Cafe and Supanova Sydney is from the 26th to the 28th of June. Crazy things are happening at Creative Sydney in the next couple of weeks. If you aren't a member of Comics Lifestyle or We Make Zines yet, you should go take a look!

Meetup dates for 2008!

That's right, we aren't dead! Our meetups for the rest of the year are booked, so rock up if you can on any or all of the following dates:

Sunday 9 March
Sunday 20 April
Sunday 18 May
Sunday 15 June

Sunday 21 September
Sunday 12 October
Sunday 16 November

As always, meetups are held upstairs at the Mars Hill Cafe, 331 Church Street, Parramatta from 2pm onwards.

We're going for Sundays this year to ensure that anyone who drives can park for free; wherever possible I have also tried not to clash with local conventions or events. See you on the 9th of March!

August meetup this weekend

It's time for the usual (late) reminder - this month's meetup is this Saturday the 25th of August. We'll be upstairs downstairs at the Mars Hill Cafe, 331 Church Street, Parramatta from 2pm onwards. See you there!

ETA: There's actually a band competition happening that day, so we'll probably be downstairs! Don't walk right past us, y'hear?!

July meetup reminder

Sorry about the late reminder this month - the July meetup is tomorrow (28 July) at 2pm at the Mars Hill Cafe. We'll be sorting out our table arrangements for Supanova at this meetup, as well as transport for SMASH!, payment for Under The Blue Moon and registration for at least another three zine fairs, so we've got plenty to talk about already...!

If you're an artist working in the Western Sydney area, you still have a few days left to submit your details to the Artfiles directory. Inclusion in the directory is free!



SMASH!, the Sydney Manga and Anime Show, will be held at the UNSW Roundhouse on 18 August 2007. A group of Hayase! regulars will have tables in the Artist Circle, so if you're attending the event please drop by and say hi!

A number of art competitions will also be held on the day, the majority of which are sponsored by Wacom. Check out the SMASH! website for more details.

Confirmed meeting dates, projects page

Lastly, don't forget to add your (and your comics') info to the wiki if it isn't already there!
