The season of the witch may be behind us, but …oh, who are we kidding, it’s always the season of the witch. October or not, now is the perfect time to get your grubby little spell slingers on the latest publication from Chidrawgo and Outlet Comics: Chidrawgo’s Spell Book! This book features spells, recipes, communion, iconography, and games from some truly rad Chicago-based or Chicago-adjacent witches and artists. Stepping it up from their previous zines, this book features hand-stamped covers, hand-sewn binding, and hand-cut deckled edged pages. Needless to say, lots of hands were involved in the making of this magical artifact.
Get your copy today by reaching out directly to Chidrawgo at firstname.lastname@example.org. Prices are $10, plus $2 shipping. You can also pick it up at these Chicago stores: Alley Cat Comics, Quimby’s Bookstore, Chicago Comics, Graham Crackers Comics of Lakeview, and Malliway Bros. Spells, Charms, & Potions.
Chidrawgo is a Chicago’s highest rated formerly-basement-but-now-on-Zoom drawing event. They currently host super chill and informal online events that carve out time for and encourage artists to do what they love: make art. They also put out some pretty dang good publications at least a couple times a year. During non-COVID times they host mini-cons where folks can set up shop and sell their beautiful creations. Make sure to follow them on Instagram @chidrawgo or join the discussion with other artists in their Chidrawgo Social Facebook group.
