Bookish Beast Contributor Bio: Tyler Cohen

In case you were wondering what other awesome work you have to look forward to !!THIS SUNDAY!!— we present: 

Tyler Cohen!


Tyler is a cartoonist who works with multiple voices: surrealism, true vignettes around being the feminist mom of a young daughter, and journalistic bits about language.


All these voices weave together in the Primahood books to offer both an emotional journey and an engagement with questions as to what is female.


Tyler will be at Bookish Beasts with the Primahood books and more awesome feminist surreal art, comics and zines. If you cannot make it, you can also find more of her work at

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday

Next Sunday at CSC’s Bookish Beasts, Ajuan Mance will be selling prints and zines.

I am so glad Ajuan Mance will be joining us again. Visual artist, arts organizer *and* English professor at Mills College this is what she say about her drawing series:

1001 Black Men is a series of drawings inspired by the faces I see in Oakland every day, and by my memories of the family, friends, and neighbors I grew up with out east.  In the poem “Beautiful Black Men,” Nikki Giovanni describes her love for all types of Black men, explaining that, for her, they represent “the same old danger/but a brand new pleasure.” In this series of drawings, I push past entrenched stereotypes to create images of Black men that reflect the wonderful complexity of African American lives–our history so deeply embedded in our present, our celebrations so often tempered by grief and, yes, the pleasure and danger we find in so many of the people, places, and activities that give us joy.

Check out More of her work here and those of you who live too far to come to Bookish, she has an online store!

With Wondercon not in San Francisco this year there is no great comics
events happening in April. Wouldn’t it be great to have a local comics
event that was as unique as San Francisco? The Center for Sex &
Culture is a fantastic multi-use space that is perfect for a small
gathering of local artists whose works need to be celebrated for their
stance outside the mainstream.

Bookish Beasts is a one day zine fest for the creators of art, books
and comics featuring sex, sexuality, gender and erotica. We want to
give you the opportunity to exhibit your works, and connect with local
readers who love and collect adult material.

This is a not for profit event that is free to the public. Although we
live to support local artists we will need some help from you to make
this happen. We are asking for $20 to split an 8’ table with chairs. You will be
responsible for cashiering your own sales and all profits are your
own. The Center has lots of chairs but will need to rent tables and
promote the event. If this sounds like a great event that you want to
get involved with please confirm right away.

The event is one day. April 14th from noon to 6pm. There will be some
presentations and workshops following.

CSC provides judgment-free education, cultural events, a library/media
archive, and other resources to audiences across the sexual and gender
spectrum; and to research and disseminate factual information, framing
and informing issues of public policy and public health. Please consider
dornating copies of your work to the library and helping spread the word
about this great resource. All of CSC Library books are searchable through
Goodreads and CSC’s Zineography, along with their growing zine catalog/database.

If interested in participating or for more information contact us.

If interested in partcipating in the CSC Zineography Community Cataloging Project, email the library at

We look forward to hearing from you,
