Faithful blog readers, welcome back to another episode of COUNT DOWN TO SPX! There are only eight days left until I'm standing behind a table, covered in smiles and nervous sweat, mentally preparing myself to sell my work to the public. Oh yeah, and goofin' around with buds. Did I mention where I'll be tabling? In case you missed it, I'm at table N12 which is here:
As promised, here is another update about what I've been up to as we get closer to the convention.
Part of this summer, I was invited to teach along side the one and only Jon Chad at The Center for Cartoon Studies. We did one workshop and boy-howdy was that an incredible time.
We ran a workshop called Create Comics and the basis behind it is that you have a group of students that will build their comic skills over the course of a week. Their final project is a collective storytelling comic. Everyone helps world build, write, draw, and assemble a final comic. They did such a good job on this book and I had such a blast meeting new colleagues and teaching side by side with such a great pal.
All of the faculty and TAs working hard on drawing the cover of the book.
EPIC movie night with the one and only Steve Bissette. Golly I miss going to those!
Oh yeah, and I got to see a bunch of my classmates who ended up being in town. I love them. And miss them. And if they're reading this, I hope they are feeling the same way when they look at this picture.
I think on that sentimental note, I'll leave for today. Tomorrow (Saturday) Kyle and I are assembling around 250 books so it'll be quite a post!
