With over seventy five years of cumulative experience in the comic book industry, Klaus Janson and Howard Chaykin are all-too-well-versed in the ins and outs of making a career in our inkstained – and now, with all that digital stuff, carpal tunneled – business.
For the past few years, Klaus and Howard have been conducting an Artist’s Workshop for Marvel, offering invaluable insights, gleaned from those decades of experience, on narrative, storytelling, page design, and career management.
They’ve developed a fluid and comprehensive take on the inside game played by successful cartoonists – and a series of direct and vital techniques intended to drag newer talents out of a hobby and into a profession – without ever losing the joy all of us experience when we ply our craft.
Klaus and Howard have taken their seminar on the road to the renowned Savannah College of Art & Design, to great acclaim from students and faculty alike, and now they’re bringing a customized version of the workshop to the 2010 Baltimore Comic-Con.
On Saturday, August 28th, from 1 PM to 4 PM, Messrs. Janson and Chaykin will entertain and enlighten with a lively, spirited, and very likely prickly and opinionated dissertation, followed, from 4 PM to 5 PM, by an hour of honest dissection of the work of several lucky attendees. All class registrants will be eligible for the dissesction lottery, so bring some of your work if you want to hear from these two very honest men!
You’ll come away informed, enthusiastic, or downright annoyed-but we guarantee you won’t be bored, and that you’ll never look at comics the same way again.
To register for this very special class, please call our host store Cards, Comics, & Collectibles at 410-526-7410. The cost for this professional seminar is $75. Major credit cards will be accepted for payment. The hour of honest dissection from 4-5pm will be exciting programming available to all ticketed attendees of the Baltimore Comic-Con. Register now while space is still available!
