    Will Eisner Week Celebrates Graphic Novels

    WEFF_WEW2013_Poster

    Press Release:

    The Will and Ann Eisner Family Foundation is proud to announce Will Eisner Week 2013, a ten-day series of events in more than a dozen cities nationwide that celebrates graphic novels, free speech awareness, and the career and legacy of Will Eisner, one of the most innovative figures in the history of comics and graphic novels.

    Will Eisner Week’s theme this year is, “Read a Graphic Novel,” which will be the underlying message of all the events. Cities holding celebrations include New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, Seattle, and Minneapolis.

    Will Eisner Week 2013 has added significance, as it marks 35 years since the 1978 publication of Eisner’s groundbreaking graphic novel, “A Contract With God.”

    “This year, we will be having Will Eisner Week celebrations in more places than ever before,” said Will Eisner Week Organizing Committee Chair Danny Fingeroth. “The people doing the events are planning some amazing happenings that will spread the word about how cool graphic novels are, and that celebrate Will Eisner’s astonishing body of work done over a career that spanned seven decades.”

    VT – Sailor Twain Signing

    Comments Off on VT – Sailor Twain Signing

    Mark Siegel signs at The Norwich Bookstore on Thursday October 11th at 7:00 PM!

    Press Release:

    A century ago, aboard a steamboat on the Hudson, one Captain Twain rescues a wounded mermaid and hides her in his cabin to recover. How long can he keep her?  And what effect will she have on him, and the ship?  (The sighting of a mermaid is said to be bad luck.)  Sailor Twain is a nautical graphic romance — surely one of the first — a captivating sea tale charmingly rendered in charcoal.

    Though this book is Mark’s adult graphic novel debut, his children’s books have won all sorts of awards and recognition, including the Sibert Honor and the Bluebonnet. He has been serializing Sailor Twain online prior to publication, and building up a huge fanbase – the comic already has millions of page views, and has fans who have created both a Sailor Twain wine label and a Sailor Twain jewelry line!

    “I had a most engaging voyage on the doomed Lorelei, and I much enjoyed meeting young Captain Twain, not to mention the mermaid in the Hudson. This is a gripping novel with compelling characters, enhanced by the haunting, erotically charged drawings.” – John Irving

    This event, hosted in partnership with the Center for Cartoon Studies, will be held in their new facility in White River Junction. Reservations are not needed.

    VT – North Bennington Plein Air Competition

    James Gurney (Dinotopia) posts on his blog:

    The North Bennington Plein Air Competition will be held September 8-12 in North Bennington, Vermont. This first-annual event brings together an invited list of on-location painters in a lovely setting.

    There will be a quick draw, a wagon ride for artists to scout motifs, an auction, cash prizes, and various social events. Art buyers will be able to acquire some fine works in various media. I’ll be there as a judge, but I’ll be painting as well.

    I’ll also be giving two lectures:

    Thursday, September 9 at 4:00. Imaginative Realism. Behind-the-scenes view of the creation of Dinotopia and other realistic fantasies. Location: Historic Park McCullough. Geared for both artists and family audiences (bring the kids!). Book signing to follow. 802-442-5441.

    Thursday evening, September 9 at 8:00 Plein-Air Pioneers. History and modern practice of outdoor painting. Location: Deane Carriage Barn on the campus of Bennington College. Book signing to follow.

    Note: Quick-draw artists should register ASAP. Go to website for details and registration form.
