Comments Off on WA – Graphic Novel Panel 2014
Kick off 2014 with the fourth annual Graphic Novel Panel, held by our friends at the Seattle Graphics Arts Guild! Every year, it just gets better and better, and here’s what you can expect on Saturday, January 25th:
From 10:00 AM to Noon, the amazing Megan Kelso will lead a workshop on “Comics for Writers” — This workshop is for writers who are interested in comics and want to dip their toe in but who may be self-conscious about their drawing skills. Perfect! Megan will lead the class in both drawing and writing exercises — all drawing abilities are welcome!
The great David Lasky will also teach a workshop on “How to Make Your Own Mini-Comic”! He will guide you in booklet-making, the grammar of comics, and simple character design. Supplies and basic drawing tips will be provided. Drawing skills are helpful, but not necessary; the only prerequisite is a desire to communicate through the medium of comics.
Later that afternoon at 1:00 PM, our own Kristy Valenti will be on the Graphic Novel Panel, alongside Matthew Southworth, Crystal M. Rollins, Quenton Shaw, Travis Bundy, and moderator Mark Monlux. How do you get started? What are the essential tools? How do you build a career in today’s publishing climate? These are just some of the questions they’ll explore in this panel! (And check out a great chat with Kristy here!)
And then join us for the after-party at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery from 4:30-6:00 PM. Books will be available for purchase and signing by the artists!
This event is open to the public, and you can get your tickets here for either the class, the panel, or the whole shebang! Tickets are not needed to attend the after-party.
