I’m headed down to East Brunswick, New Jersey this weekend for my exciting guest appearance at MangaNEXT! I’m really looking forward this show, and getting a chance to catch up with my buddy Lea Hernandez, manga creator extraordinaire.
I also hear rumors that there will be another Super Art Fight going on! Breaking News UPDATE! I will be IN the Super Art Fight!
I’ll also be heading up two panels, too!
The Importance of Setting in Storytelling: Friday 8:00-9:30pm – Could also be called “How I use backgrounds in my comics.” I’ll be going over why setting and using backgrounds can produce a powerful effect in storytelling, and the techniques I use to create all these crazy backgrounds here in Paradigm Shift.
SUPER ART FIGHT! Saturday, 12:30-1:30pm – BE THERE!
The Business of Art & Comics: Saturday 4:00-5:30pm – I’ve been making a living as a working artist for over 10 years now, and after so long in the trenches you’re bound to pick up a thing or three on how to survive. I’ll be covering the stuff they didn’t teach you in art school on how to make it out here in the cold, indifferent Real Worldâ„˘, and how you can make it, too!
So, come on out and join in the fun. It’s Halloween, so you never know what might happen. Mwu ha ha ha ha!
