See you at Phoenix Comic Con today! I packed loads of goodies for you all, so we should have a great weekend!
Sequential Smarts - the best thing ever.
Inspired by the illustrative world of Gary Baseman as explored in the exhibition Gary Baseman: The Door Is Always Open, attend this panel of graphic novelists as they discuss the conceptual underpinning of contemporary graphic storytelling and L.A.’s central place in the world of the graphic novel.
Like Gary Baseman, many graphic novelists use illustration to depict fantastic worlds of their own making. Panelists Sina Grace (Not My Bag and Li’l Depressed Boy), Hope Larson (A Wrinkle in Time, Who Is AC?), Nick Thorburn (author of What a Gas and lead singer of the band Islands), and Malachi Ward(Expansion, Utu, and Ritual) discuss their work and the world of the graphic novel. A Q&A and book signing follow the program.
Sponsored by The Skirball Cultural Center, and The Secret Headquarters, this is going to be an event to remember. All attendees get a limited edition print of the image above (signed by all four panelists).
Wednesday, May 8, 8:00 p.m.

Thanks to Kevin Sonnichsen, I now have #baghags.
In the two weeks this book has been out on the stands and available for download, I have been overwhelmed with kind words and support… I’ve also been overwhelmed with photos of people putting the book next to their face. I didn’t even ask, it just turned into a thing.
Keep making me feel special folks, I’m gonna need it for the second leg of this tour.
