Nine Worlds is *this weekend*, and after all the really lovely comments I heard flying around about last year’s, I’m excited to be going!
I’ll be doing a few panels, so here’s where you can find me (and listen to me hopefully sound vaguely like I know what I’m talking about):
-How To Break Into Comics – But Seriously, How? // Room 11 // 1:30pm
The requisite how-to-break-in comics panel, we’ll hopefully have some good discussion on some nice chewy, practical stuff, and hey, what does ‘making it’ even look like to different people? I don’t think there’s just one route to go within comics, even professionally, so let’s chat!
-Representative Drawing for Graphic Narrative – How to draw the comics that look like you // Connaught A // 3:15pm
Life drawing session, whee! I think I’ll just be floating around helping out, so if there’s any drawing stuff you want to ask me about, this is a good time!
-Show, Don’t Tell: Wordless Comics – Why make wordless comics? What do they represent? // Connaught A // 10:00am
I’ll be here in capacity as a person-who-sometimes-makes-wordless-comics. I love them.
-NaNoSessionMo – Write a novel in 1 hour, 15 minutes! // Royal A // 1:30pm
Come and help write a whole novel in 75 minutes! Sounds like ill-advised fun! (It does actually. I think you should go!) I’ll be there sketching a cover for whatever you lot come up with, in the same amount of time. I definitely got the easy job here.
-Magical Girls 4eva – The mystical feminine, from cave walls to Comixology // Connaught A // 3:15pm
I hope the many holes in my magical girl history don’t show up too much here. I’m on this one as someone drawing from this feminine-mystical-kitsch-awesome well in my work, and noticing a ton (a TON) of my peers doing the same. (See also: My slowly ongoing Blood and Roses illustration series)
The rest of the time I’ll be floating around (not literally). See you there!
