Parsons Mini-Comics Mini-Workshop

Apr 24th, 2009

Here is something that I’m doing tomorrow. Sorry, only open to Parsons Illustration students.

What: Mini Mini-Comics Workshop!
When: Saturday, April 25 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Where: 8th Floor Illustration Library, 2 W. 13th
Who: Jillian Tamaki and YOU!

Come learn about comic conventions, the comics industry, self-publishing, and constructing your own zines, artbooks, and mini-comics. A great introduction to those considering submitting work to this year’s MoCCA Festival! Some people think these conventions are only about comic-comics (pictures in panels), but Jillian has amassed a huge collection of books at these things that run the whole gamut of arty, comic-y, narrative, non-narrative, silkscreen, photocopied, etc. etc. She will also talk about her experiences making her first mini-comic and how she did it SOOO wrong. She’ll talk about how to construct these things in a non-painful way. Plus, she’ll answer any other comics industry related questions!

Don’t miss this truly great opportunity to meet with Jillian and get the benefit of her experiences!
