A Certain Fancy

Sep 20th, 2010

“He was a hard-working, capable man who did not drink and was not without a certain fancy and feeling for the form, but was nevertheless an atrocious tailor. His work was ruined by hesitation. The idea that his cut was not fashionable enough made him alter everything half a dozen times, walk all the way to town simply to study the dandies, and in the end dress us in suits that even a caricaturist would have called outré and grotesque.” -Anton Chekov, The Privy Councilor, 1886

A few programming notes:

♬ I was recently interviewed for Canadian Art magazine on the topic of comics. Nice little intro piece that presents the possibilities of the medium. Canadian Art is a great magazine, by the way. ‘Had a subscription for many years.

♪ Next weekend I will be at the Brooklyn Book Festival, signing Indoor Voice ( D&Q booth 1.30-3.30PM) and participating on a panel. So if you’re in NYC and not at SPX, come say hi.

Comics and Form: Is the Medium Still the Message? Do comics change when they are released from their traditional print medium? And how? Creators, publishers and developers will combine to discuss the expanding boundaries of the comics format. Robert Berry (Ulysses Seen), Ben Katchor (Julius Knipl: Real Estate Photographer), Jillian Tamaki (Skim). Moderated by Columbia University librarian Karen Green. 4:00, NORTH STAGE.

Festival Address:

♫ School is starting soon! I’m teaching Sophomore Drawing for Illustrators at SVA this year. Sharpen those pencils!
