I’ll be turning up in Juneau, Alaska, with my remarkable wife/attorney (wifettorney?) Katie Lane this weekend!
I’ll be presenting a First Friday gallery show at the Alaska Robotics Gallery, followed by a lecture at the Downtown Library, featuring my work in designing characters for comics in multiple styles, including Outfoxed, Family Man, Bite Me!, and Danse Macabre. This will include some sketches and development work that haven’t been seen by anybody beyond a five foot radius of my studio desk, so if you’re in the area, you don’t want to miss it!
Later in the week Katie will be teaching her signature workshop on negotiation techniques for independent artists and creative entrepreneurs.
I’ll be teaching a workshop on character design vs. character development, including original exercises as well as some drawn from Ursula K. LeGuin, an obscure Swedish roleplaying game, and a theater professor I briefly met on a college tour. If you want to improve or enrich how you approach writing and drawing fictional characters, please attend!
It will be held at the Douglas Library in Juneau from 1:30 to 3:30 pm this Saturday, Nov 8th. I’ll see you there!
