The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund proudly presents Conversational Comics: a new summer speaker series taking place on three separate Saturday afternoons at Union Pool in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Please join us for lively panel discussions with artists currently changing the face of comics, all moderated by comics critic (and Parsons Illustration Adjunct) Bill Kartalopoulos. Then stick around to get a book signed, hit the taco truck, and sip a summer drink with our featured cartoonists.
The event takes place at 2:00 pm in the back room at Union Pool. Union Pool is located at 484 Union Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11211, one block from the Lorimer-Metropolitan G and L stop.
August 15 @ 2:00 pm
Lines on Paper: Drawing and Cartooning
Austin English (Windy Corner, Christina and Charles), Lisa Hanawalt (Stay Away From Other People, I Want You), and Dash Shaw (Bottomless Belly Button, Bodyworld) will discuss the relationship between image-making and drawing for comics. How do pictures work differently in comics than they do on gallery walls?
Suggested donation is $5. All proceeds go to benefit the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.
Bill Kartalopoulos teaches classes about comics and illustration at Parsons. He is a Contributing Editor at Print Magazine, where he frequently writes about comics.
