THE ARTFUL ART OF CON ARTIST ARTISTRY
Would you like to get PAID for those little doodles you do? Want to hang out with all your favorite artists? Ever dream of spending countless hours behind a table, slaving away at commissions? No? WELL TOO BAD, ‘cuz Matt Burt’s going to tell you just how to do it…even though some of his methods are…unsound.
Drawing comics can be fun, but they can also be a pain. Sometimes the panels just look flat, the angle is off, or it just doesn’t have that… “Unf!” Well, Matt Burt’s going to show you how to “unf” your comics so that you can go “unf unf unf” all night long! Come and let Matt show you how to de-suckify your comics…or you can come and show him just how WRONG he is.
If you’ve always wanted to make a webcomic, or just wondered what kind of work went into the creation of one, this program is for you. Come participate in a discussion on webcomics with guest Bill Holbrook and panelist Jay Naylor, and be sure to bring questions for the Q&A session!
If you want to lend a paw, but aren’t quite ready for the commitment that a staff position requires, please volunteer! If you would like to help out, contact our volunteer director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
