Restraint is pretty cool, sometimes

In the latest installment of Boulder and Fleet: Adventurers for Hire, Boulder teaches Sapph-Fire a quick lesson in the proper application of power. But has he merely escalated things?

A2CAF is this weekend!

http://a2caf.com

If you're in the Southeast Michigan area this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, I hope you'll consider coming out to A2CAF, the graphic novel festival held at the Ann Arbor District Library. You'll get to meet cartoonists like Cece Bell (El Deafo), Kazu Kibuishi (Amulet), Ben Hatke (Zita the Spacegirl), Tom Angleberger (Rocket and Groot), Nathan Hale (Nathan Hale's Hazardous Tales), and more. And every hour there's a workshop where you'll get to learn about or make your own stories.

And admission is free!

Check out the full schedule at http://a2caf.com/programming

Talking about inking on the Lean Into Art Cast!

We all know by now that there are no “right” tools for drawing. But how do you begin an investigation into which tools to use? How do you interview the tool for the job you want it to do? On that topic, how do you define the tool’s job description?

Join us for an exploration of various inking tools we have used and continued to use in our illustration and comics work. We’ll hold live demos for as many of the inking tools as time allows.

This Hangout On Air is hosted by Jerzy Drozd. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Still better than Rob Liefeld. :) (I'm a critic, too, so I can get away with those shots.)

Let the negotiations begin!

In the latest update to Boulder and Fleet: Adventurers for Hire, our heroes present the villains with a safer, more lucrative line of work. But with Sapph-Fire on the loose again, have they lost any chance of a peaceful resolution?

We each have our own way of showing gratitude.

In the latest update to Boulder and Fleet: Adventurers for Hire, our heroes and villains alike enjoy a quiet moment now that the danger has passed. Maybe the mineral bandits will have a change of heart, now?

How do you recover from the intensity of travel and promotion?

Coming off of a month of attending conferences, leading workshops, and organizing festivals, Jerzy and Rob discuss how they pull themselves back together and get back to making the things they love to make.

Rocksanne kicked a guy in the butt!

In the latest installment of Boulder and Fleet: Adventurers for Hire, Agnes continues her sales pitch to turn her team toward a life of do-gooding. I'm not convinced that Sapph-Fire will be swayed.

Imagine all the people

In the latest update to Boulder and Fleet: Adventurers for Hire, Agnes begins spinning an alternate timeline where the mineral gals help lizard miners instead of terrorizing them. Will her powers of persuasion turn Sapph-Fire away from evildoing?

How do you know for whom you’re making a thing? Do you establish this at the outset, or is it something you discover in the process of making the thing? Can the intended audience change over the lifespan of making a thing, and if so, how do you adjust to that? Can thinking about serving a specific audience serve as a useful design constraint, or is it a fast track to paralyzing your creativity?

Join Rob and Jerzy for a discussion on how our thinking can change when we think about whom we’re trying to serve as a benchmark for projects, products, advocacy, and networking.

Story
Tagline
Cartoonist and teaching artist.
Introduction
As a cartoonist, I've worked for publishers and self-published my own comics stories. Here's a list of some things I'm known for:


I also work as a freelance illustrator (here's my portfolio). Some of my past clients include:
  • Marvel Comics
  • The Arizona Department of Tourism
  • The Arizona Nutrition Network
  • Wachovia Bank
  • Brain Age games for Nintendo

I'm a teaching artist as well, which is one of my favorite jobs. I teach comics classes and lead presentations on comics year-round in the southeast Michigan area and beyond. Here are some of the places at which I've led classes or presentations:

I co-organize the annual Kids Read Comics Celebration, a free comics event that offers a family-friendly artist alley, drawing demos, and free hands-on workshops for kids and adults.

Lastly, I'm known for creating audio and video shows about comics. I host a weekly show recorded live at the Ann Arbor District Library called Comics Are Great! along with many other shows available on my website.
