Two comics-ish events today and tomorrow featuring two interdisciplinary art, comics, & illustration luminaries.
At tonight’s New York Comics & Picture-Story Symposium the underground-influenced painter, illustrator, and cartoonist Gary Panter will… Actually, I’m not really sure what he’ll be doing, so here’s the official NYCPSS description of tonight’s 7pm event at Parsons The New School, 2 West 13th Street:
Gary Panter attempts to invoke the unfolding lotus of the 1960s by thumbing through an old magazine missing pages – LOOK, Jan 9, 1968.
If you want something a little more structured, idiosyncratic illustrated book creator Maira Kalman will be at the New York Public Library for Books at Noon in light of her latest releases, Ah-Hah to Zig-Zag and My Favorite Things, both of which were inspired by items in the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum‘s collections.
And in conclusion: Hello again faithful readers! Sorry for abandoning the blog! Not sure if anyone noticed, but since I haven’t been thinking of comics & opera any less since my last update (all the way in June!) I figured I’d try to revive this hobby blog!
Since we last spoke, I’ve launched my own little webcomic at SebaSM Comics! It updates twice a week with mostly autobio-ish gag comics, so I’ll be sure to plug those here too 😀
Ok, see you around!
