joeyweiser: SCAD MINI-COMICS EXPO Next week I’ll be the special…



Next week I’ll be the special guest at the Savannah College of Art & Design’s Mini-Comics Expo! The expo itself is from 10:30am-5:00pm on Nov 7 at Hayman’s Hall, First Floor, and I’ll be there selling books, mini-comics, and prints!  But that’s not all…I’ve got a few lectures and workshops scheduled around the show:

Nov 5, 11:00am-12:30pm Lecture: “Joey Weiser: A Career in Comics” at Clarence Thomas Center Chapel – Going through my entire career, with a focus on how there is no one path to success and how one job can lead to another, sometimes in unexpected ways.

Nov 6, 10:00am-11:00am Lecture: “Anatomy of a Mini-Comic” at Jen Library room 310 – Dissecting my new mini-comic TALES OF UNUSUAL CIRCUMSTANCE NON-ANNUAL SPECIAL #1 from cover to cover, citing influences and inspirations throughout the book, describing how they relate to me and my work.

Nov 7, 2:30pm-3:00pm Workshop: “Creating a Comic Workshop for Kids” at the Mini-Comics Expo – A meta-workshop where I will give my presentations that I have created for kids at book events, discussing what I’ve learned by presenting to a young audience.  Includes a live comic reading, drawing demonstration, and activity for kids of all ages!

I will also be visiting classes and bouncing around SCAD the week leading up to the expo, so if you’re a student please look into where you can see me!  And if you’re in the Savannah, GA area, please come to the Mini-Comics Expo. I’d love to see you there!

Don’t forget to check out these events in Savannah, GA starting TOMORROW! Joey Weiser, creator of Mermin, will be hosting lectures at the Savannah College of Art Design and a worksop at the Mini-Comics Expo.
