SCAD MINI-COMICS EXPO
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!
Joey Weiser, creator of Mermin, will be a guest at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia THIS WEEK from November 5 – 7.
SCAD students can attend the lectures listed above, and the Nov. 7 workshop, “Creating a Comic Workshop for Kids” is open to the the public!
