NY Comics & Picture-story Symposium covered by The Rumpus

Gregory goes over his layouts for B+F, and I look excited about being introduced by the great cartoonist, Ben Katchor.
Gregory Benton and I  had a great time speaking at The sixty-sixth meeting of the NY Comics & Picture-story Symposium (hosted by Ben Katchor.) last Monday night at Parsons. Gregory spoke about his process of making his new book, B+F and I gave a talk about the history of Fumetti/Photonovellas and on my own history of making Photocomix.

Keren Katz wrote up a thorough and compelling piece on the event for The Rumpus, complete with a plethora of images for the presentation. Highly recommended reading.

Artist, Chelle Mayer (granddaughter of the legendary cartoonist, Sheldon Mayer) was in attendance and drew this wonderful interpretation/distillation of my presentation.
The New York Comics & Picture-Story Symposium is a weekly forum for discussing the tradition and future of text/image work. Open to the public, it meets Monday nights at 7-9pm EST in New York City. Presentations vary weekly and include everything from historical topics and technical demonstrations to creators presenting their work. Check out upcoming meetings here.
