Join us on Wednesday, September 27 at 6 p.m. at Falvey Speakers’ Corner for an event featuring professional cartoonist Brad Guigar titled “Mastering the Art and Business of Web Comics.” This inaugural event will celebrate comics, graphic novels, and sequential art. Webcomics have been up and coming since 2000, and a new generation of creator-entrepreneurs who taught themselves about art and business are currently finding stable careers in a world where “published” artists are struggling. Webcomics have opened the door for marginalized voices that had previously been ignored by corporate gatekeepers.
Brad Guigar is a pioneer in the comic industry and has been publishing his daily comic strips and other comics on the web for over 20 years. His comic, “EVIL INC.,” tells the story of supervillains who realized that most of their evil schemes could be enacted legally if they formed a corporation together. Guigar has published over two dozen collections of comics as well as three books titled, The Everything Cartooning Book, How to Make Webcomics, and The Webcomics Handbook. He has been nominated for the Eisner Award in Comics, the ‘Ringo Award, and the NCS Silver Rueben Award. He also co-hosts a podcast called ComicLab, where he discusses making a living with comics. He resides in Philadelphia with his wife and two sons.
This event, co-sponsored by Falvey Library, Department of English, Creative Writing Program, Department of Communication, the Idea Lab, and the Writing Center, is ACS-Approved and open to all!
