My San Diego appearance schedule is as follows:
Thursday: 3:30-4:45 at the Oni booth with Greg Rucka.
Friday: 3:30-4:30 The Oni Press Panel.
5:30-close, Oni booth w/Greg.
Saturday: 12:00-1:30 Storytelling workshop.
2:30-3:30 signing at Next Planet Over.
Sunday: 12:00-1:00 signing at the Oni booth w/Greg.
1:30-2:30 signing at the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.
The rest of the time, I'll be either sitting on my ass in artists alley selling WHITEOUT, or running around having meetings with potential employers, sympathetic retailers and vicious parasitical human shit. Or I might just be walking around looking at comics.
The storytelling workshop will be an informal presentation. Jeff Parker and I will
talk about the art and craft of storytelling, discussing the techniques we use to make our pages bland and unremarkable. Then we'll go over some portfolios while the group watches. This is assuming that anyone shows up- I think our class has been scheduled opposite a presentation that DC is running, attending which, as I understand it, will actually be required of anyone who wants to show DC their portfolio. Maybe instead of a class we can just have a sing along.
And of course you'll be able to spot me at the Eisner awards. I'll be the tall, flabby white guy in a cheap suit, drenched with sweat, chewing his nails to the quick, snapping at his friends and slugging Maalox from the bottle while assuring everyone that, "as inclination changes, thus ebbs and flows the unstable tide of public judgement." Watch me self-destruct, sitting gibbering and playing with my lower lip. Hygine? Out the window. I'll be lucky to make it though this thing without getting thrown out or beat up.
If you're coming to San Diego, stop by and introduce yourself. Mention that you saw this message here and time permitting, I'll scribble out a quick doodle of Carrie Stetko for you, which you are encouraged to spend hundreds of dollars framing. Again, this is as time permits. Now that I've worked on a comic that's getting some attention, I don't have as much free time at cons as I used to. Please don't take it personally, even if is, in fact, personal.
