Drawing For Animated Cartoons with Stephen DeStefano at MoCCA!
Written by janice headley | Filed under Stephen DeStefanoevents 14 Feb 2012 11:46 AM

Stephen DeStefano

It's time to go back to school with Professor DeStefano!

Our award-nominated Lucky In Love artist Stephen DeStefano is heading back to the podium at MoCCA, and this time, he'll be laying down the laws of "Drawing for Animated Cartoons" -- something he knows a thing or two about, as the storyboard and design supervisor on Adult Swim's The Venture Brothers, only one of the best cartoons out there!

Stephen will focus on design and composition for characters, backgrounds and storyboards -- in other words, on the overall drawing process for an animated production. The course will show you how to design characters and backgrounds from a script, and how to compose shots for storyboards from the same script -- all with a focus on drawing. 

Early Bird registration is going on now until March 15th, so don't delay, sign up today! Classes will be held on March 26, and April 2, 16, & 23 at MoCCA [ 594 Broadway, Suite 401 (between Houston and Prince), New York City ].

Gary Panter Lights Up Detroit This Friday!
Written by janice headley | Filed under Gary Panterevents 7 Feb 2012 11:15 AM

Our friends at PictureBox report, Gary Panter and longtime collaborator Joshua White are debuting their largest collaborative project to date this Friday, February 10th at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit!

The Joshua White and Gary Panter’s Light Show will occupy nearly all of the Museum’s 22,000 square foot area. Oh my GOD. MoCAD illuminates (heh) the exhibit: "As intended by White and Panter, the exhibition will serve as a platform for performances by guests working in a variety of media and disciplines, including musicians, video artists, comedians and engineers, who are invited to interact with the work and activate the space."

Gary's been sending iPhone pics to Dan over at PictureBox, and apparently, a lot of the paintings in the show use a paint only visible under blacklights. Visit his blog to see more of these pics, but here's one I couldn't resist, of a bunny:

The Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit is located at 4454 Woodward Ave in Detroit. This exhibit will run through April 29, 2012.

Listening to Listen, Whitey! at the Fantagraphics Bookstore!
Written by janice headley | Filed under Pat ThomasFantagraphics Bookstoreevents 6 Feb 2012 3:36 PM

Listen, Whitey!: The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965 – 1975,

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery this past weekend as we celebrated the release of Listen, Whitey!: The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965 – 1975.  It was the very first time we were able to present the book to the public, and every copy just blew outta the store!

Authors Mark Long and Jim Demonakos

We were also honored to be joined by local authors Mark Long and Jim Demonakos (also the founder of Seattle’s Emerald City Comicon!), who together with cartoonist Nate Powell, created the graphic novel The Silence of Our Friends. The chilling story was inspired by real-life incidents that Mark experienced growing up in the racially-tense environment of Texas in the mid-60s.

Pat Thomas, author of Listen, Whitey!: The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965 – 1975

And then editor Pat Thomas stepped up to the projector for his slideshow on Listen, Whitey!: The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965 – 1975, with our friends at the adjacent store Georgetown Records providing the soundtrack with the companion CD of the same title from Seattle-based Light in the Attic records.

And his presentation was riveting! It was so cool hearing the stories behind these rare tracks that Pat discovered, many of which are being released on CD for the very first time ever!  I ended up going home and staying up until 2:00 AM reading his book, and supplementing it with internet research on the Black Panthers. My mind is blown.

If you're also intrigued by the musical scene behind the Black Power movement, Pat is going to be giving a 90-minute presentation on Thursday, March 1st at the historic Washington Hall here in Seattle! More details, including ticket information, can be found on the FLOG here.

And Pat promises, if you get there early, you can hear the entire 20 minute radio segment that Black Panther Eldridge Cleaver recorded after he helped Timothy Leary escape from prison... aaaand then put him under  "revolutionary arrest" when he got sick of him! Hilarious!

TCAF 2012 guests announced: Giandelli! Jason! Schrauwen!
Written by janice headley | Filed under Olivier SchrauwenJasonGary PanterGabriella Giandellievents 3 Feb 2012 3:07 PM

Jason

The Toronto Comics Art Festival has announced the first batch of special guests for the 2012 fest, and we're excited to reveal that we'll be hosting the following global guests on May 5th and 6th:

Jason: You asked for him, you got him!  Jason was, hands-down, the most asked-about artist at TCAF 2011. See? Don't say we don't ever listen to you, Toronto. He will be signing his latest, Athos in America, along with many, many other books.

Gabriella Giandelli: We are absolutely delighted to be hosting Gabriella, all the way from Italy! This is a rare treat to meet this wonderful artist, and we'll be debuting the collection of her Ignatz comic Interiorae!

Olivier Schrauwen: And making his North American comic convention debut (we're pretty sure), it's Olivier Schrauwen! He'll be signing copies of The Man Who Grew His Beard, among other things.

And stay tuned to the FLOG as we announce which artists from this continent will also be joining us at the Fantagraphics table for TimBits! See you at TCAF!
