Our friends Tom Hart and Leela Corman over at the Sequential Artists Workshop in Florida need your help! They are all about making comics education affordable for all and have been doing a great job thus far. SAW currently has an IndieGoGo campaign up with a ton of great rewards geared to you. A mere ten bucks gets you a mini from Steven Weissman, Jessica Abel, Box Brown or more from their fantastic list of contributors. Thirty-six dollars can get you a whole saddle-bag full of minis. There's art by David Lasky, an Eric Curry shirt and much, much more!
In 2014, SAW is hoping to do a number of things with your donations such as bring more artists to Florida to work and teach, assist more students through affordable programs and/or scholarships, expand/extend our grant program expand their library, upgrade their equipment (computer, Risograph, etc.) AND expand studio space to accommodate 4 or more drawing spaces. They hold amazing workshops with visiting artists (like Dash Shaw and Gabrielle Bell coming up in 2014). SAW also provides printing scholarships to biannually, everyone's favorite Annie Koyama was even a judge in 2013.
Hold on to your horses, the howling wolves of great comics and design are baying. We don't want to unseat you but find you some seats! On February 19th, Chip Kidd & Chris Ware will appear before your very eyes at Town Hall in Seattle. Part of the Litarary\Arts Series, the two will engage in a coloful conversation (maybe even a fight to the death?) starting at 7:30pm.
There is a signing afterwards and their books will be on sale for those of you not clutching a well-loved copy already. Buy your tickets now and make it a great holiday gift; be it Christmas, Boxing Day, Valentines or Darwin Day!
Chris Ware is an award-winning comic book artist and cartoonist, whose work includes the celebrated graphic novel Jimmy Corrigan, the Smartest Kid on Earth and most recently Building Stories.
Chip Kidd, associate art director at Alfred A. Knopf, is a renowned graphic designer who recently released the book Go: A Kidd's Guide to Graphic Design and designed Tony Millionaire's Maakies treasuries. Seattle Arts and Lectures are excited to have these two artists talk with each other about the worlds of design and comics, as their conversation should make for a colorful evening.

Don't forget! Tomorrow night at 6pm in Furman Hall on the NYU School of Law campus there is the (Un)covering Guantanamo Panel with Janet Hamlin.
The Center for Human Rights and Global Justice and the ACLU are delighted to bring together a panel of speakers with unparalleled experience depicting and reporting on the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, and the military commission trials taking place there.
Included on this panel are Janet Hamlin, artist behind Sketching Guantanamo: Court Sketches of the Military Tribunals, 2006-2013, and Carol Rosenberg, who wrote the foreword for the book.
This distinguished group of journalists will address the challenges and opportunities of covering the most important terrorism trials of our time at an off-shore military base, discuss long-standing allegations of censorship and excessive secrecy, and consider the extent to which the United States government has succeeded (or not) in managing the public image of Guantanamo and the military commissions. They will also discuss the fates and stories of the detainees they have covered.
Joe Sacco's latest book is The Great War, published by our distributor W.W. Norton. This BEAUTIFUL book is actually one large illustration 24 feet in length. Get your self this beautiful accordian folded book today and catch Sacco out on the town(s) to get it signed.
