You'll actually want to go to Summer School when Ignatz-nominated artist Tim Lane is teaching!
Professor Lane will be conducting a project-based workshop on the graphic novel and graphic short fiction for students seriously interested in producing their own graphic fiction. Participants will look at work from Tim's fellow Fantagraph-ians Charles Burns, Daniel Clowes, Joe Sacco, Art Spiegelman, and Kim Deitch, among others.
The class runs from May 21st through June 22nd at The Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts [ 1 Brookings Drive ] at Washington University in St. Louis. Registration deadline is May 15th, and you don't have to be a university student to register! Click here for more information.
The current issue of the Seattle Weekly features this über-creepy cover by Tim Lane starring Ted Bundy and far less well-known killer "Ray Jacobs" — I probably shouldn't post this late at night because I know someone who is going to read the article and then be up half the night (cough cough)...
Anyway, Tim has a bunch of great recent updates on his blog including progress on a piece he's working on for The Believer — check it out!
Tim Lane shares his breathtaking cover illustration for next week's Riverfront Times, which will feature his graphic feature narrative "Notes of a Second Class Citizen." You lucky St. Louisans will not want to miss out on getting your hands on a copy!
