Earlier tonight my friend Neil and I went to see Scott McCloud (Understanding Comics, Zot!, The Sculptor) speak at Wittenberg University in Springfield, Ohio. He talked about visual literacy, the unused potential of the comics medium and monkeys, Monkeys, MONKEYS!!!
His power point show is innovative, informative and pretty dang great. He’s a fantastic speaker with lots of energy (maybe it was the 22 oz. Mountain Dew he was drinking during the presentation) and you can see him in action giving a Ted Talk by clicking here.
Anyway, I drew this sketch of him while he was speaking. He waves his hands around a lot (again, 22 oz. of Mountain Dew).
Wittenberg is also having a Mini-Comics Workshop this Thursday, March 19th. If you’re in the area stop by and attend. It’s a beautiful campus and you can see their upcoming goings on by clicking here.
