SPLAT!

This Saturday, March 15th, I will be participating in a panel at SPLAT! A Graphic Novel Symposium that will take place at the New York Center of Independent Publishing (NYCIP) in Manhattan.

Webcomics offer creators a flexible medium with an 'infinite canvas' - your work doesn't have to fit into the consistent dimensions of a book. This allows veteran creators to enter a new world of possibility, free of the constraints of page limits. It also, perhaps even more importantly, opens the life of a comics artist to plenty of people who don’t have the connections or artistic training to write for one of the big publishers ­ but who can draw a funny (or interesting, or beautiful, or angry) comic on the computer once or twice a week, and share their vision with the world!
