From Paper To Screen: The Comic Artist’s Creative Battle

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Technology has not only advanced the way in which we create comics, it has also changed the way in which we digest content. Format has always been a consideration, whether it’s traditional media like newspapers, comic books, and magazines, or more current media like your mobile phone or laptop. Advancements in technology have given immeasurable freedom within self-publishing, and new tools for creative expression.

This talk will examine the history of pushing the boundaries of format, starting in print, with Watterson (Calvin & Hobbes), and pushing forward to the present day.  It will expose non-comic artists to a variety of webcomics they may be interested in, and there will also be some technical details and considerations for comic artists as well.

Presented by Christopher Hemsworth, creator of the webcomic Dear Inner Demons, which has been featured in a variety of publications, including WiRED magazine, and The Huffington Post. (dearinnerdemons.com)
