Sith in Wonderland
Thanks to writing group I got some quickie sketching done while listening to other readers. The topics right now for Drawergeeks and ToonClub are Design a Sith and Mad Tea Party.
Siths are, for you lucky non-nerds, Jedi folk who have turned to the dark side. This Sith, I like to imagine, is called something silly like Darth Monocle and has an ongoing feud with Ewoks and Yoda's people. I doubt his midichlorian count is very high.
Regarding writing group, I've been asked to help out at their first annual three day conference. I'll be giving a talk on writing and drawing comics. It will focus on the importance of comic anthologies and how to make tackling a large project like a graphic novel less intimidating. If you are in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, definitely come check it out. The conference runs from Feb 22-24, I'm not certain which day I will be speaking as I just confirmed last night. I will probably be the only speaker focusing on art and comics, however, there were be tons of other great speakers talking about writing, characters and story. There will also be literary agents attending and other fun stuff. Early registration ends November 14th.
