Words and Pictures: Writing and Drawing a Graphic Novel Date: Thursday, October 10, 2019 Time: 5:30 pm-7:00 pm Location: Burr and Burton Academy, Hunter Seminar Room Fee: $18 in advance; $22 at the door
Using his own work and that of other cartoonists as examples of different approaches to visual storytelling, Jason Lutes will discuss his personal process of conceiving, researching, writing, and drawing a graphic novel. What are the strengths and weaknesses of this unique art form? How do the physical constraints of the printed book impact creative decision-making? The talk will conclude with discussion of Lutes’ book Berlin, a work of historical fiction about the rise of fascism in Weimar Germany.
