Press Release by the Society of Illustrators
COMICS OUT LOUD Saturday, January 28, 2012 1:00 - 5:00PM 128 East 63rd Street, NYC
Featuring: LOUISE SIMONSON, WALTER SIMONSON, BOB WIACEK, CHRIS SOTOMAYOR and JOHN WORKMAN. Curated by DANNY FINGEROTH
Comic books (and their cousins, graphic novels) are something we're all familiar with from childhood on. But if you're not involved in making them, how they come to be can seem a little mysterious and intimidating. Now, the curtain is pulled back as comics editor and writer DANNY FINGEROTH, in collaboration with the SOCIETY OF ILLUSTRATORS presents: COMICS OUT LOUD
In a manner similar to the Society's acclaimed ART OUT LOUD events, COMICS OUT LOUD will feature top comic book creators-one from each discipline of the medium-demonstrating and discussing their work processes as attendees circulate around the room and watch the process of "sequential art" (as the great Will Eisner dubbed it) being made.
You'll get to watch writer LOUISE SIMONSON, penciler WALT SIMONSON, inker BOB WIACEK, colorist CHRIS SOTOMAYOR, and letterer JOHN WORKMAN as they ply their crafts. Each creator will be working on a current assignment, so that attendees will get a sense of how team-created comics come to be. Event organizer, and longtime comics editor, DANNY FINGEROTH, will be on hand to discuss and demonstrate the role of the editor in the comic book making process.
COMICS OUT LOUD will be a rare opportunity to see top creators doing (and speaking about) their work. You will have the chance to find out everything you always wanted to know about making comics, but were afraid (or didn't even know) to ask!
$50 non-members, $40 members, $20 students Food will be available for an additional $5. Reservations are limited. Click here to reserve your spot!
