The Cartoon Art Museum hosts freelance artist and cartoonist Alex Schumacher on Saturday, August 22, 2009 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. as part of its ongoing Cartoonist-in-Residence program. Museum visitors will be offered the chance to talk to him about his comics and watch Schumacher at work.

Alex Schumacher is originally from the Central Valley of California, and now lives in the Bay Area. He has been working in freelance illustration since the age of 18, influenced by books ranging from Madman Comics to Calvin and Hobbes. Thus, he has worked on a wide range of projects such as editorial comic strips for newspaper, the series Boomerangs, and most recently, The Wicked with writer and friend Mark Peaslee. Together they established September 23rd Studios, a new venture to produce comic books and comic-related material. When not creating his comics, Alex Schumacher is bassist and vocalist in the folk/rock band Tobela, which has performed in several venues around the Bay Area since 2007.

This event is free and open to the public.
