I recently finished all 31 one-page scripts for my ONE NIGHT STAND comic project. Done. I'll have more to say about that tomorrow. Right now, I want to mention three speaking/teaching events coming up.
Thursday, October 22nd, 4:30 PM at the Burleson Public Library -- I will be speaking to their Teen Anime/Manga Club about the future of comics and job opportunities in the field. Hey! Stop laughing. I'm sure job opportunities exist. I know plenty of people who have had them. (I'm just not one of those people.) My presentation will be a more thoughtful variation of this rant I posted back in April. The event is for 12 to 18 year olds only, but you don't have to live in the city of Burleson to attend.
Saturday, November 7th, 10 AM to 3 PM -- ArtLoveMagic is hosting a workshop day for artists. More details soon. I don't know what I'm allowed to say or what's been announced. I'm teaching a class on "Creative Partnerships and Publishing in Comics." Once again, I realize I'm not the best expert in publishing, but between now and then, I'll think of something smart to say. I think Paul Milligan is helping with this class, but we haven't talked about it.
Friday, April 23, 2010 -- I'm speaking to the students at Bennett Elementary in McKinney, Texas. Comic books and such. I'll also tell the kids to stay in school. Hugs not drugs.
I'm available for all sorts of events. You want to hire me? I'll talk your frickin' ear off about comic books. I want to do something with the Writer's Garret. I emailed them a few times, but we never confirmed anything. They are still trying to figure out if what I do "counts" as writing. (Kidding.) And of course, the demand for comic book scriptwriting classes might be low too. (More likely.)
