Vegas Schlocker Meet-up, Saturday the 26th
Submitted by Howard Tayler on September 17, 2009 - 22:57
Iâ€™m attending (and presenting) at a cartooning seminar in Vegas next weekend, and our hosts have arranged for some fan-time. Iâ€™ll be at The Tuscany on Saturday, from 6:00 to 8:00pm, along with several other cartoonists of note, including Daryl Cagle, Chad Carpenter, and Bill Kellogg.
The seminar itself is full. Iâ€™m excited to have the opportunity to rub shoulders with my peers in the print cartooning world (the seminar is geared towards self-syndication, which means getting into papers without big corporate help) and maybe a little worried about being a voice in the wilderness. Iâ€™m not especially interested in syndication, self- or otherwise, but Iâ€™m SUPER interested in making a living as a cartoonist. Iâ€™m sure there will be lots and lots of delightful discussions, and yes, I will actually spend some time listening. Itâ€™s a good skill I picked up from my kids.
But the seminar isnâ€™t what you Vegas-area Schlock fans are interested in. Youâ€™re just there to come and say â€œhelloâ€ and maybe get me to sketch in a book.
Iâ€™ll post again next week as a reminder, and Iâ€™ll probably tweet about it too.
