I went to the comics launch pad today. It was quite something to hear about how it is done in the business first hand and I am exhausted from all the new information I took on board.
I met the Comic Book Alliance of GB who yes, knew all about Comics Alliance US and were (also) some lovely helpful people. I feel all together more at home now that I have gone into Birmingham and surprised myself by still knowing my way around...
My favourite talks were by Joey Cavalieri and Klaus Janson (see above working on Ed McGuiness' penciled Hulk). They have been in the business so long that their perspective is quite esoteric and philosophical by now. It was so cool to listen to Mr Janson get all dreamy about lines, watery lines and ones that start thick taper thin, that meet and merge or lines that just end in a blob!
I came away inspired and ready to get back to work.
