We're happy to bring our classic DARE2DRAW back to The League with this FREE launch party to celebrate two of our industry's founding fathers, as we mark their centennials, this year.
Hosted by Simon Fraser and our very own Edie Nugent!
Join us with the one and only Kyle Baker, winner of (eight) Eisner Awards, (five) Harvey Awards, (five) Glyph Comics Awards --- to share in his reflections on Will & Jack's contributions and what the future of the sequential arts “comics” might hold.
Also joining us will be Rand Hoppe, the true engine behind the awesome Jack Kirby Museum & Research Center, who will help us dig deep into what Kirby actually did, as a cartoonist that we all can learn from.
Featuring 90 minutes of Dynamic Action drawing, with live-action models & props and our signature Dare2Draw “Quick Draw” Contests, with all art done on Blue Line Pro boards. The pro art is auctioned for artists-in-need.
