5:30-6:15 PM HOW TO DRAW FUNNY! WITH MAD’S TOM RICHMOND, THE SIMPSONS’ PHIL ORTIZ, WEAPON BROWN’S JASON YUNGBLUTH, AND DICK TRACY’S JIM BROZMAN
Ever wonder how humor artists are able to create characters and stories that leave us laughing like idiots? Here, four of the finest practitioners of the simple art of humor—Tom Richmond (MAD Magazine; 2012 National Cartoonist Society’s “Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year”), Phil Ortiz (The Simpsons TV series and comics), Jason Yungbluth (MAD Magazine; Weapon Brown) and Jim Brozman (Dick Tracy; Dr. Weird)—tell and show you how they do it! Moderated by Danny Fingeroth (How to Create Comics from Script to Print).
I’ll try and post pics and do tweets and whatnot from the convention floor.
As always, anyone who brings me a cold can of Monster Ultra Zero (that’s the funky white can) get’s a free “Alfred as Batman” sketch!
150 On sale tomorrow everywhere fine books (and this one) are sold!
