MCAD Studio Invasion!

March 15th, 2012 | Posted in General

I had the pleasure of a visit from a group of students from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design in my studio last Tuesday. They were from Jim Keefe‘s “Pro Practice: Comics” class. I would like to think I imparted great wisdom and advice to them all, but to be quite honest I don’t remember much about what I said . . . I was operating on about 3 hours of sleep and only stopped working on a looming deadline job when they were there. Went right back to work afterward. I am sure I was charming, though. Nobody cried, so that’s a step up from the last time I met with art students. Lots more pictures here.

I forgot to make them put all their change in my Batman bank you see by the window . . . I must have been really tired.


  1. Great idea with the Batman Bank! Time is money you know…

    OMG – This looks the best amusement park ever! 🙂
    When you will give an opportunity for foreign fans to meet you personally and maybe have a drawing/technique course with you? I would save money to joint his. Have you ever thought about it?

      I have travelled to other countries to do that sort of thing. I was in Cali, Colombia and Havana, Cuba in the last few years.

    Give us some info on that large format printer you have. Also your scanner. Anything, positive or negative.

    Truly state of the “art” studio! The Mad Art of Caricature should be a required textbook for MCAD’s comic curriculum. Sometimes we make more sense speaking in an exhausted delirium:) Happy St. Paddy’s!
