Chicago Comics Symposium

Just wanted to remind you about the upcoming Comic Symposium, taking place in SAIC's very own Ballroom on Thursday and Friday, March 10-11, from 4pm - 7pm both days.
It's an aMAZing opportunity to see comics professionals like Anders Nilsen, Sarah Becan, Jeffrey Brown, Paul Hornschemeier and more speak on their work and ideas. Artists/SAIC faculty Jeremy Tinder, Anne Elizabeth Moore, Surabhi Ghosh and I myself will be speaking on a panel or two as well.
