University of Oregon Lecture

Mon 11/26/2012

On Wednesday I will be heading up to Eugene, Oregon to give a lecture at the the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, which is part of the University of Oregon. Below is the official description of what I am going to cover:

Creating Comics in the 21st Century - Cartoonist and Center for Cartoon Studies faculty member Alec Longstreth will talk about the many ways technology is making it easier to create and distribute comics in this modern age. Topics covered will include zines, minicomics, print-on-demand books, webcomics and eBooks. If you are interested in self-publishing, you do not want to miss this lecture!

There is currently an exhibition of Peanuts originals on display at the museum, which was curated by one of the English professors at U of O, Ben Saunders. You can see him give a brief tour of the exhibit in this video.

My lecture is scheduled from 5:30-6:30pm and then afterwards I am conducting portfolio reviews for CCS (also the next morning). If you know anyone in or around Eugene who is interested in comics, please let them know about the lecture!
