And here’s another great event for the weekend, Brandon Graham talking about Comics, Creativity, and Censorship at the Society of Illustrators/ The event is sponsored by the CBLDF.
Brandon Graham, the acclaimed cartoonist of the highly influential graphic novels King City and Multiple Warheads, and the driving force behind the genre-bending science fiction series Prophet will appear in New York City on September 19 for a lecture and reception at the Society of Illustrators, and sponsored by Comic Book Legal Defense Fund! CBLDF will also be offering copies of a new, limited edition sketchbook by Graham!
Graham brings a broad, international range of influences to his comics, fluidly meshing Japanese, European, and North American genre and literary styles within his approach. In this slide lecture, Graham discusses his influences, and unpacks his approach to solving creative problems, navigating censorship and self-censorship, and advancing a unique creative point of view in the current publishing landscape.
Graham’s lecture will begin at 7 PM to be followed by a cocktail reception from 8 PM to 11 PM at the Society of Illustrators, 128 East 63 Street.
