I have more to say about Art Spiegelman’s lecture, which wasn’t really as discouraging as the final panel of this comic might suggest. Basically it’s hard to hear someone as accomplished as Spiegelman talk about comics and not walk away inspired, even if he starts out with the age-old warning to any creative person: Don’t quit your day job (or in my case, go get one.) Anyway, lots of really interesting stuff in that lecture, and I’ll use it as an excuse to actually write something in my blog. Soonish.
Edit: Haha, interviewer and cartoonist Joe Sacco apparently has the ability to float without any support of a chair. Awesome Joe!
