Inspired by the illustrative world of Gary Baseman as explored in the exhibition Gary Baseman: The Door Is Always Open, attend this panel of graphic novelists as they discuss the conceptual underpinning of contemporary graphic storytelling and L.A.’s central place in the world of the graphic novel.
Like Gary Baseman, many graphic novelists use illustration to depict fantastic worlds of their own making. Panelists Sina Grace (Not My Bag and Li’l Depressed Boy), Hope Larson (A Wrinkle in Time, Who Is AC?), Nick Thorburn (author of What a Gas and lead singer of the band Islands), and Malachi Ward (Expansion, Utu, and Ritual) discuss their work and the world of the graphic novel. A Q&A and book signing follow the program.
Sponsored by The Skirball Cultural Center, and The Secret Headquarters, this is going to be an event to remember. All attendees get a limited edition print of the image above (signed by all four panelists).
Wednesday, May 8, 8:00 p.m.
