SVA!

Tonight was our first event-thingey, an informal classroom Q & A at Manhattan's School of Visual Arts, a great school with a proud history (Spiegelman, Eisner and Kurtzman all taught there for a time among many others). I was in full-out motormouth mode, but it seemed to go well and the 2 hours flew by. Afterward, we hung out with faculty and other great alumni and artists of the scene. Special thanks to Tom Woodruff, Keith Meyerson and the others at SVA who made tonight possible.



Among the great artists and teachers present were Raina Telgemeier and Dave Roman (above, left) and Jason Little (above, center in the red shirt) plus Jessica Abel and Matt Madden, Tom Hart, Nick Bertozzi, June Kim, my old DC compadre Joey Cavalieri, Sal Amendola and Jack C. Harris. I was especially delighted to have my first real conversations with one of my favorite modern comics artists, the great David Mazzucchelli.



The room's chairs were set up in a big semi-circle around a small podium with me in it.



I felt a bit dorky up there, but it worked out okay.

Afterwards, we got Dunkin Donuts! Which is a big deal to us, cause they don't have them out West.
