Comics Workbook Hangout
Casual drop-in session with the Comics Workbook team. Take a break from circling the ballroom and channel some of that energy and those new ideas into your own work. Instructors and materials will be on hand for those who need additional inspiration.

3:00-4:00 PM
Comics with Charles Burns
We hear that Charles Burns is bringing slides to show us. Join us in discovering what his sometimes dark but always thrilling world involves. Draw along with him – maybe he’ll even create some of those immaculately inked black lines before your eyes.

4:00-5:00 PM
Comics Workbook Hangout
You never know who you might bump into at this final Comics Workbook hangout session. Everyone needs a place to chill out near the end of the show – we might be working on comics when Jaime Hernandez shows up to kick it, or Daniel Clowes – who can say?
