Minneapolis Jam: July 2011


NORDEAST COMICS SUMMIT
Summary: Act I: Zander Cannon introduces himself and sets the tone for the discussion. Act II: Zander dives into his talk, deftly describing how he structures a three act story, emphasizing how to weave in characters, theme, and flow. Act III: In a final heroic push, Zander answers questions and wraps up this month’s Summit. As always, we videotaped the Summit, and those videos will be posted online eventually.

Next month (August 4) the Nordeast Comics Summit is pleased to welcome Rob Stenzinger to the stage for a talk that’s tentatively titled, “Using your comics characters as a basis for a videogame.” We’ll have more detailed info on nordeastcomics.com later in the month. Rob tells me there’re a lot of different directions his talk can take, so come with questions! And on September 1 Danno Klonowski will take the stage. Details on that are forthcoming as well!

If there’s a topic you’d like to see or even lead yourself, contact me at nordeastcomics [at] gmail.com. The next available date is October 6, 2011.

INTERNATIONAL CARTOONIST CONSPIRACY
We have some sad news to report. Two of our favorite local cartoonists — Lars Martinson and Red Tenderson* — are leaving our fair state to pursue greener pastures. A few of us had a going away BBQ for Lars last weekend, and for Red Tenderson we decided to devote this month’s Cartoonist Conspiracy jam to his favorite topic:

Friendship is Magic

Hello, Friend.

Please enjoy, and godspeed Lars and Red.

*In the interest of him not losing his new job, Red’s real name is hidden from this google searchable blog post.

    Lots of great moments in that jam… wish I could have made it last night. We’ll miss you, Ted!

  2. […] Speaking of pony comics, guess who got himself a job and moved all the way to Omaha? Our buddy Ted! This July’s cartoonist jam marked Ted’s last with us for some time. We will miss him a LOT. To let him know how much, that night’s jam was dedicated entirely to Ted and his little ponies. You can download the whole pdf here. […]
