Minneapolis Jam: April 2012

Summary: Our good friend Jamie Schumacher paid us a visit and gave us some pointers on how to organize successful groups. For me the key takeaway was being comfortable with branding yourself and your projects — it seems like a creepy corporate-y thing to do, but at the end of the day good branding helps the people around you get a sense of what you’re trying to accomplish. Thanks, Jamie!

Coming up next!:
MAY 3: Gordon McAlpin, “Illustrator Boot Camp” – Making digital comics & using digital lettering.
JUNE 7: Jon Sloan, “A Brief History of Comics” – An historical look at the medium we all love so well.
If there’s a topic you’d like to see or even lead yourself, contact me at nordeastcomics [at] gmail.com. UPDATE: Currently all future slots are closed as we transition into a new format in Summer 2012.
