Feast on the menu of workshops and talks at this year’s Print and Resist!
11:30 am – 12 pm: UW Comics Club, “Imaginary Friends: Making Collaborative Comics” with Captain Santa
You can make a character out of anything, just ask Pixar. In “Imaginary Friends,” we’ll do some fun drawing games you can use anywhere, whether your characters are high-def or a circle with a smiley face.
1 – 1:30 pm: Nicolas Lampert, Climate Prints Project
Milwaukee-based interdisciplinary artist Nicolas Lampert will be talking about Climate Prints, a website/activist infrastructure project that shares downloadable graphics on Climate Justice and puts this work directly into movements.
1:45 – 2:45 pm: John Porcellino, “A Personal History of the Early Zine Days”
Comics artist John Porcellino, creator of King-Cat Comics (running since 1989!) and author of The Hospital Suite (Drawn & Quarterly, 2014) will be showing some of his early work and talking about discovering zines and self-publishing—how he got into zine-making in the first place.
3 – 3:30 pm: Joe Brusky, Lane Hall, and Lisa Moline, Overpass Light Brigade
The Overpass Light Brigade was forged in the activist climate of the Wisconsin Uprising, a loose and inclusive affiliation of people dedicated to the power of peaceful protest and artful activism. Their messages shine at night over highways and other public spaces. In this talk, they will be discussing OLB’s actions and methods, showing images and videos, and taking questions from the audience.
4 – 4:30: UW Comics Club, “Great Works of Literature with Cartoons” with Captain Santa
In this workshop, we will start by recalling books, stories, and cartoon characters we remember from youth. Then, by picking from the lists at random, we will create illustrations depicting a scene from a book or story with a cartoon character!
Plus all-day book-making and zine-making workshops!
