Anniversary Events – Sunday, February 10th – EXPLORING DIGITAL COMICS

spAs we (in the collective sense) continue to explore the possibilities of using technology in the creation of modern comic art, the Comic Book Lounge and Guerilla Printing, in coordination with Autodesk and the TCW, will be opening our doors on Sunday, February 10th (as part of the Comic Book Lounge’s 1st Anniversary Events) to a series of drawing demonstrations and talks to show you what is available, and what the Sketchbook Pro software is capable of doing for you.

Autodesk has sponsored the event and will be providing hardware and software for use in the drawing demonstrations.

Featuring demonstrations and talks by (working list):
– Michael Cho
– Agnes Garbowska
– Mike Del Mundo
– Tyrone McCarthy (Guerilla Printing)
– Ty Templeton
– Christopher Yao

Watch for a more detailed schedule on February 6th.

This is a free event, there is no admission charge. All are welcome, but we feel this is of particular interest to artists. We have seating for approximately 40, with additional standing room.

We will be providing cold drinks, coffee and some food at the event as well.

Hard to believe it has been a year since we opened our doors on February 8th, 2012 and we would like to celebrate by holding some special events on the weekend of February 9-10.

We’re planning a three stage celebration – an in-store MINICON on Saturday afternoon, followed by the return of On the Couch with Ty Templeton and an Industry Night Party after that.

We’re also having an anniversary sale — books at 20-75% off, some recent back issues at 50% off and a lot more!
