June 10th, 12:00–1:00 p.m. My So-Called Cartoon Life: Alter Egos with Celia Marquis
Comics is a great medium for telling personal stories, be they funny, contemplative, or traumatic. In comics narratives, authors’ alter egos may resemble them physically and/or psychologically, but they may also possess traits that their makers don’t have or that are exaggerated for various reasons. Join TRANSIT recipient Celia Marquis, a Montreal-based cartoonist, as she guides you through the process she uses to develop her own alter egos and then leads you through exercises to conceptualize your own. This workshop is sponsored by Cream Wine.
