CAKE 2017 - Maximalism Panel!

Maximalism PanelJesse Jacobs, Ron Regé, Jr, Lale Westvind, and Marnie Galloway address different subject matter in their books, but their work expresses a similar horror vacui: all fill the entirety of their pages with intricate detail. And although nature may abhor a vacuum, comics is often described as a combination of poetry and graphic design, a definition that would appear to set it in direct opposition to a maximalist aesthetic. This panel discussion, moderated by Galloway, will address what drives these four artists to work in their distinctive styles and how their approaches affect the kinds of stories that they tell. This panel is sponsored by Busy Beaver.11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. - Saturday, June 10th at CAKE 2017!
