Sequential Art Meetup - Comics & Visual Storytelling #01 event report

Thanks to all who came out to the first Canvas “Sequential Art Meetup - Comics & Visual Storytelling” event at Everyst HQ last Thursday, February 15th!

The event began with presentations: first with a brief history of Tim Young’s podcast Deconstructing Comics, then Mulele Jarvis’ experiences with funding comics through Kickstarter, and Raúl Trevino describing his creative process and his recently launched story, Live Forever.

The following Q&A session gave our presenters a chance to discuss a variety of topics, including social media (the consensus is to focus on what’s most fun!), and print versus digital; where we talked about advantages and disadvantages, distribution, print amount, and stock.

We hope everyone enjoyed hanging out afterwards, and getting to meet fellow creatives to talk stories, ideas, collaborations, and life in general!

Special thanks to Benjamin Watanabe for letting us use Everyst HQ (formerly LongShorts) for the event! https://fromeveryst.com
