March 2, 2018, 6:15 PM – 7:15 PM, TCC L3 – Room 2
Join two cartoonists who have turned their niche passions (the nautical and the naughty) into successful careers in the world of comics earning them professional accolades and invitations to guest lecture at universities and appear at events around the world for an intimate fireside chat. Bellwood and Moen will unpack their combined 20+ years of hard-won industry experience and probably talk about their feelings a bunch too. Yes, there will be a real fireside. No, this is not a joke.
I got my hair freshly re-dyed for this so y’all better come say hi ;)
