Dartmouth Illustration, Comics and Animation Conference

I had the pleasure of attending the Dartmouth Illustration, Comics and Animation Conference as a guest artists last weekend.  We held a small book fair on the first night, and it was interesting to chat with all of the conference presenters -  people were saying it is still pretty renegade to mix comics with academia ( ! as far as their home institutions are concerned.)  There were great presentations on poetry comics, autobio and the culture of pain, the double & simultaneous views inherent in word and image, etc. 

I brought five minis to the book fair:
