Well, I’m back from New York, where I gave that “lecture” at RPI last night.
All in all I think things went well. I had lots of fun, and it seemed like the audience enjoyed it, which was the most important thing to me. I talked a little bit about what my comic is and how I make a living at it, and then gave some demonstrations on how one of my comics might be put together.
I was worried that it would terribly boring… I mean I do this day in, day out, so it’s very normal to me. I guess I forget that sometimes when you see and enjoy something regularly, it can be really neat to see how it’s made. But we had fun, joked around, I did horribly innapropriate things with the Cintiq.
I got to talk to a bunch of students afterwards, and they all seemed to have enjoyed themselves. And I chatted with some of the people who had driven hours to come see it, and they said it was worth the drive, so that made me feel really good.
I want to thank everyone that showed up, you were such a wonderful audience, it made my job so much easier. It was probably one of the larger audiences I’ve ever spoken to, but it went very smoothly. So thank you all, and I hope you had as much fun as I did.
Now it’s back to work for me!
