Reminder – Nat at Schulz Museum on Saturday

Just a reminder that I will be the Cartoonist In Residence at the Schulz Museum from 1 to 3 PM this Saturday. That means mainly that I’ll be there, doing a little work on a project, and answering questions of anyone who feels like asking them.

Since the current exhibition The Language of Lines focuses on the non-verbal aspects of the comics art, I will be prepared to discuss the various effects and tropes at hand. And to go along with that and with the exhibit of 75 wordless Peanuts strips going on in the original art gallery there, I’ll bring along some copies of pages to “Jenny’s City,” my upcoming silent comics project about a girl who finds herself alone in an abandoned city, which I’m doing in collaboration with Malaysian artist Milx.

And of course, if you have questions about Schulz books or anything else I can answer, I’ll be glad to chat.
