FRANK SANTORO: Summer Course 2013 -
To paraphrase Brandon Graham paraphrasing KRS-One -“I’m talking to, like, three of you people out there”. (around the 39 min mark - http://www.inkstuds.org/brandon-graham-frank-santoro-and-michael-deforge/)
I know I post advertisements for my correspondence course maybe a little too…
Franky quotes an inkstuds episode.

Comic Artist Boulet interviewed on Inkstuds -
Hilariously awesome French cartoonist Boulet was interviewed by Inkstuds (which is one of my favorite comics related podcasts).
Given that a lot of Boulet’s stuff hasn’t been brought over to the US/Canada/UK anglophone audience it’s an interesting listen. His webcomic/blog (which he’s been translating) is made of all kinds of awesome - moving easily from darkly beautiful, funny, thought-provoking and just immensely smart - it’s very refreshing.
Extra bonus - he’s also on Tumblr at Bouletcorp
OH man. I was just reminded of drawing this many moons ago. It’s Robin McConnell, my friend and host of the comix show INKSTUDS, as a taur. It’s his birthday today, too, so go to his site, listen to his show, and shower him with adoration.
Taurs are horrible.
I have reblogged this before and will do so again every 6 months until i am dead.

I love this!

I’m going to be doing a summer correspondence course. The focus will be on advancing your understanding of layouts, color, contour line drawing, and printmaking for producing comic books. The 8-week class is $500. Payment plans available. This class is limited: only ten students will be accepted.
Who the hell am I? I’ve been drawing comics since 1988 – and writing about comics since 1995. I’ve taught drawing at Parsons. My work has been exhibited at the American Academy of Arts and Letters in New York and the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh. I have worked as an assistant to fine arts painters such as Francesco Clemente, Dorothea Rockburne and Gary Panter. Many of my paintings are in the collection of Bruno Bischofberger. My comic Storeyville is, allegedly, one of Chris Ware’s favorites. I’ve collaborated with Ben Jones. I was in a drawing contest against the French master Blutch – and it was deemed a tie! I have appeared in two volumes of Kramers Ergot. I am working with Dash Shaw on an animation project. I worked for the silkscreen wizard Frank Kozik. I am friends with Yuichi Yokoyama. I got into a yelling match with Brian Chippendale because I’m against photo-referencing. Jaime Hernandez taught me where all the freeways meet in Los Angeles. Gilbert Hernandez said my comic Pompeii was “pretty good”.
