July 19, 2010

I’ll be signing books and original art at my BOOTH # 1714.

10:00-11:00 The Spark of Imagination

New York Times bestselling children’s author Tony DiTerlizzi (The Spiderwick Chronicles) details the precedent-setting augmented reality used in his new Simon & Schuster novel The Search for Wondla; LAIKA president/CEO Travis Knight (lead animator, Coraline) explains his studio’s commitment to bold subject matter; artist/writer Mike Mignola (creator of Hellboy) pinpoints how and where inspiration strikes; director John Stevenson (Kung Fu Panda) explores how creativity is enhanced by artistic collaboration in moviemaking; and graphic novelist and Comic-Con special guest Doug TenNapel (Earthworm Jim) describes exactly how a blank page comes to be inhabited with his compelling imagery. Join moderator Geoff Boucher, reporter and blogger with The Los Angeles Times, for this fascinating panel discussion and Q&A. Room 25ABC

12:05pm – 12:25pm Go Sukashi!
— See the internet video sensation that brought peace to the Middle East! It’s short, so you can get back to your furry cosplay tea party. The panel will include insipid ramblings from Justin Spurlock, John Soares, Brooke Brodack, Doug TenNapel and Hal Forsstrom. Marriott Hall 1 & 2 (Marriott Hotel and Marina)

10:30-11:30 Spotlight on Doug TenNapel
— Writer/artist, video game creator, filmmaker — Comic-Con special guest Doug TenNapel has it all covered. His graphic novels, including Creature Tech, Tommysaurus Rex, Monster Zoo, and Ghostopolis, have been optioned as big-budget movies. Hear what’s next from this multitalented creator! Room 5AB

Still Sunday:
12:30-1:30 The Funny Stuff: Humor in Comics and Graphic Novels
— The world of comics isn’t just about dark and mysterious superheroes. There are a lot of great funny books out there. The Cartoon Art Museum’s Andrew Farago talks to Comic-Con special guests Peter Bagge (Hate), Howard Cruse (Wendel), Nicholas Gurewitch (The Perry Bible Fellowship), Keith Knight (The K Chronicles), Larry Marder (Beanworld), and Doug TenNapel (Monster Zoo) about the humorous side of comics.

    So are you at your booth whenever you’re not at a panel?

    Hiya Mr. TenNapel,

    I met you at the booth on Sunday with my little son Yusef strapped to my chest. Thanks again for the kind words and encouragement. It was a pleasure, and I hope to be able to share something with you in the near future, creative-wise.

    Also, thanks for the Go Sukashi recommendation. That is DIRECTLY up my alley.

    I was supposed to send a letter with a friend of mine who were going there, but after getting a summer job that saved both my life and economy, I just forgot all about it. very sorry about that, really!
    but I see on pictures and comments from other that it was fun(maybe) :) haha

    I stumbled on your blog from another link, and spent more time than I should reading.

    I’m impressed with your writing re Christianity; I think it may be helful to me personnaly because it puts clarifies some underlying structure for my beliefs (I’ve been Christian for many, many years and I’m an engineer but somehow don’t have your discipline or logic & I’ll be borrowing some words).

    Again, I’m old & haven’t been very interested in graphic novels but I think I’m going to have see some of your craft. I have a 13 & 17 year old, maybe I’ll get something for them and borrow it.

    I live in Austin TX & there is a comic con here in a few weeks; any chance you’ll be here?

      I don’t have plans on doing the TX con. I usually only do San Diego though I’m doing Emerald City Con in Washington next year.

      Thanks for digging my stuff.
