OPEN DRAWING SESSION + ARTIST TALK MOCAD and Green Brain Comics present the 6th Annual Comic Jam with guest artist Phoebe Gloeckner Saturday, March 14, 5pm to 8pm Admission: free All are welcome to jam! Participants create spontaneous, improvised, collaborative comics and free-form drawings with each other. At 7pm, following the jam session, acclaimed graphic novelist Phoebe Gloeckner will talk about her art and career. Her book, The Diary of a Teenage Girl (2002), was praised as “one of the most brutally honest, shocking, tender, beautiful portrayals of growing up female in America.” R. Crumb called her story Minnie’s Third Love one of the “comic book masterpieces of all time.” Gloeckner continues to experiment with technology and the form of the novel. She is striving to create an electronic “multi-touch” book offering a seamless reading experience, a work that feels to be of one piece rather than an “enhanced” novel with multi-media annotations and side matter. Gloeckner is an assistant professor in the Penny W. Stamps School of Art and Design at the University of Michigan.
