2013 Creative Time Summit, Day 1
I’m attending the Creative Time Summit this year. The theme is “Art, Place, and Dislocation in the 21st Century” and it’s chock full of material I’m very interested in. For an event that mostly consists of sitting in an auditorium and watching lots of people give quick presentations, I really can’t imagine better. (And the end of the day is beer, conversation, and copious Legos, which is pretty perfect.)
There are many, many really remarkable artists, thinkers, and activists in the line-up. It’s educational and inspiring, and much cheaper and faster than graduate school. I’ll be back for Saturday. I sketched all the presenters on Friday, because I was
dumb smart enough to start sketching without thinking through what I was committing to. I would have liked to have written a bit about each presenter, or at least provide links, but instead I am going to get some sleep tonight and you’ll have to do your own research. (The Summit schedule may help.) And, oh, the three musicians—playing kora, hammered dulcimer, and saw—acted as the time keepers, keeping the speakers strictly to schedule.

Six-panel Comic Using Cinematic Techniques
A couple of months ago, Tom Motley led a panel sequence workshop as part of the NY Comics & Picture Story Symposium. We discussed the potential application of cinematic techniques to comics, and then took 40 minutes or so to each make a comic using some of those techniques. MIne used panning and zooming. It’s the longest comic I’ve made in quite a few years.
Q & A
“Hi Jason, this week has been a hard week for me. How are you?”
And it’s only Monday.
