I'll be at ALA this weekend in Aneheim. Here's where you'll be able to find me if you're attending the conference. Most of the time I'll be hanging out at my table in Artist Alley. It's table #580 in the Graphic Novel/Gaming Pavilion. Stop by and say hello and check out all my books and look at some of my art.
On Saturday I have a few things happening:
From 10:00 - 11:00am I'll be signing copies of Beep and Bah at the Lerner Publishing Booth #2228. They will be giving away copies of Beep and Bah so make sure you come early. I'll be drawing sketches of Beep and/or Bah inside each one.
From 1:30 - 3:30pm I'll be taking part in a panel called Animated Tales: Storytelling in comics and animation and everything in between. The panel features Dan Santat, Bob Boyle, Tom Warburton and myself. Here's the full description:
Readers old and young have grown up fans of animation, cartoons, comics, and graphic novels. Given the renaissance in graphic novels in recent years, it’s no surprise that animators are turning to the printed page to tell their stories. Animation flourishes on TV and in film from Fairly Oddparents! to The Iron Giant to Avatar: The Last Airbender, and the rise of comics has led to all kinds of crossovers between traditional illustration, comics, and animation. Join a diverse panel of creators, including animators and comics creators, to discuss the state of animation and comics, how storytelling is both similar and different in each medium, and which stories belong on the screen or on the page (or both!).
From 4:00 - 5:00pm I'll be signing copies of my new graphic novel Bird and Squirrel on the Run at the Scholastic booth #2634. This book doesn't come out till Aug 1st so this will be your chance to get it early.
The rest of the time I'll be hanging out at my table in Artist Alley #580.
I think that's about it. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone that's in attendence. See ya there!
