My Ames is True
January 26th, 2011
I’m off to Ames, Iowa this afternoon for my Thursday night lecture at Iowa State University. If you’re in the area, I hope you’ll make the drive down to say Hi.
The family and I had a strange, magical evening in Ames during the 50 State Tour in 2007. Looking forward to visiting again.
Back to blogging Monday. Have a great week & weekend.
So…not to seem needy…but when you coming to New Mexico 😉
The family and I had a great time in Albuquerque in 2007, but no engagements there since. Maybe one of these days.
Scott, do you get invited to all these speak events or do inquire to be involved? I hope this question isn’t too forward.
Apart from San Diego and the occasional art comix con like SPX, all my engagements are by invitation.

Couldnt believe my eyes… McCloud in my home town! I will be there!
Hope your travels treat you well, sir. Enjoy Ames.
Man, If I had a car and didn’t have exams to study for, I’d be there in a heartbeat.
Make sure to visit the Quad Cities eventually, Scott.
I brought Scott to my school last year and it was fantastic. Iowa will love it!
I really enjoyed your talk last night at ISU. Besides being fun, you brought up a lot of interesting things to think about. My husband and I were still talking about it this morning.
I came up to see your talk last night, thanks to my boyfriend, who is a graphic design student at Ames. We both really enjoyed it; you’re full of interesting thoughts. One thing you mentioned briefly which I’d like to hear more about: the connections you make between comics and music.
Thanks for coming!
Here’s an old post about comics and music.
It was a real pleasure meeting you. The workshop was extremely interesting (I was the tall french guy). I still have about a thousand questions and with my “world building” european background, some thousand debatable answers.
Nice to meet you,
[…] evening, Sara and I had a great opportunity to go hear a lecture at ISU in Ames by comics guru Scott McCloud. I read Scott’s book, Understanding Comics, during high school and later it was required […]
