My Ames is True

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.

    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.

    Dear Scott,

    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,


  9. […] 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 […]
