FULL STEAM AHEAD
The Sculptor drops February 3 and we’re hitting the ground running with the official First Second U.S. Tour of 14 cities in 16 days, followed by six additional European tours in support of our foreign editions, plus presentations in at least four additional American cities; all in just three months (February, March, and April).
So if you can get to New York City, Portland ME, Boston, Washington DC, Houston, Austin, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Portland OR, Seattle, Chicago, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Lansing MI, Huntington Beach CA (details at right), Burlington VT, Mississippi, Richmond VA, Springfield OH (details soon), or one of our multiple locations in England, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the Netherlands (details soon), I hope I’ll have the pleasure of meeting you in the next 100 days.
Meanwhile, plans are heating up fast for summer, fall, and winter, with major convention announcements in the offing and even more appearances springing up around the world.
Most of our official publisher-sponsored tour stops (see above and at right) will be conversational, improvised events with some visuals included, focused on my graphic novel.
Meanwhile I’m also scheduling the big visual lecture throughout the year. That one is the huge fast-moving presentation on comics and visual communication which will be steadily evolving all year (I’ve developed a special interest in some of the broader issues of visual education, but more on that later). If your school or other organization would like to get info on THAT opportunity, feel free to drop me a line.
Regardless of where it happens, let’s meet soon. We have A LOT to talk about!
Glad you could make it to Houston and not just Austin. I hope to see you there.
Really enjoyed hitting the museums in Houston last May. It’ll be fun to swing back around, however briefly!
But why not Canada?
I’m definitely going to Canada! We just haven’t made the announcements yet.
Remember, all that stuff above; that’s just the first THREE MONTHS!
I hope you’ll stop by AZ at some point.
Hope so too! The year is young, 😉
I notice that you will be in Paris in march. Great news 🙂
At the Salon du Livre, no less!
Gone mad with joy after learning that you’ll be speaking at the British Library in March! I’m a comix editor and first met you at a UofHouston lecture years ago. Have since moved to London where good things are happening in the comix world too, but not nearly enough. This is gonna make my year 😀
Hey Scott, halfway through the Sculptor and I’m really enjoying it so far. How did you come up with the idea to start each even page with a bleed panel? Or did you borrow this idea? It really contributes to the flow,
Learned it many years ago, reading Manga!
Hi Scott, I’m from Singapore and I’m interested in your graphic novel. In fact, I’m getting a copy of it today. Will you be coming to Singapore for a book tour as well? My country may be small but I’m sure there are fans here who would like to meet you. 🙂 Our largest bookstore here would have to be Kinokuniya at Orchard Rd.
No plans to visit Singapore at the moment, but you never know!
