Manga versions of Shakespeare by my students

leave a comment »

Two of my students have recently adapted Shakespeare into m-a-n-g-a format…

Yali Lin drew Romeo and Juliet and Tintin Pantoja did Hamlet. Hurray for them. Order the books here:

Also on the roster was Julius Ceaser by Hyeondo Park (great guy, who was not one of my students) and Macbeth by Candice Chow (I don’t know her.)

Lileks’ section on comics and funnybooks

leave a comment »

Few sites raise joy in my dark heart like James Lilek’s Institute of Official Cheer. This panel is from his subsection on Big Little Books in his “Unimpressive Examples of the Sequential Art” section.

New Classes, new interview

leave a comment »

I’m teaching two Continuing Ed classes this fall: Mondays at the SVA and Tuesdays at the 92nd Street Y. You can browse curricula/registration links here:http://www.tomhart.net/teaching/

The classes are pretty similar, though the 92nd Street Y class is much more about comic strips, and the focus will be on short form much more than the SVA class.

I’ve also been refining my teaching pages a bit more. There’s a page of recommended books there now, and other links I’ve been trying to gather and organize. Do not miss Samm Schwartz! Master of the suit!

Finally, a new interview with me is up at The Daily Crosshatch: http://thedailycrosshatch.com/2007/08/13/interview-tom-hart-pt-3-of-3/

Michael Parks – Visions of God

with one comment

Hey an ex-student of mine, Michael Parks, has gone off the deep end and is composing new cosmic graphic novels/imagery about god, the universe and everything. He’s exploring all this stuff in a very strange, cool, self-posessed way. Check out his new GN, Visions of God, here.

Michelle’s opening!

leave a comment »

Friday was my student Michelle’s opening for FLIES, her art
extravaganza exploring her fly characters in all imaginable media:

paint, drawings, stickers, photos, and animation! Look at these people
riveted by the animation. Go flies and bravo Michelle!

3 week SVA Precollege Class Debrief

with 2 comments

Picture262_28jul06

Finished an amazing 3 week class teaching 38 high schoolers to make cartoon stories. Each kid made a finished 10 page story, and we published a giant compendium. Everyone rocked, and the final 7 hour crit/celbration/show was high energy and invigorating. Pics below
