This year was the first time I chaired a panel titled “Critical Comics”. I was really lucky to have three great artists talk about their work and comics.

I was able to see my work included in the “The Laser-Printmaker” portfolio that was shown during the conference…BIG THANKS to Dana Potter for inviting me to be a part of this and organizing the portfolio.

I was so impressed with the WVU Printmaking students for hosting their own mini-open portfolio! Their flight left before the end of the conference, so they organized their own event.

It was a huge success, students everywhere sharing their work and building their community! Great work everyone!!!!

The demos were wonderful as always! Jeffrey Dell pulled back the curtain a little bit about how he makes his amazing silkscreens!
