This year our monthly meetings will be featuring demos and presentations about different aspects of the process of making comics. The special guest for March was Tyrell Cannon.

Tyrell is a comic book artist living and working in Chicago, IL. A graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, he is known for his comics Gary, Simon, and Victus. Additionally, he is the co-editor of the science fiction romance comics anthology Speculative Relationships.
Tyrell was kind enough to show our packed house at Third Coast Comics his comic inking process and a bit of his behind-the-scenes touch-ups when finishing a piece digitally.
It was a lot of fun and a lot of people said that they enjoyed the presentation. Thanks very much to Tyrell for coming out and spending so much of his time sharing his techniques with us. Also thanks to Terry at Third Coast Comics for hosting the event and supporting our group.
Next month, the Editors of the Ladies’ Night Anthology will be giving a presentation entitled: “Pitches and Portfolios: How to Get the Attention of Editors & Into Anthologies” Wednesday, April 12th, 7pm at Third Coast Comics. The meetup and Facebook event pages will be posted here as soon as they are available.
