Graphic novelist Nicole J. Georges (@nicolejgeorges) will discuss her 20 years of experience as an illustrator, zinester, organizer, teacher, and artist-in-residence. Workshop participants will learn the basics of forging a career as a working artist including branding, outreach, and creative ways to use your degree to support yourself and your community. Also we hear her dog Ponyo might be joining her! :)
