Join Ellis Kim, creator of the fantastic time travel webcomic Time Fiddler, Spencer Bingham, maker of the fantasy webcomic Homebound, and Maia Kobabe, celebrated for eir comic adaptation of the medieval ballad poem Tom o'Bedlam. Ellis is an Alameda-based illustrator who loves well crafted interactive narratives, believable characters, and clarity in visual conveyance. Spencer is an (almost) lifelong resident of the Bay Area who studied character animation at the Academy of Art University. Homebound was originally slated as a stop-motion short before it evolved into a webcomic. Maia's Tom o'Bedlam was accepted into the Society of Illustrator's Comic and Cartoon Art annual and nominated for an Ignatz Award in 2016.
Ellis, Spencer, and Maia will discuss their series, inspiration, and how they got started, followed by a question and answer session. This panel will be moderated by Andrew Farago.
