Dash Shaw by Seth Kushner

DASH SHAW‘s latest book New School is just out from Fantagraphics and getting rave reviews. Shaw is a brilliant innovator who has made numerous ground-breaking graphic novels as well as animations for IFC and Sigur Ros. We’re honored to have him here in 2014.

(From the Fantagraphics website):
Dash Shaw is a cartoonist and animator in Brooklyn, New York. His graphic novel New School has been receiving rave reviews.  Recent books include Bodyworld and Bottomless Belly Button and his animated works include “Wheel of Fortune” and the IFC series The Unclothed Man in the 35th Century AD. In 2008 Diego Cortez curated Bottomless, an exhibition of Shaw’s original drawings, storyboards, color background overlays and a new video animation, for Duke University’s John Hope Franklin Center. Shaw is currently working on an animated feature produced by John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) and his Shortbus producer Howard Gertler (How to Survive a Plague).



 GABRIELLE BELL is an autobiographical cartoonist like no other. As she  renders the finely-observed details of her detached existence, she creates rhythms and trances in her comics which prepare the reader for her huge leaps of imagination, rich emotion and sharp humor.

Important information about HOUSING:

Price does not include housing.

We will make every effort to house the participants in informal and empty rooms in friendly houses in the Gainesville area. If there is a charge, it will fall on the student. We will make every effort to keep this affordable for the week. Most houses will be walking distance from SAW, but some may need bikes. We will try to accomodate this too. We will post more info as soon as we know, and email all participants personally with assistance in finding places to stay. Participants are invited to email us for assistance.

For those interested, we also recommend the Gainesville Zen Hostel, here.

Or AirBandB, which has spare beds and bedrooms in various house, check them out here:–FL
