Award-winning cartoonist Jess Ruliffson has spent the past five years interviewing veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars for a full-length graphic novel. In this presentation, Jess will talk about what it’s like to tell real people’s stories through comics, and perform a live comics reading of some of these stories. At the end of the presentation, there will be a portrait drawing demonstration and attendees will have the opportunity to engage in a Q & A with the artist. Jess teaches comics at the Sequential Artists Workshop in Gainesville.
