Dash Shaw in Gainesville Florida @ Sequential Artists Workshop
Just completed my first workshop at SAW with Dash Shaw and had a blast, learned a lot and met some great people. Gainesville is a great artistic mecca in the south, so much going on here - so much community! Was able to attend a screening of Dash’s animations on Tuesday and the local FLA Gallery had pages from his book New School on display. There’s also a great comics art show going on right now at Gallery Protocol called Non Sequitur: Abstraction in Contemporary Sequential Art, featuring works from a wide selection of cartoonists / artists such as Pat Aulisio, Derek Ballard, Josh Bayer, Erin Curry, CF (Christopher Forgues), Hellen Jo, Aidan Koch, Emma Louthan, Molly Colleen O’Connell, Gary Panter, Raymond Pettibon, Ron Rege, Frank Santoro, Dash Shaw, and Angie Wang.
Here are some pictures from the week.
