The Kubert School at C2E2

It was great seeing The Kubert School represented at C2E2 this year.

Brigid Allanson and Angie Fernot – Class of 2012.

And with the Kubert School you don’t just get some random shill handing out flyers, but two highly skilled Kubert School graduates giving you practical firsthand information, Brigid Allanson (left) and Angie Fernot (right).

The two were fielding questions, selling prints and were available for portfolio reviews.


And speaking of which…
Even though there were a lot of publishers at C2E2, those companies had people on the floor to sell merchandise, not to look over an aspiring cartoonists portfolios. With Brigid and Angie you had two artists that have a working knowledge of the field that is just invaluable to the up-and-comer looking to break into the business.

I doff my Joe Kubert School hat to them in salute.

      As a Kubert graduate you got a network of fellow alum out there. A friendly bunch if ever there was one – remember that.
