MCAD Comic Art Update from Mandie Brasington & Jaime Willems

line

The Minneapolis College of Art and Design’s yearly Mini-con is coming up March 14th and 15th!

That’s right, Mini-con is now being spread over Friday and Saturday, free and open to all as always!

From noon to 3:30 pm Friday we will be running the traditional Mini-con featuring current MCAD students, ending with a showing that night of Will Eisner: Portrait of a Sequential Artist.

Exhibitors on Saturday will be students and MCAD Alumni.

The con, for the first time, will also contain a whole day (10 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday) of exciting panels to attend – as well as an exhibition of student comic art!

The evening will culminate with a showing of Will Eisner Profession: Cartoonist
(the elusive Brazilian documentary).

For more info and a list of events, check out their Facebook page.

MCAD Graduates 2013

A big round of applause to all the MCAD students who graduated this afternoon!
Here’s just a small sampling of some of the amazing work showcased in the Spring 2013 Commencement Exhibition.

Click on any thumbnail to access slideshow.

The last four I was able to snag the artists into the picture – wish now I had dragged more over to do so. I had also planned to include a few more pics, but regretfully some of the photos just didn’t come out.

To the students; Now take some time off to celebrate, after all the hard work you did (especially in the homestretch) you deserve it.

Wishing you all the best!
