Thursday Programming Spotlight: Digital Art On The Run Panel

While we haven’t officially released our full programming listing yet, we do know quite a few of the panels we’ll be holding this year, so we’ve decided to do some spotlights on them so you can see what to expect this year.

The first panel we’ll be talking about is our “Digital Art On The Run” panel. This panel is about tools and devices that can help artists get work done when they are away from their main business or home computer. Onezumi and I will be hosting this panel ourselves. Onezumi will be doing a demo using a Tablet PC (using Photoshop), as well as an iPad (using Sketchbook Pro), so she’ll be able to answer questions on the usage and workflow of the devices. I’ll be available to answer questions on the technical side as well as costs and other business related issues.

So in many ways this panel will be an asset to those who want some answers about the software involved, and the hardware, but also want to get some ideas on what might make the most sense financially to fulfill this “art on the go” need.


Next Round of Guests Added

We’ve updated the Guests page with our newest additions to the Intervention guest list. Kara Dennison of Con Screw, Tovias of Reality Amuck, and Christiann of Sticky Comics have all joined the Intervention party this year. We have quite a few more people lined up and we’ll be announcing them soon when we get their confirmations.


Friday Guest Spotlight: Michael “Mookie” Terracciano

Michael “Mookie” Terracciano is a webcomics machine. His webcomic Dominic Deegan: Oracle For Hire has been running as a daily comic for it’s entire run since May 2002–with no breaks. Wrap your head around that concept for a minute then go over to Mookie’s archive…you can stay there for months and still have plenty of story to read. He’s in it for the long haul, and his dedicated group of readers love him for it.

Mookie, like Pete Abrams of Sluggy Freelance, is one of the lucky people out there who make their living entirely off their comic. Besides his many volumes of books for sale he sometimes even has handmade scarves available for sale (made by his mom!) that are replicas of his main character’s scarf (hmm, will they become as popular as a certain scarf of a certain british sci-fi hero…they sell out about as quickly).

A side note on Mookie–He was the first “established” comic to ever link and support our comic at Onezumi.com after we met him at a convention. He’s that kind of guy. His success helps validate the idea that nice guys don’t always finish last.


Friday Guest Spotlight: Pete Abrams

You can’t talk about the history of webcomics without mentioning Sluggy Freelance. Pete Abrams has been around since the start of the entire concept of web based comic distribution, and will probably outlast everyone else at the rate he’s going. He’s been doing it since 1997 and working full time at it (and noted to be the first person to make an actual living off of webcomics) for most of that time. You practically can’t get a large group of webcomic professionals together without a huge discussion of the current story line of Sluggy breaking out, often with shouted opinions on where and what should be happening next in the comic. The list of cross overs and references to Sluggy in other comics is enormous, with our comic being one of them.

Pete will be at Intervention to meet up with his fans and doodle constantly (as he’s known to almost constantly be drawing). If you’re lucky a few sessions of Get Nifty, the game based on his comic, might break out in the Intervention game room (the game, by the way, was designed by another Intervention guest Rob Balder).
