CXC Online Panels Include Business Advice, Spotlights, Trivia
The online programming for this year’s Cartoon Crossroads Columbus — another entry on the long list of “events I wanted to go to this year before pandemic” — starts tomorrow, October 1, and there are some great options available.
The show schedule is here for your browsing pleasure, but a few things I want to highlight are:
“Financial Wellness for Artists” and “Your Art Is a Business”, two financial-focused webinars (registration required) that help guides artists in dealing with the business side of creativity. It is great to see a festival provide this kind of practical guidance.
Update: “Financial Wellness for Artists” is now available on YouTube.
A spotlight on Faith Erin Hicks that includes a virtual Q&A (registration required) and an explanation of the process of making a graphic novel.
That’s only one of the many focus events with a number of notable cartoonists, including a number of Discord chat sessions. I suggest you review the programming schedule to see more. The kickoff reception on Friday might be of particular interest.
There’s also a comic trivia contest that night that I’m registered for with some very old friends. We’ll see how we do.
