José Quintanar

Sports comics have a long and distinguished tradition, both in America and abroad. They present a unique challenge for cartoonists: trying to find a way to depict dynamic movements in a static medium. Join José Quintinar (Gran Slam), AJ Dungo (In Waves), Rob Ullman (Old-Timey Hockey Tales), and Ellen Lindner (The Cranklet’s Chronicle) as they discuss how they bring tennis, surfing, hockey, and baseball (respectively) to life. SPX Executive Director Warren Bernard will moderate and provide his own perspective on sports cartooning with examples of work by Willard Mullin, the pre-eminent sports cartoonist of the 20th Century.
