How and why do cartoonists use fictional characters as a stand-in for their own experiences? Moderator Alex Hoffman and artists Lawrence Lindell (The Section), Kelsey Wroten (Cannonball), and Trungles (The Magic Fish) will explore how fictionalization allows artists to express certain truths more openly, lets artists shape a narrative, and the process of deciding how much of one’s own story goes into a fictional story.
