The Blog of Gene Luen Yang - Colorado Language Arts Society and CSU Sacramento
Colorado Language Arts Society and CSU Sacramento 
Life has once again gotten the best of me and I have fallen behind on my blog updates. In a couple of hours, I'll be speaking about how COMICS ARE INVADING AMERICA! at the Colorado Language Arts Society conference. I'm sitting in the swanky Inverness Hotel right now looking over my notes. I'm looking forward to it, but I wish I had posted about it earlier. Oh well.

On Tuesday 11/16, I'll be doing a presentation at 3pm at Cal State University, Sacramento. I'll post more details when I have them. Hopefully.

Ohio State University's Festival of Cartoon Art 


In just two days, Ohio State's 2010 Festival of Cartoon Art begins! The festival's already sold out, but I thought I'd mention it anyway. I'll be speaking there on Saturday about American Born Chinese. There are going to be many, many awesome aspiring and professional cartoonists there, including Art Spiegelman, James Sturm, and Matt Groening!

Details and schedule here.

What are you doing tomorrow (Friday 8/6/10) night? Come to SLG Publishing Headquarters in San Jose at 8pm! For those who aren't in the know, SLG Publishing puts out fabulous graphic novels like Street Angel and Skeleton Key. They've also put out a few graphic novels by me. They're featuring my original pages on the walls of their store for the month of August, and they're kicking off the whole thing with a little shindig tomorrow. There will be live music and comics!

Even if you can't come by tomorrow, drop by some time over the next 30 days to see my messy, dog-eared artwork being treated like museum pieces or something.
