Earlier this year, The Israeli Museum of Comics and Caricature worked with our Israeli publisher, Kinneret Zmora, to arrange a series of exhibitions that explore the ‘behind the scenes’ activity surrounding comics in Israel. Their first exhibit opened in March with BONE being prominently featured! The exhibits display the work and production processes involved: translation, adaptation to the Hebrew language and culture, anecdotes from the publishing houses, production and everything in between!
Take a look at Kinneret’s Facebook page to see the very cool display!
The Society of Professional Journalists recently held their regional conference at Ohio State on April 4th, and invited Jeff to give the Keynote address. The event took place at the Billy Ireland Museum, in the Jean and Charles Schulz Lecture Hall, where Jeff engaged the audience (Conference attendees, Educators and Journalism students) on the merits and similarities of cartooning and journalism. Introduced by his mentor, and respected former museum curator, Lucy Caswell, the conference ended with an enthusiastic start to the weekend! The Regional Chapter posted some additional photos on their Facebook page, which you can find here
As a ‘thank you’ for the evenings festivities, the Conference gifted Lucy and Jeff with bricks from the over 100 year old original Journalism Building! There are only a few of these left, which makes them all the more treasured.
Jeff’s first online comic will be making its print debut in a few short weeks! Tuki #1 is 32 pages, in FULL COLOR, and has the very affordable black and white price point of $3.99. Did I mention its in FULL COLOR? Issues of Bone #1 now sell for up to $5,000! That’s a 45% average annual return on your investment! Can you afford NOT to acquire a copy of Tuki #1?
