Jeff Smith in Conversation
With David Filipi
Tuki, Bone, and 30 Years of Cartoon Books
Fri, Oct 1 / 7pm
Free, ticketed, In-Person
Columbus-based cartoonist and Bone creator Jeff Smith joins Wexner Center for the Arts Director of Film/Video David Filipi to discuss his most famous creation Bone, the 30th anniversary of his independent comic book company Cartoon Books, and the recent release of his latest books TUKI: Fight for Fire, and TUKI: Fight for Family! TUKI is set two million years ago, when many different types of humans roamed upright on two legs across east Africa. The story introduces the reader to a number of these groups: Australopithecus (the branch that included the famous Lucy); the Habiline people, whose bigger brains led to stone tool creation, and new humans who entered with an amazing new power, the ability to create and control fire! Filipi was the co-curator of the exhibition Jeff Smith: Bone and Beyond at the Wex in 2008.
A signing in the Wexner Center lower lobby follows the conversation.
