Oct. 1st – Jeff Smith in Conversation With David Filipi Tuki, Bone, and 30 Years of Cartoon Books

Jeff Smith in Conversation
With David Filipi
Tuki, Bone, and 30 Years of Cartoon Books
Fri, Oct 1 / 7pm
Free, In Person, Ticketed (reserve online or pick up ticket at the desk)
https://wexarts.org/artist-talks/jeff-smith-conversation

As part of this year’s Cartoon Crossroads Columbus (CXC), Jeff Smith joins Wex Director of Film/Video David Filipi for a wide-ranging conversation about Bone, his most famous creation; TUKI, his most recent release; and thirty years of Cartoon Books, his independent comic book company.

Columbus-based cartoonist Smith is no stranger to the Wex—he was the subject of a 2008 exhibition cocurated by Filipi—and this conversation promises to be a memorable one about his extensive career.

TUKI: Fight for Fire and TUKI: Fight for Family!, his latest releases, are 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!

A signing in the Wexner Center lower lobby follows the conversation.

This year’s CXC festival features both virtual and in-person events presented by Ohio State’s Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum, Columbus College of Art & Design, Columbus Museum of Art, and Columbus Metropolitan Library.
