Getting Comics Schooled

On the eve of her voyage to Florida to study at the Sequential Artists Workshop, Cara Bean sits down for a wide-ranging interview with a passing Squirrel.

If you know me, then you know that I am taking one year of my life and devoting my energy toward pursing comics at the Sequential Artist Workshop in Gainesville, Florida. If you don’t know who I am, then let me explain that I have been working as a public high school art teacher for the past nine years. I discovered that teaching and making comics at the same time is crazy difficult to balance. Thankfully my school agreed to allow me to take a year of absence from my job wrangling teenagers so that I may dive headfirst into comics.

I’m going to give comics all of my attention and see what can be gleaned and created in a year’s time. This dispatch will be my way of keeping you informed about what I am studying, and it will also serve as proof that alligators have not eaten me.

This interview between a squirrel and me may better explain my state of mind:

  1. How is it that I’ve lived here for almost a year and you’ve never made me these nachos? Your editor is not happy.
