Post for MSU Comics Forum 2018 by Lucy Knisley

Lucy Knisley (’09) is the Creator Keynote Speaker for the Michigan State University Comics Forum 2018. Last year, our very own James Sturm (Market Place) was the Creator Keynote Speaker. The Forum is a multi-day event every year for scholars, creators, and fans of comics. As the creator keynote, Lucy got to draw the poster for the event.

Lucy brings a lot of experiences to talk about. Since 2008, she has published five graphic novels: French Milk, Relish, An Age of License, Displacement, and Something New. All are autobiographical. She has also drawn the children’s book Margaret and the Moon, written by Dean Robbins, about how Margaret Hamilton calculate the first moon landing. And still to come are New Kid about Lucy’s high-school years, Kid Gloves about becoming a parent, and You Are New, a children’s book about what babies can and cannot do.

The event is currently open for applications to the artist alley and panel discussions, until December 10. The Scholar Keynote Speaker at this even will be Diana Schutz (editor of Sin City, Usagi Yojimbo, and Concrete).  The Creator Keynote Address is the evening of February 23.
