The Cartoonist's League of Absurd Washingtonians presents an informative and fun panel about what it takes to be a working artist, hosted by Jennevieve Schlemmer. We will cover best practices for creating a schedule, finding consistency, pricing your work, balancing your books, motivating yourself, and creating your own creative community. Panel includes amazing local artists Mindy Barker, Michaela Eaves, Steve Garvin, and Mark Monlux. CLAW meets the fourth Wednesday of every month at King's Books.
Mindy Barker is a muralist who wrangles color and wrangles lines. All for, what she likes to call, "my interventions of urban spaces'.
Michaela Eaves currently focuses on graphite illustrations where animals and creatures cross paths with fairy tales. Occasionally, some of these turn into watercolor and gouache paintings or books.
Five years ago, Steve Garvin left corporate accounting to rediscover his creative side. Today, he's a rebranding expert who helps creative thinkers plan a business they love by tapping into their hidden gold.
Mark Monlux, Grand PooBah of Monlux Illustration, is freelance illustrator with decades of experience. Since 1985 his art had been on everything from magazines to ice cream cartons. He's currently doing a lot of graphic recording, storyboarding and whiteboard videos.
