Come to the School of Visual Arts tomorrow night, Friday April 30 for Fresh Meat, the annual student comics convention. Details after the jump.
Fresh Meat is an informal, jam-packed, frantic affair organized for the last few years by teacher Keith Mayerson and Cartoon Allies, the SVA student cartooning group. Undergrad students can sign up for a table and sell/swap minicomics they have made in class or on their own. You'll also find prints and objets d'art, and if you're lucky you'll get a handful of candy to boot.
In addition to all the great students you'll find much of the illustrious SVA faculty lurking around (I aim to be there the first hour, with my family) as well as the occasional surprise celebrity visitor--past years have seen Scott McCloud, Dean Haspiel, and Chris Staros drop by, among many others.
