Artist Alley allows librarians to meet face-to-face with artists and illustrators who create comics, games, and graphic novels! Original pieces of work are auctioned in a silent auction for ALA’s scholarship fund. Here are some of this year’s participants:
- Paul Pope / Twitter —- Paul Pope’s first graphic novel for kids, Battling Boy, comes out in October 2013. The author of Batman: Year 100, Heavy Liquid, and 100%, Pope is known for his high-energy artwork and action packed genre-bending storytelling.“Ink drawing in memoriam for Haggard West”; India ink on board; 14”x17” - Paul Pope
- Alexis E. Fajardo/ Twitter / Facebook —- Alexis E. Fajardo is a student of the classics— whether Daffy Duck or Damocles— and has created a unique blend of the two in Kid Beowulf. Lex has taught cartooning throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and currently resides in Santa Rosa, where, when not penning Kid Beowulf, he works for PEANUTS at the Charles M. Schulz Studio.

Book Expo America featured Paul Pope in their In Your Space series of interviews that explore the studios of creatives. (Click the link to watch the video).
If you listen closely, about three minutes into the interview, you might get a kick.
Ray Manzarek with X. Besides being in The Doors, Manzarek produced the 1st four X albums, worked with Echo and The Bunnymen, and backed Iggy Pop. R.I.P., Ray.
I don’t think there has ever been a Ray Manzarek of Comics like there has been a Jim Morrison, but Ray was cool and laid a lot of great melodies and rhythm out. Listen to a Doors album today to pay respects.
