If you're around Sydney this month, don't forget this. I don't want to be standing up there with my arse hanging out and nobody in the audience. My part is a free event, but go and book your seat now (link below).

EDDIE CAMPBELL ON THE LOVELY HORRIBLE STUFF

It possible to make money out of comics?

The subject is money. As explained with no authority whatsoever by a man who draws pictures for a living. Featuring unpublished illustrations, histrionics, humorous asides and totally useless information, including how Campbell became incorporated just so he could write and draw Batman, and what went wrong with that; how his accountant goes to work in a sarong and bare feet because he fancies himself as an artist. As well as Campbell's weeklong visit to the mysterious tropical island of Yap, to get the inside story of the ancient stone money for his next book.
Venue: Studio
Dates: Sun 21 Aug
Time: 12pm
Register Now!


Also on the bill:

ROBERT CRUMB’S OLD TIME JUKEBOX: a selection of old-time tunes chosen by RC will be played by Mic Conway and his Captain Matchbox band with Crumb on mandolin. I think this event is 45 bucks.

STUDIO / FRI 19 AUG / 8.30PM FRI 19 AUG

And on Sunday, Crumb is interviewed on the concert stage by Gary Groth.
complete program.

2012, summer probably.

It's not like the old days, where you finished it in July to get it out by September.

bring 'em back I say!

Too bad I'll miss this event, especially since you're going to talk about your MONEY book. I've been curious about how it turns out. Greetings to family, hope you've had a great weekend. Thanks again for last year and all :)

Hm. The problem with asking the question "Is it possible to make money outta doing comics", those of us who HAVE made money outta comics have to look at what you said here:

Which dovetails nicely with what Colleen said recently during her masterclass,

and then compare that to what has been said (or not said) recently.
