I am honored to be invited to speak at a private event at The Kubert School, its Inaugural Founder's Day to celebrate the history & legacy of JOE KUBERT on Friday, September 16th! Kubert entered the comic book field in the 1940s as a teenager, and went on to become one of the legendary figures of the medium, whose style is unmistakable and unforgettable, the most expressive pen-and-brush comic book artist of his generation. Can't wait to present that to The Kubert School's students & faculty! www.kubertschool.edu
Come to the Art on A Gallery in NYC's East Village & see a wonderful group show (with art by greats like Dean Haspiel & Reilly Brown), curated by Art on A's Rik Rocket, until June 30th; here's me in front of my 3 pieces! http://www.artonagallery.com
"2015-16 marks the 75th Anniversary year of the legendary cartoonist Will Eisner’s immortal character, The Spirit! Join Arlen Schumer, writer/illustrator/designer and comic book historian (The Silver Age of Comic Book Art, Archway Publishing), as he presents a Master’s Class on Eisner using The Spirit as its primer: a big-screen retrospective overview of Eisner’s magnum opus, and all of its revolutionary graphic tropes and storytelling techniques—character design, staging, lighting, lettering, panel and page design—that make Eisner the D. W. Griffith of comic book art! "
