A Presentation by Mark Siegel
With personal anecdotes from various projects as an author, artist, and editor, Mark Siegel offers a spirited look at living a creative life, in a world mostly driven by profit. Keeping oneself intact and generative, and above all human—these and other themes run through this popular workshop.
Mark Siegel is the author and illustrator of several award-winning picture books and graphic novels, including Oskar and the Eight Blessings, winner of the National Jewish Book Award. He is the author and illustrator of the NY Times bestseller Sailor Twain, or the Mermaid in the Hudson, and most recently the team project 5 Worlds, an epic science fiction series for young readers.
Mark is also the Editorial and Creative Director of First Second Books, Macmillan's acclaimed publisher of graphic novels. In just over a decade so far, First Second has garnered an unmatched array of literary awards—including for the original works of National Book Award Finalist and Printz Winner Gene Luen Yang, and Caldecott Honorees Jillian and Mariko Tamaki’s This One Summer.
He has given workshops and lectures all over the country, to art and writing programs, at Comic Cons, and major animation studios including Disney, Pixar, Blue Sky, and Dreamworks.
As usual, the talk is free.
