Greetings, humble Inkstudians! I’m Caitlin McGurk, indomitable zinestress and head librarian at The Schulz Library of The Center for Cartoon Studies. As many have already recapped, this years TCAF festival was absolutely unforgettable. One of the highlights for me was the opportunity I was given to moderate a panel with Adrian Tomine, Jillian Tamaki, and Lorenzo Mattoti on comic artists who also work as illustrators. Although that’s a bit of a broad, vague, and essential description of all of us in the business- we were able to hit on everything from using time and motion in comics, to the bureacracries of dealing with editors vs. art directors. The choice of panelists made it especially dynamic: Jillian- who typically defines herself as an illustrator, Adrian- who is without question a cartoonist at heart but whose work for The New Yorker reaches a much broader audience as an illustrator, and Lorenzo- whose work visually identifies as fine art illustration but has been conditioned to work quite well sequentially.
