Midterms are approaching (already??). SEQALab has a YouTube page with some great tutorials by alum Ricky Bryant. Also, podcaster Donny Cates will be reviewing books that YOU choose. all you have to do is become a fan of us on Facebook and write us which books you’d like him to read and review on our wall. On with the news!

The iPad was announced today. The comics blogs have been going crazy, as well as the tech, design, etc. communities. Will this really be the explosive game-changer in the comics industry?

Education | Peter Gutierrez includes alum Eleanor DavisSecret Science Alliance in his list of recommended comic books for the classroom. [School Library Journal]

Interview | Alum S.L. Gallant majored in Illustration at the Atlanta College of Art before it was purchased by the Savannah College of Art and Design. He illustrates comics, and talks about how pursuing a job in the industry got him to where he is today.

I just got comfortable drawing for a living, and then I stopped pursuing my dream for a long time. Brian Stelfreeze once told me the only I wouldn’t get work in comics was if I stopped trying to. He was right about that, and a lot of other things.

Meanwhile… | The latest SEQA-related news

Posted on 12 January 2010 by admin

It’s the first Meanwhile of the year! One of the biggest buzzes for comics in 2010 seems to be digital distribution. Not only have people been talking about comics shifting from print to online, e-readers and color tablets will be game-changers in the publishing industry. If SCAD’s industrial design program’s involvement with the development of a tablet is any indication of a bright future for the technology, then I say to all SEQAhomies to start saving up money now, because the tablet is going to be wonderful for comics.

Resources | Webcomics.com has recently switched to a subscription model. Many SCAD students have been previous users of the website and its free content, but it looks like the resource is no more, unless $30 is paid. It’s sad to see it gone, as it was helpful to some of the students that were honestly interested in webcomics. $30 a year might actually be quite a bargain, ofcourse, but it was still nice to have something that costed nothing on top of our tuition. Meanwhile, we hope that the podcast remains free.

Funding | Alum Joey Weiser is self-publishing his second graphic novel, “Cavemen in Space”, and needs help in the form of dollars. Learn how you can also win prizes from your donation! [Tragic-Planet]

Interviews | Graduate Kel McDonald talks about collecting her webcomic in print. You should support her fund over at Kickstarter! [Sequential Tart]

Jobs | Alum Ploy Rojanavipat isa production artist for the new FX animated series “Archer”, which premieres this Thursday!
