    kissin' cousins: animation and comics of the '70s,'80s, and '90s with he-man's tom cook, the simpsons' phil ortiz and spider-man's danny fingeroth

    The 1970s-‘90s was a great era for action-adventure and superhero comics and cartoons. Ditto for humor cartoons like Muppet Babies—and a new phenomenon called The Simpsons! Superstar creators—including Jack Kirby, Gil Kane and Steve Gerber—worked in both media. Today, cartoonist-animators Tom Cook (who worked on cartoons including Superfriends, He-Man, The Smurfs and King of the Hill) and Phil Ortiz (who’s worked on The Simpsons cartoon and comics, as well as Muppet Babies and many other characters) and writer-editor Danny Fingeroth (whose credits include Spider-Man and The Avengers comics and the ‘90s FoxKids Spider-Man animated series and TMNT cartoons) discuss what was going on in the parallel worlds of comics and cartoons of the era, their experiences creating characters and stories, and about working with greats such as Hanna, Barbera, Groening, Lee, Claremont and Ditko.

    the diversity variable: incorporation of diversity representation in front and behind the industry

    Diversity is reflected in our everyday society.

But, all too often, traits of old ideology are still very evident in such translations. This will be an open dialogue on the importance of diversity awareness and the need for such applications in all components within industry roles.

    out of their shells: drawing teenage mutant ninja turtles & more with guy gilchrist, billy martin & clinton hobart

    Guy Gilchrist was hand-selected to create Jim Henson’s Muppets comic strip that ran in over 660 papers from 1981 to 1986. Throughout the years, he has set his hand to such notable cartoons as The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Looney Tunes, Tom & Jerry, Tiny Toons, Jim Henson's Fraggle Rock, The Pink Panther, Minnie Mouse, and was instrumental in the creation of The Muppet Babies! Gilchrist took over the iconic Nancy comic strip in 1995 and has been drawing it ever since! Billy Martin is the lead guitarist and keyboard player for the top-selling band Good Charlotte. As an artist, his most recent work can be found on the covers of IDW’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: New Animated Adventures. Clinton T. Hobart is a Licensed Disney Fine Artist. His recent releases include paintings based on Beauty And The Beast, Alice In Wonderland, and Tangled. In addition to painting for Disney, Hobart also paints still-lifes, portraits, and ocean wave paintings. Together, these three will show you how they draw Turtles and other iconic characters—and how you can, too—and will tell stories of their amazing careers. Moderated by Danny Fingeroth (TMNT animated series writer).

    assassination classroom screening episodes 1-4, recommended ages 13+

    Earth is threatened by an enormously powerful monster who destroyed 70% of the Moon with its power, permanently rending it into the shape of a crescent. The monster claims that within a year, Earth will also be destroyed by him, but he offers mankind a chance to avert this fate. In class 3-E at Kunugigaoka Junior High School, he starts working as a homeroom teacher where he teaches his students not only regular subjects, but the ways of assassination. The Japanese government promises a reward of ¥10 billion (i.e. 100 million USD) to whoever among the students succeeds in killing the monster, whom they have named "Koro-sensei". However, this has proven to be an almost impossible task, as not only does he have several superpowers at his disposal, including the capacity of moving at Mach 20, but he is also the best teacher they've ever had, helping them not only to improve their grades, but also their individual skills and perspectives for the future.
