- Frank Santoro: From Grid to Spread 03/17/2014
Pittsburgh-based cartoonist Frank Santoro will deliver a lecture about his recent book Pompeii, focusing on the role of composition and layout in this modern tale of art, love, and rivalry set during the destruction of the ancient Roman city of Pompeii in 79CE. In this intimate presentation of his working methods, Santoro will expand on his approach to stretching the grid to the two-page spread and explain how his compositional method is inspired by modal jazz and timing – and how he is able to compose visually with harmonics.
Frank Santoro: From Grid to Spread is an event organized by the Humanities Institute Pilot Working Group Rough Draft, led by Dani Leventhal (OSU Art) and Richard Fletcher (OSU Classics) and co-sponsored by the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum.
This event is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. To ensure the availability of space, please RSVP to email@example.com if you plan to attend and mention the “Frank Santoro event.”
