Words, Pictures, and Ragnarok:
Comics as the Trickster's Tool

A Pre-Conference Keynote Talk by Jason Lutes

4:00pm

Silver Maple Ballroom
Dudley H. Davis Center
University of Vermont
 

free and open to the public


Words and pictures were born from the same source, but grew apart over millennia. The medium of comics brings them back together and reminds us—just as Loki and Eshu and Bugs Bunny do—that the boundaries imposed by humans upon the world are porous and prone to collapse. A crackpot rumination on the relationship between letterforms, representational drawing, and the twilight of the Norse gods.

Jason Lutes is a cartoonist, editor, art director, game designer, and educator who teaches a two-year MFA program at the Center for Cartoon Studies in White River Junction, Vermont. He is the author of Berlin, a graphic novel which chronicles the lives of everyday people during the rise of fascism in Weimar Germany.
