The forty-eighth meeting of the NY Comics & Picture-story Symposium will be held on Monday, June 17, 2013 at 7:00 PM at Bluestockings bookstore, 172 Allen St, New York, NY. Free and open to the public ($5 suggested).
Scheduled Presentation: Winners, Losers and Voyeurs: Drawing at the Race Track. Brooklyn-based artist Jen Ferguson travels to the most exotic of local places, Aqueduct and Belmont race track, to observe, draw, and occasionally blend in with the railbirds and speculators who congregate there. In this talk she will discuss her working style, drawing at the track, and the inspiration that setting has provided. She will also present drawings from her book Railbirds, My LIfe at the Track, and Out of Luck, based on HBO’s series Luck which she currently illustrates.
