Description: 
Local illustrator and comic book artist Miguel C. Hernandez will talk about how his journey creating comics and graphic novels furthered his interest in design and marketing. Miguel will show us how his Studio JS continues to learn and elevate their understanding of composition and storytelling. He will also share how work is finalized and presented using graphic design in visual media formats like books and merchandise.

CDPUG will host this meeting as a webinar via Zoom in our effort to provide graphic designers social engagement and informational programming during these challenging times of social distancing. Attendance is limited to the first 100 attendees.

Bio: Miguel C. Hernandez is a native Cleveland illustrator and comic artist. Born in the Mamoru Oshii animation era, Miguel acquired a passion for Japanese animation. Much of his work depicts moments of aspect-to-aspect sequences to provide readers optimal perspective and the ability to explore a submersive world. Inspired by his love of nature and the natural world, Miguel‘s work also infuses elements of animation with cinema to emphasize Japanese storytelling techniques.
