Graphic Author and Alum Illustrates “Meteoric” Year
Graphic novelist and SAIC alum and faculty member Jeffery Brown (MFA 2002, Painting and Drawing) “charts his meteoric year” in a full page colored comic strip featured on page 40 of the April issue of Chicago magazine. The cartoonist’s career “hit light speed” last April following the release of his “megasuccessful” children’s book, Darth Vader and Son. Not long after, Brown completed a sequel and spinoff, and also made his “screenwriting debut” with the film Save the Date. This month marks the release of Brown’s newest book Vader’s Little Princess, published by Chronicle Books. The author also earned “a plum spot” at Chicago’s comic expo C2E2 from April 26–28.
