SF’s Cartoon Art Museum Presents Mike Dringenberg

See also

Coming to the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco this Saturday is comic artist Mike Dringenberg. He is the person who inked the first issues of the comic book Sandman, and in celebration of its 25th anniversary, the museum is hosting a special evening where Dringenberg will be discussing his tenure on the comic book, along with Ryan Graff, the co-curator of the Sandman retrospective Grains of Sand, currently on view with the exhibition catalog coming soon.

There will surely be a lot to talk about in this special evening. In addition to inking the first issues of Sandman, Dringenberg took over as penciler after Sam Kieth left the book. He illustrated some of the series’ most memorable issues including the eighth issue titled “The Sound of Her Wings”, which introduced the Sandman’s sister, Death. He has also designed several of the major characters in the Sandman series, settled the book’s artistic tone with understated, realistic style, and created the poster that depicted "The Endless", a prominently feature on the TV show Roseanne, and was considered to be one if not the most widely seen Sandman illustration.

Tickets for this event is sold on a sliding scale, ranging from general admission starting at $25 up to $300 for adding on a bookplate, two signatures, and dinner with Dringenberg himself. Tickets can be purchased at https://guestlistapp.com/events/213690. You can also log on to www.cartoonart.org for more information.
