See also

This Saturday, San Francisco’s Cartoon Art Museum will be hosting their cartoonist in residence for the month of December.

The artist is Katari Sporrong, and she is a comic illustrator originally from Sonoma, California. She is also a 2011 graduate of Vermont’s Bennington College, and at one point received a internship at the Cartoon Art Museum. She has also self-published four books, three of which are now virtuallyout of print. Her fourth and most recent book, focuses on one of art’s most prominent and controversial artists of the 1980s.

Titled SPEAK UP David Wojnarowicz, it is a full-color comic book that tells the story of the gay New York artist, who works included Fire (1987), and was also known for his activism against AIDS (which he would succumb to in 1992), censorship, and homophobia. The book also talks about Sporrong herself finding her voice as an artist, drawing inspiration from Wojnarowicz’s art and activism.

The event on Saturday begins at 1pm, and last until 3pm. Sporrong will be on hand in discussing her work, and talking to visitors. The event is free and open to the public. A little preview of her book Speak Up, can be seen on her website sorrykatari.com, which also can provide more information on her visit to the Cartoon Art Museum.
