Future comic book artists can gain valuable tips and advice from Texas artists at "comiCulture: From Creation to Consumption." The one-day symposium will highlight Texas artists who have made a name for themselves within the comic book industry, giving attendees an opportunity to learn from their successes. Panels will feature notable artists such as James O'Barr, creator of The Crow; Leroy Brown, illustrator of IceCubes; and ShoNuff! Studios co-founder Terry Parr.

To kick off the symposium, the University of Houston-Clear Lake's Art Gallery and the Office of Student Life are hosting a screening of The Crow on Sept. 20 at 7 p.m., which is followed by a question-and-answer session with O'Barr. The day-long symposium continues on Sept. 21, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Other planned activities during the symposium include portfolio reviews by expert guests, comic book and artist vendors, a pop culture auction and yard sale and an exhibition of works. The Art of Sequential Storytelling exhibition will showcase unique pieces from many of the event's featured artists.
