Upcoming Speaking Engagement

From the press release:

The Art Institute of California - San Francisco has invited Tommy Roddy, the creator and writer of Pride High, to speak on self-publishing independent comics. Roddy will detail both the creative and technical processes involved in the production of Pride High, from early design issues to choosing a printing press.

"As an avid reader of comics, few things have been as satisfying as creating my own. I'm excited to speak with art students who are looking to make that leap from comic book fan to creator," says Roddy.

Organized by Oculama, the Art Institute's comic book club, the talk is scheduled for Wednesday, August 29, from 12-1pm at the Main Gallery, 1170 Market Street in San Francisco. Admission is free and open to the public.

Pride High follows the adventures of a gay-straight alliance at a school for super-powered youth. Please visit for more details.

The Art Institute of California - San Francisco is a leader in career-oriented education in the fields of Design, Media Arts, and Fashion. For more information visit
