Join cartoonist Adam Griffiths and creative duo Kendra & Kat for a live comics reading and discussion of storytelling, community, and collaboration in comics on Thursday, January 30, from 3:30-5pm in Fenwick Library 2001. Moderated by Christopher Kardambikis (Asst. Professor, Printmaking), this conversation is presented as part of the exhibition D(C)MV Comics, currently on view in Fenwick Gallery.
Adam Griffiths is a cartoonist, illustrator, and artist living in Takoma Park, MD, just outside of Washington, DC. He earned a BA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2004. Adam’s work has been exhibited around DC at transformer, Flashpoint Gallery, The Fridge, Hillyer Art Space, International Studio and Curatorial Program (ISCP), Pleasant Plains Workshop, Rhizome DC, School 33, and Washington Project for the Arts (WPA).
Kendra & Kat have been making comics together for 8 years, and plotting over cupcakes far longer. With comics and zines that run the gamut from queer space pirate shenanigans to illustrated cookbooks inspired by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, they are driven by sparkles and fun. Their work has been featured in anthologies such as Coven and Purity, and they’ve been a staple in the DC-area comic scene since tabling at DC Zinefest back in 2012.
