On the Room Status
Not so urgent Update
I was talking with Mason earlier today. We were going to try to talk to Jim Hellman today about using the design room on the 1st floor of McKnight (most of the other possible rooms are being used on either Friday or Saturday). Afterwards I was going to distribute fliers to the appropriate businesses and try to spread the word. The plan was met with two hitches; Jim left early today, and the person who was going to give me a ride to the businesses was ill.
Given the last minute nature of any advertising we do, it's very doubtful that we'll get very many more people than we have already. Me and Mason both agreed that we'd pretty much just make it a club activity this year.

The 24 hour comics day even has been moved from Saturday 24/Sunday 25 to Friday 23/Saturday 24. The 24 hour comics day at WSU will now be held on Friday 23/Saturday 24. It will begin sometime in the afternoon on Friday and will be in one of the downstairs classrooms in the McKnight buiding. We are currently seeking confirmation on the specific rooms.
We will probably end up scanning artwork in the computer lab on Saturday and compiling the commemorative publication using the scanned images.
We are still open to non-WSU students attending the 24 hour comics day event, but request that they RSVP ASAP so that we know they will be attending. We will need to have a faculty member in the building during the 24 hours if there are non-WSU students involved. More creators, and a chance to bug the faculty; sounds like a win-win situation to me.
In addition to sharing the building with the people from the Print Fair, we will also be sharing it with people from the ASMAT exhibit. Visit http://www.wichita.edu/spiritjourneys
for more informaiton. The Friday reception costs $50 to attend, but there is a free lunch on Saturday.
There has been some crazy talk about going to the Ren Faire afterwards. I think it sounds fun, in a crazy kind of way. Anyone else interested? Current Mood: determined

Hey, send your submissions to editor@ sequentialartistsgroup.z zn.com just without the spaces...try to keep the file sizes as low as you can without sacrificing the quality. Thanks.
It's Friday, so there is another SAG meeting coming up in a couple of hours. To my understanding, there are essentially three big items on the agenda; official recognition, the pulication, and 24 hour comics day. Mason will be bringing up to speed on the progress of recognition (almost complete). As the chief advocate of the 24 hour comics day, I guess that ends up in my territory.24 Hour Comics DayLatest news
: I've been talking with Rob. It turns out that the Print Faire is going to be using the atreum on both Saturday the 24th and Sunday the 25th. Right now, we're going to see if we will have access to downstairs rooms. We may end up on the second floor, but it will hopefully still work either way.Advertising
: The biggest downside to not knowing where we're going to be is that it makes advertising a bit trickier. We want to get Ads out there so that people know about the event, but we can't put down place and time. This will lower attendance. I'm going to try to spin it, something along the lines of "Last minute planning for last minute comics; call xxx-xxxx for more information"
. Advertising locations would include across campus, Prairie Dog, Agents of Comics, and maybe art supply stores or other public venues.Attendance
: Right now I'm aiming for between 5 and 10 people showing up. This would include club members. Other sources of attendance possibly include my high school contacts, as well as various members of the community. There used to be a professor in the WSU SAD who was a cartoonist; I'm going to see if he'd be interested in making a cameo. Current Mood: exhausted

It looks like the WSU Sequential Artists Group now has a quasi-official web-community. We briefly discussed different hosts, but it was agreed that live-journal was both the most user friendly and least commercial (ie no pop-up ads), so here we are. Like anything else done quickly, things may be subject to change, but I hope that this will be something that sticks around. This could be a good thing.
So, in the spirit of the betterment of ourselves as a group, let's get the most out of this that we can. This is an excellent place for questions, comments, and any other kinds of discussions about group activities.
There are a couple things on the group's plate right now that I'd like to remind people of. First, we have the first publication coming up. We're going to try to get that done in the next couple of weeks, maybe devote a chunk of a meeting to formatting (I still advocate one person doing the preliminary formatting for the first issue, with group adjustments being made as we approach the next issue; bureaucracies tend to slow this sort of thing down).
Second reminder is the Membership Book. Nothing been done about this yet. Not the biggest priority, but something to keep in mind.
Third is the 24 hour comics day. We need to get ahold of Rob ASAP and confirm with him that we're going to do that. We also need to get advertising up in the next week or so (as soon as we have the confirmation from Rob). Publicity is our friend.
Along the same note, we should probably make some more ads advertising our group. I really like Mason's stuff, but it's a lot of work to do a new ad every week; I think we should make a 'generic' poster saying that we meet every week, same time, same place.
I'm going to type up some of my personal theories about how I think the group could work best, see what everyone else thinks; this would be a good place to see where people stand without clogging up meetings. Current Mood: determined
Welcome, one and all to the Livejournal home of the WSU Sequential Artist's Group!
Come in, take a seat, look around... but don't go touchin' my three beautiful robot daughters...
If you've been invited to this group and don't know why, it's probably because you're a member of the sequential artist's group (and don't know it!).
Anyway, that's my spiel, I'll let it lie for now.
