We are thrilled to announce illustrator and comic artist Jordan Crane will be joining us for Short Run on November 4, 2017! As well as being a special guest at the festival, Jordan also designed this year’s festival poster! His work is noted for well observed narratives that focus on the vulnerability and mystery of the human experience. Crane’s immaculate sense of design, powerful cartooning, and striking posters have had a profound effect on alternative comics and the way comics are perceived as an art form. We have followed his work for years, from “The Last Lonely Saturday” to recently, the multi-issue series “Uptight” (Fantagraphics).
