Julia Wertz was born in the San Francisco bay area in 1982. She is the author/illustrator of the unfortunately titled autobiographical graphic novels The Fart Party vol 1 and vol 2, Drinking at the Movies, The Infinite Wait and Other Stories and the upcoming Museum of Mistakes: The Fart Party Omnibus. She currently lives in Brooklyn, NY, where she used to make comics at Pizza Island (RIP) but currently she’s focusing on a project for Adventure Bible School, her blog/photos about urban exploring.
EVENTS/AVAILABILITY: (I said as if I was SO BUSY)
If you’d like me to visit your college/school/workshop, please contact me and if I can, I’d be more than happy to visit. I have prepared different lectures/workshops for students of varying ages, which address topics like small publishers vs big publishers vs DIY, how to “write” artwork (text and art as a symbiotic relationship) and basically everything I learned about making a living through comics during the last decade of figuring it all out my damn self, usually the hard way. I also have activities for kids, involving simple, four panel, comic storytelling. I prefer doing college lectures in person, however Skype can arranged as well.
For comics events/readings, yeah, I’m usually totally up for it so shoot me an email. I do slide shows and/or mic storytelling kinda stuff.
Questions and love/hate mail can be sent directly to me at juliajwertz(at)gmail(dot)com.
