Ramón K. Pérez & Stephen Christy Discuss "Tale of Sand" Tomorrow Night!

On Tuesday, June 19, 2002 at 9pm Eastern Time, the Creators Workshop will be holding a live, online Book Club discussion on Jim Henson's Tale of Sand with special guests artist Ramón K. Pérez and editor Stephen Christy from Archaia!

Discovered in the Archives of The Jim Henson Company, Tale of Sand is an original graphic novel adaptation of an unproduced, feature-length screenplay written by Jim Henson and his frequent writing partner, Jerry Juhl.

Tale of Sand follows scruffy everyman Mac, who wakes up in an unfamiliar town, and is chased across the desert of the American Southwest by all manners of man and beast of unimaginable proportions. Produced under the complete supervision of the Henson Company, Tale of Sand will allow Henson fans to recognize some of the inspirations and set pieces that appeared in later Henson Company productions.

Adapted by artist Ramón K. Pérez with editor Stephen Christy, Tale of Sand has received FIVE Eisner nominations this year for Best Graphic Album-New, Best Penciller/Inker (Ramón K. Pérez), Best Coloring (Ian Herring and Ramón K. Pérez), Best Lettering (Deron Bennett), and Best Publication Design (Eric Skillman).

Stephen Christy, the Editor-in-Chief of Archaia, will be one of our special guests for the session.

He opened Archaia's Los Angeles office in 2008, after working as Development Manager for Devil's Due Publishing. Prior to his comics career, Christy worked in development and production for shows such as America's Next Top Model and The Real World.

And Stephen will be joined by our other special guest, Ramón K. Pérez. An established cartoonist and illustrator for well over a decade, Ramón's catalogue of work is as diverse as the styles he employs. His clients includes Archaia, Marvel, DC, Dark Horse Comics, Scholastic Canada, Lucasarts, Hasbro, Wizards of the Coast, and many more. Aside from Tale of Sand, recent highlights include Captain America and the First Thirteen, Deadpool Team -Up #883, Dazzler, Resistance, JSA: Classified, numerous covers for Dark Horse Comics' Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and his self-authored and illustrated RIFTS: Machinations of Doom.

There's still time to join us at the Creators Workshop before this great discussion! We hope to see you there.

If you want to make comics, write or draw comics, or improve as a comics creator, you'll find like-minded friends and colleagues in our online workshops and courses. We hope to see you there!
