WonderCon Anaheim 2020 special guests Steenz and Trungles have a conversation about each other’s careers and journey into the comics industry. Christina “Steenz” Stewart is a St. Louis-based cartoonist, editor, and professor. She’s the co-creator of Dwayne McDuffie Award-winning graphic novel Archival Quality and is featured in several short story anthologies such as the Eisner and Ignatz Award-winning Elements: Fire, and the new horror anthology Dead Beats. Steenz launched and edited the popular RPG periodical Rolled & Told, creates community-building comics-related programming, and teaches cartooning from the elementary to the collegiate level. Trungles is a comic book artist and illustrator working out of Minnesota. He received his B.A. from Hamline University in 2012, majoring in studio art with a concentration in oil painting and minoring in art history. He has contributed work for Oni Press, Boom! Studios, Limerence Press, and Image Comics. He has a graphic novel coming out from Random House Graphic later this year. In a cozy atmosphere, join them as they discuss juggling a career in cartooning, editorial, and comics education.
