Comics for Breakfast: Alumni Artist Talk + Comics Jam

Comics for Breakfast: Alumni Artist Talk + Comics Jam In-Person

What’s life like after art school? Join us for a live comics reading and conversation with three Mason alumni: Lee Strawberry (BFA '19), Ash Smith (BA '22), and Sylvia Rossi (BFA '23)! Attendees will learn a little more about being working cartoonists, and how these creators keep their practice going.

Following the talk, Sylvia Rossi will lead a comics workshop and Risograph printing demonstration from 12-1:30PM.

Registration free but required, no experience needed! Snacks and supplies will be provided.

Sponsored by Mason Libraries, Mason Exhibitions, and University Life.


Lee Strawberry (BFA New Media, 2019) is a Virginia-based artist who uses artwork as a diary to record memories and emotions. View more of Lee's work at leestrawberry.com or @commandurr14 on Instagram.

Ash Smith (BA Drawing, 2022) is an illustrator and comics artist based in Virginia, mixing magic with the mundane. See more of Ash's work at amasmith26.wixsite.com/octopars or on Instagram @octopars.

Sylvia Rossi (BFA Printmaking, 2023) is a Virginia-based cartoonist and printmaker exploring different types of relationships through humor and her own lived experience. Find Sylvia's work on Instagram @veronikaspoons.
