Karma-Con Part II: Studio Salon
Wednesday, March 21
6 p.m., FreeEnjoy an evening of comics and cocktails and watch the creative process in process! A coalescing of new and old, comic artists and illustrators take a modern view of the ancient Buddhist symbol, the Wheel of Life. Visit the museum to meet artists, Molly Crabapple, Ben Granoff, Josh Neufeld, Michael Kupperman, and Katie Skellyas they create initial sketches, sell and sign their work, and share their processes of creation in an open studio setting.The Wheel of Life: (bhavachakra, srid pa’i ‘khor lo) acts as a representation of samsaric existence for Buddhist practitioners. The Wheel of Life is thought to have been drawn by Shakymuni Buddha himself as a way to simply illustrate the six realms, interdependent existence and the sources of suffering.

Each artist has been given a different segment of the Wheel of Life to reinterpret:

Sanya Glisic: Three Spiritual Poisons & The Dark and Light Path
Ben Granoff: Lord of Death

Rodney Greenblat: Animals
