Here’s my chat with Morgan Kagesheongai at WhitCAF 2018. Podcast is available on Apple Podcasts and player.FM
Morgan is a producer of comics, zines, fan art prints and runs Left-to-Right Studios. She’s also an Anishinaabe Ojibwe member of the Whitefish River First Nations.
During chat, Morgan talked about her creative work including teaching students the fundamentals about art. One of her current projects is an anthology of up-and-coming artists. She spoke about her studio plus suggestions and efforts to promote art in general. Morgan talked about Concept Comics a seasonal magazine that she plans to promote at future events. She also spoke about opportunities (or lack thereof) for indigenous artists.
