Join MSU Professor and Cartoonist Ryan Claytor as he discusses his 20-year history of self-publishing comics, how to make a sustainable career in the arts, and how you can best move forward with your own creative projects. On this stop of his book tour, Claytor shares artwork, ideas, and concepts from his most ambitious publication to date, One Bite at a Time, a brand-new, oversized, hardcover art book featuring two decades of his work in comics, illustration, and design with a heavy focus on pulling back the curtain to reveal the creative process behind making each piece.

Ryan Claytor is the Coordinator of the Comic Art and Graphic Novel Minor and Assistant Professor at Michigan State University where he teaches Comics Studio courses and spearheaded the development of the interdisciplinary Comics Minor between the Art and English departments. Claytor's achievements have included six Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo Prizes and two nominations for the Ringo Comic Industry Award. As a creator, Claytor is known for his award-winning, self-published, non-fiction comics, including his autobiographical series "And Then One Day", as well as his collaborative work on "Coin-Op Carnival: Electrifying Tales of Mechanical Contraptions” and “A Hunter’s Tale.” Claytor's international client list includes companies such as Moleskine, Stern Pinball, Verizon Wireless, Mr. Jones Watches, and more. Other artistic pursuits include designing neon signs, watches, fancy pancakes, and cross-stitching.
