Carleton to Host the Munro Beattie Lecture: Inkwell’s End

Acclaimed Canadian Cartoonist Seth to Discuss Career

March 15, 2021


Carleton University’s Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and the Department of English Language and Literature are set host the 2020-21 Munro Beattie Lecture entitled, Inkwell’s End by the legendary Canadian cartoonist and designer Seth.

Seth’s work is often tinged with nostalgia for an age that may have never existed, and his talk will incorporate images from throughout his career and from his childhood interest in comics.

This talk should provide a well of inspiration for illustrators, designers, typographers, and anyone else interested in communicating visually. Find out all the details about the March 20th talk here!
