LASFS: The Panel Continues with artist Jules Rivera

American Lutheran Church

THIS WEEK: Interview with artist Jules Rivera About Jules Rivera: I am a self-made comics and storyboard artist living in Los Angeles. I used to be a defense logistics engineer but left because drawing cartoons is cooler. Now, I create bad girl comics for my weekly cartoon strip Love, Joolz, designs concepts for sci-fi, and teach storyboarding at the college level. When I’m not drawing my little heart out, I go surfing on the weekends because getting punched in the face by the ocean is surprisingly fun. For work inquiries, feel free to contact me at [masked]. About LASFS: The Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society (http://lasfs.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=51&Itemid=148), founded October 27, 1934, is this world's oldest continuously-active science-fiction and fantasy club. This is a public club, everyone is welcome. We would love for you come be part of science fiction history! A bit of history: The Los Angeles Science Fiction League (LASFL) met irregularly during its first year. This changed when Forrest J Ackerman [masked]), a hyper-enthusiastic L.A. fan who was in college in San Francisco at the time, returned home at the beginning of 1936 and quickly became the club's most active member. Bolstered by Forry's efforts, LASFL began meeting regularly every other Thursday in February 1936, increasing to the first four Thursdays of the month in January 1939 and every Thursday in July 1942. He became the nucleus of a group of similarly enthusiastic young fans such as Walter Daugherty, T. Bruce Yerke, Paul Freehafer, Ray Bradbury, and Ray Harryhausen who transformed the LASFL from a tiny literary discussion club into a lively social group. They invited all SF authors visiting or living in Los Angeles to come to the LASFL. Arthur J. Burks, Robert A. Heinlein, Jack Williamson, Henry Kuttner, and other celebrities accepted the invitation. And thus, the club was born! Today: Some of science fiction's most prestigious authors meet weekly or speak at our programs.
