Art Talk: Nationally known cartoonist visits Laurel

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

A native Mississippian and nationally known cartoonist was in Laurel on Wednesday talking about his life in comics. Tim Fielder, who has worked for Marvel comics and video game designers, is known for his unique animation style and artwork.

Fielder was at the Lauren Rogers Museum of Art talking to the public about the process of producing comic books and how he got involved in the business. Those who attended were treated to a hands-on demonstration of cartooning and computer animation.
 
George Bassie, director of the LRMA, said that bringing someone who has his roots in Mississippi and so well known was something the museum was fortunate to be able to do.
 
“As you would imagine someone who creates comic books has all these wonderful comic book characters, probably have wonderful personalities and
Tim does as well, he’s almost larger than life.” Bassie said. “It usually comes out in his artwork and how he designs books and how he creates characters for
the comic books and for those animated series, really his personality comes out in them.”
 
Fielder met with attendees after the demonstration where he signed copies of his work.

William Carey came from destruction to full restoration. Sophomore Cassidy Monk says, “The lord has just delivered us from such a tragic event..."

    The campus of William Carey was calm as the clock struck midnight and the date turned to January 21, 2017. Then-freshman soccer player Taylor Gautreaux turned in at about 1 a.m. She would be awoken two hours later to the sounds of a violent tornado just outside her dorm room wall.
