Orpheus Collar, a 2004 graduate of the George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology, will present an artist's talk for students and sign copies of his new book in the Carver Center Gallery, 938 York Road, Towson, on Wednesday, Oct. 10, noon to 2 p.m.
The event is part of a school initiative to focus on cultural outreach, and also kicks off an exhibition of Collar's art in the school's gallery — which is on display through Oct. 30.
Collar currently lives in Los Angeles and is a storyboard artist. He has worked on comic book titles such as "The Amazing Spider Man," "Conan," "Ultimate X-Men" and "Batman: Confidential." His most recent project is a graphic novel adaptation of the book "The Kane Chronicles, Book One: Red Pyramid," published Oct. 2.
