Stretch is a one day graphic design and illustration conference held at Marywood University. It's a chance to take a break, stretch your mind, and be entertained and inspired by award-winning designers and illustrators.

Our featured presenters this year are:

Arlen Schumer

— award-winning comic book-style illustrator for the advertising and editorial markets, a member of The Society of Illustrators and a recognized expert on American popular culture – ABC-TV’s 20/20 called him “one of the country’s preeminent authorities on comics and culture,” and Comic Book Artist magazine said he was “one of the more articulate and enthusiastic advocates of comic book art in America.” His comic book art history book, The Silver Age of Comic Book Art (Archway Publishing), won the Independent Book Publishers Award for Best Popular Culture Book.
