Head of Visual Development at Marvel Studios, Ryan Meinderding, a Notre Dame alum, will give a lecture on his work with comic book and film designs.
“It’s like a dream come true,” said Meinderding in a 2012 interview with www.comicbookmovie.com. “When I was drawing Captain America when I was a kid, I never dreamed about being able to do it for a living and doing it for movies.”
Since graduating from Notre Dame in 1999, Meinderding has worked on some of the most iconic feature films of the last decade. He’s credited as an illustrator on the first two Iron Man movies, visual development supervisor on Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Avengers and was the head of visual development on Iron Man 3.
Additionally, Meinderding worked on film adaptation of The Watchmen and the blockbuster hit of the past summer, Guardians of the Galaxy. His behind-the-scenes work from these iconic series will be on display outside the talk in the Cregg Commons.
The lecture, “From Notre Dame to Marvel: The Art of Ryan Meinderding,” is scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday, Dec. 1 in room 226 of West Lake Hall, west of the Rockne Memorial. The lecture is open to the public.
Meinderding will do a demonstration during the lecture. An artist reception will be held immediately following the talk.
