Post: Comic Book Mania 2014

This past weekend I was at the Gail Borden Library in Elgin, IL for Comic Book Mania. It was the fifth year of this show and the attendance just keeps on growing. A lot of great comic creators showed up including Art Baltazar, Serena Guerra, and Hilary Barta. They had face painting for kids and writer pal, Russell Lissau, and I did a panel for kids on Making Comics. It was a fun comic show and it's always a great time chatting with kids about comics. See you next year!

Post: Kids Read Comics 2014

And we're back from Kids Read Comics! I had such a great time at this year's show.

Mike and I had a fantastic turn out for our Quick Draw, which was actually at the Ann Arbor Arts Center a block or two down from the libary.

Foo and I even got to shoot some videos for Camp Pencil Point with the creative team behind Scratch 9! (Rob Worley & Joshua Buchanan)

Thanks to Jerzy, Dan Mishkin, and the entire AADL crew for putting on another fantastic show.
