Comics Camp!

I had the best time teaching a comics class this week to 6th and 7th graders through a summer camp at the LVAA.  We created a group comics anthology:

To get the creativity flowing, each day we played drawing games and did some collaborative comic jam activities.

Inspired by The Daily Monster, we created Ink Blot characters out of dripped India Ink:

As you can see, we were very serious all of the time:

Louisville Magazine- June Illustrations

I had three illustrations in this month’s Louisville Magazine. The first is a piece celebrating Louisville’s wonderful parks. Thanks to Nick and Elliott Thieneman for being my original models before I changed my idea!
