Kids Read Comics Convention - June 2015

Ok! this is newsworthy for me....

     I am trying something very different this year.  Turning a hobby into something more.

I found an event in Ann Arbor a few years ago that is really quite unique and wonderful. It mixes a love of art, drawing and storytelling together with kids.  

Kids Read Comics

is a two day event held at the Ann Arbor Library in June 2015.

      I will have table for the first time this year. My kids and I will be sharing stories and comics I have done as a volunteer Artist throughout their grade school experience.  I hope to be posting more often as the event nears.  I am working on a story from our 2nd graders and a great teacher at Bird School in Plymouth. (more to come on that)

Save the date:

Poster for Kids

I drew a number of ideation sketches for a bird poster for the 2nd graders.

We had fun drawing birds.  I thought the simple circular shapes would be easier for the kids to handle. I got mixed results in the class. The kids have trouble experimenting with shapes before adding detail. Still working out systems....having fun...
