Columbus Metropolitan Library Teen Reads Week

10/14/14 - 10/15/14 | Columbus, OH


Hello, Ohio! I’m visiting you soon! This October, I’ll be running two workshops on how to make comics. Now I have to warn you, making comics is a very time-consuming process. There’s no way we can get from beginning to end in an

hour-long session. But, if you come, I’ll give you an overview of how I go about making a comic, and get you pointed in the right direction.
