“Interpersonal Distance Zones”
Nice throwback to when we could be in physical proximity to other humans. 🙃
I have a lot of fun events coming up, including brand new cartooning classes for kids and adults respectively! I think both of these are going to be really fun. I’m also doing a few free online panels and appearances—I will update this page as they are announced publicly.

Storytelling has always been an important and meaningful form of communication. As a storytelling medium, comics use juxtaposed images in an intentional sequence to convey their message in an impactful, visual way. In this fun and engaging 4-session Lab, we will lead you step-by-step through the creative process of creating comics – from making characters, to structuring them into a story, to working through more technical aspects of comic-making. Each Lab session will incorporate a combination of the theory, instructor demos, and in-class activities designed to quickly get you hands-on experience drawing cartoons and comics in your own style. All skill levels are welcome, and each participant will leave having created their very own comic!

A new interactive comic I made for one of my kid’s classes!
As the story goes on, the student participation increases and then at the end they decide what happens.
You can print it out and share it with the kiddos in your life, or even draw it yourself!
