Talking comics this summer

July 7, 2007

The school year might be over, but that’s not stopping the Max Finder Mystery Roadshow from hitting the streets this summer. In the coming weeks, I’ll be showing kids how comics are created at these great locations:

Drawing on my work from Max Finder Mystery, young comic fans dive into the world of comics to learn how the writer and illustrator work together to shape a rough idea and turn it into a full colour comic.

I’m really excited about this one, because not only will I be showing young writers how comics are created, I’ll be running a workshop that will let them do some creating of their own. Campers had to apply to be accepted to the camp and, from what I’ve heard, we’ve got a great bunch of young writers this year. Get more info on the camps here [.pdf]

Thanks to both the Toronto Public Library and the Burlington/Brantford Book Camps for inviting me to take part in their summer fun.
