Kids Comics L.A. Wrap-Up

We’d like to send a super huge THANKS to everyone who came out for Kids Comics L.A. this past weekend!

Kids of all ages hung out with us and talked comics. Chris lead a drawing seminar and created a couple of characters based on kid’s suggestions including Marc Pig (the angry spaceman), H.A.N.K. (Marc’s dog/fish space-pet), and the evil Dr. VonShoe (a horse, skull, lobster mix with a shark tail!).

In the second seminar, Chris and I collaborated with everyone in the audience as we all created a super fun and goofy space adventure for Chris to draw. What fun!

Here’s the final product:

If you can’t read it, in the last panel Dr. VonShoe gets one more glorious cheese pun in by saying, “I’m so Provolonely!”

Here are some of the fantastic kids who participated! Everyone was drawing and throwing out story suggestions at the same time. I’m amazed with their creativity, willingness to toss out ideas, and sheer energy that they brought to the event. What a blast!
