Kids Read Comics and Teens Read Comics
Kids Read Comics and Teens Read Comics are a shared, free event to explore and celebrate the awesomeness of comics. Kids, teens, teachers, librarians, and comic artists gather at KRC for two fun days of drawing games to meet the artists, hands-on workshops to make comics, visit the roaming artist alley and a bunch of other great events.
I'm honored and excited to be part of the 2011 Kids Read Comics! I'll be providing two workshops in addition to participating in Artist Alley!
Saturday from 4:15 pm – 5:15 pm I'll be putting on the all ages workshop:
Turning Jokes into Comics: Laughing Yeti Monkey Spaghetti
People call comics “funny pages” for a good reason. Comics are a great way to tell jokes! In this interactive drawing session, cartoonist Rob Stenzinger will share a process for making jokes into one-, two- or three-panel comics. He’ll share tips, tell jokes, and draw joke-comics with you!
Chelsea District Library McKune Room – All Ages
And on Sunday 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm I'll be putting on a workshop for fellow and soon to be webcomic artists and comic app creators:
Storytelling to Make Your Comic’s UI Awesome
How do you make your webcomic, comic app, or ebook user-friendly and engaging? In this interactive workshop, cartoonist and app developer Rob Stenzinger will demonstrate how you can combine user-centric design principles with storytelling experience to design and construct an interactive home for your digital comic.

I'm excited to be part of this year's KRC, if you're in the Chelsea, MI area, I hope to see you there!
