Kids CC Recap/ Launch Party Next Week!
*KIDS COMIC CON*
This past weekend I trekked up to the Bronx to take part in Kids Comic Con! I did a small workshop, and the fact that everyone left with some new drawing ideas inspired by MY process made me very happy. (Hooray thinking in metaphors!) I also had some great conversations with other comic artists, such as Raina Telgemeier and Yuko Ota.
*PAGE BY PAIGE - BOOK LAUNCH PARTY*
It's time to say THANK YOU for all you folks who have supported/ encouraged/ inspired me while making this book come to life! (If you can't make it, don't fret! I'll be doing a bunch of workshops at different NYC bookstores over the next month.)
Sunday, May 1st
37 Main Street (DUMBO) Brooklyn, NY
There will be a short reading and then a live musical performance by glockenspiel-yielding-quirky-rapper Alyson Greenfield! She's writing an original song just for the occasion. Don’t be late or you won’t receive a raffle ticket for some goodies...including an original DRAWING from the book!
We'll finish the formal stuff and hang out....You can have a Paige-inspired block print stamped on you by a cigarette girl, nibble on light refreshments, snag freebies, and have your fill-in-the-voice-bubble cartoon portrait taken! And of course I'll be signing copies of the book.
We'll either head across the street into Brooklyn Bridge Park for the best waterside view of Manhattan OR we'll head over to Rebar for drinks. (Depending on the weather and what folks are in the mood for.)
