Over the weekend I attended Sorensen Library’s “Attack of the Comic Books” event for Free Comic Book Day. I was tasked with participating in a “Diversity” community chalk project with the kids. We chalked on paper and it got kind of messy!
This is a timelapse that I took with my new Hero GoPro camera.
A Place Called Home’s FIRST-EVER Comic Art and Literacy Expo, sponsored by Disney was a blast. On October 21st, artists, illustrators, writers, poets, and publishers brought their books and knowledge to share with many kids who showed up to take part in writing, drawing and storytelling panels and then they all got to take home books and comics for their enjoyment!

Last Saturday I participated in this year’s Pomona Chalk Festival. The them was “My Favorite Book”. I recently received this wonderful book titled “Latinx Comic Book Storytelling” in the mail from the author Frederick Luis Aldama and it has the cover art of one of my favorite cartoonist of all time, Jaime Hernandez so I decided to chalk it!
My new books are in, and I cannot wait to bring them to Columbus, Ohio next weekend!
