School/college/workshop availability options: If you’d like me to visit your school, please contact me and if I can, I’d be more than happy to visit! I have prepared different lectures/workshops for students of varying ages, which address topics like small publishers vs big publishers vs DIY, how to “write” artwork (text and art as a symbiotic relationship) and basically everything I learned about making a living through comics during the last decade of figuring it all out my damn self, usually the hard way. I also have activities for kids, involving simple four panel comic storytelling. I prefer doing college lectures in person, however Skype can be arranged as well.
