2016 Comic Book Invasion

Had a wonderful time at the City of Commerce Library’s 2016 Comic Book Invasion. Had a good children’s workshop and the kids were great! Much thanks to the library for putting on the event.

Had a great superhero mask & cape making workshop for kids.
The kids in the workshop enjoyed the opportunity to paint their favorite superhero logos.
More children at the workshop.
The kids had fun making and wearing the capes.
My assistants at the library. The girl kneeling is chalk artist Connie Flores, you can see her chalk work at the yearly Pasadena Chalk Festival on father’s day weekend.
The kids were excited to get their little capes made.
I even got another kid to read my “Ocean Daydreams” zine at my table.

2016 Latino Comics Expo

I was happy to participate in this year’s Latino Comics Expo, which was held at the Long Beach Museum of Latin American Art. There were so many creators to meet and so many great panels to attend all week-end long. Some of the artists also participated in the “Artists Assemble” art show in conjunction with the expo. A great time was has by all. If you missed it, come to the expo next year. Thank you Long Beach Museum of Latin American Art and thanks to everyone who showed up to support the 2016 Latino Comics Art Expo.
