Cartooning Workshop

Today we had a fun all-ages cartooning workshop with Allison Bannister, who frequented our department while growing up in Hays. These days, she is living in Chicago and working on publishing her fantasy graphic novel, Wits End, with Kickstarter. She gave in informative presentation and inspired a room full of teens, children, and adults. Her presentation discussed different styles of layout: top to bottom, bottom to top, left to right, and right to left. She also talked about choosing colors for your main characters so that they will be recognized from far off. At the end of the presentation, Allison showed a list of mix and match prompts (character, situation, setting) to get everyone going. Everyone created some great drawings! Thanks Allison 🙂
