Great Graphics Workshop

Great Graphics on Tuesday, July 26th at 6:30 pm featuring: Ellen T. Crenshaw, Rex Ogle, & Yehudi Mercado. $10 RSVP Required.
Tuesday, July 26, 2022 - 6:30pm

Draw! Write! Create!

There's a reason young readers are gravitating to graphic novels in record numbers --- the stories are well developed and the drawings are full of action, color, imagination and whimsy. Kids connect with graphic novels!!! If you want to encourage your budding creative reader -- either as an artist or an author or both, this dynamic workshop will surely inspire them.

Bring your story ideas and join us for a fast-paced, hands-on, interactive graphic novel writing/drawing event for kids with creatives Ellen T. Crenshawn, Yehudi Mercardo, and Rex Ogle. 

Best for young creatives ages 8 to 13.

Space is limited! RSVP is required. A $10 RSVP will go towards the price of a book and include snacks, a special writing/drawing journal to use at the event, and a whole lot of fun!

Masks are required for attendance.

Ellen T. Crenshaw is an award-winning cartoonist and illustrator for books, editorial, comics, and children's media. Her first graphic novel, Kiss Number 8, was longlisted for the 2019 National Book Award and nominated for the 2020 Eisner Award. She lives in California with her husband, night fury, and razorback sand terrier.

 

Rex Ogle has had lots of jobs. Some involved waiting tables, moving boxes, or cleaning toilets. Other jobs involved creating stories for Star Wars, LEGO, Power Rangers, Minions, DC Comics, and Marvel Comics. Now Rex is a full-time writer and the author behind Free Lunch, winner of the YALSA Award for Excellence in Nonfiction, as well as several graphic novels under his pen name Rey Terciero. And he’s written the first book in The Supernatural Society series. Why? Because, while it was fun to clean toilets, it is much more fun to write about monsters. 

 

Yehudi Mercado is a former pizza delivery driver and art director for Disney Interactive. He is currently a writer-artist-animator living in Los Angeles. His books include Sci-Fu, Hero Hotel, Rocket Salvage, and Fun Fun Fun World. He is currently show running the Hero Hotel podcast and writing and directing an original animated short for Nickelodeon. You can find him at www.supermercado.pizza.
