My visit to the Boys and Girls Club

Last week Kevin Staniec and I did a presentation and book signing for the Boys and Girls Club of Laguna Beach. We talked about the process of creating stories and how we made How To Catch A Cloud. It was a ton of fun and I ended up doing a drawing demo for the kids. Afterwards, some of the coordinators told us a few of the kids were writing stories and drawing comic book frames. That is total inspiration for me! Here are a few photos from the event.

We asked the kids for a few key words and premise for the demo. The words they gave me were giraffe, cop, and ferrari and the cop was stopping the giraffe from getting a ferrari. I had never drawn a ferrari before so I had to look it up real quick for reference, it ended up looking like a porsche but hey, they enjoyed it nonetheless......lol! Here is the demo I did for them.

Thanks buddy, I find the more I do it the more the kids actually influence me!
