ya dudes — support this kickstarter now that the cool dog one is finished, ha ha.
i hang out with walker sometimes when he teaches making comics at the library to kids. one time i was his “teacher’s assistant” with cathy g johnson, the situation was while walker was teaching, i did nothing and cathy did all the work. anyway its a very cool class thats FREE FOR KIDS so if you’re a traveling comic book artist, you should get in touch with walker and see if you can pop in on his class, the kids will be psyched.
and if you’re not a traveling comic book artist, you should get in touch w/ walker anyway and let him know you’d love to contribute somehow to a project! the kids will also be psyched.
also the kids are totally allright.
I don’t tend to plug Kickstarters here (even for projects I’m involved with) but this one is for the children, sooo
The Providence Comics Consortium is teaching a series of comics workshops for kids at public libraries throughout the state of Rhode Island in May 2013. The PCC will publish an anthology of the kids’ comics along with the work of adult cartoonists, representing kids from all over Rhode Island and artists from all over the world. Funds raised through Kickstarter will pay for materials to self-publish and distribute an edition of five hundred 200-page comic books.
Jesse McManus, Mickey Zacchilli, Brian Chippendale, Chris Kuzma, myself and many others will be contributing work to it. The above comic is my contribution from a previous volume, where the kids assigned me 8 scary teachers to write a 3-page comic around:
1. A teacher with a single very hairy boob
2. A one eyed zombie teacher
3. A teacher with a tiny hidden face on her back left over from an undeveloped twin
4. A teacher pregnant with a dragon
5. A bald teacher whose head is so very reflective that it melts his students
6. A teacher with 4 snake heads (one being a cobra)
7. A really really old teacher in her underwear
8. A quiet teacher who is mocked and ridiculed by the students during the day, but who, at night, reveals it’s true hooded, long-eared, reptilian form, going from house to house of the misbehaved children, eating them
Oh ho ho ho kids
