Please join us at the Center for Cartoon Studies at 11:30 am on Saturday, October 5 for the opportunity to get books signed by two fantastic Cartoonists, James Sturm and Joe Lambert.
In James Sturm’s new book, Adventures in Cartooning: Characters in Action, the Knight, Edward the chubby horse, and of course the Magic Cartooning Elf are back for more fun, but this time they're sharing the stage with a host of new characters. You'll learn how to create your own kooky characters. And fresh faces are needed -- the famous director Otto Airs is making a movie, and he's invited everyone in the kingdom to audition! It's your chance to dream up boatloads of wacky characters to star in the film. Discover how body language and expression are used to tell a story, dress a wizard to the nines, and choose the perfect rogue robot. After following the heroes on their cartooning adventure, you'll be ready to create characters to star in your own comic book!
In Joe Lambert’s book, Fairy Tale Comics, several fairy tale classics are brought to life. From favorites like "Puss in Boots" and "Goldilocks" to obscure gems like "The Boy Who Drew Cats," "Fairy Tale Comics" has something to offer every reader. Seventeen fairy tales are wonderfully adapted and illustrated in comics format by seventeen different cartoonists, including Raina Telgemeier, Brett Helquist, Cherise Harper, and more. Edited by Nursery Rhyme Comics' Chris Duffy, this jacketed hardcover is a beautiful gift and an instant classic.
