Toronto Public Library COMICS JAM!!

For the past four weeks, I've been hanging out at Albion Library 
in Rexdale and Parliament Street Library in Regent Park 
making comics with teens!

We've had a dedicated crew at each library 
and made a ton of comics.

We read a bunch of graphic novels and talked about our favourites.

We covered layout and design, how to develop character 
and storyline...

... learned new drawing techniques to capture character, expression, setting and environment...

 And got on the photocopier and made all our comics 
into a load of zines!

 I'm so proud of all the teens I worked with who made comics with honesty and passion, and had a whole lot of fun doing it!

Up next in November, Thorncliffe & St. James Town
