Kids can learn how to make their own cartoons and comics in three workshops and activity sessions…
Fable Comics Workshop
Oct 18th, 11:30 AM – 12:30PM
Looking for your next great comic idea? You can start with one of the oldest stories you know – fables! Chris Duffy, editor of Fable Comics Anthology, and artists George O’Connor (The Olympians) and Shelli Paroline (Adventure Time) will give you some pointers in drawing your own comic from well-known fables.
Oct 18th, 1:00 PM – 2:00PM
Cartoonist Cara Bean leads a playful workshop for kids and all ages. Participants are led into various drawing exercises that would encourage improvisation and strengthen creative ability. We will approach drawing from new angles and discover unexpected results. All you need is a sheet of paper, pencil, eraser, and an open mind.
Oct 18th, 2:30 PM – 3:30PM
Sometimes the best ideas come out of play, improvisation, and collaboration. In this workshop, you’ll participate in a few fun, collaborative, drawing games and create some wildly unexpected characters and stories with your fellow attendees.
Join us at MICE on Sunday, October 18th to explore the best in kids comics, and check out our full schedule for even more events offered all weekend.

Academy Award-nominated actress and musician Abigail Breslin is your best friend in her publishing debut, a collection of hilarious and heartfelt nonfiction essays on the subjects nearest and dearest to our hearts: love, loss, and Tumblr.
Growing up in film and the online era, Abigail knows better than anyone—it’s rough out there in love-land. And this generation is ill-prepared to handle it gracefully. Let’s be honest: if Cinderella had been on Twitter, she’d have ended up a crazy old cat lady like the rest of us. #realtalkSo when your “boyfriend” is liking different eligible young things’ selfies, what’s a modern ingenue to do? Put down the iPhone, step away from the hair dye, and ~chill~. Abbie is here with cautionary tales and solid advice on being a classy-ass lady in the digital age. Because, girls, we’re more than what meets the newsfeed. And this may sound crazy…But we’ve got this.
Plus, this book is gorgeous inside and out. With a foil cover and heavily designed interior, this collection will be the crowning jewel on any teen’s nightstand.
