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.

Unexpected Cartoons
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.

Mini-Comic Workshop
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.
