Each year, our young comics artists create an anthology comic book around a different theme. In class, they hone their storytelling skills as they research and develop characters, write, draw, ink, digitally color, and print their comics. Comics have featured pterdactyls flying over the prehistoric Venice wetlands, personal heroes, and a special project for the LA Department of Water and Power, on energy and water conservation. Meet Mike, our amazing comics teacher and storyboard artist, below.
