Christopher's Comic Book Inspirations Enjoys a Fitting Finale
Following the workshops, the students invite their families to a celebratory evening event where the students' comic strips are on display and all of the children receive certificates of excellence for their completion of the program. This year, Mark Mariano, an award winning cartoonist, children's book illustrator and creator of the HappyLoo series and Suzannah Rowntree, editor and graphic artist for Archie Comics, and character and concept designer for Jinx, attended to share with the children their entree into the comic book world.
During this event, the children received Certificates of Excellence, their two movie tickets* and art supplies to help them continue their new hobby. They also enjoy pizza, drinks and cookies.
