Stumptown Comics Fest:
Whoo hoo! The fest opens up tomorrow morning at 10am and the kid's workshop begins at 10:30 in the Idaho Room. The Stumptown organizers have been kind enough to reserve 10 spaces for us, but I'd recommend showing up early (like as soon as the main doors open!) just to make sure we all get in- I expect the workshop will fill up entirely! The workshop ends at 11:45, I know we'll all want to do a bit of looking around, but thought it might be fun to meet up for lunch afterward, and compare our day. If you can make it, we'll meet up at the food court on the 3rd floor of the Lloyd Center Mall at 1pm. Make sure to bring parents with you tomorrow as it's a pretty big crowd and I'd hate to lose track of anyone.
Tickets to get into Stumptown are $6, I'd recommend bringing cash to pay, I'm not sure that they offer a kid discount, but the workshop is free. The Stumptown Website is www.stumptowncomics.com
Thanks for your comic drawings our poster is on display along with the work of other fantastic Portland comic artists at the PCPA building 1111 SW Broadway, so you should head over and check it out especially if you're heading over to the main library, art museum or historical society! The exhibit will run through the end of the month
