Wow! It has been over a month since I have posted anything. Not like there haven't been things to post about, I've just been busy!
Cartooning Club at the Union West Library has exploded the last few months! Where we were averaging about 13 kids every month we have been hitting almost 30 kids the last three months! I don't know why, but it is a joy to see so many kids looking for ways to improve their skills and share their creativity with others.
Speaking of the Cartooning Club, the next meeting is THIS Thursday, December 20 at 5:30 and comic book and commercial artist extraordinaire Al Bigley will be there! Al recently went through his vast library, weeding out books he had multiples of, or already owned the original monthly editions for. Al suggested that the books be put into the library collection or be given away to kids. Working at this library, I know the books that would make it to the shelf may not enjoy a long life as circulating library books. The ones that wouldn't go into the collection would be put in the book sale or thrown out by someone who doesn't "get" comics. So a grand giveaway for Christmas tot he Cartooning Club was the result! But it won't just be Al's books, but a few comics from my own collection along with other fun items!
