Digital Artist Visits in Rhinelander
I have had the pleasure of being able to meet thousands of children as well as read to them my book, Bob the Hodag. Afterwards we enjoy a fun project like teaching them to draw a cartoon character or coming up with their own comic strip.
While visiting older children in the middle schools, we talked about cartooning and the different aspects of the job and the career. I enjoy book signings and meeting fans of my characters and books. I love being able to shake hands and talk to them. Being able to do presentations for The Boy Scouts of America and other organizations is truly an honor for me. I love being able to talk about my career and maybe inspiring someone to follow their dream as I have followed mine.
I enjoy being able to hold art classes at the local Hobby Lobby. I keep my classes light and fun and try to develop a project that is of interest to novice artists and experienced artists alike.
Some of the places I have had the pleasure of visiting include the Rhinelander District Library, Northwoods Community Elementary School, Crescent Elementary School, Central Elementary School, Pelican Elementary School, James Williams Middle School, Book World, Artstart, Boy Scouts of America, Best Embroideries LLC, Latitudes, Redikulus Dae, Art on the Lawn, Oneida County Fair, Hobby Lobby and many more.
If you would like to talk to me about attending a speaking event, book signing or a classroom and school event, please do not hesitate to contact me. I would love to visit!
