Then you NEED to come to Adam and Athena’s Mini-Comics Crafternoon!! At 1, Athena will show you how to take your favorite old books, recycled covers, or whatever you like, to make into your very own sketchbooks, that reflect just how pretty the art inside is! Then at 2, Adam will show you two different way to take all your pretty art and make a mini-comic out of it with a z-stitch, getting it ready to show to editors and sell at conventions. With the Mini-Comics mingle just around the corner, and Editor’s day soon to follow, you can’t afford to miss these exciting workshops!!
