Locals with school-age children: join me for my first Comics Lab at the Dobbs Ferry Public Library on May 4. The Comics Lab is an art happening where school-age students write, design, and illustrate their own comic strip. As of this digital printing of Issue Nº 31, there are only a few spots left! Find out more right here.
