Just a reminder: Sam, Seth and I will be helping kids to make comics at the Indianapolis Marion County Public Library, downtown. The workshop is this Saturday, Feb 28th from 2-4pm. It’s geared for a younger crowdbut everyone is invited. Bring your kids, tell people at work, you don’t want to miss it. There will be paper, pens, markers, computers and laptops, everything you need to make comics. And trust me, you need to check out IMCPL’s Learning Curve facility in the library. It’s the kids/young adult section and is just about the coolest setup I’ve ever seen. We’ll even be using a room with floor-to-cieling dry erase boards to sketch on. I would have done anything for a library this cool, with these kinds of resources when I was growing up. It’s a short workshop but we’ll stick around a bit after the official time runs out to hang out a draw.
This is our first workshop, but if this goes well we hope to be doing these on a semi-regular basis with IMCPL, and other libraries as word gets out. Check back here to find out how it went if you can’t make it out. Maybe you can catch the next one!
Our next meetup for 2009 is scheduled for Sunday, March 1st. Meet us at Fionn MacCool’s on the north side in Fishers. http://maccoolsirishpub.com/home.htm at 6:00 PM.
See you all there!

Kyle has whipped up our next B:DC post a bit early this week to capitalize on some recent news out of the NY Comic-Co about motion comics.
Stay tuned for news on the new blog home of all BRAINSTORMING: Digital Comics articles. I’m currently hunting for a new blog theme that I can re-purpose for our new project. I’ll post a link here when it’s up and running.
It’s Friday, and the second installment of BRAINSTORMING: Digital Comics is up on the Blog@ section of Newsarama. B:DC is the new blog written and illustrated by myself and Kyle Latino that talks about cool new tools, techniques and services in the digital comics medium and the creators and artists who use them.
We plan to have a new post up every Friday and soon a new dedicated blog where you can view the B:DC archives. You can read our debut post here.
