6-12-09: Capt'n Eli Creator Goes Back To School

Matman posted a great write up about The Undersea Adventures of Capt'n Eli author/illustrator Jay Piscopo's school visit to Converse Middle School in Palmer, Massachusetts. Jay presented his interactive Draw on Your Creativity workshop.

Read Matman's write up at this link.

"Using simple shapes like triangles and circles he taught the group how to draw cool things like Dracula and Frankenstein. Another cool thing he did for the kids was had a student draw a scribble. From that scribble he used his imagination and artist’s eye and drew some incredible things like horses, werewolf and an alien. As the class wound down, he took some time to draw some cool things like Capt’n Eli and the Incredible Hulk. Not only did Jay make it look easy, he made it look fun." ~ Matman, Secret Identity Podcast
