[via Press Release]
As part of its San Diego Comic-Con festivities, Ape Entertainment will be holding a comic book art exhibit at The New Children’s Museum that will feature original sequential pages from some of Kizoic’s most popular titles, including Shrek, Penguins of Madagascar, Little Green Men, and more.
The exhibit will run from July 19th through the 25th.
“It’s exciting for kids to learn about the process of making a comic book, and seeing the original art from some of their favorite titles is a moment that they’ll remember into adulthood,” states Ape Entertainment founder and co-publisher Brent E. Erwin. “And to be able to meet some of the artists responsible for the work is just icing on the cake.”
Artists Christine Larsen (Shrek) and Ray Height (R.P.M.) will be on hand to showcase their art and will lead a series of workshops aimed at teaching interested students the process of drawing their favorite comic book characters. The workshops will be held Thursday, Friday, and Sunday from 2:00 PM to 2:45 PM.
“The kids who pick up a pencil today and sketch a super hero for the first time could very well be the superstar artists of tomorrow,” continues Erwin.
The KiZoic Art Exhibit is free to all SDCC pass holders. Families who attend will also receive complimentary Ape Entertainment comic books.
The New Children’s Museum is located at 200 West Island Avenue, San Diego, CA.
