Learn to create a comic strip with Phil Yeh

PhilYehWingedTigerLearn how to write and draw a comic strip or graphic novel with artist Phil Yeh during a free Graphic Novel Workshop at the Grants Pass branch of Josephine Community Libraries on Friday, November 13 from 4:30 to 6 pm. The workshop is open to all ages.

Phil Yeh has written and illustrated more than 90 books during his career and is one of the pioneers of the graphic novel, having published his first comic book in 1977. But Yeh’s true passion is reading education, and in 1985, he founded Cartoonists Across America in support of literacy at all levels.

Yeh’s Graphic Novel Workshop is designed to help budding artists and writers create original ideas. As part of the workshop, participants will work as a group to create a comic strip with characters and a storyline. A copy of “Winged Tiger” from Yeh’s “Ideaship” series will be free to all attendees.

Space is limited, so early registration is encouraged. To reserve a seat for the workshop, email info@josephinelibrary.org or call 541-476-0571.
