Earn Your Comic Artist
Badge!: Dan Conner, with Crazy Good Comics, is an
educator and cartoonist based in the Metro Denver area. He is
passionate about using artwork to impact our community and finds that
comics are one of the best ways to do this! With his series, My Gal,
the Zombie, Dan uses our culture’s popular fantasy theme of zombies as
a metaphor for diversity. While not including scary content, he hopes
that readers can draw parallels between this fiction and real life
situations of discrimination. From brainstorming to publication, Dan
can equip your girls to not only earn their Comic Artist badge, but to
become cartoonist. They can also work on other badges, such as screen
writing, drawing, and others. Workshops include advanced instructions
geared specifically to their goals using skills with technology,
collaboration, leadership, team building, artistic expression, and
even bully prevention. He could also work with your troop to release
their comics in a variety of formats. Workshops can be scheduled
directly by contacting Dan.
A minimum of 10 girls are required for a three hour session, and the
cost of $12 per girl includes all materials. There is no additional
charge for adults. Don’t miss this great opportunity to collaborate
with an award winning artist!
