I met some funny and energetic kids while signing books and illustrating caricatures at the Annual African-American Read-In program at Laurel Woods Elementary School in Laurel, MD.
Spectra the comic book series that I illustrate for PhysicsCentral.com. In March, the author and I completed Issue #5. – Spectra: Turbulent Times. We tried something new with the cover paper, check out the “metallic-silver” coated paper stock.
I truly appreciate the recent write-up that was featured in the New Pittsburgh Courier. I illustrated cartoons for that historic newspaper while I lived in Pittsburgh! To bad I didn’t win, perhaps next year….
My colleague Chris DiScenza visited Kenya and shared with a classroom, PhysicsQuest 2008: Nikola Tesla and the Electric Fair, the comic/activity book that I illustrated for PhysicsCentral.com. http://tiny.cc/30fr9
I just completed illustrating the second issue of the SPECTRA comic book series. Here’s a brief description of the educational comic serices: Six months have passed since Lucinda (AKA Spectra) learned about her powerful laser powers. In SPECTRA #1, Lucinda used those powers to rescue her friends from the clutches of the evil Miss Alignment. Issue #2 is a continuation of that adventure and also provides the reader with some history about the invention of the laser. Written by Rebecca Thompson-Flagg and illustrated by Kerry G. Johnson
This caricature illustration highlights some of 2009’s top news and entertainment stories. How many do you remember?
Just got the confirmation that the character that I co-created (with Rebecca Thompson-Flagg), “Spectra” the Original Laser Superhero was approved for booth space at next summer’s Comic Con in San Diego: http://www.comic-con.org/
Congrats to President Obama for winning the Nobel Peace Prize!
