In December 2010 the COLOR OF COMICS traveled across the sea to Senegal, Africa! It not only enjoyed 10 days of local school children visiting, viewing, and learning — it also became part of the FESSMAN International Arts Festival. For that entire month thousands of people, from all over the world, viewed the works of comic book artists … from all over the world. People of color were able to enjoy characters of color … How cool is that?
Our trip (along with the Kids’ Comic Con) to Senegal Africa was a major success! I’ve posted a few video clips to illustrate some of our best moments — but trust me — they were all amazing!
So view the video clips, especially the first which was taken the day I arrived in the city of Dakar — which by the way was at 6:30 AM. By 8:30 AM we were at the American Cultural Museum with a class of 30 kids due any minute, and no time to frame the art.. By the morning of day 2, we had half framing completed, and by day 3 the job was done (click here).
