SAN DIEGO Comic-Con@Home 2021:
"SPIRIT SKIES LAUNCH PARTY PANEL"
COVID DIDN'T STOP US, WE GOT IT PUBLISHED!
WATCH US ON THURSDAY, JULY 22nd at 3:00pm PDT
"Are you a high school student with dreams of becoming a graphic novelist? Are you a high school teacher with dreams of creating a graphic novel with your class? Spirit Skies is a graphic novel written and illustrated exclusively by high school students! Not only did we dream it, we DID it! The panel will discuss the impact of Covid-19 on cross cultural artistic exchange, how technology has made this project easier and more dynamic! The student panel of writers and illustrators - including a Guna native from Panama who wrote the sequel from the tropical point of view- will be on the panel, featuring never-before-seen art, and a sneak peek at the next volume in the Spirit Skies story! The panel will take you on an exploratory journey - through the eyes of a Hummingbird! Spirit Skies is not just an adventure written by high school students - it is a lesson in environmental stewardship. With the lesson that we are all interconnected, all you have to do is go outside and you will be interacting with wildlife. It could be a hummingbird coming from Panama or Alaska!"
Check out the video from our panel last year in 2020! Last year, we focused on how we did it, and how you can too!
Comic-Con 2019 - Education and Production
The 2019 panel was a roaring success, with attendance far beyond what we expected. We did a successful presentation on multiple different aspects to our project! Below are pictures of our poster, art drawn live during the panel, and images of our presentations from our panels at Comic Arts Conference Poster Session in 2017 and 2018 where we introduced the concept of what was called then, "the Hummingbird Project".
