The following is a list of my presentations and workshops. I'm flexible, however, and can tailor format and content to nearly any age group.

Free 15 minute virtual visit includes:

Q&A (Question and answer format), for students who have finished reading one or more of my books. To make the most of the 15 minutes, I advise having questions prepared ahead of time. Also, please either have the student come up to the microphone and clearly state his/her question, or have an adult repeat the question so I can hear it. Thanks so much!

Paid/longer visits (see my fees) are more flexible and can be tailored to a particular group. In addition to the above, they can include:

- More detailed discussion of how a book was created, additional focus on the writing and revision process, showing more sketches and cover discussion, etc.

- Digital drawing demo in addition to or instead of the paper drawing demo.

- Advice for those who want to write and/or illustrate their own picture book.

- Tips on how to get into the business (can be tailored to any age level).

- Hands-on workshops about writing and illustrating comics, character development, picture book writing and illustrating, creativity in art.

- Multi-session workshop about creating comics or graphic novels. I had great fun doing a series of "How To Create Your Own Graphic Novel" sessions for 8-12 year olds at the Toronto Public Library.
