A Cartoon Arts Museum Exhibition

Saturday June 26 – November 14, 2010

Over the past decade, graphic novels have exploded in popularity with children and teenagers. The Cartoon Art Museum’s latest exhibition, Storytime! Graphic Novels for Kids of All Ages, features the work of ten influential cartoonists whose work broke new ground in bookstores and libraries. Their graphic novels are promoted as product for the children and young adult marketplace but these innovative graphic novels are captivating to readers of all ages. Co-curators Andrew Farago and Larry Marder have placed a special emphasis on the creative processes used by the individual artists. Visitors are invited to peek over the shoulders of the creators and follow along from the first sketchbook doodles all the way to the printed page.

Artists and strips on exhibition, and participating in programming, include: Mo Willems, Little Lulu, Larry Marder’s Beanworld, Stan Sakai’s Eisner-winning samurai epic Usagi Yojimbo, Bay Area-based Harvey Award-winning cartoonist Lark Pien, a sneak peek at Dave Roman’s upcoming comedic sci-fi graphic novel Astronaut Academy, and Jeff Smith’s epic cartoon/fantasy BONE.

Programming featuring Storytime! artists will take place throughout the duration of the exhibition. Details regarding these events will be announced as schedules are confirmed. Check the website so you don’t miss a thing!
