I’d like to take a moment to feature one of the most influential, creative geniuses I know. Mr. Bob Pendarvis, is a friend and former professor of mine from the sequential department at the Savannah College of Art and Design. In fact, Bob founded the department and is the reason for the season. So I’d like to tell you about his Kickstarter project .
A GIRL CALLED ANA TEACHES KITTENS HOW TO DRAW, is meant to provide inspiration for the next generation of young sequential artists and storytellers. It is the first in a series of books aimed especially at young girls, but hopefully entertaining for readers of all ages, girls or boys. Each 8.5″ x 11″, hardcover, full color book has over 200 pages and tells the story of how ANA helps kittens realize that communicating with art is simpler than they’d suspected, yet much more complicated than they’d ever imagined.
And since I’m a bit of a girly girl, and love Bob’s idea, I urge you to support him by going to the Kickstarter page and donating even a 1/4 of your penny jar to this project. His goal to be able to produce a high quality, full color hardcover book and send copies to potential publishers and school libraries. The long term, ultimate goal would be to develop the ANA books into an animated tv series.
And Bob doesn’t stop there, he advocates women in sequential art by putting together SUGAR NINJAS! Which also touches the giddy little art girl with fat crayons, in me. So please help out a genius who’s moving the girly art world forward.
P.S. you also get prizes with every level of donation so check out the plethora of artistic SCAD talent you could get your hands on.
