On November 11, 2017 I was invited to teach how to teach how to make comic book pages using the Comic Draw App. This event was held at General Assembly, an educational center that specializes teaching in-demand skills.
I had the privilege to share my expertise with attendees from all over Atlanta. It was a good time with a host of talent in the room so of course we had to bust out the #pvsketch challenge.

This year PVS participated and played an integral role in the Sewell Mill Library & Cultural Center’s inaugural Mini Con. An event to celebrate comic culture in the Cobb County community. In attendance there was over 1200 people for the event that took place on July 21, 2018 from 1-6 pm.
The event garnered attention from the local press East Cobb news and featured a plethora of festivities including workshops, panels, musical performances, cosplay contest, gaming and of course food.
We hosted a diversity in comics panel similar to the one we did at Momo Con except we had some different guests. Regardless industry insights and experience was shared.

We also gave one of our signature Fresh Voices Comic Creation Workshops. With support from The Pollination Project this workshop was free to the community. Advanced Picture Studios was kind enough to help us put together this highlight real from the workshop.

And what would a convention be without our ongoing #pvskech challenge? Some eager youngsters and talented vendors blessed us with these drawing sheets.
Special thanks to Fred Andrews IV @artofwarstudios & Belle Dragon of @catdragoncomics!
This was the first time we helped organize such a big event. We hope to do more of this type of work. It really grows the community and brings a diverse fun bunch of people.
I was happy to see my colleagues come out, attendees from our workshops, and of course family and friends. It was fun, creative and vigorous atmosphere that was all ages and family friendly. I look forward to doing more and bringing even more people together around the world.
On July 14, 2018 Prime Vice Studios hosted their third Fresh Voices Comic Creation Workshop sponsored by The Pollination Project. Below you will see the video from this event.
With support of the Pollination Project we have been able to launch The Prime Vice Fresh Voices Comic Creation Workshops.
Our first set of workshops took place at The Wren’s Nest. A cultural center that celebrates the timeless legacy of the Brer Rabbit tales and promotes the art of storytelling in all of its contemporary forms.
Below is footage from our workshops which took place on June 25, 2018 & July 23, 2018
Prime Vice Studios has been sponsored by the Pollination Project to provide comic creation workshops in the Metro-Atlanta area for the next 9 months. These are free workshops provided with supplies and workbook taught by Loso Perez and Ananya Vahal. The mission is to teach comic book creation workshops at organizations, art centers, schools, etc. to develop talent and diverse voices through the sequential art medium.
So far we have booked several time dates at the following locations and more will be featured soon.
