Guest Blogger Introduction

Hello to all ComixTalk regulars. I’ve been invited to be another guest blogger this week to regale you with tales of the comic world. My name is John Baird and I’m the founder of the Create a Comic Project, which uses webcomics in education. For an idea of the kind of work I do, you can see my panel proposal for SXSW Interactive 2011 (shameless plug: please vote for it if you’re so inclined).

My main focus this week will be on Otakon 2010, where I ran and participated in a number of webcomic events. To celebrate the invention of the project 5 years ago, I’ll discuss some of the experiences I’ve had teaching children. I’ll also provide advice on starting your own program.
