Free School Visits
Since I started the program this year the response has been overwhelming. I used to charge for school visits, but with budget cuts and a terrible economy this program just made sense to me. I come to the school for the day and give presentations to the kids. My presentations cover my career, how I have illustrated over 100 books, I show the art I did as a kid, and I talk about practicing and working hard. Then the best part, for the last 15-20 minutes I sit and teach the kids how to draw.
I make my money by selling my books to the students and the schools earn 30% off of the sale of my books. Some schools have made over $1,000.00 off the sale of my books so it's a win-win situation for everyone involved. The students get a day of creativity and learning, I make money off the sale of the books, and the school gets a hassle free fundraiser.
The three books I have for sale are as follows to date:
Drawing Animals With Numbers
Drawing Monsters With Letters
Drawing Sea Animals With Numbers
All books are $6.00 each and I sign and draw a cartoon in each book that the students buy.
