Recap: Annapolis Book Festival 2013
This past Saturday was the first-ever Annapolis Book Festival that Curls Studio has exhibited at. There were a lot of families to meet and young children interested in discovering comics. Plus I got to meet Clifford the Big Red Dog and ate free ice cream! We also gave out free issues of Magic Bullet #6, Washington D.C.'s comics newspaper.
Carolyn Belefski is available for freelance illustration work, commissions, or design work. She has done freelance projects for BOOM! Studios (Cartoon Network's Adventure Time), Clorox, National Geographic, The White House, and more. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your project need and budget.
