Update from Chenoweth Allen, winner from the January 29th Inaugural Event at the Water Tower:
"These middle school boys worked extremely hard on their comic project - it ended up taking us most of the semester to complete it. They truly put themselves into their characters who ranged from men who could control water, to a person in jail who ended up being an NBA star basketball player, to a super strength hero who lost all his powers. In only a cover image and four small frames, each boy gives us a glimpse into his hopes and fears, struggles and strengths.
Thank you so much for supporting West End School Art Therapy and the comic project. Thanks to your generosity we had quality materials to work with and could afford to have the compilation of their work professionally published. The West End School comic book is now in press and will be available at the next posSOUPbility event in the fall!
Thank you! - Chenoweth Allen"
