News Around the Kingdom: Guest Blogger and Sketchbook Art

by The King

Greetings Comics Royalty,

This week we enjoyed a very special visitor: Renee Faundo, winner of the this year’s Jay Kennedy Memorial Scholarship and an exceptionally talented young cartoonist studying animation at CalArts, was the guest blogger on Comics Kingdom. Her art style is beautifully whimsical and totally unique. You can see her posts and artwork here. We wish her continued success and look forward to watching her grow and evolve as an artist.  

Check back on Monday to hear Renee’s wrap-up of her time here! 


Also, this week saw many cartoonists and even some characters getting soaked while doing the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS.

One cartoonist who did the challenge and assisted another cartoonist with theirs was none other than Hilary Price (“Rhymes With Orange”). She gave a helping hand to Mo Willems as he accepted his Ice Bucket Challenge …
