A Bowl Full of Happiness at Wild Goose Creative


The artwork for A Bowl Full of Happiness is on display this month at Wild Goose Creative, and we're having an artist reception/jam party on Thursday, October 18 from 6 to 9 pm.

Come out and enjoy great snacks, fun conversation and the chance to add random panels to jams of various sizes! No previous cartooning experience necessary - trust me, that's how I got started.

A Bowl Full of Happiness is an anthology of comics about Sea Monkeys, spearheaded by the Sunday Comix group as a fundraiser fro the Hero Initiative, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping comic book creators, writers and artists with health, medical, and quality-of-life assistance.

Copies of A Bowl Full of Happiness, as well as prints of the fantastic back cover created by Mike Carroll, will be available at the reception, with all proceeds going to the Hero Initiative.
