Every holiday season, Town Hall Art Gallery features a two-month art exhibit that promises to engage the whole family, and this year is no exception. How is a web comic strip created? You’ll see ideas refined, details added and characters come to life as you observe the evolution of a comic page from sketches to inks, to full color sequential art.
The art exhibit "Creating the Comic Evan Yeti" will be displayed from November 4 - December 31 in Groveport Town Hall’s Art Gallery, 648 Main Street. Hours are Monday - Saturday from 9 am - 8 pm and Sundays from Noon - 6 pm. Town Hall will be observing holiday hours and closed on November 11; November 28-29; and December 24 - 25.
Mat Washburn, creator of the webcomic Evan Yeti, invites you to embark on a visual journey through the comic making process. You’ll see ideas refined, details added and characters come to life as you observe the evolution of a comic page from sketches to inks, to full color sequential art.
Experience the story of Evan Yeti, a young abominable snow monster on a quest to find his parents. View the original artwork featured on evanyeti.com, take part in interactive displays and explore life size replicas from the comic.
With each new experience Evan gets a little wiser, a little stronger and begins to grow from a little yeti to a young adult. The exhibit will include interactive displays, games, coloring pages and an opportunity to create and submit your own comic strip.
