One of my favorite activities to do with young artists. Pick a font and write your name in that style! I’ve also made notecards with a different style written on each one and have the students “pick a mystery font” to start the class. A lot of kids really dig this challenge.
My illustration of “Captain Greenbeard” made the editor’s pick in Next Magazine’s annual Comics issue. The Captain is a well recognized NYC personality often seen at Riis Beach in amazing costumes. He goes by many names (“Rockaway Betty”, “The Queen of Queens”) and is never without his pup and trusty parrot!
