Troy Cummings
Troy delivers a fully-illustrated presentation about creating characters and writing stories. He starts by stepping through his process for creating scenes from The Notebook of Doom. Then he plays a few drawing games in which he runs into storytelling "problems" and asks the students to help solve them. The presentation ends with an improv game, where students help generate a never-before-seen monster, which Troy must illustrate on the fly! If there's time, Troy will illustrate TWO monsters who engage in an EPIC MONSTER BATTLE!
