StoryArts 2015: The Documentary (featuring IP artist Jamie Hibdon)

Check out this mini-documentary of the 2015 StoryArts Summer Camp sessions — where Illustrated Press artist Jamie Hibdon developed and taught a series of drawing workshops exploring the hero’s journey with a group of Chicago 7th graders.

The students worked individually to write and illustrate realistic fiction comics of which they are the heroes. The comics were then compiled, exhibited at the Currency Exchange Café in Washington Park and distributed throughout Chicago by the South Side Weekly.
