Joshua-Allen-illustration_webProfessional illustrator Joshua M. Allen will demonstrate the process of using traditional and digital technology to create illustrations at the WonderLab Museum of Science, Health and Technology in Bloomington during First Friday Evening Science of Art: Comic and Storybook Illustration on Friday, December 5. Mr. Allen, who lives in Bloomington, has worked on over 300 publications as a staff illustrator for the world’s largest publishing company. Most of his work has been children’s book illustrations and book covers, but he also has experience with print and web comics, tattoo flash, posters, album covers, and more. Visitors will have the opportunity to talk with him, plus make their own stories through narrative games, learn tips on how to draw characters, and make original comics using an online template. Half-price general museum admission ($3.50) will be in effect on First Friday Evening from 5:00 p.m. until the museum closes at 8:30 p.m. The activities are recommended for all ages and are included with museum admission. A small plate meal, freshly prepared by Bloomingfoods, will be available to buy in the WonderLab café. Free parking spaces are available in the 4th Street Parking Garage after 6:00 p.m. First Friday Evening Science of Art: Comic and Storybook Illustration is sponsored by F. Rudolf Turner with additional grant support from Ivy Tech Community College-Bloomington, the Community Foundation of Bloomington and Monroe County, the Indiana Arts Commission, and the National Endowment for the Arts. The monthly program series is part of WonderLab’s mission to highlight the connections between science and art.
