Cartoonist Phil Yeh, SCCS member will
lead a graphic-novel workshop to
celebrate the new edition of his latest
children's book DINOSAURS ACROSS
AMERICA.
The event is the newest stop on Yeh’s 25-year
tour and education crusade. Yeh and his band of
artists, known collectively as Cartoonists Across
America, have traveled the world to promote
education since 1985. Along the way, the
Cartoonists (with the help of thousands of
children) have painted more than 1,600 murals
promoting literacy. After the tour’s end in 2010,
Yeh plans to finish the feature-length
documentary Planet Literacy: The
Cartoonists Across America.
Dinosaurs Across America is filled with fun facts
about the United States in a cheerful cartoon
form. A black-and-white comic-book version of the
book has been reprinted eight times and sold
nearly 200,000 copies.
