I with two of my fellow class mates felt there was a need for a school sponsored club for the love of Comic Books and the Sequential Art Form. Seeing this need, we jumped in and founded the Award winning Comic Book Society.
In this role I have co-founded and successfully implemented “Heroes of Charity”, our clubs annual charity drive, our first season we collected over $3000 worth of art supplies and comic books for the children of The Austin Children’s Shelter.This years “Heroes of Charity” will be benefitting the survivors of the Japan tsunami.
I assisted in the implementation of a successful partnership with “SCARE for a CURE” a nonprofit volunteer organization.For this partnership I led the coordination of the club members in all volunteer efforts including Set Build, Set Decoration, Costume, Acting and Site Cleanup and tear down.As partners with “SCARE for a CURE” in 2009, we helped achieve a record breaking year on several levels including the primary goal of raising $15,000 for “The Breast Cancer Resource Center of Central Texas”.“SCARE for a CURE” awarded our club with the :”Welcome to the Cult” award of appreciation in honor of our hard work and contributions in 2009.
I successfully secured placement for our club at the annual STAPLE Independent Media Expo, Wizard World Austin Comicon, IKKICON and Comicpalooza to promote our projects and charities.
Spearheaded the creation of the clubs Website.We are currently in the process of producing our digital comic book including art and story work from all members.As club officer I helped spearhead production and editing of the comic as well as contributing my own art and story work.
