Joe Wos to present at The Cartoon Museum
The Cartoon Museum announces that Joe Wos will present “his original blend of storytelling and live cartoon illustration” on June 12. Joe, who founded and is Executive Director of the Toonsuem in Pittsburgh, PA, will also lead a free workshop at the Charles M. Schulz museum later that day.
With prods from the audience, children and adults alike, Wos weaves both original tales and re-tells the classics. The stories, a combination of performance, literary and visual art, are renditions of folk tales and fairy tales with a twist.
“I never know what’s going to spawn an idea for a story,” says Wos. Joe Wos is the current Executive Director of Toonseum in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and has been telling stories while drawing them since 1991. Wos has performed across the United States, including New York, St. Louis, Atlanta, New Orleans and now is returning to San Francisco, with further stops including the Charles M. Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa.
How to Toon, Wos’ instructional DVD, was filmed at the Charles M. Schulz Museum and has a special introduction by Jean Schulz. A step-by-step process using imagination exercises, stories and drawing instructions, Wos not only teaches how to draw, but how to create a story.
