“John Czop, In and Out of the Library,” invites participants to two drawing events at local parks in the shadow of the library’s new Mobile Library vehicle, which will be open for tours and checkout of books. Then Czop will visit the library to talk about how he got his start as an artist and ended up drawing for Marvel.
The two drop-in drawing events are scheduled for noon-3 p.m. Thursday, June 13, at Bicentennial Park in downtown Asheboro; and noon-3 p.m. Thursday, July 18, at North Asheboro Park, 1939 Canoy Drive.
Czop’s library talk will take place at 6 p.m. Thursday, July 30. The library is located at 201 Worth Street.
Born in Chicago, Czop began drawing for DC Comics while studying at the Joe Kubert School of Graphic Art. After graduating, he began working for Marvel, drawing covers and other art for such characters as the Punisher, Spider-Woman, X-Men and Iron Man. He also has illustrated for Valiant Comics, and has worked extensively in the trading card industry.
He also has created art for Star Trek, Vampirella, Hellboy, Family Guy and more.
The events are free and all teens are invited.
