Visited the Van Corlaer Elementary School Autograph Club, Schenectady, NY. The Autograph Club at Van Corlaer Elementary School is a program designed to help the students study the importance of writing and reading by writing to celebrities, artists, authors, musicians, political figures, pop-culture personalities, and others and asking for an autographed photo along with a comment expressing the importance of reading. I was invited to spend this afternoon with the Autograph Club to discuss the fields of illustration and comic book art and, of course, to sign autographs for the students.
