Jon Chad at Poe Middle School

Illustrator and cartoonist Jon Chad blended fact and fiction to create Volcanoes: Fire and Life, which he shared over three presentations with sixth graders at Poe Middle School recently. Almost too good to be true, though, was Jon’s incredibly generous sharing of the materials he used for every step of the book’s creation. From thumbnail sketches and index cards to the dip pens he used and Bristol boards they’d inked, students were captivated by Jon’s supplies and skills and eager to read the final product!
