Ren Hanami (Ninja Mom Creator/Writer), Don Schmidt (Ninja Mom Artist/Illustrator) and David J. Kono (Ninja Mom Producer) participated in the wonderful CALE focused on children and literacy along with our friends from the Sketchy Bug Group.

It was the third annual Comic Arts and Literacy Expo hosted by A Place Called Home in Los Angeles. Children from the community were treated to free comics, raffle prizes, food, and fun. It was enjoyable for us to share how our Ninja Mom and Tengonis in the Tiki came about and what is in store for the future. Hopefully, we inspired some of them to write and draw their own stories.
