COMMUNITY NEWS: Amy Chu Writes Comic for MOCA Museum!

Comics Experience alum and Creators Workshop member Amy Chu recently wrote and produced a comic book with artist Louie Chin for the Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA).

The comic book, A Visit to the Museum of Chinese in America, was produced by Amy and Louie for the museum's 2011 gala event.

According to Amy, the co-chair of the museum was looking for something different to put in the goody bags for their annual black tie fundraiser.

"I suggested that they do the history of the museum in comic format," Amy said.

"I had seen Louie Chin's work at MOCCAFest earlier this year [in 2011] and thought his style would be great for this project. He was a gem to work with, even insisting on hand lettering it himself."

You can read the full comic book on Louie Chin's website right here.

Congrats, Amy and Louie!
