Meet the Organizers: Liz Jones, Graphics

Liz Jones has been involved with the Cybils since 2007… and always with graphics! Her blog hasn’t been updated much due to a freshly minted art studio, Liz Jones Arts which opened during the Cybils period last year. This has turned out to be a whole new way to get kids interested in graphics.. even when the local schools don’t carry them, and Cybils titles have proven to be wonderfully inspiring for her local budding comic artists. When she’s not teaching art at the studio, she’s teaching writing to high schoolers and  middle schoolers online, and children’s lit to college students at the University of Pittsburgh… and taking care of her own three kids, all of whom have become graphic novel gateways to the kids living in the graphic novel desert that surrounds them. Find her on Twitter @lizjonesbooks.
