Ben spent the summer at a RISD program for high-schoolers (obligatory celebration cake was here.) He majored in comics, and this is his final project. It's five pages long, click to see the entire comic as one long image, then possibly click again to enlarge it so you can read it:

Ben's Avis comic

I can't tell you how proud this comic makes me. Ben has always been a naturally talented artist, but this is a quantum leap up in technique and execution for him. Also, it's a really sweet story.

I've been writing about Ben's progress as an artist here for a long time:

Now at 16, Ben continues to amaze me with what he can do. In the robot movie post, I said, "I've always tried to encourage their creative sides, and they haven't let me down." Still true.
