We had a very successful community outreach event in raising #autismawareness at ACE comic con. Attending the event was Sole creator of Focus Comic Yvonne Wan; main artist and internship coach, Douglas Hebert, Autistic intern Tabidi. Douglas Hebert who is also a certified art teacher, provided a free art work shop for kids at the show for the extended weekend. We gave away some great prizes, and our sole creator Yvonne Wan presented the prizes. Special guest Wendy (a representative of Embassy Suites Pioneer Square) had the pleasure of presenting the main prize during the award giving ceremony.
