Kevin Truglio: Spell Check
Come view original art and prints from the graphic novel Spell Check, which follows the life of a young witch, Sora. A natural talent with a bright future, she’s on the path to join the Witches Hall of Fame. An unexpected event changes everything and she loses her ability to cast a proper spell. Spell Check is an all ages story that both kids and adults will enjoy.

Alameda writer Kevin Truglio is the creator of Spell Check. Kevin has been involved in the indie comic scene for several years. He has self published the indie series Chem 19 (a successful Kickstarter project!) and has edited and contributed stories to other indie self publishers.

Coming Up:
Christina Spiegel: I Heard There’d Be Cake
Friday May 10th, 6-9 pm
Our very own Christina Spiegel will be showing the latest cartoons from her beloved comic, Like All of You. She’s been drawing this series since 2015 with the idea that the characters represent some shared and relatable aspect. They are “like all of you.” And yes, there will be cake! Not just actual cake, but Wayne Thiebaud-inspired paintings. Cakes are often the centerpiece of our significant life experiences: baby showers, birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, retirements and weddings. Christina will present six cakes from some of our less recognized events such as, “Cake for when you’ve completely lost perspective” and “Cake for when you’re a women working at NASA and there’s no space suit for you - no plate for your cake either.”
