NH-based cartoonist, musician, and educator Marek Bennett leads discovery-based Comics Workshops for all ages throughout New England and the world beyond! His comics work includes the local history webcomic LIVE FREE AND DRAW!, the graphic novel travel memoir, SLOVAKIA: Fall in the Heart of Europe, numerous community-specific mini-comics projects (such as serving as the Official Cartoonist of New Hampshire’s Weeks Act Centennial), the long-running Xeric Award-winning weekly newspaper strip “Mimi’s Doughnuts”, and more.

Marek’s educational programs incorporate sequential narrative cartooning techniques & music into community-based projects that explore and develop participants’ sense of history, culture, and individual & collective identities. Artists of all ages, backgrounds, abilities discover their own unique capacities for storytelling, performance, and communication as they contribute to projects and presentations in workshop- and discussion-based events. Through focused webcomics like LIVE FREE AND DRAW! andCOFFEE+DUMPLING+KOMIKS, Marek shares his own experiences of travel, research, and community with a wider audience of readers and contributors.
