Join Indigenous comics creator Cameron Mukwa (Odawa Two-Spirited Artist and Writer) for a comic-making workshop. Learn the steps of writing for comics, drawing and simple storyboarding. Students will learn how to make a super simple comic, no artistic skill or experience necessary!

Supported by UNL Libraries and the Center for Great Plains Studies, this event is part of the “Confronting the Legendary Great Plains” conference April 2-3 from the Center for Great Plains Studies. A portion of the seats in the workshop are open to those not attending the conference, but seating is limited so please register.


Cameron Mukwa is an illustrator, primarily working in graphic novels. His work shares his Anishinaabe heritage through storytelling and pattern design, as well as his lived experience as a nonbinary transgender person. He loves bright colors and bold designs that represent people of all backgrounds, and his passion is making art about being trans and happy, showing kids of all ages that it’s good to be different.

His debut graphic novel will be published by Scholastic’s Graphix imprint (2024). He is also a sought-after artist for educational publishers, such as Curriculum Associates.

Cameron uses gouache, markers and digital media. His inspiration comes from the resilience of his family and his own lived experience as a Two Spirit person. Common themes in his work are transgender life, gender euphoria, urban fantasy, and Indigenous narrative. His ideal projects would include illustrations that illuminate the LGBTQ and BIPOC experience, symbolic works of fantasy of science fiction, or explorations of established properties from a non-white, non-straight perspective. He also would love to tackle a picture book project.
