Orland Park Public Library is hosting its own mini comic con for the third year in row on Saturday, July 22 starting at 10 a.m. Each year OPPL CON, the library’s own comic con, includes an “Artists’ Ally” in room 104 where artists bring their work to the library to show the community. This year the library has the fortune to host 9 different groups of artists. Some of the artists include Beta 3 Comics, Mystery Unincorporated, Sol Comics, Kumate Works, Cinders and Glitters, and the Sketchy Duo. Links to all the arts’ webpages are available at the library’s website. Children will have a chance to take a picture with a snow queen from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and a web slinging superhero from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. thanks to Premier Princess Parties. Patrons are encouraged to dress as their favorite characters like Superman, Spock, and Maleficent as well. Events run through the day, including a special Superhero storytime at 10 a.m., themed crafts at 11 a.m. in Youth Services, and a costume parade at 1 p.m. Teens are invited to participate in the Super Smash Brothers Tournament in the storytime room at 2 p.m., and adult patrons might enjoy two discussion panels held upstairs in the computer lab on The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones at 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. respectively. Library patrons can scoop up a sweet treat just outside of the library front doors at 11 a.m. from TCBY. The library would like to thank all its sponsors including Burger 21, Mod Pizza, Premier Princess Parties, and TCBY for helping make this event happen. While visiting the library Saturday, patrons can get a temporary tattoo, take a superhero picture at the photo booth, attend superhero training, and stop by the lobby to see the library’s own 3D printer in action any time between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. For more information, visit the library’s special OPPL CON webpage at http://www.orlandparklibrary.org/comiccon or call 708-428-5100.

Timelapse-NOLA Courtyard in Casein I've been doing some small painting projects while waiting for a diagnosis on my wrist. Painting isn't as difficult as drawing for me right now. When we vacationed in New Orleans, we were upgraded to a room that opened on this fabulous courtyard.
