Browning in black and white

Today I ran my workshop "The Language of Cartoons: What's So Funny?" at the all-boys Browning School in New York City. The participants were a small group of 12th graders whose Spanish teacher assigned them to adapt a portion of a Spanish-language novel into a graphic novel(la).

They went in not realizing they speak Cartoon.
I went in not speaking Spanish.

They left realizing they speak Cartoon. I left not speaking Spanish.
