Nelson preteens Noah Quinn and Tenzin Mint have been busy launching their fledgling artistic enterprise Lion Boy Comics this holiday season.
The pair are selling copies of their animated stories, created using comic strip app BitStrips. Their collaboration began three years ago, but it wasn’t until recently that they decided to take the final step of putting their work up for sale.
“There’s five little stories. One is about winter in Nelson where you have to find the true spirit of winter. Another one’s about Granite Pointe and it’s about being respectful,” said Mint.
“There’s one about being nice to pets where this guy says ‘move’ and another guy says ‘be nice to cats’ and then the cat likes him and he likes the cat,” said Quinn.
The pair plan to give ten percent of their proceeds to the food bank. They will be selling their comics outside Kootenay Co-op.
