Nieto has conducted comic book-making and anime workshops at libraries throughout the country and has taught at various colleges, according to his website.

He created sketches and art for set designs used by film studios Disney and Universal as an artwork consultant.

“Drawing has many benefits, such as developing problem-solving skills and self-confidence. It increases imagination and motor skills,” Su Kenworthy, library youth services supervisor, said in a statement. “With the anime drawing program, teens and tweens can also learn a little bit about Japanese culture and may be inspired to become a world-famous illustrator one day!”

Enrollment is recommended ahead of the workshop through the calendar at bocalibrary.org.
