     Comics are a great way to communicate and express ideas to others. This workshop is a low-budget, do-it-yourself approach to making comics. Participants will learn step-by-step basics to designing and producing comics, including page layout, panel design, penciling & inking, etc.
    Class is limited to 20 participants so early queuing is recommended.

  • 3:00–4:00 :: Creating a Silent Comic -- How to Tell a Story Without Using Words
    With Peter Bagge

     This simple comic strip workshop involves telling a story relying solely on imagery and foregoing all text.  The purpose is to both learn and emphasize the visual aspect of comic strip story telling. Starting with a one panel drawing, participants will then be encouraged to expand their panel (or even page) count following this same simple rule. How ambitious one wants to be is totally up to the participant.
