Program Description

During the workshop, we will: Learn and discuss an overview of the history of independent and autobiographical comics - read and discuss key examples, and gain a detailed image of the landscape of this compelling art-form; Develop your comics drawing and writing skills in a holistic, integral way, using our own personal stories; Explore character development - learn how to create complex and unique characters in your work; Practice figure drawing, and drawing from the "right side of the brain"; and, Explore design, layout, color and editing of pages. This is an online course, but it involves real-time sessions and contact time with your tutor - it's a real workshop with live lectures, individual tuition, assignments and feedback sessions. We've tried to make this remote session as close as possible to the experience of an onsite workshop at CAMP. Full details:
