I have a lot of fun events coming up, including brand new cartooning classes for kids and adults respectively! I think both of these are going to be really fun. I’m also doing a few free online panels and appearances—I will update this page as they are announced publicly.

Saturday Morning Cartooning and Comics (Adult Workshop Series)

Open to students 18+ ~ $90 to $180 (sliding scale)

September 19th – October 10th

Storytelling has always been an important and meaningful form of communication. As a storytelling medium, comics use juxtaposed images in an intentional sequence to convey their message in an impactful, visual way. In this fun and engaging 4-session Lab, we will lead you step-by-step through the creative process of creating comics – from making characters, to structuring them into a story, to working through more technical aspects of comic-making. Each Lab session will incorporate a combination of the theory, instructor demos, and in-class activities designed to quickly get you hands-on experience drawing cartoons and comics in your own style. All skill levels are welcome, and each participant will leave having created their very own comic!

More coming soon!

Veteran’s Cartooning Workshop

posted in: News | 0

 

A few weeks ago, Kurt Shaffert and I taught a 3-day class at The Center for Cartoon Studies for veterans from the Vermont VA.

Some vets made comics about coming home from the war and adjusting to civilian life, while others just told weird silly strange stories that were each poignant in their own way.

Kurt and I spent last night printing an anthology of their stories, and NBC news from Boston came to do a story on our project!

And yesterday a workshop for teachers on making and reading comics at St. Michael’s College in Burlington!

I didn’t take any photos at St. Michaels, but here’s a drawing of me and James Sturm that I did for our presentation–
