2017-2018 CLASSES

Classes continue throughout the year following a college type schedule.  Each course is designed to aide you in your creation of your own personal graphic novel works.

Spring Semester II - May 23-Jul 11 2018 -
Lettering and Coloring
Often dismissed as "piece" work-- nothing makes your work look more professional than good lettering and coloring and there is a craft to both.
Good lettering makes your characters "act" and deliver the dialogue the way you intend it to come across to your reader.  We will also cover how to create your own professional looking balloons.
Good coloring sets the mood and tone and establishes new settings.

Freelancer Experience
We'll start the first week with an overview of the things I've experienced in my twenty years as a freelance comic book artist.  There's no filter and nothing but straight shooting.  Then 
one of the chances for us to have some fun!  In this four week intensive class  you'll write a script that one of the other students will draw and you'll draw the script provided to you.   This is a terrific lesson in collaboration as well as a chance to see what it's like to be a freelancer.  I'll be acting as the editor of this project and we'll make a printed book edition of the final results at the end of the session.

Scripting and Plotting

Everyone can write-- everyone can draw it just takes dedication.
In this session we'll work on writing our own scripts and plots-- we'll cover capturing dialogue and examine writing techniques like red herrings and creating plot twists and turns.  You'll learn how to draft an effective full script and how to write a quick plot, then schedule a deadline to get that project going.
