My next Introduction to Comic Book Production course at VanArts is scheduled to start up on May 13th (UPDATE — We’ve pushed the start date back to June 3rd!). If you’re in Vancouver and interested in learning the ins and outs of drawing comics, now is the time to sign up!
This is a 12-week course that runs on Monday nights. I take my students through the process of writing, thumbnailing, penciling, inking and lettering a four-page comic. There’s a strong emphasis on clear storytelling, in addition to teaching all the other things I’ve learned during my thirteen years as a comic book artist.
Feel free to email me any questions you may have about the course. Or head over to the VanArts website to register now: www.vanarts.com/courses/introduction-comic-book-production
FYI, I normally start my courses in January, May and September but, due to some tentative travel plans, the fall course probably won’t be happening this year.
Still in high school? I’ve got another comics course to recommend:
Teens Only – Graphic Novels is a week-long intensive course being taught in July by Jonathon Dalton. It’s a UBC pre-university course intended for high school students aged 15-18.
My night class isn’t really geared toward that age bracket, so this looks like a good alternative for teens who want to learn about making comics.
