This Fall, at Orange County Community College, I will be teaching a new course called Sequential Art: Comics Illustration. The class is described thusly:
Sequential Art offers instruction in the creation of comic books and comic strips as well as topical discussion on the operation of the comic book industry. Students learn about the pitfalls of working in comics, their rights as creators, and how to approach publishers. Course material includes the design of comic book characters, comics illustration and storytelling, self-publishing, submitting work to editors, comic book Creator’s Rights, webcomics, and strong emphasis on comic book inking. Prerequisite: ART 103 or Permission of Instructor 3 credits (2 lecture, 2 lab).
On Tuesday (April 27th), I will be giving a workshop/lecture at the college about Sequential Art: Comics Illustration. I’ll be discussing the course, and the art of creating comics.
