Online Workshop 7/13: Comic Strips 101 - Ink Drawing Techniques


Class Option
This online workshop takes place on Wednesday, July 13th from 5 PM to 7 PM PT via Zoom Meeting. You will receive login directions before the workshop.
Welcome to cartooning & inking 101 with a dip nib pen! Drop your iPencil or tablet stylus and come get your hands covered in ink with me! 

In this class, we will start out with a brief look into the history of the comic strip, peruse some stellar pen & ink cartoonists, and get to know how to use all the different nibs that come in your custom Speedball set! After that sufficient warm-up, we’ll plan out and execute a four-panel comic by thumb-nailing it, penciling it, and then inking it. The theme for this exercise is “Your Morning Routine,” so think about that ahead of class if you’d like. 

By the end of the class, you will have a practice sheet of different nib mark-making to refer to and a finished mini auto-bio comic documenting your morning routine’s most cherished (or hilarious, or loathed?) moments, fully inked and ready to show off!
