Hey folks in Vancouver. A couple of our local talented cartoonists are teaching courses at Emily Carr (page 23)on comicking. Check out Miriam Libicki’s site for more info on what she will be doing.
Robin Thompson will be teaching The Contemporary Comic: An Introduction
Comics bring together the arts of storytelling and illustration. In this course, you will learn about building stories through illustration, dialogue, and character development. Body language, passage of time, flow, perspective, composition, and personal style will also be addressed. Through exercises, projects, and critiques, you will learn to develop your own ideas from concept to final product.
Sep 19 – Oct 31
Sat 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm
And Miriam’s course is The Graphic Memoir: An Introduction
From Maus to Persepolis to Blankets, memoirs in graphic novel form are among the most powerful stories being told today. This course offers practical and wide-ranging techniques for translating your life experiences into sequential art. Classroom writing and drawing exercises, as well as take-home assignments, help you develop a creative process from brainstorm to script to layouts and editing. These projects, as well as group and individual critiques, will guide you towards effective storytelling in creating an original graphic memoir.
