This class will cover everything you need to know to create your own 8-page mini comic and get it out in the world.  I’ll show you some of the most exciting alternative comics being created right now. We’ll do writing and drawing exercises to help you hone your voice and discover the materials and style that are right for you. We’ll discuss how to develop and organize your story, create engaging characters, and prep files for print. We’ll also talk about how to use book design and binding techniques to get your comic to stand out on a shelf and ways to distribute your work once you've created it.
