Tom Motley Cartoonist

A cartoonist is the proverbial jack-of-all-trades, functioning by turns as writer, cinematographer, graphic designer and illustrator. This course will explore essential components of cartooning: cartoon figure drawing in ink, background basics, comic-strip writing, graphic storytelling, panel and page composition, and creative games. Students will develop a self-published mini-comic alongside several class exercises and worksheets. This course is helpful for anyone interested in comics, animation or advertising. NOTE: Please bring plain white paper, a mechanical pencil, a kneaded eraser and two black Sharpie markers (fine and ultra fine) to the first session.
