3.00 CEUs,
10 Sessions

Felipe Galindo Cartoonist, illustrator, animator, painter

If you like humor and like to create funny drawings, this course is for you. We will talk about the different types of humorous art-cartoons, gags, strips, comics, illustrations, animation, editorial-and analyze the diverse categories of humor-ironic, sarcastic, poetic, whimsical, etc. Whatever your sense of humor is, you'll learn to develop concepts and dialogues in your personal style, merging ideas with drawings to create fully developed works that can be pitched. We will explore the processes professional cartoonists use (like visual composition and caption writing) and discuss diverse categories of humor featured in publications such as The New Yorker, Mad Magazine, and others. The course will address how to submit your work for various professional opportunities, such as print and online markets, syndication, international competitions and even art exhibitions.
NOTE: Please bring drawing samples or your ideas and your choice of tools (sketchbook, tablet, etc.) to the first session.
