This course is for students who are interested in creating comics, as well as producing thoughtful, tangible art objects. The goal is to create narrative-based minicomics from start to finish. Students will experiment with writing and drawing short comics, and learn to use Risograph to print and assemble them. Throughout the course they will be challenged to produce works within the constraints of this printing process. We will analyze comics not only through text and image, but also through color, physicality and printing technique. By the end of the course, students will have completed multiple zines, with the final project being a print run of a multicolor minicomic.
