Tom Motley Cartoonist

Comic book inking and realistic ink drawing involve different but overlapping skillsets. This course will explore ways in which the tools and techniques of ink draftsmanship can be put into the service of comic storytelling. Emphasis will be on building skills, value organization and designing an orderly reading experience. Through exercises in line sensitivity, contrast, "noodling" and correcting, and through visual narrative projects, students will learn to effectively cartoon in ink.
