About ENGS 095 Z3

In Comix Workshop we will create both fictional and non-fictional hand-written and hand-drawn stories that we will compile and print as a book. The course is an intensive exploration of drawing, writing, inking, editing, and publishing cartoons, comics, and graphic narrative. Experience in drawing is not necessary?our interest is in visual clarity and ?writing with pictures? as a creative means to self-expression. We begin with single-panel gag-cartoons (New Yorker style) and build to four-panel strips, single tabloid pages, to multi-page stories. In-class exercises and homework focus on the building blocks of comics: design, drawing, writing, composition, narrative structure, inking, and lettering. Keeping a daily diary comic will heighten students? skills of observation of the world around them and daily lives. For the final project students create a self-published mini-comic from thumbnail sketches through scanning, Photoshop editing (with an in-class tutorial), layout, and printing. Discussion of past and current comic artists and genres, comic book reports, and on-going readings and critiques of student work provide insight and inspiration.
