In this two hour workshop attendants will make a four panel diary comic of their own, which will be assembled into a zine distributed to each attendee after the event! We’ll start off by looking at a wide variety of diary comics and then talk the basics of how to construct an effective comic. Then we will help each other explore mediums and ideas to create their own four panel masterpiece. At the end of the class we will scan our pieces, and a zine with the classes participants will be sent out a few days after the class is done! hopefully you’ll leave inspired and try your hand at creating daily diary comics for weeks or months a time. They’re like cool hand drawn Instagram stories.
Artists of all skill levels welcome!
