Join instructors from Pittsburgh’s Comics Workbook school, and cartoonists Alyssa Berg and Kurt Ankeny, for an immersive weekend of comics creation at Cartoon Crossroads Columbus 2016!
We will examine art and the grid, bringing the strong artistic practices of Berg and Ankeny together with the discipline and rhythm of the grid, as laid out by Comics Workbook founder Frank Santoro. Four hours across two days will be filled with the exploration of a variety of techniques and methods which will inspire the beginner, and challenge the established cartoonist. Comics as jazz; comics as architecture; how a simple index card can transform your sequencing and storytelling process.
Each session will feature the expertise of Alyssa Berg or Kurt Ankeny, with the support of Juan Fernandez and Sally Ingraham. Check out all four sessions for the full experience, or attend just one for a comics jump-start. Whether you join us for an hour or four, you will be sure to take your comics making to a new level.
These workshops are free to all, however we are doing advanced sign ups for the individual sessions from Tuesday, October 4th – Friday, October 7th. We will accept walkins for each session as space allows – sign up in advance to guarantee a seat!
