Comics & Graphic Vignettes – From Scribble to Strip

One afternoon session, 2:00pm – 5:00pm
Saturday, July 11

Fee: $20
Class limit 15 people

Whether you feel superhuman or just super human, come draw your story at this workshop. We’ll explore the history of Asian American comic and graphic novel artists, then jump into the creative process ourselves. From ideas to inking, we’ll learn drawing and storyboarding techniques, and everyone will create their own character and 3-panel strip from scratch. We’ll be reading, discussing, and drawing all things comics – what better way to spend your afternoon?

Both experienced and new artists are welcome. Please bring your own supplies: a pencil, eraser, and black fine liner pen (Micron is ideal).

Wendy Xu is an illustrator and a comics artist based in Brooklyn. Her recent work includes the pencil art and layouts for the 12 page comic that was on display at the New York Historical Society’s Chinese in America exhibit. She is currently working on a variety of short comics as well as a graphic novel about a Chinese American witch and a demon boy band.
