July 37-31, 2009 Double Midnight Comics in Manchester, New Hampshire will be having a 5 day summer comics workshop featuring Daniel Larson (me) of circlecomics.com! The workshop is $50 per person and runs from 2PM to 4PM. All supplies are included in the cost, you don’t have to bring anything except your imagination!
Currently registration is open to anyone and everyone, however we may split it into 2 age grops depending on the response. We don’t want 12-year-olds to have to share time with 30-year-olds.
The five-day workshop begins on Monday July 27 from 2-4 PM with a brief history of and guided tour through the world of comics both in print and digital. We’ll talk all about how to make comics, what materials to use and prepare to start making our own comics over the course of the next 4 days.
Day 2 we start making comics! Working from a prepared outline (not a full script, you can put your own words in) we’ll thumbnail, pencil, ink and letter the first of 4 pages to be completed by each participant over the course of the workshop.
Day 3 is page 2 (whoa that’s confusing). Just like Day 2, we’ll spend this 2 hour session thumbnailing, penciling, inking and lettering a full page of comics.
Day 4 is page 3. Just like Day 2, but page 3!
Day 5 we finish up the last of 4 pages.
At the end of the workshop each participant will take home 4 pages of their own original art that they created over the 5 days, all of the supplies they worked with and a knew insight into a growing art form that will last them the rest of their lives!
