Class Experience

A little about myself: Hello, I'm David Shear, I'm a professionally trained cartoonist who majored in cartooning at The School of Visual Arts in Manhattan, NY. I've been drawing comics for years as personal projects and have a graphic novel in the works. 
I would recommend students who feel inclined to work outside of class on their comic. This will very much be a class where students get out what they put in. 
1. Paper Suggestions: 9x12, 11x14 or 14x17 Drawing paper or Sketch Pad 2. Drawing supplies: Pencils Erasers 12 or 18inch ruler 3. Inking supplies: Micron Pens- Black- 05, 08 Brush Markers-(any brand ) Black, Sharpie markers -Black. If you have any questions about the supplies don't hesitate to message me, my inbox is always open and I will get back to you within a day.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
3 hours per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
