Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
By the end of the course, students will be able to:
  1. Students will learn to design a comic book through the whole process of...
      Drawing, lettering, inking on paper, and editing on the computer.
  2. Students will learn to establish a plot, point of view, setting, and conflict in their comic stories.
  3. Students will learn to brainstorm and writing their own script/storyboard through the process of story development 
      (Language skills are engaged).
     The process would involve reinforcing and improving of their literacy skills through the arts 
      by engaging in a fun, project-oriented, and creative process (Academic Reinforcement).
  4. Students will be able to draw out their own comic book panels and edit them on the computer.
  5. Students will be understand the "layout" process of setting up a comic book page for print. 
      (When doing layout students will learn things like Margins, Trim Lines, Full Bleeds, etc.)
I am a professional cartoonist, writer, and comic book publisher. I have published comic books, comic strips, children's books, and graphic novels throughout the world. I print around 2000 to 4000 comic books per issue released. I use various printers in Canada, South Korea, and Hong Kong for my printing.

My published comic series include "Jonathin Quackup of the Planet", "Miced" and "Raytoons Cartoon Avenue". 

I am also a credentialed teacher. I have taught cartooning classes for 20 years and Comic Book related class for over 10 years. I have taught these classes for both adults and children in colleges, schools, and community centers. I have helped many children and adults get their comics created and published. 
Optional: Students can work on their comics in between class times, as well as during class. (See ITINERARY section above.)

I am available in between classes if any students have any questions and give feedback. They can either send me a private message on Outschool or post their question on the Outschool page. If they have comic panels that they would like me to look at, they can send me those as well.

While classes are normally 50-55 minutes, I am willing to stay on Zoom sometimes after class if a student needs help with their comics or have any questions.
 1 file available upon enrollment
Materials Needed: ✓ Computer & Scanner (or a drawing/graphics tablet may be used instead) 📢 Please install Zoom on the same device as the art software being used. That way the instructor will be able to see what the student is doing and be able to help the student, if he or she is having any difficulties. ✓ Photoshop is recommended. If Photoshop isn’t an option for you,... A Photoshop alternative that I would recommend is called Photopea, which in online-based, and can be found here: https://www.photopea.com If the student has a different program that they are already familiar with and wish to use for the class, feel free to check with me to see if the program will work or not. ✓ Pencils and Erasers ✓ Paper ✓ Fine Point & ultra fine point permanent markers or 🖊️Sharpies (Not needed if a drawing/graphics tablet is being used) Optional Materials: ✓ Comic Books (For examples and ideas on a comic story can be laid out.) ✓ Printer with Printer Paper
The teacher will provide verbal feedback in class.  If they need any assistance with their panels in between class times, the teacher will also provide short written feedback to students, 
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Please be sure all comic stories are school appropriate for young audiences. I cannot allow any content with nudity, violence, profanity, or adult content into the classroom.

As the comic books will be published in actual comic book stores and other places, I also cannot allow comics with characters copyrighted by someone else. No Mickey Mouse, Avengers, Superman, Batman, etc. (Unless its a parody of those characters.)

Feel free to message me if you have any questions.
