How to Draw Graphic Novels Class

The graphic novel class that I taught at the Conway (NH) Public Library has come to an end. We started in September and ended just this Wednesday, meeting once a week (except for holidays).  This class was in addition to the History of Comics class I was teaching at the Institute of Art and Design at New England College.

It was an honor and great fun to teach the talented cartoonists who attend the Kennett Middle School. The three students created about sixty pages of sequential narrative with their own plots and characters.

There are stories about

  • a playground that brings friends together,
  • a battle between housepets and squirrels, and
  • a lonely doll who finds love. 

All of these stories will soon be on display in the library.

Yes, there is talk of doing another class this fall!
