2017 Summer Workshops at CCS!

Fri 5/12/2017

I recently finished up a big freelance project, the school year wrapped up and both of the MFA students I was advising this year (Sandy Bartholomew and Steve Thueson) both passed their thesis reviews!

I am now looking forward to the next few months and starting some new projects. In the mornings I am working on the illustrations for a picture book that my sister Galen wrote and the last 24 pages of the current Isle of Elsi storyline. I'm taking a break from Phase 7 until Galen's book is done, because the next issue kicks off a massive (10? 20? issue) arc that I'm going to be working on for the foreseeable future.

The rest of my work hours these days are being used to prepare for the CCS Summer Workshops that I will be teaching in Vermont this summer.

From June 19-23 my old pal Jon Chad and I will be teaching the Create Comics Workshop. This is our heavily-structuded comics course for beginners. If you've ever wanted to spend a week learning a whole ton of stuff about comics, join us!

Then from June 26-30 I will be teaching an all-new workshop, Beginning Animation. My teaching assistant Mary Shyne and I will be exploring the intersection of animation and comics all week, while drawing short experimental flip books and a few larger hand drawn 2D projects (with pencils! on paper!). It is going to be fun.

There's about a month to still sign up for these, so if you're interested, hop to it! If any CCS alumni are out there, you get 50% off!

These workshops are always great. I wish I could come back this summer for a third time. Someday!

UPDATE: If you use the code "CC1" at checkout for Create Comics, you will save $100 on registration! :D
