The Adventures in Cartooning 6-week session is off to a great start! This past week I had a blast teaching a full class of 20 artists in Long Valley and a group of 12 in Mendham Township. 

For the first class, we drew inspiration from a yellow sponge (I’m sure you know him!) and discussed character development, setting, and plot. The students brainstormed and sketched their awesome ideas.

What a variety of comic book characters they are developing! Character ideas can come from anywhere… from your best friend or your pet chickens or even a hot-dog shaped pencil case!

Next week we begin storyboarding and drawing our actual comic book pages. Can’t wait!
