Through a planned series of lectures, demonstrations and assignments, students will explore the medium of comics as a vehicle for storytelling and narrative communication. Using a combination of imagery and typography, students will complete assignments that will further their understanding of panel and page composition, controlling pace and mood in a story, and sequential writing and character development. During the process of these projects, students will be introduced to various techniques that include a mixture of computer-based media and traditional media to develop preliminary sketches and complete finished pages. Emphasis will be placed on story development and the idea of the artist as creator.
