Join Marek Bennett in creating your own comics! Using blank paper, pencils, ink, and four basic “storytelling elements,” we’ll find out what happens when lines, dots, and blobs turn into mysterious characters and magical worlds with surprising powers and secrets. We’ll also look at how artists and authors use peer feedback to improve their work and get it out to new readers, and ways to self-publish our work as photocopied hand-made “mini-comics.” Marek shares his own tips and tricks from 25 years of creating graphic novels, from his early days drawing daily strips in a college newspaper, to his current “Freeman Colby” Civil War adventure series & his all-new graphic travel memoir, Sharjah Sketchbook.
