Cartooning in the Digital Age

Saturday, November 8, 2014 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm
Making comic strips might just be the funnest job in the world, and thanks to the Internet it's easier than ever to put your work in front of potential readers. In this two-hour program, veteran cartoonist Bill Barnes (Unshelved, Not Invented Here) will show you how to make comic strips, publish them on the web, and maybe make some money too!

The first hour, The Basics of Cartooning, is a fast and fun workshop for middle schoolers through adult, covering every step in creating a comic strip: creating memorable characters, writing dialog, lettering, pencilling, inking, and coloring.

The second hour, The Technology and Business of Cartooning, is oriented towards mature teens and adults. Bill describes how he uses computers to create and publish comic strips to the Internet, and describes how he makes money doing it.

Attendees are welcome to attend one or both hours. It's perfectly okay to leave if the discussion becomes too technical and/or irrelevant for you!
