Your tutor will introduce some examples of his previous work and what you will be working towards. Explore various styles and uses of comic drawing such as creating characters, avatars, designs, logo designs, product packaging, advertising, publishing (be it in books or specifically comic strips , animation storyboards and more!
Cartooning can also be funny, serious, bizarre and is a simple way to communicate.

They will do live drawing, covering basic figure drawing using a simple pose, geometric shapes and doodles. They will then look at how to add animation, with techniques like wizz lines and sound effects.

Frame content is also covered to show you how posing and composition can be used to add a dramatic or humourous effect. Finally we will work on appropriate backgrounds to a cartoon.
