Demonstration of Traditional Media Techniques

Event Location

  • Saturday May 7, 2011 | Noon 12:00 PM
  • Hub Comics, Somerville MA 02143

As part of Free Comic Book Day, I give free demonstrations of professional ink-on-paper techniques for making comic books. Lessons included the use of ruling + dip pens, brushes, Ames lettering guide and more. Practices included perspective, drafting and storytelling. Open to all ages.

The demos are planned as a loop of 30-minute sessions, but tend to run over due to popular demand. Unfortunately, there isn't a budget for art supplies. Proactive artists are encouraged to bring their own supplies or used mine during the Questions and Answers segment.

About Free Comic Book Day

An annual event on the first Saturday in May. Participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely FREE, in hopes of reaching those unfamiliar with comic book specialty shops. Check with your local shop for their participation and rules. Learn more.
