Ages 12-17

Learn the basics of illustration and the path to publication from local author and illustrator Jesse Jacobs, whose clients have included The New York Times, Cartoon Network, and Mad Magazine. Jesse will share excerpts from his latest comic book, New Pets, which is available at Shop Museum London. 

Through various drawing exercises, students will work individually and collaboratively to create and develop graphic characters. This workshop will discuss the production fundamentals of dynamic graphic novels, such as storyboarding, character development, and narrative dialogue. Jesse will share his creative process, inspiration, references, preliminary sketches, past projects, and results. No previous drawing experience is required to participate, and all materials are included in the cost of registration. All participants will be entered to win fabulous door prizes!
