Join this club online. Last month we drew characters...now let's bring them to life! A comic strip gives us room to show the passage of time, dramatic pauses, adding new characters or backgrounds to interact with and to carry on dialogue. You don't have to have attended last month's character drawing to participate. We'll start from scratch and have you drawing funny, well thought-out cartoon strips by the end of our session. Thinking through how to create a cartoon is great practice for the hundreds of other things in life you have to communicate or present well. Let's get drawing!
