Draw Club: Glorified Stick-Figure Graphic Novel

1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
Add to Calendar 11/07/2020 01:00 PM 11/07/2020 02:00 PM America/New_York Draw Club: Glorified Stick-Figure Graphic Novel

Join this club online. So, we can't draw out a full 566 page graphic novel in one hour, but we can layout a super simple four-pager that helps you understand the basic mechanics of creating and presenting solid graphic stories. We'll think, we'll thumbnail and then we'll draw like the wind! Glorified stick figures can be so fun and expressive and are a great generic way to learn the ropes. When the hour is done you'll know how to apply your own characters to any length story you'd like to draw. Just apply your own style and a bit of your free time! Presented by Wade Gugino, local cartoonist and creator of West Michigan's weekly Draw Club.

Draw Club: Comic Strip College

1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
Add to Calendar 10/03/2020 01:00 PM 10/03/2020 02:00 PM America/New_York Draw Club: Comic Strip College

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!

Join this club online. Building characters from scratch can help you really understand how they're put together, which makes it so much easier to draw them in different poses, actions and emotions later.
