Faculty
Tom Motley, Cartoonist
A cartoonist is the proverbial jack-of-all-trades, functioning by turns as writer, cinematographer, graphic designer and illustrator. This course will explore essential components of cartooning: cartoon figure drawing in ink, background basics, comic-strip writing, graphic storytelling, panel and page composition, and creative games. Students will develop a self-published minicomic alongside several class exercises and worksheets. This course is helpful for anyone interested in comics, animation or advertising.
NOTE: Please bring plain white paper, a mechanical pencil, a kneaded eraser and two black Sharpie markers (fine and ultra-fine) to the first session. Students must have access to a scanner or digital camera such as a cell phone camera. All students with an active registration in this course will be given free access to the Adobe Creative Cloud. This course is fully online and offered through a combination of regularly scheduled sessions during the listed course hours, as well as asynchronous material that may include prerecorded lectures and media, and interactive discussions.
