Join Little Italy Branch staff for an in-depth exploration of writing and illustrating comics and graphic novels. This 5-week series, will cover writing, penciling, inking and more. Each participant will work on a 4-page original comic, and most weeks will feature a professional comic creator guest who will lend their expertise to help participants refine their comics. Finished comics may be selected to be featured at Pocket Con 2020, happening online on December 5.
Sign up online, then pick up necessary art supplies at the Little Italy Branch. A supply list will be sent to registrants for those who may prefer to purchase their own supplies.
