come and draw comics

  • to
  • This location is shown only to members

  • Come and draw comics, talk about comics art and cartooning, get feedback on projects you might be working on.

    The meeting will run to a loose and flexible schedule.

    We'll start by doing some simple drawing exercises, probably some quick (clothed) life drawing to warm up, probably for the first hour or so.

    Following this I'll run some sort of workshop on comics composition for an hour or two.

    The remainder of the afternoon we can just scribble away, have a chat, show work, get feedback.

    All this is fairly open to change on the day-- if you're new to the group and daunted by any of the above, you're welcome to come along and sit on the sidelines and observe. Or if you want to come and draw your own stuff and just chat to other comics nerds, that's fine too. The more the merrier.

    I'll be set up with a sign out from 11.30, we normally seem to break up around 4.30 but there isn't any official end point.

    Any questions just bung them in the comments.

    Re Farhan's suggestion. Personally, I like the idea of a quick 'go-round' at the start to say BRIEFLY what we got done since last meeting (if anything!) & a quick go-round at the end to say what we'd like to get done by the next meeting would help me make progress. In depth critiques will swallow up my precious meeting-lots-of-different-people time!

      Thanks, Carrie! What I was planning to do for the next meeting (10th December) was to have a quick one-an-a-half hour workshop showing an approach to composing a comics page to start the session, and have the rest of the session for the usual chat. I think we could have a "show and tell"/progress report at the beginning of the chat session (so around 1.30), so people who don't want to come for the drawing bit can later for that to show what they have done.
