COMICS CAMP F.A.Q.:
(Q) But what will we DO at Comics Camp?
We’ll do lots of demos & answer all your comics questions, plus we have a few structured activities you can try — but mostly, you can use our lesson time & your own independent work time to MAKE ORIGINAL COMICS featuring the stories that only YOU can tell!
You can work when & how you like — & get any feedback you need from Marek & your fellow campers.
(Q) What kinds of comics are we talking about here?
ALL kinds of comics — whatever you’re most excited to dream up & work on! Here’s an example of one of Marek’s demo projects:
(Don’t worry, we’ll go a much slower during our lessons… This video shows my hands drawing @ 12x speed!!)
(Q) What kinds of tools & art supplies will I need?
You can join the lessons with any kind of paper, pencil, & black-ink pen. Everything else is optional! See TOOLS & MATERIALS for more info & ordering links …
