Online Workshop: Make a Memory Comic with Rubyetc
Online workshop for adults
7 June 2023
19:00 – 21:00
Learn how to create your own comic about a personal memory with illustrator and cartoonist Rubyetc.
There are many ways to draw about our experiences and communicate feelings to an audience. Join illustrator Rubyetc to explore how the comic format can be a brilliant vehicle for exploring our personal experiences in a way that is as silly or serious as you’d like it to be.
With expert advice from Ruby, you will begin with some fun quick fire warm up exercises, followed by exploring different ways to draw yourself and characters in your story.
Using your own memory, personal or daily life experience, Ruby will guide you through using photo prompts, scripting and making thumbnails, to drawing your final comic.
By the end of the session you will have:
- A finished 4-8 panel comic about a specific memory or experience, drawn in your own style
- A series of sketches and process drawings
- Ideas for how you can further your work, if you’d like!
This workshop is suitable for beginners, and no prior experience is needed, however an interest in drawing is recommended.
