KCDC logoLove reading comics and think it would be fun to try making your own? It is! This class will cover simple techniques for creating comics stories that are clear and understandable to the reader, while best communicating your ideas. Then, we’ll talk about turning your comics into physical objects. Everyone will leave with a one-page comic of his or her own that’s ready to be printed.

Whether you’re just starting out or have advanced questions about self-publishing, Josh is happy to help. No drawing experience is necessary. If you have tools—pens, brushes, pencils—you like to use, please bring them. We’ll have supplies on hand, though.

Instructor Josh Kramer is a cartoonist and journalist. He studied journalism at American University’s School of Communications and earned his M.F.A. in cartooning at the Center for Cartoon Studies in White River Junction, Vt. He freelances locally and self-publishes The Cartoon Picayune, an anthology of comics journalism.
