Creating Comics Workshop at Big Adventure Comics in Santa Fe

Creating Comics Workshop at Big Adventure Comics | Thursday, February 20 | 6:30–8:30 pm | Big Adventure Comics | 801 Cerrillos Rd., Suite B | Santa Fe, NM

Word and image combine in comics to form a storytelling medium like no other. Discover the visual language that makes comics unique in this free fast-paced, hands-on workshop. Learn how comic techniques apply to other forms of communication. Get a fresh perspective on your own creative work. Take the first steps to becoming a comic creator. Though you will be drawing, this is not an illustration class — stick figures are just fine!

Presented by 7000 BC and AIGA New Mexico.

Update: check out this video by Narrative Media:

Come Jam in Minneapolis Thursday, February 6th

The Minneapolis Cartoonist Conspiracy meets at 6:30 until 10:00 the first Thursday of every month at Diamond’s Coffee Shoppe in Northeast.

Generally, we draw collaborative “jam” comics, socialize and drink caffeinated beverages. Afterwords, we often have uncaffeinated beverages somewhere else.

The meetings are open to anyone who wants to draw with us, and the results are posted here sooner or later (and sometimes even printed).

Diamond’s Coffee Shoppe
1618 Central Avenue Northeast
Minneapolis, Minnesota

Bus info here.

Please spend some money at Diamond’s while you’re there, even if it is just a cuppa coffee… they are excellent hosts, and we wanna stay welcome there.
