About This Class

Bring comic panels to life in this class covering Motion Comics!  We'll be mostly using Adobe Photoshop to animate public domain comics from the 1950s Golden Age; we'll also cover a bit of Adobe After Effects for more precise animation techniques.

I have always been interested in the visual arts from an early age- drawing, painting, and clay- but around my high school years I became interested in photography for the social aspect of involving other people, the adventure inherent in seeking out pictures, and the presentation of reality that wasn't limited by my drawing skills.  

One thing in my work that has stayed consistent over the decades since then is I have an equal interest in the reality of the lens next to the fictions we can create in drawing, painting, animation, graphic design, and sound design.  As cameras have incorporated video and audio features, and as Adobe's Creative Cloud allows for use of a plethora of mind-bending tools, I now make video art pieces that are based in photography but utilize time lapse, clay and paper stop motion animation, graphic animation, text and sound to expand the same intersection of reality and pop surrealism.
