Quick and to the point class, though I think it's easier to follow if you have some background in comics or visual storytelling. That said, it provides a great basic and introduces an interesting way to use comics. I want to try it out at once.
Great class and good tips for beginners!
quick, accessible and inspiring- just what I needed to get going and make a diary comic! Thanks Ira :)
