About This Class

If you love to draw and tell stories, a diary comic is a great way to use your art skills to reflect on daily life. With a few basic steps and a little structure, you'll be on your way to creating comics about the otherwise lost moments in your day to day.

Ira's classes are fun and always easy to follow.
Short and sweet! This is a good lesson on breaking things down into the basics, which is in essence all one needs to get started creating any type of artwork.
