About This Class

Peel back the curtain and see how an action comic comes to life! Join Christopher Hastings — creator of The Adventures of Dr. McNinja — for a 30-min class showing his process for creating a black-and-white action comic.

This class has a sly sense of humor, moves quickly, and covers a lot. Learn how to adapt prose into a comics script; lay out panels for visual interest; and sketch, draw, and ink a comic in a style of your choosing. Plus, along the way, Christopher recommends a number of additional resources for further study.

You should take this class if you're interested in comics, love Christopher's acclaimed style, or simply want to see a master at work. Artists, illustrators, writers, and enthusiasts of all skill levels welcome.
