What a great class! Super informative, and a great, simple start. :)
I feel like this was an almost seamless and easygoing lesson. It's also reassuring that making a webcomic can be fun and easy, so there's not all this pressure of how to do it. Rather, you just DO IT. :3

Sarah Andersen

Webcomics Artist & Illustrator

Sarah Andersen is a 22 year old cartoonist and illustrator.  She graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2014 and currently lives in Brooklyn.  Her comics are semi-autobiographical and follow the adventures of herself, her friends, and her beloved pets.

Both Sarah’s comics and illustrations have been acknowledged by the Society of Illustrators.  The ongoing webcomic “Sarah’s Scribbles” is currently syndicated on GoComics.   She updates Saturdays and Wednesdays.

Due to a need to distinguish between her illustration and cartooning work, Sarah posts illustrative work separately. You can find that work here.
