Students are encouraged to do a master copy of a cover featuring a character chosen from an slate of 5 mainstream comic book superheroes. Students will be looking at the artist Jack Kirby and why he is widely regarded by the comics industry as ‘ the king ‘ of comic art. Students will then work off of a script provided by the instructor and thumbnail out three pages in their sketchbooks showing their interpretation of how the script will transpire. Lastly students will design their own character based on four key traits and then put that character in a cover where they draw, in and color their character. Alternatively students can chose to re deign an existing character in fandom and to their own take on that character. The goal of this workshop is to give students insight into and an appreciation for the comic making process.
