Webcomics Lab: Making Webcomics - Brad Guigar

Tuesday January 27, 2015: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Malletts Creek Branch: Program Room

This event is intended for adults and teens grade 9 and up.

Got an idea for a webcomic but don't know where to start? Having trouble finding the time to put into that comics project? Or maybe you just want a break from creating alone in your studio (or the coffee shop) and wish you could work along side of your fellow comics creators? Come to the monthly Webcomics Lab at AADL, where you can make your comics in the company of other cartoonists. Work you finish during the Lab can be submitted for inclusion on the new AADL Webcomics Page!

This month Brad Guigar co-author of How to Make Webcomics, will be our special guest via Skype. Brad has been working on webcomics for over a decade now, starting with Greystone Inn and eventually spinning that off into Evil Inc. He’s been a very active voice in webcomics, working as the editor-in-chief for Webcomics.com, author of The Webcomics Handbook (follow-up to How to Make Webcomics), and one of the hosts for the Webcomics Weekly podcast.
