Comics Class

I’ve been very busy wrapping up the second volume of the Skyclan trilogy and the school year. Twice a week, I teach a comics and cartooning classes to elementary students in NYC. At the end of the semester, I compile all their work in a comics anthology. This group of students did some exceptional work and I just had to share!

This drawing was from an assignment where I had a number of different nouns, adjectives and situation prompts on index cards. The students had to pick random cards and design a character based on the combined description.  This was  a “dumb” “scientist” with “long hair” who “smelled something funny”. I just love this illustration!

Below are more comics and cartoons that appeared in the anthology…
