MAKING COMICS FOR KIDS!
October 24th 12-1:30pm
Comics and sequential art are an ancient and valuable art that extends around the globe. From stories of Calvin & Hobbes to Superman to Sailor Moon to Boondocks, the visual language of comics helps children develop a love of reading while broadening their visual vocabulary and storytelling skills. In this workshop, award-winning comics author David Gallaher will discuss the history, production, and theory of comic storytelling, while empowering students to deconstruct and create their own comics from plot to the printed page. You don’t need to be a great artist to be a great cartoonist.
David Gallaher is an comic book artist based out of Brooklyn New York. He has received multiple Harvey Award nominations and won The Best Online Comic Award for his work on High Moon for DC Comics. David was an early pioneer of digital comics developing projects for Marvel’s Iron Man, Captain America, and Spider-Man as well as Box 13 – the first comic designed specifically for the iPhone – for ComiXology. He has served as a consulting editor for Attack on Titan, Sailor Moon, and Fairy Tail for Kodansha. He is represented by the Hill-Nadell Agency
