cool workshop you should take

In the category of “things more interesting to blog about than wofford stuff”, my good friend Stan Heller is teaching a class at San Francisco Center for the Book called “Word and Image: An Introduction to Narrative Graphics in Comics.” Stan is the notorious/brilliant father of two of my more notorious/brilliant former LHS students, Sam and Sophia Heller. He and I have had some great, great discussions around comics in recent years, and I’m delighted that he’s taking his wisdom and convictions to the masses (well, Center for the Book, anyway) in this workshop.

Your ability, or lack of ability, to draw won’t be a factor in this class””it’s all about learning the fascinating dynamics of visual storytelling in comics as they have developed over the past 60 years. You’ll explore the graphic styles of manga, Marvel comics, underground comics, photo comics, graphic novels, and other innovative schools of pictorial narrative, then roughly sketch a storyboard to tell your own story, incorporating graphic, pictorial, and textual strategies you’ve learned along the way.
