I didn't get to finish the 10 pages since I was too anal to just get it done in the first round... this pic is the third round of the entire process of writing, drawing, and inking. I wanted to get into the darker side of the story. Yes, half of it is true, I just made some of it a bit more exciting like upgrading streets gangs to mobs and I used a fictional character.

Assignment: Lynda Barry comic

Draw a two-page comic inspired by Lynda Barry and based on one of these prompts:
= Regrets--Things you'd like to make right.
= Happiest ever.
= Ten cars from your childhood.
= Other people's moms and dads.
= Dogs, pets--loose animals

Bring in your original drawings to share. Also post the comic to the class blog. Upload the two pages separately. Be sure that your words and texts are clear and readable when you click to enlarge the images on the blog.

Next week we'll practice inking. So you must bring in a brush and pen, some ink, and tracing paper. You'll probably also need some paper towels.

Assignment: Dialogue

For this assignment we'll focus on words and dialogue. Write or find a script for a one-page comic. (Sample script below.) Draw the page twice, changing where you break the lines and sentences, and inserting or removing pauses to see how it transforms the drama. How does the feeling change if you put lots of dialogue in a single word balloon? What if you split that same text into several balloons? What if you add a pause, or pauses?

Post your work to the class blog and bring in your original drawings to share with the class.

Over the coming weeks we'll begin working with ink, so please acquire a quill pen, brush, and racing paper. (See guidelines in "How-To" suggestions at top of right column.)

Extra challenge:
In this week's comic, while repeating the page of dialogue, turn it into a story in which the same characters for some reason are repeating the same lines. Perhaps add a new page between as a transition.

Sample script:
William Shakespeare's "Macbeth"

[A desert place.
Thunder and lightning. Enter three Witches]

First Witch: When shall we three meet again
In thunder, lightning, or in rain?

Second Witch: When the hurlyburly's done,
When the battle's lost and won.

Third Witch: That will be ere the set of sun.

First Witch: Where the place?

Second Witch: Upon the heath.

Third Witch: There to meet with Macbeth.

First Witch: I come, Graymalkin!

Second Witch: Paddock calls.

Third Witch: Anon.

ALL: Fair is foul, and foul is fair:
Hover through the fog and filthy air.
