FNMS 230 - Comics and Graphic Novels
During this course students will study the language of comics and learn how to develop original concepts and characters to create visual stories.
Over the course of the semester we’ll study comics, graphic novels, and sequential art as a medium for communicating stories, ideas, and experiences. Students will learn the fundamentals of how to self-publish a short comic book; the workflow of taking an idea from start to finish using digital tools, drawing, and book layout software.
Generating ideas, writing concept, developing characters, and designing visual language will be practiced through weekly sketchbook assignments, and in-class drawing and writing projects. During the semester each student will produce several short comic projects and one longer length comic.
