WORKSHOP: Cartoon Creation from Concept to Finish

Larry Feign

From comic strips to graphic novels to animation, here’s a workshop for all ages, from child to adult, and any level of drawing experience, from none whatsoever to advanced. Learn the process of cartoon creation from a master of the genre, the very funny and award-winning Larry Feign, who has published fifteen books and whose works have appeared in publications such as Time, Newsweek, The Economist, Fortune, the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Der Spiegel, and Pravda.

Feign will begin with a brief demonstration of how various famous characters are constructed, then assign some brief, fun drawing exercises. A significant portion of the workshop will be about conceiving ideas and writing gags. As Feign says: a well-written cartoon can get away with bad artwork, but a well-drawn cartoon cannot get away with bad writing. Participants will learn techniques that can be used every day to create funny and meaningful cartoons.

Note: this will be a “digital” drawing workshop… meaning FINGERS, not electronics. Drawing materials – 1) black pencil (2B hardness recommended), 2) light blue pencil, 3) eraser / rubber, 4) white paper – will be provided, but participants are encouraged to bring their own if they would like. 

This event will be held at The Opposite House.

THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT. Please email to be placed on the wait list.
