You’ve been waiting all day for the moment: you’re going to be smooth and say “hi” to the person you’re dying to meet. The bell rings. The hallway is packed with kids. You walk quickly to catch up to him or her. He or she is right beside you! But . . . you keep walking, down the hall and onto your bus. Ugh. You didn’t do it. . . again. If you’ve had something you were dying to do, or something that scared the heck out of you, or was embarrassing, then you have the raw material for a great autobiographical comic! In this workshop with cartoonist Jonathan Todd, you’ll recreate the moment in a detailed, journal-like entry. Then you’ll convert your written scene into the start of a comic: first you’ll make a quick sketch to plan everything out, then draw a detailed version and learn different ways to “ink” it so it’s polished and ready to share.
