Getting Started

Yes, I've been reading American Elf by James Kochalka.  I am experimenting in ways to get my ideas down faster.  Cardstock instead of bristol. Markers instead of dip pens (sometimes).  I have too many ideas that I think would make good comics that never get to paper.  I'm going to try going daily for a while.  We'll see how long I can keep it up.

Question and Answer

I have been reading Kochalka's American Elf. For ten years, he has created a "diary strip" every single day. I'm going to give this at try. The rule for myself is to do on, but to give myself permission to be less than perfect.

Cartoon Expressions

We did a lesson with cartooning facial expressions. Everybody made up a character and then drew the same character with different expressions. This is my teacher's example.
