The goal of this course is to make mini-comics from start to finish. Students will experiment with writing and drawing short narrative comics, while also being introduced to book design and Risograph printing techniques. Comics will be analyzed not only in terms of writing and illustration, but also in terms of color, printing, book production and short-form editing. Printing and reproducing booklets with a Risograph will be covered. By the end of the course, students will have completed several mini-comics, have gained a thorough understanding of Risograph printing, and created an editioned multicolored mini-comic.
NOTE: This course includes access to the RisoLAB only; access to the 5th floor printmaking facilities is not included.
