Art of Inking for Comics with Jim Higgins – Apr 25 – Jun 13 7PM-10PM $295

(see payment button below)

In this eight-week class, you’ll learn various different techniques to ink either your artwork or the work of others.  You’ll learn how to use various types of brushes and India ink, dip pens with different types of nibs, and an array of disposable pens and brush pens that can often mimic the effects done with those other traditional tools, but with less mess and less maintenance. The art of inking is not something taught very often, even in art schools.  But we’ll teach you the ropes here.  This class is great for illustrators, comics artists, or anyone interested in putting ink on paper.

The workshop is led by Jim Higgins, who has been a writer and editor in the comics business for 20 years. He has done screenwriting and been a comics consultant for films and TV. He was an editor and assistant editor at DC Comics in the Paradox Press division and is the editor and publisher of New Thing, an international anthology of short comics stories. He taught comic book storytelling for eight years at The School of Visual Arts. He teaches or has taught classes on writing and drawing comics at CalArts, UCLA Extension Program, Cal State Northridge, and at Otis College of Art and Design. He created the long-running comic book writing and drawing program Meltdown University at Meltdown Comics.
