This will be an hour long presentation (with intermission) about how to make webcomics. Jey will include tools, computer programs, websites to post to and how to promote yourself.
Afterwards there will be a Q&A and a workshop. Bring any questions involving comics or self-publishing you might be wondering about.
If you’re up for more after that, Jey will be hosting a workshop for the remainder of the time for comic making!
“Bring any comic ideas with you and we’ll all work on comics together, whether that’s writing your pitch or outline, thumbnailing, or going straight to inking a page. I’ll be walking around asking about what your working on and giving advice or answering more questions.”
