Comics workshop – Cough or DEATH

In comics, fun, work on 13/08/2012 at 07:46

As per 2009, I´ve had the privilege of holding a yearly comics workshop at Metropolia University of Applied Science.

It´s engaging, intense and I´m always amazed at how much good stuff people can make in just five days.

This year, we conceptualized, wrote, pencilled, inked, colored, layouted and printed (30 copies) a zine called “Cough or DEATH!”

Illustrator freehand drawing excercise

In illustration, work on 03/08/2012 at 10:03

I would never ask my students to do something I wouldn´t do myself.
Here´s a self portrait, sketched pen on paper, using an iMac as a mirror. Then scanned, imported into Illustrator and drawn out. Then coloured, edited and mutated to show the flexibility of vector graphics.
