Drawing Comics and Graphic Novels 2

This course is designed to offer students a deeper understanding of visual storytelling and the graphic novel form, from story structure and wordless comics to framing and colour. Each week stimulating creative exercises and discussion on a wide range of topics will inform ongoing project work, alongside critiques and one-to-one feedback. Students will be encouraged to explore their individual voice, with the aim of having made significant progress on a project of their choice by the end of term. Close readings of contemporary graphic novels will further inform students’ own work throughout the course. Students must have completed either Drawing Comics and Graphic Novels 1 at Central or Drawing the Graphic Novel 1 at Shoreditch.
