Drawing the Graphic Novel 2

In this course students will develop their own graphic novels or graphic short stories. Exercises will be set each week to stimulate creativity and promote a deeper understanding of visual storytelling and graphic techniques, taking inspiration from cinema and literature as well as from the graphic novel form itself. Critiques, discussion and one-to-one feedback will help students explore the potential of their individual voice with the aim of making significant progress on a project of their choice by the end of the course. Close readings of contemporary graphic novels will further inform students’ own work throughout the course. Students must have completed either Drawing the Graphic Novel 1 at Shoreditch or Drawing Comics and Graphic Novels 1 at Central.
