Is there a specific reason why you chose this specific topic/themes?
I chose this topic because creating comics can be very challenging. Storytelling and illustration are difficult topics, so I wanted to break things up and simplify the way we view them. It would've made learning much easier if I had this class as a student.
What makes your class different from other classes?
It would be my broad scope in both eastern and western comics. My class isn't centered around their differences. Instead, I'll demonstrate how to combine their unique styles & techniques into your comic. Another point that differentiates my class is the professional experience I have with animation and book cover illustration. I'll share valuable insights I've acquired along my journey.
What would be the most important takeaway from your class?
I want to remind people that we're all beginners at the end of the day. If you have patience and a strong passion for drawing comics, you'll get there. I can promise you that. It's completely normal to feel lost when you're learning something new - and that's okay! I hope my class can encourage you to find joy in learning new things.
