Teaching o' the comics

My friend, the painter Terence Donovan, invited me to teach a comics class with him at a local arts center. It's fun--mostly because Terence is a great, warm teacher who the kids love and trust. Then Duffy, the rigid dilettante, hands out "worksheets" and lectures on clarity. Luckily, the kids just draw funny comics and don't take my posturing too seriously. And in fact, they do like the worksheets, for the most part.

Here's some I handed out last week. Each kid blew through them in about 3 minutes!

That's a great lesson! I like the olde-timey hollywood display lettering on page 2, also.

Thanks, Stuart!
