Teaching about comics

Working on a PowerPoint
Working on my PowerPoints!

It seems that my February is filling up with comics-related teaching appearances! I’ll be talking comics at the following places, including a workshop that you can sign up for…

University of British Columbia

On February 1st, I’ll be a guest of Sarah Leavitt’s comics class in the Creative Writing program at UBC here in Vancouver.

You should read Sarah’s awesome book, Tangles!
I’m going to be talking about lots of general comics stuff, with a bit of a focus on humour-writing techniques. Thanks to Sarah for inviting me! If you’re not familiar with Sarah’s amazing work, check it out.

Laura Secord Elementary

A week later, I’ll be visiting Laura Secord Elementary School to talk about comics. Because it’s a Grade 5/6 class, I’ll probably talk mostly about Laser Moose and Rabbit Boy.

“How to be a Cartoonist” workshops

opus_logo_CLR_RGBAnd here’s the one you can sign up for. I’ll be teaching two “How to be a Cartoonist” workshops on Sunday, February 18 at the OPUS Art Supplies store on Granville Island. These sessions will be one part Q&A and one part giant brain dump of everything I’ve learned about comics. Sign up today!
