Cartoons are great at breaking down complex ideas into their most basic truths while creating compelling arguments that can sway the masses.
Also, they can tell a really solid fart joke.
Beginner and intermediate artists will create buttons, stickers, simple animations and, of course, comics while learning to put their thoughts down in clear, communicative drawings. We’ll introduce them to a diverse range of artistic styles and help them hone their storytelling ability.
Taught by James Point du Jour:
James has been cartooning since the first grade, where he would draw knock-off Looney Tunes comics for his friends. A little more recently he created the syndicated comic strip Ellington Way for United Media and worked on the animated series Little Bill for Nickelodeon. Currently, he works as a graphic designer, draws the pet webcomic Sodapop, and illustrates children’s books. (He’s also learning to play the mandolin, but that’s a tale for another bio.)
James’s work can be seen at pointdujourart.com and heysodapop.com. Go take a look!
