CLASS DESCRIPTION: Learn the basics of cartooning in this course with professional cartoonist/illustrator George Broderick, Jr. From creating original characters using basic, simple shapes to inking, lettering and coloring your drawings for that “professional” touch, the next GREAT comic character could be just a few pencil lines away.
INSTRUCTOR: George Broderick began cartooning at age five when he peddled drawings of Mighty Mouse, Woody Woodpecker and Popeye from the back of his little red wagon to the unsuspecting neighborhood moms for a nickel a sketch. He has worked as a professional in comics since 1982. Since then, he has written stories for DC Comics, Marvel Comics and handled both scripting and editing on the LOST IN SPACE and QUANTUM LEAP comic books for Innovation Publishing and editing on LOST IN SPACE: Voyage to the Bottom of the Soul for Bubblehead Publishing.
