Hey, all! I am putting together a comics/cartoon week for February and in need of a few more volunteers to fill out the schedule of articles.
Are you interested?
To start the week/weekend off, I will be doing an intro article to introduce the writers and topics we’ll be covering through the week. At the end, since for three years I have been amassing resources for people interested in creating comics and have quite a sizeable library of links, Twitter pages, Facebook groups, tutorials, software recommendations and books, etc., I will be closing out the week with a recap and resource share article. (So if you have any you'd particularly like me to include, let me know either in a comment here or via a note!)
However, for all the days in between, we are hoping to have at least two articles.
Here’s what we have so far:
What goes into making a webcomic?
Q+A on digital vs. traditional comics
Getting your foot in the door: How to become a cartoonist
Q+A on comics journalism
How to FINISH your comic
Recap and resource share
Other topics might include: storytelling with words + images, how to write scripts for comics, different kinds of comics and topics, formatting for print vs. webcomics, lettering and fonts, common mistakes and misconceptions, designing and developing characters for comics, manga vs. doujinshi vs. Western comics, history of comics, graphic novels, publishing comics, etc. If you are interested in writing about one of these topics OR you have an idea that is not in either of these lists, go ahead and send me and/or projecteducate a note!
Our deadline is Feb. 1, which gives us a little more than three weeks. If you are concerned about formatting for the ProjectEducate page, I can definitely assist with that when the time comes!
Thanks, and hope to hear from you!
