"This year, will be my seventh year with Venice Arts. I've been the lead cartoonist in a super fun and fulfilling workshop where other mentors and I guide students on a ride in the creation of comics from seeing the structure of a story all the way to digital coloring and lettering of their own one-page comic. It's a true multi-media class, in that we all hand draw using pencil, pen and ink only to then, digitally scan out the line artwork to finally, digitally embellish the color and lettering. Along with this approach, I guide the students on anatomy and proportion of a body, using shapes, perspective, world-building and other experiences of my own. The workshop at Venice Arts is by far and away my most favorite day of the week."
