Education Explosion!

So, I know I've been lacking with the blog lately, and I apologize, but it's because Comics Experience is doing more than it ever has before. We just wrapped up another sold-out Intro to Comics Writing class and we're doing the Intro to Comic Book Art class and starting up Lettering and Production this Wednesday (you can still sign up!).

I thought this wouldn't be too tough to do all of this all at one time. Boy, was I wrong. And the creators workshop is in full swing as is the book club. We recently had Christos N. Gage and Chris Samnee come to the book club and talk about AREA 10, their excellent Vertigo book. And Peter David just reviewed a script for the Creators Workshop.

Pulling this all together is work, as it turns out. It's fun for me, but the idea is to make sure that anyone who joins the creators workshop, never has a reason to leave it. And that the group as a whole function to support one another.

It's been an eye-opening experience for me, so far, and an extremely rewarding one, seeing the scripts come in, seeing people tackle the artist and writers challenges and networking with one another.

Unfortunately, that means I haven't had time to blog as much lately. I'm trying to change that this week. Trying to hit three blogs this week (let's see if I can make that happen...).

But my point is, I've been really impressed and inspired by the talented people in both the classes and the workshop. And one day, if you want to make comics, I hope you'll join us.
