Workshop for teachers

Comics go digital

There is no stopping digitisation, not even when it comes to comics. Comic strips can be digitally processed analogue drawings, or be created directly on a computer. There are now specialised apps that make such methods very easily accessible.

Even with digital means of production, the basics of the comic remain the same: It needs content (a story or joke) and form (suitable reduction and abstraction of the subject matter). In this workshop, we use portraits to work on the basics of simplifying a face when drawing (“dot, dot, comma, line – that’s the face, looking fine”). We use analogue and digital techniques and learn about the two approaches’ differences, limits and possibilities.
