Whether or not you’re going to Comic-Con in San Diego, if you want to get work in the comics business as an artist, you’ve got to have the right stuff both in your drawings and in your portfolio!

In this one-day, get-it-all-in workshop, veteran comics editor, comics teacher, and Meltdown University Program Director Jim Higgins will go over what every aspiring comics artist needs to know and what they should have in their portfolio. This is a workshop that will cover getting into the comics business as an artist, what comics editors are looking for (and NOT looking for!), and how to make your time (or your art’s time) front of an editor count.  Jim will speak and then review all the attendee’s portfolios.

There are at least ten conventions in the LA area every year (can you believe it?) and every one of those is a chance to show your work to a publisher.

If you’re going to San Diego Comic-Con with your art this is your LAST CHANCE to get a professional critique of your portfolio!

When:  Saturday, July 19, from 11:00am-2:00pm.

Price:   $25 payable the day of the workshop.

Bring:   Your portfolio, ready to go, partly ready, or some samples of your art. Jim will help anyone at any stage of preparation.

We may have to cap the number of people who attend so sign up so reserve a space!

E-mail us at meltdownuniversity@gmail.com and give your full name and e-mail address.
