The Art of Inking is a class where you’ll learn to ink black and white line art like the comics pros and great illustrators. We’ll go over all different methods of inking on paper using brushes, dip pens, disposable ink pens, brush pens, and even getting special effects using things like sponges (!) Different styles of inking by master artists will be analyzed and taught. There will be some homework, but a lot of the work will be done in the sessions where the students can learn from and help each other.
The class will be taught by me, Jim Higgins. I’ve been working in the comics business for
a million over 20 years. I’ve been an editor at DC Comics, have a small indie comics publishing company (called New Suit), and have taught comics for 16 years at places like The School of Visual Arts in NYC, CalArts, Otis College of Art and Design, UCLA Extension, and here at Melt U.
The start date is Saturday, April 21 from 11:30am to 2:00pm. The series runs for six weeks at Meltdown Comics. For more information click the link and scroll down to “The Art of Inking.”
